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!

It was fine to stay one night and it was also cheap. You can hear everything that is happening outside because of the thatched roof. Besides that it looked really cute and was very clean.


The main draw back for the place is really that it is effectively located opposite a night club/wine bar that doesn't turn off its very loud music until 2am most nights. Other than that it is a nice place and located very close to the center of the town.
