Due to illness we stayed a lot longer than planned and in four different rooms/dorms. Staff are friendly and keep place spotless. Good breakfast, hot showers, lots of blankets, hammocks, cinema room, cute dogs roaming about, pool table, tours, fire pit, close to the centre, crazy fast internet... Pretty perfect and great place to socialise and meet people. The private...

We arrived at this hostel from Palenque in the evening. The hostel is located relatively close to most things in San Cristobal and offer tours to canyons, lakes, ruins, waterfalls and Guatemala. Every evening there's a small fire around the communal area which is a great place to meet people and warm up. The movie room upstairs has beanbags, hammocks...

Super clean, really good free breakfast, great amenities; kitchen, cinema room, computer, plenty of bathrooms with warm showers, and a lovely vibe that attracts beautiful people. I think all travelers would enjoy staying here. Best night sleep.

My wife and I stayed here in January 2015 for a few nights. The hostel seems to cater to backpackers and anything on 2 wheels, in fact you get a free night (dorm) or discount (on private room) if you're on a bike or motorcycle. The hostel itself is located about a 10 min walk from the main plaza although...

We had a private room with own bathroom booked and on arrival tehy gave us one downstairs near to reception. Unfortunately we asked to be moved as the room was quite dark and felt a bit damp. The staff moved us without issue to a...

Locked very close to the market, this hostel has private rooms with a skylight, big beds, hot water in the shower and includes breakfast. They have a few dogs at the lobby so beware if it's bothers you. They also offer tours from the hostel

We stayed at this hostel only for two nights. Everything was great. The staff was very helpful always willing to help you organize tours around Chiapas. The rooms were very good and clean the best thing about the hostel is the garden. Every night there were bonfires at the garden. I really enjoyed my stay there. Strongly recommended
