Laid back environment. Innexpensive, clean, friendly. The people is always willing to help you. Very few blocks from Central Park. I stayed in a shared room with shared toilets but it was fine, clean.

This place was a series of disappointments, one after another, with nearly each interaction I had with the staff. There are plenty of nice places to stay in San Cristóbal but this is not one of them. When I arrived I was informed that they didn't have a room for me, despite reserving three weeks in advance. I was "upgraded"...

Very friendly and welcoming staff. They will make sure to keep you happy during your stay! The location is very central in a quiet street. You can take yoga classes directly in the hostel. The teachers were excellent and it was pleasant to be able to just drop in a yoga class without leaving the hostel ;-) Beautiful experience.

Ganesha Posada is a small, simple little hostel not too far from the Zocalo in San Cristobal. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were warm and clean. The way the hostel is laid out means there isn't really a central social area so if you're looking to meet lots of people or party this probably isn't your best...

I spent a week here and it's a very comfortable place. Their private rooms are super affordable. The staff has been helpful and kind at all times. The yoga room is great, available for guest use whenever, and the classes have been enjoyable for a total beginner.

We loved staying here. A super cool laid back hostel with gorgeous rooms and outdoor areas. Comfy beds and nicely decorated. Breakfast was basic but sufficient, and served in a lovely cosy kitchen. The staff were really nice and helpful, and there were daily yoga classes for a reasonable price. Location was great, being in close proximity to shops &...

I had an absolutely lovely time at this place. The family who run it are lovely people, calm and helpful and genuine. The hostel is pretty, the beds are comfy, the other travellers who stayed there when I was there were friendly and invited me out for beers (great to have company when you're travelling alone), the breakfast is generous....

This is one of the places where you get what you want. Room was pretty comfortable (like the one show in the picture). Price was very reasonable and people in charge its very friendly.

We had a great time at this hostel. It's really well designed with lovely double private rooms. The staff were super friendly and the whole place had a great atmosphere. It was a great location as well, close to all of the good spots in San Cristobal.

I stayed here for 2 nights and 2 days. First day they were out of gas. I could not cook. I washed rice to start cooking but I learned they are out of gas when I turned on the stove. They informed me that they will get gas tomorrow. Well, that screwed up my mood and dinner. Second day, they...
