“A very special place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2011

Posada Ganesha is a wonderful place in the heart of the beautiful city of San Cristobal de las Casas. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and it felt like a home away from home in no time. The rooms are simple but clean and very comfortable, a great value for a solo traveler is the availability of the dorm space which was large and comfortable with lockers for personal belongings ..the morning coffee, fruit and bread was delicious and I enjoyed starting my day with some time in the beautiful meditation studio. I will go back!

Bi-lingual staff (english) welcome you to this pleasant little hostel. There is a lovely little garden surrounded by 3 or 4 rooms, the stand alone cabana and the common room. A cute little water feature attracts humming birds and is nice to sit by.

The room's are basic but clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. ie: thjey are not falling apart and the table, bed and drawers that are provdided are not falling to pieces as you will find in other hostels.

There is also a cool yoga hall by recption. They run yoga classes most days. Two decent sized bathrooms, male and female are kept clean and tidy.

They sell incense too which is a nice touch.

Each room has a little T shaped wooden blessing above the door which i found to be very nice, knowing that the staff care enough to do this bodes well.

The breakfast incliuded in the price consists of coffee, bread and fruit. The kitchen is pretty good though conistsing of a couple of gas burners. Free drinking water is provided and there is a donation box to help cover the cost of this.

Book exchange and TV in the comfortable comming room with sofa's and dinning table.

They also arrange tours here but i didnt go on any so not sure how good they are.

This place has a nice energy, the whole layout, vibe and energy lends itself to soicalable place and is great for meeting people or keeping to yourself if you prefer.

I was staying somewhere else in San Cristobal and i got food poisoning the night before i had to vacate and find somewhere else, during my sleep deprived and weakened state i popped over to Ganesha to book a room, through fault of my own the wrong date was written down for my reservation.

When i arrived the followingf day to find that there were no room's available i was serioulsy disapointed since i was litterally on my last legs through sickness. The guy was very cool about it and called up another hostel, got me a room and then found me a taxi and paid for it himself.

This is a good hostel run by decent people.
