Just what we need to do a relax style of travel, music, play your instruments, do your art, they even let you sale your merch. Clean kitchen, of course if we leave it better than we found it. Free lockers. Fiber optic wifi & access 24hrs w/key. Roof view. Everyone is safe, friendly, welcome & respected. Vibe

    I think the reviews on here are a bit harsh. I found the stay to be really nice it’s just hacienda style so noise carry’s. Like any hostel, people drink and stay up late. The noise travels a bit more here. Bring earplugs and you’ll be fine.

    Basic hostel, great location. Payment by cash only. The private room w/ bath was spacious and clean. No AC, but the fan + open windows was effective in April. No towels provided. Had a kitchen downstairs which was pretty nice. Lots of common areas but pretty dominated by slight stoner vibes which was not really our thing. Played music at night but not unreasonably late (maybe 11pm?). Water refill in common area with donation requested. Staff absent at 8am so we left keys on desk to check out.

    Breakfast is a bit weird, a girl makes something whenever she wants, it wasn't bad but I wouldn't recommend it. A lot of hippies there, which is not necessarily bad, but you should take into account.

    Very Good

    This place was better than the reviews I read. I met cool people here and had a good time. The beds in the dorms shake a lot so I'd wake up sometimes when the person above moved. Also, the staff is a bit unfriendly at first but as I get to know better, they were chill. Breakfast was good. Not a party hostel, however the staff would be in the hostel common are in the evenings playing weird music and dancing. This hostel is okay, but I'd stay somewhere else if I ever came back.

    A fine hostel for the cost. Simple facilities that covered basic needs. Good location. Our roommates (male and not in my group) didn't care about keeping the door locked when we were all out of the room, which made me uncomfortable security-wise, but at least there were lockers to use. The bunk bed frames were very shaky and the mattresses sagged. One bathroom for a lot of people sometimes meant a long wait. Staff were amiable and my friend had a great time hanging out with them.

    WORST HOSTEL I stayed in Mexico. The amenities listed are inaccurate. Reception is not 24 hours; they stop answering the door after 11:00 pm, water is "by donation", laundry is not offered for personal use, the pool table "broke" a long time ago. A guest's shirt went missing; the hostel manager (gold shoes) responded "everything here belongs to everyone". There is a note in the kitchen stating "Slaves, Please see me. I may give you a free class of how to clean after your masters."

    Cons 1. We were told there weren’t enough lockers to put our bags. No lock on bedroom door. 2. Beds were super creaky and rickety. 3. The light in our room came on at 6am and couldn’t turn it off but wouldn’t turn on at night 4. Staff seemed quite disinterested in helping the guests. They also played really loud music until 2am and started again at 8am. Pros 1. Situated in a good area, 5 minutes from the central plaza. 2. Cheap. I wouldn’t stay here again!
