It was a really nice place to stay, bedrooms or sharing rooms for a good price and breakfast included. We can say there were like a holiday family. The staff is one of the best I could meet on travel. Human and very kind, thanks for everything.

Nice and clean place, friendly People and good pricing. In comparision to other hostels in the city that we tried - this one was good.

Rooms vary in size, bed number and facilities meaning there is something for everyone - and at a reasonable price. Breakfast is free and normally consists of hot cakes, interior is nice, internet access is good and kitchen facilities are good. What really stands out though are the staff. Friendly, accommodating and pleased to help whenever they can - especially... More

We stayed at the hostel for two weeks while exploring the San Cristobal area and we really enjoyed ourselves. The hostel is not in the centre of town but its only 3 blocks from Real de Guadalupe where you will find bars, restaurants and other shops. Follow that street a further 3 blocks and you will come to the Zocalo.... More

The room where I slept was in the main hallway, close to the kitchen. This part of the hostel is often smelly and very loud because the only window in the room faces the hallway. The Wifi was pretty bad and the hostel is not exactly in the center (15 minutes walking distance). People were very nice though.

As a woman stated in her review, the staff who work at this place are touchy and feely with the women who stay at this place. They probably scout out young women they believe to be good looking at the bus station.The staff also behave as if they are guests in the hotel. There is a room very near to... More
