This place has the potential to be amazing but I didn't have the best experience here. It was FREEZING cold. The hostel isn't heated. The plus side was the unlimited hot water and AMAZING FOOD! It's more of a party hostel and if you're not part of the party it's hard to make friends. The dorm rooms are a little cramped but the beds are super comfortable. The staff was super helpful and knowledgeable!

This hostel has a great setup with a cool rustic look. Very comfortable beds with curtains and the free breakfast is amazing. You only pay if you want a second plate. Not all of the people who work here care about helping out the guests. Most just do the minimum and sometimes they can be unfriendly.

I was travelling alone and came to this hostel and it was absolutely wonderful. Such a great place to meet people and the staff put in a lot of effort to create a communal atmosphere. There are activities or cheap dinners nearly every night of the week and Nigel the cook especially goes a long way to chat to everyone and make them feel welcome ! Beds are SO comfortable.

The best hostel I have ever stayed in. Where to begin....beautiful building, tapas and cocktail night, a ridiculously good burger for 40 peso, steak night, yoga mornings, delicious and varying breakfasts, superb staff, campfire in the evening.... it goes on. Hot showers!!! You can book good and well priced tours/shuttles through them. Great location. By far the best thing is the amazing atmosphere - it is everything a hostel should be. Ask Flaco for a Mezcal Refresco, and enjoy.

The most comfortable bed I've had in Mexico. Big dorms but heaps of room, huge lockers and curtains around your bunk. Very friendly and helpful staff. A couple of blocks to the centre. Really good breakfast. Lovely garden out the back and most nights there is something social on. Very social, fun hostel!

Absolutely loved this hostel and ended up staying for two weeks. Friendly staff, clean and secure facilities, good location and a fantastic atmosphere where I met lots of incredible people. There are also lots of extras including food, free cocktails, parties in the bar which are all amazing. Would highly recommend!

I loved my stay here. Extremely friendly staff made all of us feel like family. Good location and comfortable beds. Plenty of activities to create a social feel to the hostel along with a great courtyard with hammocks and a firepit. Unbelievable value for this place. If I had one small piece of critism, it's a lack of good lighting inside the hostel. Highly recommended!
