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!!!).

Best hostel of our trip to Mexico! Well organised and good Spanish, English and French was spoken (a relief to us as we had been struggling with our limited Spanish!) We arrived at Gite del Sol early off the night-bus and Dennis was ready to greet us and the many others who arrived early. He certainly got our stay in... More

We arrived at the most ungodly of hours and were still greeted warmly by Dennis, the owner. After registering, he took us across the street to our room, private double with shared bathroom. The room was clean and the bed comfortable and the showers nice and warm! Breakfast in the morning is amazing; choice of coffee, tea or hot chocolate,... More

the room was nice and warm, but noisy. the shower was very close to the toilet, meaning everything got wet. I was not allowed to leave my bag after 5pm, meaning i had to PAY to store it somewhere else - very inconvenient.

We didn't have excessively high expectations for Le Gite del Sol, since their nightly rate is pretty cheap, so we were pleasantly surprised. Although, as other reviewers have mentioned, the rooms are very basic, they are more than sufficient if you don't expect anything lavish. They have decent beds, a table, plug sockets... What else do you really need? Breakfast... More

We arrived early in the morning after night bus from Oaxaca and got a welcoming reception. We got to book our shuttle to Guatemala straight away as planned and everything at excellent prices, less than 20 dollars. The room is just a bed and table but with lights, plug and space to hang clothes. There are 2 sinks outside, 2... More

The owner, his wife and mother in law are the friendliest people you can find! The rooms are cosy, clean and cool at night because of the thick walls, which assures you of a good night of sleep. A breakfast menu with several options is included. This is one of the best value-for-money hostels in Mexico so far! Also, tours... More
