Official Description (provided by the hotel)
El Hostalito, under new management as of February 2013, is a large, single family home converted into a homey hostal. We have a 6-bed dorm and a 4-bed dorm, as well as 4 private rooms. Toilets and showers (4) are located on all three levels. We aspire to maintain a clean, comfortable and friendly environment. We are very close to central San Cristobal, with lots of cafes, restaurants, museums and entertainment close by. Wi-Fi, fully equipped kitchen, simple breakfast included. Hot water. English and Spanish are spoken here. ... more   less
