This was a horrible place. It is totally faking this hippy love idea, but is actually just a money-making place to rip off travelers. It is Freezing cold. Unfriendly staff. Doing everything they could to try to extort money out of us. Bathroom are dirty.

Me and my partner arrived here after driving everywhere in Mexico. We were both exhausted and found our spirit sanctuary at Ganesha Posada. The Kundalini Yoga classes eased our tensions and we melted into place we were in. The room and kitchen were awesome and we feel alseep to a peaceful rainstorm. It was one of the places we fet...

I booked a private room two days in advance but upon my arrival it still wasn't ready, so I accepted a bed in a shared dormitory. The room wasn't very clean, neither was the bathroom - which is outside the building which is very inconvenient since in San Cristóbal, it gets quite chilly in the morning and in the evening....

Beautiful place with space to rest and enjoy the garden. Very clean bathrooms and friendly, helpful staff. The kindalini yoga lessons are fantastic. My room opened onto the garden and had a comfortable bed with writing desk and chair. I would definitely stay here again and, in fact, would quite like to live here! Nice and central.

Very clean, nice people, yoga studio. If you are looking for a chill yet friendly atmosphere, this is it. The yoga studio which is open for use is a great bonus as well.

I stayed here for about a month in 2009 and had a fantastic time. The hostel has a great vibe to it and is very cheap considering that breakfast is included as well.Fabian, Bely and Laura were also fantastic hosts who made me feel at home for the duration of my stay. I will definately stay here again next time...

I loved this place so much that I ended up staying 2 weeks instead of 3 days. The atmosphere is tranquil, the garden's small but really nice, the staff is super friendly and helpfull. The room has just enough to have a quiet night, nothing too fancy but still comfortable. The shared bathrooms are bigger that what I was used...

Posada Ganesha is a wonderful little hostel in the center of San Cristobal. Peaceful and friendly atmosphere with a beautiful courtyard, kitchen and a little rec room type area. Also, daily yoga and meditation classes! Fabian, the owner, is a wonderful and gracious (and english speaking) host. Five stars!!

My husband & I stayed there a few days ago and only stayed for one day. We have had experiences with bed bugs and once we investigated the bed... there were signs of them living there as well so we ended up changing rooms ( not interested in meeting with bedbugs again!). The rooms were small & smelt of mold...

This place was clean and charming, with a laid back vibe. One of the managers/owners wants to start a business where he charges for a pub crawl in the town (in addition to drinks) which is maybe a bit silly, but what can you do. Maybe it would work. He's from the States and was a bit too cool for...
