    Great hostel! The host (Emir) creates a welcoming atmosphere and makes this place feel like home from the very beginning. Clean facilities, nice common areas, and good breakfast. Definitely do the sunrise SUP tour on the lagoon, it was amazing. Free bikes is also a plus, and makes it easy to explore Bacalar. Stay here, you won't regret it.

    This was a find and a steal! The owner is the best hostel manager, cooked us dinner and invited us on his sunrise SUP tour on the lagoon which was incredible. The hostel has a really friendly vibe and because of its size you get to meet people. Clean rooms and a cute kitten that visits. Also one of the most affordable in Bacalar. Would recommend to anyone!!

    Emir, that was running the place, was such a nice guy, we would have spend more time with him. otherwise the hostel was beautiful, but a few things would be to get better but yeah I still recommend it. Anyway Emir is offering paddle board tour every morning on the lagune and you totally have to do it. One of those small hostel that i like ! thank you xxx

    Pros: Emir is a really friendly, helpful guy with a lot of energy. He welcomes everyone individually and gave tons of info Free bike use to get around town Private was a good size Cons: Room right next to the kitchen so was constantly woken up from 5am and didn't feel like I had much privacy No hot water (not sure if it's advertised) Emir is clearly overstretched, they need to hire more staff. WiFi is non-existent and he said he hasn't had time to fix it.

    Don't do it or Stay at your own risk. Dirty, showers hardly work, and host seems more into his social life instead of accommodating guests. Pay before or with cash. Dont use the pay pal service he may offer. Got double charged but was in such a hurry to get out of there, I cut my losses.
