The Hostelz.com Review

Puerta Vieja Hostel is a great, friendly, and social hostel in the perfect location to explore the brilliant city of San Cristóbal.

The Location

Located an easy, twenty-minute walk from the ADO bus terminal and only two blocks from the main square, this hostel has the perfect location to explore the city. It is only a few minutes' walk from the three main pedestrian streets, including the main restaurant streets. If you are not taking part in the group hostel dinners you have plenty of options nearby, including many street food stalls. You have banks and supermarkets within a couple of blocks as well as plenty of bars and cafes.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The hostel is a typical, Colonial-style house with the rooms surrounding the courtyard, and then some more on the upper level as well; with a noise curfew of 10:30 p.m., there isn't a problem when it comes to noise. The bunk beds are super comfortable and have curtains around them for added privacy; they provide lockers big enough to store your entire bag and they give you the key so no need for your own locks.

The bathrooms are single sex and very well set out. You have a few showers and toilets as well as a basin area and they are super clean. There is plenty of room to get changed and hang your things while showering. They also provide you with free shampoo and soap.

Common Spaces

This is where this hostel nails it -- there's so much common space, and so many social activities! If you are looking to meet fellow backpackers, this is the place for you. You have the central courtyard area, although it is fully covered for the unpredictable rain. There are couches as well as table tennis. There is a lounge with Netflix and a fully stocked kitchen to whip up meals (although they offer a nightly, reasonably priced dinner that changes every night; like the free breakfast, the food is unreal!).They also have a backyard with some hostel dogs, and a bar that gets quite rowdy most nights. They have offers almost every day, from free cocktail parties to half-price cocktails.

Summary

This is the perfect hostel if you are looking to meet fellow travelers. It is the ideal mix of party and chill, and the staff are very knowledgeable when it come to what to see and do in San Cristóbal.

Hostelz.com Guest Reviews


Staff is great and interaction with others is easy.

The first 2 nights I spent in the dorm and while the beds are comfortable there was too much distraction for me, some people were sick. I switched to a private room shared bath for the next 4 nights which was perfect for me. The breakfast, dinners, and the specials each night brought the hostal together more than any other I have stayed at, allowing for an easy connection with others. I will stay there again. Nigel is the most important reason for why this hostal stands out, not to say the rest of the staff do not do an excellent job. Thanks to all of you for your service and kindness.

Puerta Vieja Hostel is for everyone who wants to meet other travelers, party, and be spoiled with great food!

The Location

The hostel is located two minutes away from the main square of San Cristobal and you can easily access the town from the hostel. Next to the hostel are some coffee shops and a big supermarket, where you can buy drinks and food for cooking and all the necessities. Besides that, there are local restaurants in walking distance, and of course all the restaurants and nice coffee places in the main walking street and the main square. The hostel itself is next to a street corner and you can easily miss it. Locals know the hostel, and if you pay close attention you can see the outside sign and then just need to follow the corridor to the inside. The hostel is basically a big inside area with the building around the inner courtyard.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms and whether dorm or private are fairly big and are with taste. There is a wooden floor and a tweedy stone wall, which fits in with the good taste of the hostel overall. The bathrooms, separated men and women, are big and have a lot of toilets and showers. Also they are very clean and have a hook inside for the cloth.

Common Spaces

The main common area is huge. You find a couch, some tables with benches and chairs, and also some comfortable armchairs. Also there is an outside area next to the bar, where you can relax in the garden and sit around there. We believe in the garden is where the yoga course is. You will also find a big kitchen where people can cook at the same time. We're not sure if you really want to, since the hostel has a chef who is offering proper meals for a good price certain days out of the week.

Summary

Puerta Vieja is as good as described above, and the people managing it know what is necessary and are in the process of improving the hostel and making the stay even more pleasant. The hostel is very clean and the vibe is very pleasant. It is one of the hostels where people plan on staying for a few days and end up staying there long term.

Very nice

We really liked our stay in this hostel. The stuff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms where big and clean. There was a nice garden and an indoor area. The breakfast was good but on the second day a little bit little. you can decide between a sweet and a salty option. The location of the hotel is very good just 2 streets from the city Center.
