    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.

    The kitchen could be better equipped but I guess it’s a mater of time as it’s a new hostel. I loved the high ceilings. Room was massive, good locker. There were no many other ppl but I didn’t mind as I was doing a Spanish course in Calle 55 which is 3 mins away. And the main park is less than 10 away. Didn’t have an Internet in the room though. Ah on the bad note - mosquitos were absolutely killing me outside of the room or when the air con wasn’t on. Hot water in the showers.

    We were the only ones at this hostel when we were there for 2 nights so pretty low atmosphere. Place is nice and fresh though. The double room was huge, with an AC. breakfast was plentiful - they lay it out and you help yourself - fruit, toast, cereal, juice, tea/coffee. Not much ambience to hang out in communal areas, and also bit much furniture.. didn’t bother us too much as we had our own room.

    Zero atmosphere - it was virtually EMPTY. Showers and toilets are so awkwardly small and DIRTY. Staff don’t know what to recommend in the city or area.

    During my stay I was the only person in the dorm, which is why there was no atmosphere, which is not a big issue. The thing that bothered me was the absurd amount mosquitoes/similar within the property especially when it wasn´´´´´'t even the raining season yet. The staffs put on devices but it wasn't helping. Como yo era la única persona en la habitación, no había mucho ambiente. Lo que no podía aguantar fue la cantidad de mosquitoes en la habitación. Pusieron máquinita, pero no ayudó mucho.
