    Chetumal is definitely not a place to be on Mexico, but the hostel is great. Large and clean rooms with air con, and a great terrace to hang out and meet other people. Frank was a great and well connected host.

    Really cool hostel in Chetumal. There were a couple of negative reviews that we saw before coming but we were delighted when we arrived. The location is great, the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Frank is very kind, knowledgeable, and lots of fun to chat with. He has lots of tips for traveling around Mexico or into Belize. WiFi is good, showers are hot, kitchen has good facilities. There are big lockers for backpacks too. Great spot in Chetumal.

    This hostel was a fantastic first stop in Mexico. Super close to everything you would need in town and also a short bus ride from the beautiful towns of Bacalar and Calderitas. The beds are new and very comfy. Frank and his colleagues were the most gracious hosts. Excellent breakfast was also included!

    Staff was amazing very social and easy to make friends here. Was like a family the whole stay. Rooms were good and clean beds were comfortable. Common areas good. During chill nights we watched movies and had munchies. Was just a great overall experience I did not want to leave. Breakfast was amazing

    This is the third time I stay here, my first in a private room due to the virus measures and the remodel looks real nice. Daniel is a great and very friendy host. Loved how the kitchen was expanded threefold by the remodel. I would definitely stay here again!

    We were there for only one night on our way to Guatemala. FYI Frank can help you book your bus into Belize or straight into Guatemala in Flores if required so just speak to him. Not something mentioned on their description but I think is something it should be mentioned

    I did not have a good experience with Frank who runs the hostel. When I checked in he told me he could be contacted 24/7. I had an emergency at 5:00 am so I called him but no answer. I tried for 3 hours. He came out of his room. I told him I was trying to reach him and he became rude. Then, he said I better not write him a bad review because other people have on booking.com did. Also, a lady in another hostel told me Frank told her I caused trouble. He is unprofessional!

    I didn’t like staying here and was glad it was only for the night. The water pressure was poor or there was no water at all. Don’t recommend this place at all unless there is nothing else available
