We stayed there for three nights and enjoyed it a lot. the garden is beautiful, the staff is helpfull and the breakfast is with eggs, fruit, toast and the best jam in Mexico. The walk to the center is just 5-7 minutes, and the streetlights in the most of the city makes it a nice walk

I think it's the best hostel I've ever been in. We stayed in a private room that was cleaned everyday and was very spacious and welcoming. Everyday there was fresh water in a jar on our table and you can fill your bottles in the kitchen. The hostel is quite with a great yard with hammocks and lots of seating...

We were very happy to stay at this hostel. The rooms are clean and nice. The breakfast is very good - you get corn flakes and chocopops, scramble eggs, fruit, bread, jam, juice etc. However there come almost no water out of the showers.

We arrived following a long over night bus journey and received an extremely warm welcome. It's a very unique colonial style building with lots of character. The place is laid back and well set up for socialising with the most interesting of travellers. The hearty breakfast sets you up well for a day exploring the town. Highly recommended!

Stayed here for 2 nights only, as we had promised to move onto Iguana Hostel to meet up with the owner who I had met on a previous trip to Sancris. What a mistake that was! Posada del Abuelito offers some of the best rates in town, especially for private rooms. Not only that, it is kept spotlessly clean, has...

So clean, so friendly, really good free breakfast. Showers were amazingly hot. Stayed in a private room with shared bathroom, definitely one of the nicest hostels we have stayed in on our travels with a well equipped and clean kitchen. Common areas are great and there's even a room where you can light a fire!
