    Best wifi in Mexico so far. This is a great hostel. The room was giant so the other person in the women's room was physically far away from me. Comfortable mattress. The bathrooms were cleaned constantly. There is someone at the front all day so great security. The people who run it were very nice and helpful. It's in the center of town, but on a quiet street so easy to sleep in. And they have a swimming pool!

    We had to book as it was the only option available but we were pleasantly surprised and realized the really bad ratings on here are almost a year old and need updating. The hostel is very spacious and easy to work in a choice of the communal rooms/ garden. There’s AC all day in the bedrooms with comfy beds and a pool that isn’t in the photos. The staff are also super friendly! Only downside is repairs that need doing and it could be cleaner in places.

    My stay at Xiinbal was incredible. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and all spoke really great English. The location for me was perfect. It was 3 blocks (5 minutes) walk from the ADO bus station, and 3 blocks from a Supermarket. The Grand Plaza and Cathedral is a 10 minute walk away. There are a few great bars very close by, a 5 minute walk (Cardenal, La Paquerida, Malavida). The beds were super comfortable and rooms were very spacious. Highly recommend.

    Not a bad hostel if you’re any to explore the surrounding area. Stay are really nice and breakfast is ok. Stayed in the 10 bed dorm and didn’t have a plug socket which is worth knowing. Pool wasn’t usable either but it’s a nice stay to travel the area.
