Valladolid is a small and calm Mayan and colonial city of 70.000 inhabitants. It is located in the north centre of the Yucatan Peninsula, only 30 minutes away from the monumental Mayan ruins of Chichn Itz.. It is a good base to rest after visiting the Mayan zone and its authentic cultural expressions. Valladolid and the region around it have some of the deepest and most spectacular natural wells (cenotes) of the Yucatan Peninsula.

An old, large colonial house, is located in Parque La Candelaria, 3 blocks from the bus-station and 2.5 blocks from the Central Park.

In a safe and familiar atmosphere, it is the home that you need to enjoy your vacations calmly. The staff are the owners. The inner patio, with its natural garden and exotic trees, offers a great space for you to cook, eat and have a siesta in the hammocks, next to the birds song.

We provide dormitories and private rooms, a completely equipped kitchen, cable- television, board games, bicycles for rent, uo-to-date tourist information and of course the colonial Parque La Candelaria just in front of the hostel.

    Best breakfast ever! Much better than any cafe. The staff really made this place. They helped in detail with tour information and directions to cenotes etc. It is very clean, keep in mind it is an old building with old facilities. But that doesn’t deter from the great hostel and small practical things like the laundry area and hooks on the bathroom shower to hang your things.

    I absolutely loved it here! The garden is so beautiful and pristine, I just wanted to sit in the hammacas and read all day! I loved cooking/dining al fresco in the covered outside kitchen (and fully equipped!!), the showers with a cool morning breeze is so refreshing, beds are super comfortable, the staff are amazing, and omg the breakfast!!! Best in the Yucatan! The atmosphere is wonderful too, very easy to make friends with other travelers. Owners are doing a great job, muchas gracias!!

    This hostel is amazing! The garden is to die-for-beautiful and the staff are amazing. Every morning breakfast is different and freshly made when you sit down. The facilities are clean multiple times a day. The dorms with ac is nice and there are multiple fans if you want the room cooler. Location is right off a pedestrian square so it’s quiet at night but still close to everything. Only improvements needed are hooks in dorms and I wish they offered some activities like cooking class, yoga, etc.

    Fantastic place to stay. Gerardo and the rest of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The ambiance of the hostel is beautiful with all the trees and flowers it feels very peaceful and tropical. The location is fantastic, only two blocks from the ADO terminal and very close to Cenote Zaci. I highly recommend this hostel to anyone who stays at Valladolid.

    Great Hostel to stay at overall. Good to meet people and good location for the city. Only stayed one night but would definitely stay again. Staff was very helpful and I liked that they let me keep my things till 5pm on my check out day. I do wish they had AC but having individual big fans did help a lot with the heat.

    This hostel is located just few blocks away from Center park and also quite close to bus station. The staff is very friendly. Great place for backpackers. The hostel provides free breakfast; this is the best breakfast I have ever had in any hostel. There were ladies in the kitchen every morning who will provide fresh cut fruits and freshly made (eggs or sandwich, etc) food; this is in addition to cereals, coffee and juice.
