One of the best hostels I stayed at during my travels. The atmosphere was fantastic, Hector and Nat who worked there were so friendly and interesting, and the whole hostel was relaxed, fun, with awesome arty quirks everywhere. The amenities were absolutely fine, and they gave great recommendations on where to shop and eat. Didn't want to leave!

Super nice hostel with cool common place to hang out (you can take this literally). But I think the biggest advantage this hostel has, are the wonderfull people that work here. Willing to help and advise you, everytime, but also sitting around the campfire at night with all the other guests (when they are not on duty offcourse). So... great... More

Loved, loved, loved this hostel!!!!!!!! When I showed up in San Pedro, I was dropped off at the hostel, to be honest I wasn't initially blown away by the asthetic, but it had a really cool vibe to it with hammocks set up, and once I stepped fully in, I saw why everyone says to stay here!! I instantly felt... More

Thanks to Hector and Nataniel for their help and great recommendations during my stay. The hostel has a great social vibe. The beds comfy and hot showers. Only reason I give 4 instead of 5 stars is the noise from the construction of renovations at the hostal. These are only during the day but really noisy. The end result should... More

We stayed for 2 nights in this hostel in one of the 6 bed dorms. The hostel is centrally located just off the main street of the town. The hostel staff (especially Nathaniel) were very friendly and willing to answer any query you may have. The rooms were quite small for a 6 person dorm and very dark. The bed... More

Very nice hostel, they work with good tour operators only and always happy to help you with whatever question/problem you have. Interior is very nice, atmosphere is great. My trip wouldn't be so great without recommendations from staff and without their help when I got my transportation cancelled - these guys do much more then you would expect from such... More

We had a great 5 night stay at Hostal Rural. The staff, especially Natanael, were incredibly helpful, friendly, and hospitable. The location is excellent for all your San Pedro activities and the hostel has a great, laid-back vibe. Definitely aimed at a younger crowd. Thanks for an amazing stay!

Hostel was awesome. Comfortable beds, lots of common areas and on the last day they fixed the hot water. Dont book any activities or tours through the hostel. Its cheaper to book direct, sounds obvious but the hostel will tell you the quality is better through them when it is the exact same and over priced.

Many thanks to Hector and the other members of the staff, which made my stay really nice. Except the fact that the rooms are somewhat small and dark & that the showers don't always have hot water, the place is superb. The dining tables are very inviting for social activity, the kitchen is decent - and there are hammocks and... More
