    Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 10 days and moved around to lots of different rooms. The double rooms were exceptional. The staff were helpful and friendly, beautiful garden, good kitchen, lovely dogs and cats!

    The breakfast wasn't very generous. We got 2 slices of bad quality bimbo bread and usually very bruised bananas. The crockery in the kitchen was all plastic which made things taste a bit like plastic. Please buy some more cutlery and sharpen the knives! We stayed in the family room for a few nights and it was a bit cold and noisy and the bathroom wasn't as good as the double rooms. We also stayed in the double room with shared bathroom which was a bit odd as it was in the loft with wooden beams running through the room - hard for a tall couple!

    The beds were a good size and incredibly warm and comfortable. The tours booked through the hostel were wonderful and great value. We loved our time at this Hostel.

    SanChris is worth visiting – a lovely town! At Rossco's we had a private room with baño. Everything was clean and quiet. The dorms are very spacious and clean too. The stuff was very helpful and friendly.

    We visited Roosco in winter, so it was very cold without sunlight. We missed a heated or a least closed community room where you can relax, read, chat or do whatever instead of lying under the blanked to keep warm. The breakfast was basic and not filling for a whole morning (coffee/tea, toast, butter, jam and a fruit). We’ve been to other Hostels where the stuff cooked basic but yummie hot mexican breakfast which was filling – not a big change for the Rossco but for it’s guests.

    Beautiful space outside, lovely cats & dogs. Great beds with big compfy blankets and really nice staff.

    It's very cold at night and there's no common room where you can chill and warm up, everything is open. Breakfast is very very basic.

    The hostel has a large, beautiful outdoor space with a garden, pool table and enough places to sit and chill. The kitchen was big and has many facilities so it’s easy to cook your own meal. I slept in a 6 bed dorm room and the beds were very comfortable! There were lockers, a big table and mirror and a space with curtain to change your clothes. I enjoyed a hot shower and the bathrooms were clean. Best of all were the 3 dogs and 2 cats
