There was construction going on next to the pool all week and beyond. Half the staff is friendly and helpful while the other seemed bothered and rude when questioned. Otherwise, they really provide a lot of useful information for exploring Merida and also have lots of activities that bring travellers together, such as morning yoga, and evening cooking and salsa lessons. A solid hostel that I would have to recommend.
Great place. The pool is awesome and there's tons of hammocks for relaxing and chatting with other guests. Super chill vibe and the staff helps you out with how to see all the sites outside of the city.
This seems to be the only real choice in Merida, the selling points over the few alternatives appear to be the pool (which is indeed awesome), and the free yoga, dancing and cooking lessons (all professionally run). Staff are friendly and knowledgable. Very spacious and generally clean, good ventilation in the sleeping areas including those powerful Mexican portable fans (some rooms have aircon but these fans are enough). Breakfast is disappointing, bit of a hike to the bus stations.
Great hostal. The owner really loves his hostel so you can see it in each corner of his property :)
Very cool place to say nice pool. We stayed in a privet room with 2 fans but no AC got a bit hot at night. The activity offered are great as well as lots of breakfast. Would definitely recommend
Great place, the swimming pool is the best ever seen in an hostel, good vibe and party but still possisble to rest at night!
Loved the hostel. The staff were extremely helpful and the location was great. We had a fantastic time doing the free cooking and salsa classes. The security isn't great, the safe wasnt a safe at all. But overall I would recommend it.
This was a great hostel. They had cooking, dancing, and yoga lessons everyday. Breakfast has toast with butter or jam, fruit or cereal. There was a kitchen area you could use with a fridge, cooker, plates etc. The dorms were big and there was a fan by each bunk bed, ceiling fans, and one air con. I stayed in the girls dorm which had 2 showers and 2 toilets in it. There was also toilets just outside the dorm. They also had hammocks and a nice swimming pool too.

The hostel basically functions as a flop house for europeans and north americans, the breakfast is bare bones at best, the same items every day. There is a sign limiting the number of fruits for each guest, kinda makes you feel you are in high school or something. The hostel is fairly large, so cleanliness does become an issue, but the staff tries their best. The men's shower/bathroom for some reason does not have a door.
The location is close enough to everything. Staff are great, lovely and helpful. Atmosphere is good, really easy to meet others. Pool and kitchen are great. Its clean. The only thing is that I stayed in the girls dorm, all the beds are the same price, yet some are double beds (bottom bunks), some have only fan, and some have AC. The room is very large so theres lots of beds in there. It doesnt feel squashed or cramped as its spread out in different sections.
It os a good cost. and benefits, the room, mixed even with Ari conditional is warn at 1 am it was around 28C and the humity, around 80%, of you would stau for one or two nights I recomend!
Awesome pool area to relax in after walking around in the heat all day. Can't bring alcohol other than beer or wine. Stayed in mixed dorm - no ladders on the bunks to get to the top which was very difficult! Had to use a chair and the locker to climb up. Breakfast was average. Easy walk around town.
Really nice pool and garden to relax in but having to wear a wrist band to identify you as a nomadas person is a bit weird. Breakfast very stingy compared with most places offering free breakfast - just a couple if bits if fruit and toast. The booking system is pretty annoying (online only) as not kept fully updated so what is online is different from asking at front desk? Staff confused our booking so we moved to another place when there was room to stay?
The facilities are the best thing about this hostel! Gorgeous pool and free salsa and cooking classes. It was a little far from the bus stations for our liking and the bathroom could have been cleaner, but the relaxed atmosphere, helpful staff and wealth of entertainment options in Merida more than made up for the negatives.
Fantastic swimming pool, cooking, yoga and salsa classes all for free! Make up for some dorms being very noisy near reception. Would definitely recommend.
Perfect in every way! one of the best and cheapest hostels I have stayed!

It is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed, has great activities from regional mexican cooking class to yoga or salsa lessons. Plus it is very nice to arrive after some touring and being able to chill out in the amazin pool
The atmosphere could be better if there was a bar in the hostel.
Location is perfect right around the corner from the main square. The reception staff are really friendly and helped booked our buses and day trips. The only thing I would say is the atmosphere is a bit off.
