    Ikali is located right in Barrio Antigua where there are many hip restaurants & bars. I highly recommend Trece Lunas (yummy vegan food & smoothies for breakfast & lunch), Me Muero de Hambre (delicious seafood & tacos) & Cafe Iguana for it’s atmosphere/vibe. I felt completely safe walking around at night by myself. Lucy is wonderful & always found a way to connect people together to visit cool places with more people (making it more fun & cheaper!). To note, towels & a lock aren’t included in $

    Great hostel in Monterrey (Barrio Antiguo). Staff was very friendly. My flight was delayed and I couldn't make it before 10pm to check-in but Yuri was kind enough to to wait for me.

    The hostel was in a GREAT location, right in the heart of Barrio Antiguo. The scene was extremely mellow when I went, with only one other guest staying in my six-person dorm. My only complaint was that there never seemed to be an actual staff member physically present on the property. All correspondence was done through Whatsapp, which got old very quickly, especially when the bathroom almost ran out of toilet paper, soap, and paper towels. Aside from that, I'd stay there again.

    Staff helpful but mainly speak Spanish. Wifi worked great and location was nice. Cleaning was done daily, although the communal bathrooms still got pretty dirty (and are very small). There isn’t really a common area except the kitchen, which is where people hangout. This is a problem if you have a private room because the private room is accessed through the kitchen and people hang out there until after midnight, keeping you up. Staff don’t work past 10, so quiet hours aren’t enforced.

    It's kind of complicated to arrive, but the place is quite ok, a bit loud for the surrounding bars along the street. The beds are super good, separated by courtains which helps with the light. Internet is good but badrooms are kind of small.

    I got bed bugs here and a lot of mosquito bites! There is no communal area other than the kitchen or an outside corridor. WiFi doesn’t work in the bedrooms. The rooms can get very hot if there is more than 3 people in. Great location though and Judy was lovely

    The hostel has excellent location and beds are nice. The staff is awful, however. They're almost never there so when anything is needed, you have to wait forever or give up. What is more, they play loud music even 11 pm to 12 pm or later for their own good when they're there, so made it impossible to sleep, even after I said it's a problem. Noone spoke any languages besides Spanish.

    Avoid this hostel! There were no staff to let me in. A guest luckily opened up the door for me. I had to find sheets and a towel for myself. The place was dirty. Avoid this place. Avoid this place. Avoid this place.
