It was a good idea to stay outside in a smaller hostel. Short walk in the City, super helpful and funny stuff and a nice ambiente.


Great cheap hostel!!! Highly reccomend staying there.


This hostel has great potential due to the excellent location. However, the shower was mouldy and did not drain properly so the bathroom floor was constantly wet. The drainage problem was fixed on request, but the mouldy shower base was never cleaned. The room was uncomfortably cold from late afternoon during all of our stay (late October/ early November). No lockers were provided in the rooms for secure storage of valuables. Could not recommend this hostel.


Not really like I love it but it doesn't miss character !! Nice decoration, small but it gives charm. Beautiful view and the personnel is really nice except the fact our reservation done the previous day didn't work. No hidden fees either :) internet works great, and it is a street parking.


The hostel owners and staff were very nice. They cleaned the hostel a lot, but the hostel is needing a makeover bad. The terrace needs to have some umbrellas, so you can sit without it being unbearable.


Almost everything was perfect, we don't like the staff, they were kind of grumpy all the time and they don't accept credit card, the machine was broken all the time!! But the view from the roof terrace was espectacular!!! Definitely I will come back!

Excellent location, directly in the centre of town, just few steps from Cathedral and museums. Lovely view on town. Very close to bars and restaurants. Very good point to start every trip in Zacatecas.

Very nice Hostal, close to the center, with nice terrace just behind the Cathedra. The number of bathrooms could be more (only one for the floor with many rooms), but hot water whole day. Staff very nice and helpfull, it is possible to store the back. Little problems with wifi in the rooms on 3rd floor, but there are computers in common room.


Great location, beautiful building and terrace. Highly recommended!


The location is excellent, just behind the cathedral and close to everything. The terrace is lovely but the rooms need some attention, they{re a bit run down and the lockers are mostly broken. Enough bathooms but need cleaning more often. Not tea/coffee available or computers to use.
