I had an amazing stay at a beautiful and big room at the back of the hostel. They first wanted to put me in one of the private rooms with a shared bathroom, but this room was absolute rubbish, under the roof, with holes in the walls and smelling really bad. So I moved to an incredibly big room which...

San Cristobal is one of my favorite places in the world. It's absolutely stunning. Rossco's makes it easy for you to explore it all and can do everything from provide recommendations to schedule tours and shuttles. The nighttime bonfire makes it easy to meet other travelers as well!

Rossco has a great layout centred around a courtyard with a fire pit and generally a really friendly vibe. The kitchen and communal breakfast encourages mingling and a very sociable atmosphere. The staff were also particularly helpful when my boyfriend and I were very sick. Thanks Rossco!

I stayed in a four bed room. If you have the opportunity get the bed above the stairs, it's like your own little private room just without a door. Lockers are huge, wifi works great, the location is really good. They do bonfires every night (except when it rains obviously) and you can book all your tours and transfer to...

Great little backpackers hostel. Close to the central area of San Cristobal, the hostel has both private rooms and dorms, a couple of communal areas and a kitchen. Staff are helpful and speak English. Great Wi-Fi in the rooms, decent breakfast. The private rooms are spacious with double beds, and decent shower

We've stayed at Rosscos 2 times now and highly recommend it. The double rooms are spacious, bright and have nice bathrooms. We peeked into the dorm rooms too, which looked nice. They have so many offers here as well - stay 1 night free if traveling by motorbike and more. There's a communal kitchen for cooking, a bonfire in the...

Loved Rossco's! In a great location close to town and walk-able from bus station. Place has a great vibe, with a fire lit every night to hang out at. Extremely clean and breakfast daily. We stayed in the 4 room dorm, and the 10 room (a bit squashed but still good). Organised transfers and tours through the front desk too.
