We had a great time here! Friendly, helpful staff who will happily talk with you over some Chelitas! Big thanks to Gabby and the crew for looking after us, and Mike for the tequila tour (a must do, if you're willing to spend the money). We will definitely be back...

By far the best experience I've ever had at a hostel. The staff , Gaby-Hugo-Fernando-Juan Carlos, are absolutely amazing in every way. They truly care about the visitors experience and take pride in what they do. The hostel itself has everything one needs. It's conveniently located, great amenities, unbelievable staff, and a great place to meet the most beautiful people.... More

I arrived at 5am in the morning on the day I had booked to check in. The night watcher let me in, said "you must be tired" and showed me to a bed. The 7 bed dorm was very clean and spacious with lovely high ceilings. One of the bunks did have a plank of wood fall down in the... More

We stayed in the Hostel Tequila for four nights and had a very nice time! The staff - especially Gaby - were really helpful in every situation. For example: One night it was raining very heavily and no one wanted to go outside..so Gaby ordered food on the phone for everyone. So we didn't have to starve! We really recommend... More

great and really clean hostel, the staff working there are the most fun people and will do everything to make you feel at home. Just make sure you don't drink too much tequila. You will definitely overstay.

I have been traveling for more than half the year for the past 7 years mostly in Asia, and this is one of the worst places I have ever stayed (it rivals the worst in India!). My room with shared bath (supposed to be private ensuite) was bare bones. No fan, no lamp, a cable but no TV, a desk... More
