We stayed at this hostel only for two nights. Everything was great. The staff was very helpful always willing to help you organize tours around Chiapas. The rooms were very good and clean the best thing about the hostel is the garden. Every night there were bonfires at the garden. I really enjoyed my stay there. Strongly recommended

The staff are very welcoming and friendly, and the facilities are great for a hostel, more like a hotel! Breakfast is available each morning, a fire pit...

100% recommend staying here whether it's for 1 night or 10. Staff are super friendly & helpful with directions, tours etc. Hostel, bathrooms & communal kitchen is clean with nice linen provided for beds. They have wifi plus a bonfire every night in the courtyard! Safety is also great they provide a large locker and sell padlocks for 30 pesos

Had a really nice time here, the place is so relaxing, with beautiful gardens and good natured dogs running around. We had a private room, which was beautiful and had great views from the balcony. Kitchen is good and well stocked; breakfast was simple but good.

This place was lovely! My friend and I stayed in the ladies dorm room, it was clean, blankets we super cozy, the shared bathrooms were also clean and there was plenty of hot water. Staff was friendly and informative, the 8-10pm fire each night is a great way to meet people...not too wild party vibes either. People usually link up...
