    Truly one of the nicest hostels I've stayed at, ended up extending my stay a couple of times of course! Amazing staff, chilled but really social and just great vibes all round. The communal areas are lovely with a very well stocked kitchen. The dorm beds are super comfy with AC, lights, sockets, curtains etc. Thanks for a great stay 🤙x

    This hostel was AMAZING. The ambiance was so lovely, always musicians playing peaceful music in the Cafe area, but still quiet enough that you can enjoy conversations with people you meet. Great free breakfast, incredibly clean rooms, perfect AC, wonderful staff. I will recommend this hostel to everyone coming to Merida. I truly loved it and will be back!

    I had such an amazing time in Barrio! By far, Barrio Vivo was my fav hostel in Mexico and I could literally live there. I met so many beautiful folks in Barrio that we wandered around together! I initially booked for 2 nights and I kept extending and ended up staying for 8 days jajaja Alas Barrio is very popular and gets quickly booked out even hammocks otherwise I wanted to stay longer! First and most, staff are all incredible and so friendly and helpful, they do whateve they can to make you feel home! It’

    The hostel is very well equipped and the vibe is great. Staff/volunteers are a credit to the hostel and were always helpful. Comfortable bed and good showers. 10-15 min walk to the centre but area is nice. Would recommend.

    Amazing hostel. Great atmosphere, feels like being part of a family, and the staff is so friendly, fun and helpful. Nice activities as well (loved pizza night!!) Also super comfortable rooms. By far the best shower I've had in Mexico. I definitely recommend this place!!! Only a bit of a walk to town, and they should also put curtains at the end of the beds (not just the side) but other than that it's absolutely perfect!!
