this is my favourite hostel in mexico! really lovely stay! they have a lovely kitchen, living room (with fireplace for cold wintery nights), clean bathrooms, provide basics such as coffee (but good chiapas coffee) tea, oil, spices and basic cooking bits, have a communal food shelf (great idea!!) and swap shelf. the garden is a gem and very big. the internet connection reaches the other end of the garden so you can chat on skype in peace and have a bit of your own space very easily in the sun. the animals are lovely - at the moment there is an x street dog, a puppy, a kitten, 9 hens for eggs (for guests!) and guinea pigs for the kids to pet - really great environment for the kids. they are growing their own food too which we get to eat - we went mad for the mustard greens. the walls are colourfully painted and the is a bit of magic here. they are trying to do everything they can for guests - they made a city map with all their own favourite places in the city - we had a few great breakfasts and dinners thanks to their recommendations. they gave us loads of info about getting to the villages and juan brought us out on a day trip to chamula one day (FOR FREE!) after 5 days at casa caracol i would really recommend it to families, couples and independent travellers.
