very nice place to relax with a wonderful view from the front rooms and the roof I recommend warmly this hostel


As there isn't much choice in Zacatecas when it comes to hostels, the price for a room at Villa Colonial is very good. The location is perfect, just behind the cathedral, and zacatecas itself was a great city to visit. On the downside, we felt we were irritating the staff when we asked for maps / advice / directions and we weren't made to feel especially welcome. There wasn't much to do in the hostel and not much of an atmosphere, though the views from the roof terrace are really cool.

Unhelpful, sometimes surly staff. No lock on room door, no towels, no toilet paper in one of two shared bathrooms. We escaped after one sleepless night.

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.
