Hard to find central hostels in merida that have double bed rooms. This one wasn't clean and the shower was only dropping. The other guest told us that her shower was fine, so that's not the case for all the bathrooms. Ours also had no light. Also be sure to bring mosquito repellant!


Tio Rafa made us feel as if we were doing a home stay while we were at his hostel. What a great host!


Hotel is quite far from the town center. Room are dirty, old and noisy - room entrance is in the kitchen/ Windows are is the corridor. I do not recommend this hotel.


The name says it all. Rafa is there all the time and treats you like a friend, providing a more familiar atmosphere than usual. I liked the location a few blocks from bus station and a short walk from the zocalo, heart of centro historico. Only downside was my dorm was towards the street which meant some disturbing traffic noise.
