Accommodation Information

The building is a big neo-classic house, though modernly refurbished to meet the traveler’s needs. The fun and friendly ambiance will make you feel comfortable immediately, along with our accommodation options, which are suitable for all families, individual travelers or groups of different sizes. There are 17 full bathrooms which are spacious and clean at all times. Our main purpose is for you to have fun and feel cozy enjoying your visit in San Cristobal.

The hostel has three common areas, for the travelers to meet and share experiences, chat and have a good time. The garden at the back has got a deck and hammocks where you can chill out. BBQs take place in a regular basis, so expect a few of these! There is a Temazcal in the garden too, which is the traditional Mayan sauna, experienced through a purifying ritual. The main central patio is the place to have your meals, whether prepared by yourself in the fully-equipped self-catering kitchen or by our chef, so you can taste an authentic regional or Mexican meal. The rooftop terrace offers one of the best views of San Cristobal while enjoying popular drinks from Chiapas, Mexico and around the world.

We guarantee spacious accommodations, be in the private rooms with ensuite bathrooms or in the rooms and large dorms with shared facilities, within a range of competitive prices, breakfast included. Our private rooms with ensuite bathrooms cater up to four people, whilst there are private rooms with shared bathrooms catering from three to six people. We have two large dorms, for eight and sixteen people each.

Daily housekeeping and clean fresh bed linen are included in the price. Towels are included for private rooms or available to dorms for a small fee. Wi Fi, hot water and power showers, a safe deposit box at the front desk and luggage storage are among the services the hostel provides for free.

Location Information

We are located in the best area of San Cristobal. Right in the heart of the city centre, this way you won’t have to take a taxi or walk too much after a good party night. Only one block away from the Plaza de la Paz (Main Square) and a short walk to the main bar and restaurant area. We are a 20-minute walk from the bus station and a short walk to the transportation to the nearby villages. We are close to the main fruits and vegetables market, as well as Santo Domingo’s crafts market. There is a supermarket half a block away from the hostel, or a bus stop to take the colectivo (van) to the big supermarkets. The chemist, the post office and other facilities are easily reached within less than a 10-minute walk, as well as the best places to go out. It can’t get easier than this!
