Locked very close to the market, this hostel has private rooms with a skylight, big beds, hot water in the shower and includes breakfast. They have a few dogs at the lobby so beware if it's bothers you. They also offer tours from the hostel

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

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.
