    There's not enough good words I can say to describe my experience at Downtown Vallarta hostel! The moment we arrived the vibe of the place was amazing! Amazing energy! Carlos the owner is a great guy, it's because of Carlos and his staff that makes everybody feel welcomed! I bonded with the most amazing people I met at this place, it honestly was the most happening spot around! You could go out or you could just hang out with the best people on the rooftop terrace! Breakfast was amazing! A++++++

    ¡Tuvimos una experiencia muy positiva en este albergue! Solo había otra persona allí y luego 4 en nuestro grupo. Dennis fue increíble! Ella fue muy amable y servicial. Ella definitivamente nos mostró un buen momento. Pagamos por dos noches, pero en el último minuto decidimos escapar de la lluvia y dirigirnos a Sayulita. Recomiendo

    Hi..Mystay at the hostel Vallarta was quite ok until my last day 😒The hostel is a nice hostel and few of the volunteer workers ( like miss Anastasia and a real nice Mexican guy ) was helpful & respectfully lovely But!!! the little Mexican mama who runs the place was to much to take.On my last day to my horror I find she clear my bed at 11am and forced me to leave my room( check out was 12) and if that's not enough she cut my locker exposing my bag with my pass money etc etc. That's Sirius crime

    Very Good

    When I arrived, it took me a while to get inside as nobody was responding to the locked front entrance. Staff were nice once I got in, maybe 30 min later. I booked a private room which was perfect for me and reasonably priced. There was barely anyone staying here on Friday and Sat night. But I did get a wristband to their other hostel a few blocks away which was alot busier. Kitchen area and especially the communal showers were pretty dirty. Great location and nice private room.

    The staff could spend more time cleaning the rooms & dwelling, than painting walls &socializing. I found the place very dirty. Suggestion. Provide plastic containers for each person to put their food in & labels for their name. The fridge was a mess & unorganized. Also food went missing.

    Pros: Nice atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff, good location in the historical centre (although the location listed on the website is completely different to the actual location. Why?) Cons: 2 bathrooms/toilets and only one sink for like 20 people. Ridiculous. Also like a 50/50 chance of get hot water in the showers. The dorms and bathrooms are not kept clean. Someone spilled beer in my dorm room and the floor was left uncleaned & sticky for 3 days even after I told reception about it.
