“Fabulous place!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

I stayed at Posada Leon de Jovel for over a month in total, split between September/October and coming back in December. I thought the hostel was brilliant, with knowledgable and friendly staff and chatty, adventurous travelers. The flower-filled courtyard was filled with color and lovely murals adorned the walls. For those who enjoy cooking, the fully stocked kitchen was large enough to accommodate the guests with enough dishes/cookware for everyone. I really enjoyed the early morning chats over coffee (for we early birds..) and the close proximity to the local markets. Everything is within easy walking distance. The rooms are spacious and clean with enough blankets to keep warm on the cold winter nights.

Room Tip: Facing the back courtyard, the rooms on the left side upstairs would seem to get more daily sun, whe...

We stayed here while traveling through Mexico. There are only shared bathroom facilities, but that wasn't a problem. Well equipped kitchen, tv room, hammocks around the place. Very relaxing feel. We had a small incident, which has been resolved thanks to the owners. I would def. stay here again if we ever come back to San Cristobal. Not sure if it is relevant, but there were quite a few long term people staying there.
