Very bad experience

Reviewed 7 january, 2022

This hostel really seems overrated. The toilets are super nasty, security level is low - anyone can basically walk in and out at anytime. Walls are super think, so you can hear everything that’s going on anyway. Privates in the attic are a joke - tiny rooms full of crossbeams. You can’t really judge a hostel by its guests, but the atmosphere was super weird. Common areas indoors are not super cozy, and outdoor areas aren’t really good for ganging out in cold San Cristobal.

good hostel in san cristobal de las casas

Reviewed 7 december, 2019

I really like this place. it has been constantly improved = made nicer over the last 10 years or so. the beds are solid, clean, comfy and warm - s.th. which you will appreciate during those often pretty chilly nights in san cristobal. the stuff is welcoming, friendly + helpful. it is very clean + which gets checked up upon regularly. plenty of lockers at varying sizes. huge bonus is the nightly bonfire - good place to get warm + meet your fellow travellers. breakfast is a bit on the basic side ( toast, jam, fruit, coffee/ tea ) but at least they are not stingy about it. from the bus station it 's about a mile or so. pretty easy to find, too, 24hrs access

NICE PLACE, MEDIOCRE STAFF AND BREAKFAST

Reviewed 7 november, 2018

I am very disappointed with the service! The staff does not even look at you for a Hi or good morning, the girls in the kitchen and reception just ignored you completely! I also think that the breakfast is quite Mediocre :( YES, we know that it is a continental free breakfast but for being in a place where the artisanal and the homemade thing is highly valued ... to give you the COSTCO jam?? I mean, seriously? Added value guys !! The cups of coffee are plastic, horrible smell with chlorine so it would be impossible to describe if Coffee was good or not :( It is very unfortunate because the place is very nice and in good conditions though and its staff does not help, definitely, I would NOT RETURN!

Calm hostel in city center

Reviewed 18 october, 2018

I stayed 2 nights in this hostel with my family during a visit in Chiapas. Loved the nature vibe with so many plants. It is right in the center and within walking distance to San Cristobal sights, while still offering a relaxing and calm atmosphere. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The rooms cozy and clean. I recommend staying here! P. S. Don't forget to bring warm clothes to San Cris! Very chilly nights even in summer.

Good for a couple of nights

Reviewed 4 october, 2018

The hostel is located right in the center of the town, literally 10 minutes walk from everywhere. Everything was fairly good considering the area. Atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, rooms are decently sized and clean. Breakfast is included but it's at the bare minimum.
