We stayed at los Camellos for 4 nights on the recommendation of our student daughter. We had a double room which was spacious and pleasant with lots of local textiles. We enjoyed making meals in the shared kitchen and sitting out in the flowery courtyard to eat or to chat. The other guests were a mixture of nationalities and all...

The best hostal I found in San Cristobal! The rooms are spacious, clean and lightly as the bathroom! The garden is amazing for chilling! But the best thing is without a doubt the owners: nice and helpful! You just feel like home! THE PLACE TO BE! Muchas gracias para la buena onda!

I stayed at Los Camellos for 4 nights, and they were so kind and the bed was comfortable. I had a late arrival and they stayed up to welcome me! The kitchen is large and lovely, there is always coffee, the garden is a delight, the vibe is peaceful, not party, it is also clean and well maintained. The location...

Cosy hostel, very peaceful and relaxed. I'm usually a restless traveller who likes to move on quickly but it was easy to stop here for five days. The hostel is clean and has well equipped kitchen if you want to cook for yourself.

We had a lovely calm stay at the Rincon de los Camellos, with friendly hosts and happy guests, clean and comfortable rooms, and colourful decoration! The courtyard was peaceful, with people relaxing in the sunshine and gave a real feel of calm. There was a large kitchen and fridge in case you want to cook some food rather than eat...

Just had the best sleep I've had in 6 months of travelling in one of this hostal's ultra-comfy beds. The staff are very warm and welcoming and there's a nice cosy communal area to sit and play a bit of guitar. Kitchen is well-equipped and always clean. Will definitely come back here next time.

My son, his girlfriend and I stayed at this hostel for 2 weeks. This was my first experience ever at a hostel and I have to say, the people running Los Camellos are very professional, very friendly and accommodating. A good sized kitchen allows for ample room to cook your way, to get free coffee, and sample some of the...

What a relief! After trying two other hostels in San Cristobal I was so relieved to find Los Camellos! Friendly, clean, good atmosphere, and quiet at night. Nice courtyard for hanging out in, and hot water for showers. I felt so much more comfortable here and because the kitchen roomy and light, and is kept clean. I found myself cooking—and...
