If you love yoga take a class here on Tuesday or Thursday with Allen. Otherwise avoid this place. There are much better hostels in the area and you won't have to deal with dark rooms, minimal hot water, old beat up mattresses, dirty pillows, and one of the surliest hostel managers I've ever encountered.

I recently spent 4 nights at Ganesha Posada in San Cristobal, a return visit for me, and a very happy one. This was part of a 3-week jaunt through the Yucatan and Chiapas, San Cristobal is one of my favourite places in Mexico, despite the cool/cold weather, and Ganesha is my fave place to stay. The property is close to...

My husband and I recently stayed at Posada Ganesha for two nights on our overland trip from Cancun to Mexico City. The place certainly has charm and potential but the rooms are dark, (the first we were offered had no window!) and overdue for a fresh coat of paint. We were aware that there were no en-suite bathrooms and although...

This is a great little find on a budget. The hostel has dorm rooms and private rooms, with breakfast, wifi and HOT showers included. There is a great little courtyard and a communal area to relax in, plus it has its own yoga studio which you are allowed to use to yourself if there are no classes on. They have...

This place is just lovely. Pretty quiet, Indian fabrics on the walls, relaxing, sunny courtyard. The rooms and bathrooms are clean, the staff are friendly and considerate. There are only 2 bathrooms for the 7 rooms but the steaming hot showers and incredible water pressure (a necessity when you have thick long hair) make it absolutely worth it. Breakfast is...

I can warmly recommend this place with its outstanding atmosphere. The simple rooms were definitely great value for the money with its tasty decoration and excellent quality mattress (something you seldom come across when traveling). You also feel that this place takes pride in being clean and hygienic. A further plus is the breakfast served including coffee, tea, fresh fruit,...

For one of the most relaxed environments and great energy spaces that my partner and I encountered in San Cristobal, Mexico I would say that Ganesha Posada made us feel like family.

I stayed in a cheaper hostel for a few nights but then the water went out so I decided to check this place out. The breakfast sucks, the price is expensive considering other hostels in the area, they charge you to leave your bags for the day after check out (I have never had a hostel or hotel do this)....
