Hostel was clean, both room and bathroom. Staff(Argentinan) were very helpfull, good location. Good connection with company that took me swimming with Whale Sharks.


Cute little place. Great location although could hear some music from a local bar. Clean room and bathroom. Great to have a mosquito net in the room although they weren't many bugs in the room. Helpful staff.


Great hostel in great location right in the centre just steps from the beach . No option of aircon however so room was very hot to sleep in. Good spot all the same


This was one of the first hostels we stayed in on our trip down Central America and wedding realise how lucky we were! The owner, Eric, is anamazingly generous guy who helps in any way he can. Great value for money, cheaper than other hostels on the island. Lovely rooms with an unbelievable size fan. Would recommend to anyone going to Holbox!
