No one opened the door although we were there 3x that day, rang the bell and knocked on the door.


Elsie was a great hostess and gave us recommendations on where to eat and things to see. She did fail to mention the street faor and dining that are evdry thursday, friday and saturday so we ended up too late to eat there.


Great place just a few blocks from downtown. small but beautiful Jardin. The staff and owner very nice and ready to help. Super safe. Fully equiped kitchen. Great double bed private room with fan and AC. Five blocks from ADO station. Very quiet and that was great! Not to go party, but excellent to relax and walk around Merida. Gregorio


Nice and clean. Very warm staff. Fare price for place! Excellent location!

Hola, Thanks for your beautiful comment.


The manager was very flexible and responsive to our emails and needs. I made a mistake with booking, and without any hassle she adapted to this. Very helpful. The room is very nice and clean. Breakfast is perfect. This is one of the best hostels we stayed in so far, so very much recommended.

Don't judge a book by it's cover...once you stepped into this hostel it was so nicely done. Comfortable, clean, and safe. I was so surprised with everything! We will definitely be back. I would recommend this place to anyone.

The owner, Elsey, is fantastic and speaks English pretty well. She was helpful, nice, gave us tips on a few things. The hostel itself is a bit of a walk from downtown (maybe 10 minutes) so it's kinda on the fringe of action but the walk is worth it. The hostel has a beautiful garden to sit in and eat breakfast.


Great for couples!


El Jardin is a wonderful little hotel. Very clean, comfortable, accommodating. The staff made it a very pleasant stay. Breakfast was enjoyed in the sweet courtyard. I definitely recommend El Jardin.
