    The owners are super friendly and helpful and always on site offering different activities every day - i particularly enjoyed taco Tuesday with nopal as veggie filling 😊 we stayed in the 4 bed private room with private bathroom and terrace. Amazing views, peace and tranquility. The place is beautifully designed with stunning architecture! The shower wouldn’t get hot enough for my european standard but was still warm. Perfect place to meet other travelers and unwind. Very quiet and nice hostel.

    Excellent hostel! I’d highly recommend staying here. It’s not a party hostel, it’s a nice chill, quiet hostel where you can do some socializing or get some rest. Great fully equipped kitchen, free toiletries and towels, for something like $100 pesos a night. Great location nearish to center but not too close. Stay here!
