When I checked in, the man at the front desk tried to confiscate my passport and said I'd get it back at check out. As a solo female traveler, I wasn't comfortable with this (why not just make a copy?) and said so politely. The receptionist immediately started screaming insults at me, including some very racist ones: "We aren't Muslims here; we don't have beards. You don't have to be afraid of us!" I found this extremely shocking/unprofessional. There are better hostels to visit

This place was super well located, and the facilities were great for the money--I paid around $25 and had a private bedroom with mini fridge and ac. Definitely a great place to meet other travelers.

I thought this hostel was great--the guys working there were friendly and did a good job of making sure the facility was clean and secure. The breakfast was pretty nice as hostel breakfasts go. Most importantly, the hostel is really well located--just a 5min walk from the epicenter of the tourist zone and an easy walk to the falls. My impression is that other hostels are closer to the bus station--a much less charming area that is also far away, i.e. a 30-40 min walk in the opposite direction.

Not a social hostel, but the facilities were clean and well located. They could definitely do more to create a sense of community, but if what you want is a convenient, inexpensive place to stay, then this is as good a place as any.

I was here for New Years and had an amazing time. Perfect location if you want to party. I'll definitely stay here again if I find my way back to Rio someday soon...

This is an excellent place to stay if you're looking for a quiet, laid back, and friendly environment. In other words, if you're planning on being loud and getting wasted every night, you should probably look for a different hostel. The place is wonderfully decorated, and Edwin goes out of his way to make sure you make the most of your stay in Mérida. You can tell he really cares about you and doesn't think of you as a number, so to speak. The one thing I will say is that the friend I was traveli
