A lovely colonial house situated in one of the oldest barrios of the city, Posada del Abuelito is a wonderfully friendly, cozy and charming posada with clean and comfortable rooms, furnished in rustic Mexican style.

Facilities include: an immaculate 9 bed dormitory, private rooms with shared bath and private rooms with en-suite bath. Guests enjoy the use of a clean, community kitchen, warm fireplace and HOT water 24 hours per day. All rooms are equipped with electrical outlets, complimentary towels, extra blankets and hangers. We offer a complimentary breakfast of fresh bagels or pan dulce, jam, butter, coffee, tea and fruit.

The friendly, multilingual staff is on site 24 hours per day and always happy to assist with tourist information, tour and transport bookings and lots of helpful advice!

There are several places to sit, relax and enjoy our beautiful patio and small garden. Guests are welcome to spend the chilly nights in front of the fire in our shared TV room -- where they can watch movies, roast marshmallows, use the computer or just hang out and make new friends.

Other amenities include FREE internet and Wi-Fi, FREE purified drinking water, FREE luggage storage and FREE lockers in the dorms. In addition, we have our own filtered water tanks, so when the rest of San Cristobal runs out, we are still taking long, hot showers!

Please come join us at our beautiful, historic and friendly home! It's a wonderfully warm and relaxed vibe and we would love to get to know you!
Prices are per person per night.
