A great bare bones option in San Cristobal - 10 minute walk to the Cathedral. There are two buidlings and the main building is definitely a better option (though you don't always have a choice - for the first night at least). The other rooms are a bit dim and less access to light. It's clean, hot water takes awhile,... More

This affordable hostel is really well located & the managers, Denny & his wife, are incredibly helpful. The hostel is a great launching spot for the many attractions around SC & Denny makes booking etc really easy. The rooms are quite old & basic. While secure, the metal bolts on doors everywhere & concrete walls & floors mean you hear... More

My partner and I booked a room at this so called bed and breakfast through trip advisor and when we booked we specifically required a room to be ready since we were arriving at four in the morning. The owner messaged us back and confirm both the reservation and our requests. San Cristobal is a pretty chilly place at night... More

This is a great choice for budget travelers. Denis, his wife and staff made us feel very welcome from reception until check-out. The rooms are sparsely furnished but the bed was comfortable and the extra blankets much appreciated at night. The room was clean but some paint and minor bathroom repair would really improve the room. The shower curtains are... More

Stayed here for a couple nights while wondering the city. The staff is super helpful and you can book your ADO bus tickets here if you want (the guy who runs it spoke English, French and Spanish so this was really helpful). They offer simply tasty breakfasts (eggs/yoghurt & fruit/toast). The rooms are clean and quiet. It is located a... More

Hostel is cheap! We paid around €12,- for a private double in a building 50m from the main building. This includes breakfast (scrambled eggs or fruit with yoghurt and tea/coffee) which is perfect. Staff is very helpful and friendly! Location is ok. The thing that could improve is toilets and showers. They were old and not clean. There were only... More

We stayed at Le Gite del Sol for 6 days and really enjoyed our stay there. There is two sections of the hotel, one with private bathrooms and another section across the street with shared bathrooms. We chose a room with a private bathroom since we felt like it would be more convenient. The room had all the amenities necessary... More

we stayed here for three nights (extended by one). The rooms are very basic but the staff is amazingly friendly. Offering help with everything and even arranging tours and transport for less than the agencies in town. Internet connection is not the fastest and fails every now and then. The breakfast is included and amazing (especially the hot chocolate!!!).
