This was one of our favorite hostels over the course of 2 months backpacking. The quiet and serene vibe of the place suited us perfectly as we really value a good night's sleep, and it made for a very welcome change from the party hostels, while still having a really nice social side based on great conversation with fellow travellers...

Beautiful hostel however signs and rules up everywhere which are kind of condescending- like the is not a party hostel- yeah we know, that's why we are here... That kind of pissed me off and wrecked the relaxed atmosphere they are trying to achieve...Also bit far to walk by yourself to the centre at night ( well I didn't feel... More

Thanks for your review. To address your complaint. The reason why we have signs indicating silence after 11pm is because we are a small hostel and the common areas are near the dorms and private rooms. So to provide the service of a hostel which also is sleeping, we set the rule for silence at this reasonable hour and try... More

Colorful patio and beautiful setting, BUT the overly strict rules and signs everywhere like 'if your guests stay after 9pm, you pay the night for them' and exaggerated checkout policy kind of spoiled it a little.

Hi Michael! Thanks for your review. To respond to your complaint. The rule we have set for visitors is a rule to protect our guests. Only until 10pm there is someone reponsible at the reception and we always tolorate visits until that hour. For this simple reason after 10pm there is no one responsable to check what the visitors are... More

It is like 10-15 minutes walking from downtown and service is very good! The place is very clean and the decoration is nice, you can borrow bicycles during the day and breakfast is included. I really recommend it.

We ended up staying here at the recommendation of another hostel in Mazunte. We were pleasantly surprised to see how nice and clean all the rooms and bathrooms were. The entire hostel is very colorful and beautifully decorated with a really nice courtyard and common kitchen area which definitely facilitated conversation between travelers. We stayed in one of the smaller... More

I stayed here for 4 nights (2 in dorm, 2 in private room). They have a lovely quiet courtyard, clean shared bathrooms/showers for the dorms, free wifi, simple continental breakfast included (toast,... More

Hi Thomas, Thanks for your review. We remember very well the situation we had with you. We could explain all the things you cite but it would be simply a waste of time. Our staff is probably the strongest point of our hostel and we never have had a complaint about it. Either way, they are people and like everybody... More
