It is quite expensive, especially since it's a hostel.


not the best at all

I booked a 6 bed dorm for me and 5 friends so that we could have privacy. We were given an 8 bed dorm. One night we had a very sandy stranger walk in and sleep on my friends bed as the other two guests had left the door unlocked while we were out, some minor items were stolen. Second night my friend was woken up by two gay men touching his leg. Air conditioning was gushing water during operating hours, so our first night we came back to very wet belongings. +No hot water, bad wifi, smelly room.

Kitchen was dirty and too small for hostel size. Rooms are very very hot at night. A fan is not enough. The bar didn't open til late, over new years which killed the atmosphere a bit.


Was nice, is just dirty. The location is nice and the staff too! They shouldn't advertise free breakfast that just gave us a piece of bread and coffee. Private rooms are a little bit expensive. We had a nice experience :)


My stay at Tequilita was easily the worst hostel experience I have ever had. Because of the loud rooftop bar and overpowering, offensive urine smell it is impossible to sleep at night, and because of the broken fans and non-existent ventilation it is impossible to sleep in the sweltering room during the day. Unless you only plan on using your bed during the relative quiet hours from 6 to 10 am to pass out drunk, go elsewhere. For the same price consider the vastly superior Hostel Excel Sense.


Stayed at a female 6pax dorm. The bathroom was a bit dirty, but that was all to complain about. Location was good, the staff was ok, and they served a lot of tequila. Would recommend it for party people!


just one thing made traveler feel so fear! most of guest is from argentina! and they don't seem to travel . i think they just visit mexico for a job. that's why i feel they are illegal alien... don't need say about facilities how it does. not so clean.
