I've stayed at El Pochon several times over the last two years. Here are my observations: Positive: 1. The staff are friendly and helpful. 2. Staff are honest. I had some laundry done by them and Dona Alo, who was washing the clothes, came up to me and handed me some money she had found in my shirt pocket that... More

I stayed 2 nights in hostal Pochon and I really enjoyed it. It's a nice cosy hostal. What was best, is that Erika really helped me out when I forgot my wallet in the hostal after the checkout. She send it to my next destination (Puerto escondico) without within 2 days and safed my trip. Thanks a lot! :)

We stayed here for 2 nights in a private room (370MXN/ night). The staff is really friendly and the room is clean, but it is not our top choice, for sure. First of all, the breakfast sucks. It's really small and not tasty at all. Everyone had his/her own breakfast next to the one you get from the hostel, a... More

I stayed at this hostel with my boyfriend just the other day for 2 nights. We had booked a private room with ensuite. The bed was very big (two singles pushed together) and the cupboard space was also good. The bathroom however was not up to standard with the tap merely having a drip of water so attempting to wash... More

3 nights spent here. Good location. Wi-fi works well throughout. Shared bathrooms were a bit run down, but hot water so not all bad. We paid for the more expensive private room. It had a small balcony. It also had a metal door. From what i understand, the cheaper doubles have glass doors so could feel like less privacy. There... More

We stayed for 4 nights and we were very happy with the service. :) It was low season and they had a promotion: if you stayed 2 nights you get the 3rd for free. The cheapest option they offered was a bed in a 8 bed dorm for only 125pesos the night with typical Mexican breakfast included, wifi and hot... More

I am very happy with my stay at Hostal Pochon. The staff is very friendly and constantly cleaning. I stayed in two different rooms on two different stays and both were quiet and clean. It's a smaller hostel and the staff always greets you and is very nice and sincere. The breakfast and coffee in the morning were definitely a... More

My boyfriend and I stayed 4 nights in the private room with private bathroom. We really enjoyed our stay and loved the city! The room was very large with a private terrace in the back. The bed was a king size made out of two twin beds and wasn't the most comfortable, but not too bad. Clean rooms and towels.... More
