Location is perfect, 5 minutes walking distance from the touristic center, 10 from the awesome market(s). Grocery and convenience stores, laundry, eating shacks and restaurants right at the corner. The whole hostel and the bathrooms couldn't be cleaner, the rooms, private or dorm,... More

Between the excellent breakfast and the chill vibe of Casa Gaia you're sure to have a peaceful stay in San Cristobal there. The hostel was always clean and theres a well equipped kitchen and a beautiful back garden to enjoy your meals! Definitely would recommend.

We stayed in a private room in this very comfortable and friendly hostel. Although it was run by volunteers it was a small hostel and the manager ran a tight ship. It was always very clean - the bathrooms were cleaned maybe 4 times a day! And we felt very relaxed there - no parties here.There was a garden to... More

So much better than the hyped Planet Hostel around the corner. Rooms are large and clean, managers are nice, and competent. Nice (hot) shower, good internet. Pleasant courtyard, pleasant vibe. Quiet. Be careful: the slope to the front door can be VERY unexpectedly slippery.

Though coming there without a reservation I felt welcome from the first moment in Casa Gaia. It is located very closely to the center of San Cristobal. The dorm was absolutely clean, as well as bathrooms and the kitchen (which is well equipped by the way). Breakfast there is GREAT. Being used to only toast with something like marmelade, but...

The hostel is just tunned on the right wave. Chilled and relaxed atmosphere. The owners are very friendly and helpful. They serve super tasty breakfast. I absolutelly fell in love with the place. I travell alone and in most hostels I also feel alone. Definitelly not in that one! I made some new friends in Casa Gaia.
