This is the best hostel between ensenada and the border. The place feels like home. It's a little outside of downtown...maybe a 20 minute walk but really not to bad. The staff is great and very welcoming.

Fantastic place, great facilities, and easily one of the best hostel managers I have ever encountered. Carlos will not only share a drink and give priceless information, but he will go out of his way to ensure your trip to Ensenada is a safe and enjoyable one. Having been sold a ticket to the wrong bus, with no Spanish, and no refund possible - Carlos accompanied my friend and I for three hours, and ensured we were given the correct ticket we were entitled to. I could not recommend it enough.
