“Wonderful place to stay in San Cristobal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

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 and buses are organized by the owner without any charge. Thanks for a great time, Axel and Annelou

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 mirrors (mirror available in common bathroom area). Hosts are fantastic! We booked everything through them and it was so easy. We would stay here again.

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 in the city centre but close by everything.
You can't really go wrong with this, recommended, especially for the price its good value.

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 save money and still enjoy your stay thoroughly. Hope this review was helpful!!!

Room Tip: They have all types of rooms, we chose one with a private bath ; )

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 town. Nice kitchen to use anytime, with WI-fi that works well.
