NEVER stay at this hostel!! From the cockroach that fell down in my hair, the completely moldy walls, the super loud music day and night, the awful awful owners and how they treat their staff (I could go on forever!) - this is a HORRIBLE hostel!!!!

Overbooking takes place here. We arrived and had no beds to stay, despite having the reservation confirmed. Staff did their best to get around the problem, they moved us to another hostel with a small discount on the due fee. We're thankfull to their effort but the new hostel was 8 blocks away, in a much worse location, making the whole experience bad due to their "mistake".

Absolutely not recommended. Dirty, noisy, smelly and bad atmosphere. We left the place one night before even if it was paid. Staff had a bad attitude since the beginning, rude and violent (they had a fight in front of the Hostal).

We stayed over the new year period and everything was booked out or very expensive. The main guy was friendly and offered his own made salsa. The room had holes in the wall where mice we're sighted running between. The room was also very hot as fan was not working to full speed. Location and kitchen were great. Bathrooms needed some work...


Weird smell in the room, we booked a 4 pers room but got a 6 pers the same price and no excuse from the staff.


Xaman Hostel is a cultivated taste ~ maybe not for everyone. It is simple, basic, with excellent people. I very much enjoyed it, and found it to be simple, comfortable, peaceful.
