We enjoyed our 5 nights at Le Gite del Sol. Well located and spotlessly clean. Room cleaned and towels changed every day. Friendly staff and owners. English speaking owner really helps us language challenged Kiwis. Good breakfast to set you up for the day. Room had traffic noise but would definitely go back.

We arrived without a booking very early in the morning, they managed to get a room clean and ready for us about 8.30am which was good. The manager seems very friendly and always wanting to help. Because we had a shared bathroom, they took us to the other building over the road. Still decent enough. Breakfast is pretty good, you... More

We found this place via Lonley Palnet. Went there to check it out. The person we talked to even not opened the gate and was unpolite to us. Bad feeling. Not helpful at all. I had some problem to solve and could not count on this "amazing people". Too much Lonley Planet fame, I guess. Luckily there are other good... More

Taking the time to share our wonderful experience with this hostel because reviews are a gift to people searching for a place to stay as well as hotel owners that take pride in what they do. We arrived later that night than we had expected (12:30am), worried that there'd be no one awake to greet us when we pulled up... More

I stayed here in late November 2014 with my girlfriend. It was a great value for our 2 night stay. Accommodations were basic but clean. It was also very cold in San Cristobel for our stay and we were provided with plenty of blankets. The owners were very friendly. When we had to leave very early on the last day... More

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
