I stayed in luna nueva 3 nights, hostel is well located and recently renovated but I would never recommend it to anyone! Why? The staff is horrilble. Extremely rude people, at least two guys. When at the breakfest I asked for water for tea they said that's it's finished (I just came), then when I started arguing they finally gave... More

I was very surprised what kind of hostel could Merida hide :-) Centrally located, close to both sides of Merida (cathedral and promenade), helpful staff and very friendly. Well, you have to speak spanish because knowledge of english is limited.... Extremely hot in the dorm. I was dying but they supplied with 2 more fens after all. The place is... More

We spent four nights at the Luna Neuva. It was a bit of a walk from two of Merida's three bus stations (15 to 20 city blocks). The staff was friendly, but only one of them really seemed to speak or understand English. We managed, but just a heads-up if you have zero Spanish. It's an easy walk to the... More

Actually we were booking a room over booking.com. All different roomtypes were listed there and we chose a twinroom with seating area, windows to the outside, fan and AC for 800 pesos. When we arrived in the morning we were given a smelly little room with no window, AC and no seating area for the same price!. Unfortunately my spanish... More

Luna nueva appears to be trying to offer hostel facilities with a touch of hotel luxury but kinda ends up doing neither. It's in a good location, it's clean and there's not much wrong with it. But there's also not much right with it either as if it's personality or ambiance has been whitewashed out of it. To be fair,... More

This place feels like a bit of a trick, like they'll be some hidden fees, but there aren't. It's 400 pesos for a clean, hotel standard, double room with satellite tv, aircon and the nicest shower I have had in over three months of Central American hostels. It's not really a hostel it's a hotel that had a massive space... More

Upon arrival to Luna Nueva you're initial impression would be that you'd arrived at a hotel and very nice one too. This is then the recurring theme as I entered my room. I had a private room which has private bathroom. We opted for one of the smaller rooms upstairs because they were slightly cheaper than the extravagant four poster... More

This little hotel run by two brothers Jose and Victor was a delightful surprise. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the bathroom and towels fragrant smelling. This is location, location, right on Paseo de Montejo (Champs-Élysées) of Merida. The free concerts on Friday and Saturday nights are right ay your doorstep. Walking distance to the grand plaza, and Starbucks for... More

Hostel Luna Nueva is brand new: still in the colonial district but entirely renovated inside, more stylish than most B&Bs or hostels. They do have a dorm but it was hardly occupied during my stay and I didn't feel a bakpackers atmosphere--on the contrary, in the private room and with the 24-hour reception service, I felt that I was in...
