It was absolutely perfect!! We had such a nice room, the garden is amazing (including a well, orchids, hummingbirds, hammocks and a lovely dog named Llena), the staff are wonderful (Nilly would help us with everything we needed and never lost her patience, even when we changed our reservation for the third time), there´s a library with a fireplace, breakfast...

This hostel was just beautiful- it was relaxing just to come back and swing in the hammocks with a beer after a day walking around town. I stayed in both mixed dorm and female dorm - both were great - female dorm has ensuite and only four beds. Highlights: Wood fire at night, helpful staff and eggs with delicious bread... More

I've been to over 30 countries and posada del abuelito is without a doubt the best hostel I've stayed in. It's so well organized, it doesn't even make sense! The family and the staff that run it are WONDERFUL, the breakfast is amazing. The fireplace at night, two blankets on the bed, warm showers, the vibe! The people that come... More

We stayed here for a week over Christmas and were extremely happy to find such a beautiful place for the money we paid. This place is absolutely GREAT value! We had a smallish private room but it was lovely and the shared bathrooms (which my girlfriend was a bit worried about) were fine. There is one individual bathroom between the... More

One of the best hostels I have visited. It has a full kitchen, with a beautiful stove/oven, a delicious breakfast, comfortable lounging areas, and beautiful landscaping. The internet is fast and the hostel is always clean. The showers are HOT! I would stay here again in a heartbeat. I love that it has been owned by the same Mexican family... More

I stayed for about a week in the mixed dormitory. I super recommend it. I loved everything about this posada: -The people who work here! Everyone is kind and welcoming. Probably the best part about this great place -The beds were extremely comfortable (yeah! in a dormitory style room!), with comfy blankets and fresh sheets put on every day. They... More

Best hostel I stayed in in Mexico. Breakfast was above average! Great coffee, delicious jam, and even eggs provided! Felt very home-y and staff very helpful. Marco offers a number of interestig activities / tours. I stayed in both a dorm room and a private room, both very comfortable and good value. Great location. Would highly recommend.

Staff do a good job, the he hostel is really... More

This hostel is well maintained, the kitchen is well stocked and the dorm rooms are spacious. Breakfast is very good as well. Location of the posada is spot on for site seeing in the city but quiet enough you will get very decent rest. The hostel provides a very handy fact sheet which shows they understand travellers. I highly recommend... More
