A beautiful, cosy place with tastefully decorated rooms situated around a lovely little courtyard. The staff are fantastic; friendly and helpful. The rooms are spotlessly cleaned every day and almost every flat surface has a vase of fresh flowers on it. Good breakfast; cereal, toast, fruit, home made jam, eggs and an endless supply of coffee. They also run a whole series of trips around town and the surrounding area, which are well worth doing and include trips to villages which would be pretty hard to organise on your own.
Nice kitchen, a bit small but well kitted out. Also has it's own laundry.
Nice 5 minutes stroll from the centre of San Cristobal, though you'll need a taxi from the bus station if you've got heavy bags though as it's the other side of town, about a 30 minute walk.
Great value for the price, especially if you've just come from anywhere further North- you'll be astonished what your money gets you!
The only slight downside is that when it's fully booked it can seem a bit crowded, but then if it was any bigger it wouldn't be so nice!
