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

Simple rooms with shared bathrooms. You get what you pay for here. The rooms are some of the best priced in San Cristobal as they come with a great breakfast. But they are very basic (bed, desk, chair and 2 spare blankets). Both areas have kitchens and computers. Bathrooms need a update as they are pretty worn and rooms need... More

This place is just perfect for what it is. It has a nice private courtyard where you can relax, eat your breakfast (nice breakfast btw) and fix some trips with the staff. The room we stayed could fit 4 but we got it as a double. The rooftop terrace is a nice thing too. I liked the location, not directly... More

This is a great place to stay while in San Christobal. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean and the included breakfast is an added bonus. The coffee is outstanding also. The place is close to everything, shops, restaurants and things to see... The wifi is also top notch here. Do go in confidence if you're looking to... More

Thank you for the both night, it was a pleasant house and very nice staff. The breakfast was also very good and everything clean. When we left the place to Guatemala, it was early and the owner gave us a breakfast bag, so friendly. Thank you for everything

The staff does not get any friendlier than here, even though they only speak spanish. The owners are wonderful also, being there each morning at breakfast. A substantial hot breakfast of eggs and meat or a fruit plate with good coffee. The rooms are spartan, but always clean. Wonderful small balcony in my room to sit at and enjoy the... More

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...
