My friend and I stayed in a private room here for 4 nights, it was really quiet which was a pretty nice shift from the last hostel. We were sure to wake up for the breakfast every morning as it was seriously amazing, cooked by the sweetest lady. She gave you three options of how to have your eggs (the veggie omelet is gooood!), each day was different, served with fresh bread toasted with jam, freshly made salsa and coffee or tea. Hostel was clean, free of smells and mold, staff was super friendly, they even looked after our bags for a few hours between our checkout time and when our bus was leaving. The courtyard is sunny with lots of vibrant plants and flowers. Wifi worked great. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is because of the hot water situation, we had no hot water...but I learned on our last night they turn the water heater on from 6am-11am only for the first floor, the rest of the hostel gets hot water all the time. They were also having an issue with a part from their water heater, but a super sweet man working turned the water heater on special for me so i could shower.
Really sweet people.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 2nd floor if you can, hot water all day!

We stayed here for just one night. The staff were a real mix, overall very nice and keen to help though not very efficient, a bit like watching a comedy!
Room was a bit cold, but lots of blankets on the bed and I had a great nights sleep.
Wifi service was excellent.
Breakfast was not too great - we had fresh fruit and juice that was nice, though the coffee was undrinkable. We also had some very dry toast (stale?), some cheap margarine and some weird marmalade that smelt funny - we're not that fussy (eat street food and all sorts) but I couldn't eat it. Meanwhile the family guests next to us somehow scored big plates of eggs, ham and frijoles. Made us feel really uncomfortable watching the difference, especially looking at our poor breakfast, with no attempt was made to offer us the same.

Very clean and large rooms, quiet but close to the main historical centre. It was very good value too and the owner was very hospitable and accommodating to us. It was also great value for budget travelers like us!

Well located on walking distance from all the main places in San Cristobal. We were happy that we could park our rental car inside.

Price is relatively low. Rooms are clean and ok. Staff is friendly but did not really try to understand us with our limited spanish.

We can definitely recommend you to stay here but still a lot can be improved (especially staff and breakfast)

Ofilia and Ernesto as well as the staff are very helpful, friendly and treated us as family members. The included breakfasts are generously proportioned and delicious. We appreciated staying in this quiet neighborhood that is only a few minutes walk from all the action (and noise). I would recommend this B&B without hesitation.

We recently spent several weeks traveling through Chiapas, Mexico and passed through San Cristobal de las Casas three separate times. Each time we stayed at Posada Sancris on Tapachuela street (2 days each time). You will not find a cleaner, more friendlier place to stay than this Posada. There are several types of rooms to choose from upstairs and down and all are very economical with breakfast included (We favored room # 4). The area is quiet and peaceful yet only a short walk to town. If you have a car, there is offstreet parking. If not, the owners can arange for trips to all the major attractions witin Chiapas. To say the owners are courteous is a huge understatement. They will help with whatever problem you have and do it eagerly. Wi-Fi is free throughout the Posada and the grounds. The signal is very strong at all locations. Rooms have full baths and showers.
