Reviewed 29 July 2010

I stayed with two friends at Hostel Miramar for 3 nights in July 2010. We were greeted promptly by Frida, and we were offered a place to store our belongings because we had arrived before check in and the room was being cleaned. My friend felt sick upon our arrival (after a 9 hour bus from Puerto Escondido), and Frida offered her something to drink. While our friend relaxed in the family's home, Frida showed us a book of different things to see in and around San Cristobal. Manuel spent time with us each day, talking to us about the city's sights, history, or life in general. Frida and Manuel made this hostel so great. Our room was clean with cleaning service each day. We were provided towels and fresh sheets. The room was a little small, but it was just what we needed for a place to sleep between our days of adventure in this great city. San Cristobal was an amazing city, and the Hostel Miramar is located only about 6 blocks from the city center. It was easy to walk to several markets, etc. from this location. Cabs are also very available outside of the hotel, and they typically only charge 25 pesos. There is a kitchen area available for guest use, and although we didn't use it many other people did and they found it to be sufficient. Manuel and Frida helped us to arrange a tour to Cañon Sumidero, which I recommend seeing. They arranged pick up from the hotel which was great! The Hostel Miramar was not luxourious, but it was certainly a cozy and safe feeling place. We enjoyed our stay very much as 3, college students traveling Mexico. I would recommend this hotel without a doubt!!

We had a fabulous 4 nights at Hostel Miramar. The owners are delightful and gave us great recommendations on restaurants, places to see, etc. We have 2 small kids and the shared refrigerator/kitchen meant we could serve the kids breakfast before heading out for a day of sightseeing, which was great. The location was fantastic - just a short walk from center of town and easy to get to the pedestrian streets.

We stayed few nights. It was clean and friendly (also speaking english). We talked to some other people who stayed also in some other places. They also gave high credist to this place. If you do not need special comfort - highly recommendable. I would stay next time there as well.

We stayed one night in a hostel close to the Miramar but it was really loud. So we saw the sign of the Miramar while going downtown and stopped by...There, we paid only 200 pesos, which is like 20$ canadian (almost the same as our hostel), for a night for 2 people in a conventional room, very clean, renovated, with TV and plenty of hot water. The hotel (because it's more like a motel than a hostal), was very quiet because the rooms are behind the house of the owners, not on the street. By the way, the owners, Manuel and his wife were very sympathic and helpful. It gave us a glimpse of living in a Mexican family. Also, beside, there's a lavanderia who offers fair prices and it's about three blocks from the main streetwalk. We stayed two nights at the Miramar and we highly recommend this hotel! If we go back, we'll surely stay at the Miramar.

Really enjoyed our stay at the Hostel Miramar. It is a hostel, not a hotel but it was really clean, the owners were incredibly friendly and helpful (although being able to speak Spanish is an advantage - our Spanish isn´t great and we did fine), and best of all, it is quiet (well as quiet as you get in Mexico). We paid 200 pesos for our room with private bath and felt it was really good value for money. The owners were also happy to look after our luggage until our overnight bus left even though we had to check out of our rooms. Overall, a good choice if you stay in San Cristobal.
