I would recommend this hostel to anyone. The rooms are fantastic - great comfortable beds and design. Bathrooms are plentiful and clean. There is a great variety of rooms to suit all types of travellers and holiday makers and you can be as involved as you wish with the social aspect of the hostel. The owners are always around and approachable and have great advice and knowledge of the local area. I wish I could have stayed longer, not only because I loved San Cristobel but also because I would have loved to spend more time in the hostel. They have a fantastic bar in the garden, a covered courtyard in the centre, yoga a few times a week, and different social evenings. Fantastic breakfast as well!

The rooms are very nice. There are enough bathrooms and they are cleaned regularly. The common areas are always filled with some people and have a great atmosphere. Various events are organised every night in the garden and bar. Would go there again without a doubt.

Puerta Vieja is genuinely the most wonderful place I have ever stayed. Traveled here in May with my sister- and our two night stay quickly turned into a two week stay- with a very teary goodbye at the end to all of the beautifully wonderful people who make this such a magical, special place. I have never felt so much at home. The sweet staff make it the most comfortable and fun environment. The beautiful garden, SUPER comfortable beds, spacious common areas, fully equipped kitchen- there is really no reason to leave ( and I highly encourage you to stay). Insanely delicious breakfast and nightly dinners and whoop free cocktail night twice a week! Can't say enough good things about this place, and can't wait to return!

Great big friendly mega backpacker hostal. Lots of Europeans, Israelis and South Americans partying hard in San Cristobal aka Mexican Camden Town/Newtown.

Good bar, nice bonfire and breakfasts too. But tatty and very noisy streetside rooms, also the current volunteer staff not always that knowledgeable esp Danny.

If you are after a more Mexican/quieter experience probably not your kind of place. Try Los Camellos instead

I had a fantastic time at this hostel. The owner, Danny, and staff were extremely helpful and friendly. I felt at home in this hostel's gorgeous garden, kitchen, bar, and chill space. The (real mattresses) beds were comfortable and equipt with a locker per person. I had a nice HOT shower in their spacious bathroom. The breakfast was delicious and different every morning (2 options!). I ended up staying much longer than expected because of how great this place is. I highly suggest you stay there! You will never want to leave.
