My son, husband abd i stayed in the hostel for 4 nights. Loved it! We left very happy. The room was always clean. We had a private bathroom and curtains lol. Someone mention that in anotger comment. Just a block away from everything. Overall a great experience. We will be staying there in the future.

I spent two weeks here at the beginning of March and I can't sing their praises enough on every level. Lovely friendly staff, excellent location (a 5-10 minute stroll to the main plaza), lovely clean bright room and comfy bed and wonderfully soft pillows, hot water, en-suite toilet and shower, good breakfast, and all for 200 pesos a night, breakfast...

Denis and Adriana were amazing hosts. We arrived there at 6am after taking night bus from Oaxaca and we were offered warm tea which we desperately needed. We have taken special pack which included 3 nights with breakfast and trips to Canyon del sumidero and palenque and it was worthy. Breakfast was simple and very tasty. We were staying in... More

The room was very very basic without curtains and feels like you're sleeping in a garage or prison. It was el gite 2 where I was staying across the street. It takes a while before the water in the shower gets lukewarm. Then after a minute or two it gets cold again. So quick showering here! Also there was a... More

We stayed at this place with my friend for 2 nights and we had a great time. It is a little bit outside of the center and you have to walk around 10-15min to the main plaza. We were staying in a second building in front of the one where the reception was. There was a clean kitchen we used... More

This is a nice, simple choice. Everything about this place is simple, which is not by any means a bad thing. The room was nice, though the mattress was a little on the bendy side. Simple but nutritious breakfasts, they even give you four choices and bring out a menu. Oh, and you get 'mas cafe' which is grand. There... More

This place was great because of the staff (speaks english). The owners were really helpful and they have a booking agency in the hotel that makes it easy to book both tours and bus tickets without charging more money than anywere else. The rooms were a little dissapointing compared to the price we paid. They are very basic and really... More

This was a fantastic, reasonably priced hostel/hotel within walking distance of most everything in San Cris. The man who runs it is extremely friendly and accommodating. I stayed in a single room across the street in their "second" location, which felt safe and secure, and had a great rooftop terrace. The Wi-fi worked fine and the breakfast was pretty good... More

We checked out several hostels in San Cristobal and this is by far the nicest of the budget places to stay. The building across the street has shared bathrooms and is very quiet. Internet worked, and the hostel hosts were very gracious. The rooms are basic, but we slept well. We even got fresh towels on our second day. The... More
