Fantastic friendly staff who went out of their way to make our experience of Dia de los Muertos memorable. Great access to tours etc. Great location - easy walk to downtown but enough away to be quiet if needed. Definitely recommend!


We stayed in the 'basic double room' and it really was extremely basic. Just a room a little bit bigger than the double bed and a small set of shelves. Not much room. Ok if you don't plan on spending much time there. Breakfast was variable - omlette and quesadillas good, potato stew bad!


The staff was very helpful and available. The hostel itself is convenient, well located and quaint. The clientele is not one that socializes with other guests, so if you are looking for a party hotel, this is not that place. The breakfast varies, one morning we had eggs and bread and the next we had stewed potatoes and carrots with bread? The master suite is exceptional with ensuite bath, TV and sitting area with a private terrace. Furniture in the lobby smells, needs cleaning


The staff were incredibly nice and helpfull! A great atmosphier!

The staff is really great, and it really was a great atmosphere, with a lot of foreigners. the breakfast is nice. The bathrooms could be better, but not so bad.

Staff are great- they are willing to help with anything you need. It's not the cleanest hostel, but it's in a good location with good atmosphere. Bathroom isn't in each room, so it gets crowded sometime.
