Enjoyed our stay. The owners were frieny and helpful with good English and French. The room was basic but clean and fresh towels were provided every day. Breakfast was included and very nice. The shower was hot but small and difficult to get right. Good value for money as it was a little way out of the town, about 10...

Excellent low budget hostel with friendly and English speaking staff. Breakfast with coffee is included and it's actually really good! Stayed in a private room with shared bathroom. The room was not that romantic or inspiring, but it was clean and what we expected of a room this cheap.

This was a great experience! I stayed here with my boyfriend while we were in San Cristobal over the summer. We were pleasantly surprised by the fact that the staff members spoke fluent English. The free breakfast was delicious- they offer options of 3 or 4 (don't remember) type of homemade breakfasts. It's in a very central location, being a...

We decided to stay at Le Gite del Sol because of the recommendation in Lonely Planet and were disappointed. +: We arrived there early after a night bus and could get our room immediately which was appreciated. The price of the rooms is very reasonable and includes a good breakfast. -: The owner - who seems to behave in a...

Arrived following an 8 hour bus journey during a torrential downpour. The roads were awash. I was soaked including my shoes. I knocked on the gate and called out to the staff but they were reluctant to open the gate for fear of getting wet while I stood there freezing. Eventually they found an umbrella and came to the gate...

I'm so happy my girlfriend and I stayed here while in San Cristobal. The free breakfast is delicious, there are workers on staff who speak English, the wifi works, and there's even a quiet rooftop for great mountain views. The staff was extremely courteous, and we had no problems checking in when our bus arrived to San Cristobal in the...

Stayed here for 5 nights and had a private room with shared bathroom. You can't beat the price of this place, and it was secure, clean and the staff were very friendly. Breakfast in the mornings was very good. It's also quite centrally located. We booked two tours through them also, and you can book your bus to other cities...

My stay for 3 nights were satisfactory. A bright , quiet and clean room, kind staff and the breakfast which was not big but OK. I had no complaints.

We enjoyed our 5 nights at Le Gite del Sol. Well located and spotlessly clean. Room cleaned and towels changed every day. Friendly staff and owners. English speaking owner really helps us language challenged Kiwis. Good breakfast to set you up for the day. Room had traffic noise but would definitely go back.

“I had room number 1 which has a capacity of 3 (one double and one single bed). I think that three of the rooms have en-suites in their rooms and the other three sole use of a shower/toilet but it is next door to the room. As I said I think the accommodation across the road has shred facilities.”

“At least avoid staying in El gite 2. Maybe staying in the main building is better and doesn't give you the 'prison feel expierence' I had. It's probably best to avoid the place at all as there are better options nearer to the city center.”
