The Hostelz.com Review

Posada Leon de Jovel provides an ideal, economical, and fun stay close to the center of San Cristobal De Las Casas. Although slightly cheaper options can also be found in San Cristobal, we would definitely recommend this one, given all it offers.

The Location

Posada Leon de Jovel (or Nagual as the sign outside reads) is located about eight minutes on foot from the central square of town (zocalo), less than a five-minute walk from the pedestrian street of Guadalupe, about a fifteen-minute walk from the main, huge, colorful, and very cheap market (also the main station of most local buses or collectivos) and about twenty minutes away from the first and second bus terminals (tickets can also be purchased from an office on the street of Guadalupe). Restaurants, bars, mini markets, bakeries, grocery shops, and a supermarket are also located nearby.

Rooms and Bathrooms

There are three clean bathrooms located within the building, which means that rarely will you have to wait to use one. The shower areas are huge, hot water is available twenty-four/seven, while all showers have very good water pressure.

There are dormitories as well as private rooms for one to four people. All rooms are basic but clean and fully functional. Dormitories include bunk beds, lockers, and sufficient blankets are provided (San Cristobal can be a bit cold during the winter months). Private rooms are equipped with double bed (with decent mattresses), a table with chairs, shelves, a mirror, and sufficient plugs. Make sure to ask for a discount if you are planning to stay for a while as better rates are provided for a week, month.

Common Spaces

There is a big welcoming area as you enter the hostel with a reception and a meeting area. A well equipped kitchen (two fridges, oven, utensils) is provided, which is usually quite clean (no breakfast is included, although home cooked snacks are often sold for a few pesos each). Apart from that, there is an indoor dining area, a huge garden with two tables and chairs, another common area with a table and chairs upstairs, and a big terrace. Throughout the building, the walls are decorated with some impressing murals and paintings. Meeting fellow travelers is easy as there are usually people hanging out in the common areas, playing music. However, given the many different common spaces, it's also possible to find a more peaceful area when you feel like it. During our stay, the hostel was relatively quiet from 11:30 p.m. to 10 a.m. more or less.

Summary

There seems to be a constant flow of people coming by and working for their stay, which practically means that the hostel is kept in a good condition and that there is a good vibe and people who can provide useful information about the city and what's happening at any given time. Given the atmosphere, the facilities provided, and the relatively low price, this hostel is surely worth trying out during your stay in San Cristobal.
