Property Description

We are a hostel, yes, but we are more than that. We are the neighborhood (barrio) of Santiago, we are in the oldest historical area in Mérida and we like taking care of it. We like stepping out for fresh air (“tomar el fresco”) and drinking good coffee, we are the Tuesdays of trova and Polito’s ice creams. We like shopping and dining in the market, we like the park and the “marquesitas”; it’s art galleries and concerts, we like walking and biking. We like barbecuing in the hostel’s roof, and the parties in our bar. We like jazz and meeting people from all over the world, we like waving to the neighbors and taking our nap (tomar la siesta); we are travelers, not tourists, we are inclusive and friends, we are free. We celebrate being able to enjoy every second, every note, every beer and every conversation.
Yes, this is a hostel, but it’s so much more. It’s an open space of friends, travelers, locals and foreigners.

We may be from anywhere around the world, but now we are from the Barrio of Santiago. View House Rules

    This is one of my favorite hostel!! It’s located in quiet neighborhood, about 10mins walk from city center and 15 mins walk from ADO station. They have good wifi, in-room bathroom and another building for toilets and shower so you can use them anytime!! It seems kitchen was well equipped and have nice patio to chill in the morning and evening.( no shade during day time) It’s always nice to have free coffee in the morning too!! Recommend!!

    I loved the hostel. It is about a 15 min walking distance from the center of the city but I didn’t mind the walk because I got to explore the city more. The hostel was quiet during my stay, which I enjoyed. The plants and physical space were nice, the rooms have AC and a fan. Beds were comfortable and the staff was friendly. Breakfast is not included and towels are $20 pesos. I recommend the Mercado Santiago for breakfast and lunch.

    The staff are very helpful and accommodating. The shower pressure in the mixed dorm was low, but the beds were comfortable, and the AC worked. Overall, great stay!

    Since it is COVID times I understand that the hostel will be lacking in atmosphere. I think for the first few days there, I was the only guest! The hostel isn't very central so it is at least a 15 minute walk to anything. There is UBER in town but I had trouble calling a taxi to the hostel. I stayed in a private room and while the room was simple and fine, it had easily the smallest shower I've ever seen in any hostel.
