Rossco Backpackers Hostel San Cristobal Reviews

Rossco Backpackers Hostel San Cristobal is comfortable and clean, and has a good location -- what more could you want?

The Location

Rossco has a pretty good location, a bit north of the main hub of the city but well situated between this hub and the sites of interest to the north. The main area of buses and collectivos is a reasonable walk to the south, but there are plenty of taxis roaming around to help you get there. All the major sights, markets, and attractions are within easy walking distance of the hostel, and while there aren't too many restaurants or shops in the immediate vicinity there are plenty of restaurants down on the main drag of Guadalupe Street near the centre. Self-caterers will have to make the decision whether to do the best they can out of the convenience stores nearby or brave the municipal mercado down the road.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Dorm rooms are eight-, ten-, and fourteen-bed affairs with the option of a female-only dorm as well. The doors to the dorms don't lock, but each bed has an assigned locker for use (bring your own lock). Beds are bunk beds and are very comfortable and quite private; the beds have screens to cover the top half of the bed. Each bed also has its own power socket and light. Private rooms include single-, double-, and triple-bed rooms with the option of an en suite bathroom.

There are sufficient bathrooms and showers, which are all clean and decently roomy. There is a reasonable amount of space in the showers with some hooks and shelving for toiletries and clothes, but the dorm rooms also have a curtained-off changing room available as well.

Common Spaces

Common spaces are plentiful and comfortable. The kitchen is large and decently stocked with everything you could require for basic cooking. There are a few other nooks and crannies around the hostel in which to hang out, with a lounge area next to the entrance (with book exchange); patio area outside the kitchen; upstairs deck; and cozy, bean-bagged TV room/attic. Plus there is plenty of grassy areas to lounge on or do yoga.
The hostel has a fun, chill vibe; the nice common areas make it easy to meet other travelers.


Rossco has a good location and great facilities. There is not much to fuss about, unless you are scared of dogs -- they have a few of them and they seem to rule the roost -- but if you love dogs or like a cozy vibe with your hostel, give Rossco a go.
