Lush Hostel Sayulita, Sayulita, Mexico

4th Nov 2015

We checked into this property had a look at the room that was 'clean' and checked straight out. Our overhead fan was completely black with dust, there were stains all over our sheets and the room smelt damp. In addition to this, the bar was under construction and the hostel dog, which was constantly itching itself, jumped all over the communal couches. To say we were disappointed is an understatement.

Finding the place was a little tricky, but if you just call the guy, he'll meet you on the Main Street to show you where to go. Aircon or a fan would have been an added bonus as we were there in summer, however, not having it didn't affect our experience.

This hostel was amazing! It's a short walk to the old town and busses to the beach and the main shopping mall. Being a brand new hostel means that it's really clean and well looked after. The roof terrace was a really great place to chill out after our long journey to Montevideo. The staff we're really friendly and helpful and always made sure we we're looked after. I would have no hesitation recommending this place to friends

Although our room didn't lock due to a fault with the door, we felt very safe there and had the option of lockers if we needed them. There weren't a lot of people staying at the time so it was quiet, but the staff we're friendly

The down stairs common areas had a good social atmosphere and the bar staff whip up awesome cocktails, the location is great being in the heart of lively Lapa and provides plenty of night life options. The dorms have lockers however there are no locks on any of the rooms, the room I stayed in was extremely noisy as the fan sounded like it was about to fall off the ceiling it was also very dirty with a stale smell as were the bathrooms which also had no hot water. Definitely not a great stay.

Sorry for that, I'm sure we will work hard to fix it. The fan was fixed, it broked in carival and was hard to find someone to find. About locks, we do not like to lock door of the rooms. I will double check the cleaner to understand what is happening. Thanks for the review.

The staff we're extremely helpful and always made sure everyone was having a good time. Our rooms we're cleaned 3 times a day to make sure there wasn't sand everywhere. Great location just near the beach

It was in a nice location near the bars and restaurant in Condesa but the showers, rooms and kitchen could have been nicer.

It was a good location near the main train station however the staff were very unfriendly and seemed as though they had a bad attitude. The rooms were very clean and the bathrooms had hair dryers unfortunately showers weren't always hot and breakfast wasn't included.

The staff were very unfriendly and it felt like more of a hassle that we were staying there rather than making us feel welcome. We booked 2 twins and a double and didnt get the rooms we wanted. there is a 1am curfew which we didn't know until arrival. overall I wouldnt reccommend it

the hostel all in all was clean, and quiet, location was close enough to the city but still inconvenient due to it being on the opposite side of the city to everything else. probably better for long stay. our door didn't close or lock properly though and there was never any toilet paper in the bathrooms.

We keep reception and common areas closed until 8am. This way, we can have a quite ambiance for sleeping.
