I stayed at Posada del Abuelito for four weeks while doing research in San Cristobal. As a first time, solo (for part of the time at least) female traveler, Posada del Abuelito was the absolute best!!
I had a single room with a desk and windows, and Nilly, one of the amazing staff there, was so accomodating with my needs. PLUS when I got food poisoning from a place in town, she fixed me an herbal remedy to drink every morning for the next nine days. "Nurse Nilly" is the best.
I really can't rave about this place enough. It felt like home, the staff like family. Breakfast was simple and wonderful. The other travelers who I met there were great, too!
Sometimes at night it does get loud though! Not at the hostel, but near it. People in San Cris like to party. So buy some earplugs!
