    Amazing stay!! The atmosphere and staff is so welcoming. Everything is always clean, the showers are amazing if you have been travelling for a long time! Really hot and good pressure! The included breakfast is very generous as well. It is very easy to make friends and the activities they organize are cool too. Booked for a night ended up staying 5.

    Mapache was everything I needed. It was a home away from home. The staff was really friendly and they made me feel welcome right from the start. There's a beautiful garden with hammocks. It's four blocks away from the beach. The free breakfast was just a bonus. Definetely going back without a doubt.

    Great stay, I totally recommend. Since I arrived the staff was very helpful and gave me excellent tips about the island. I also felt at home from the first moment, very chill atmosphere. The included breakfast is delicious and satisfying: eggs, toast, cereal and coffee. The space is sparkling clean and the tents for camping are really nice, with fan and plug in included. Hot showers and enough bathrooms for everyone. They also have bikes for rent. Totally staying here the next time.

    I loved my stay at Mapache! Beautiful and chill family style hostel. Super clean, hot showers and jummy help yourself breakfast. It's literally 2 minutes from the ocean and the centre, unbeatable location! Lovely garden to lay in a hammock or do yoga. The staff is really friendly and they do nice events to bring people together like family dinners, beach days, walk-a-dog... would definitely recommend!

    Had an amazing stay at Mapache during my time in Holbox. The staff are incredibly friendly and willing to help out and chill out with you as well. Made some great friends during my stay and enjoyed the chill atmosphere. Far enough from the center to be chill and close enough to be near everything you need. Much love, Tyler from Canada

    Great and chill place. The wifi is sometimes working quite well and sometime not working. The 8 bed dorms are a bit crowded. So I would recommend to book the 6-bed-dorm. Overall an amazing place to stay.

    Cute and small family house style hostel with two form rooms and tents. Beds were comfortable and the dorm had air conditioning at night. The staff are very friendly as are the guests who stay there. Only downside is there isn't a lot of comfortable outdoor seating. Perhaps some lawn chairs or bean bags would be a good addition. Breakfast was good.

    This hostel seems like a private home turned into a hostel, which means that it is very crowded and there are not enough bathrooms and sinks. (Some bathrooms and sinks don’t work.) Wherever you go you have to cram yourself next to someone. Bedrooms are crammed, moist and overcrowded. In general, too many people for the space - even in Corona
