A really cool hostel that's very social, with plenty of activities... and a social staff, that hangs out with the guests and partakes (the exception being a few cliquish long-termers that live at the hostel, who keep their distance - but most of the staff were very fun and cool). Music playing (even in the bathrooms, which is awesome) and a solid pancake breakfast. Excellent location in central San Diego, access to all parts of the city. Comfortable beds and large lockers also. Recommended!

A super cozy hostel, with helpful and welcoming staff... and nice common areas downstairs (and upstairs on the terrace also - however, the other upstairs sections are currently being renovated). The location is excellent - close enough to the main bar / restaurant / plaza areas... but not sooooooo close to where it becomes a burden (i.e. it's an easy walk of a five minutes or so). The vibe of the hostel definitely felt very homelike and warm.

Very well-equipped and clean hostel, with excellent facilities and awesome breakfast. It's a historical building, with lots of 'Mexican' ornate details (such as tiles, etc). The staff are attentive and helpful, but don't really interact or socialize with the guests. But then, due to being a large hostel... this could be kind of difficult. The location is great in the Centro and close to various transport options (metro and airport bus). Safe and secure. Could do with some background mu

Beautiful new hostel, with awesomely designed interior and common spaces... funky and artistic. The atmosphere was extremely social, with a nice long common table and outdoor patio - great for meeting other guests. The dorm room was comfortable and well equipped, with little details such as curtains for the beds. And attentive staff, who helped me through a debit card crisis that i was having. Location is a good, in a residential neighborhood, but walking distance from bars and restaurants.

A cozy and homely hostel, with comfortable common areas - both outdoors... and a nicely designed lounge area, with an open-window looking out to the street. Great for chilling out after a day under the hot Cartagena sun. Excellent location, steps away from a main plaza full of life and activity in the evenings... and plenty of bars and restaurants in the vicinity. The staff although polite and professional, don't really hang out with the guests... which is why the only low score was for this.

A really comfortable and spacious hostel with large, open common areas and hallways - in a beautifully restored historic building in the city center, close to everything (including metro stations). Balconies look down to the street below, which is lively during the day and quiet at night. There isn't much of a party vibe, but for me on this trip that suited me fine as i was looking to chill out and rest. The only real issue is that some of the rooms get noise from the hallways, but that's it.

A friendly hostel with a nice vibe, in a beautiful historic building right in the heart of downtown San Diego - beside all kinds of bars and restaurants. The breakfast (make your own pancakes) was great... and the staff (especially the two German guys) all did a good job of interacting with the guests. Nice common areas, especially the lounge... but my room (four-bed dorm) was kind of small. Can get kind of rowdy, which is good or bad, depending on what you are looking for.

Spacious converted loft conveniently located near a couple of subway stations... and just minutes to central Manhattan. Although not for everyone i like this location, in a developing part of Queens and i love the noise of the elevated subway rattling above - very NYC. The hostel has excellent facilities although it kind of lacks a certain vibe - maybe it needs speakers playing music in the common areas..? Or maybe the staff need to interact more with the guests..? Jason was great though.

An excellent hostel - very trendy and stylish, with funky furniture and lighting and music in the lounge / lobby area. And a beautiful outdoor garden / bar area by the swimming pool. The rooms were clean and with great attention to detail - even a couch and coffee table. And the staff were very attentive and helpful. The only real issue is that the bar is open to the public - and the public that frequents aren't really so social, in that they stay within their own little 'VIP' circle.

The dorm rooms are great with privacy thanks to 'enclosed' areas around the head of the bed. Nice large lockers also. The hostel is in a beautiful old historical building in the revitalized downtown area of San Diego. There is a comfy lounge area and other good common areas... and constant music playing over the speakers (even in the bathrooms) is a nice touch (although it shuts off at 11pm or thereabouts). The reception staff are super friendly and attentive and have strong local knowledge.

In a beautiful historic building, spacious and with comfortable common areas - in a perfectly central location. The breakfast is also very good. I guess the only thing lacking is that despite there being a nice lounge area with beanbags, there is a lack of a social atmosphere - maybe there should be music or a bar or something..? It could still close at midnight in line with the current 'quiet time' rules (which are reasonable).

Mezcal Hostel, Cancun, Mexico

Security gets average reviews because nobody asked for passport / ID when i checked in. No locks on dorm room doors. And front door to hostel was constantly left open. It is Mexico after all! The breakfast was terrible too. Criticisms out the way, everything else about this hostel was awesome! Beautiful restored mansion with pool and communal outdoor patio area with nice atmosphere. The staff were very helpful and social. And for me, the location AWAY from main tourist strip was cool.

Hello Guest, Thank you for the comments. We have just recently installed security cameras in the entire area of the property to increase security for our guests. Also we have large metal lockers in the dormitories for guests to store their valuable items. The pool is a great social area to hang out. There is nothing better then taking a swim in our pool and meeting people from all around the world. Thank you, Hostel Mezcal

A cozy hostel with a nice outdoor courtyard, as well as a funky lounge area. Relatively small - and so it feels like home after just a few days. The location is excellent, in a lively neighborhood that is a good mix of tourists and locals. And plenty of good nightlife and restaurants in the vicinity. The only suggestion i'd offer this hostel, would be to change the ugly white lights for something more atmospheric - install some softer yellow or orange lighting or something...

Excellent hostel with a great aesthetic and social vibe, but also with reasonable limits (bar and music shut down at midnight). The location also very good in Medellin's best neighborhood. No major complaints really, although perhaps some of the dorm rooms are a little close to the communal kitchen which can be disruptive when trying to sleep. Maybe this kitchen should just be closed down since there is already a second kitchen closer to the reception area..? In any case, just a minor thing!

Overall, a nice place with a friendly atmosphere and very attentive and helpful staff. Just needs a few infrastructural tweaks, but this is already in progress and so pretty soon it should be up to a high standard. Excellent location in an interesting part of the city.
