I don't understand how this hotel price is so low. It's wonderful for backpackers, young adults, and those looking to explore Merida. Located nearby the Centro Historico, Nomadas really offers a convenient walking location to key sites, buses, banks, and delicious restaurants. They offer cooking, dancing, and yoga classes for free. There is a pool, hammock area, fully stocked kitchen,... More

Nomadas is huge. It offers salsa, yoga, cooking classes...all of this is great, though I do think it prevents travelers from having these experiences in the city and with locals. Nomadas tends to be a world unto itself, with people sometimes staying there at the pool all day. Still, the facilities were nice and the staff was very flexible and... More

This place has decent rooms and a great pool, but you are not allowed to make a single noise past 10:55 pm. There is no common area that is available. If they don't want noise they should remove the s from hostel

It's an okay stay, would want to give it 3.5 star, but I can't. Price-quality is okay, you can't expect much for that price. But I've seen better hostels. But they usually didn't have breakfast. Breakfast is basic, but you get fresh fruit, next to toast and cereals. Rooms are very basic and very hot (stayed in a private bedroom)!... More

I have stayed there several times and watched it grow over the years. First class, with pool, conveniently located. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Will organize excursions. only a couple of blocks from the main plaza. Good WiFi. Breakfast and a community Kitchen. Meet fellow travelers, team up and compare notes. Love this place.

Only a few blocks away from the center of Merida, Nomadas is a hidden oasis. The hostel complex is just the right size, the grounds are beautiful, the atmosphere is spectacular, the staff is very friendly! THE POOL is a lifesaver! Hammocks hover over the semi-Olympic sized swimming pool, a garden and neighboring courtyard wrap up the pool in one... More

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Obviously the pool is absolutely amazing to have in the heat of the city - I went for a swim even before having breakfast:) Staff was really friendly and helpful with organising tours / explaining how to do it on your own. Lots of free activities on offer too. The dorm... More

The only suggestion I have for this hostel is to upgrade the kitchen. It needs more than 2 knives and 2 small, stained cutting boards. The pots and pans are past due for a replacement as well. There needs to be more than one drainer for drying the dishes and/or a towel to dry the dishes as many are put... More

Love this place. Definitely the best hostel I've stayed in. Really friendly, helpful staff; incredible pool; good kitchen; good breakfast; hammocks all over the place; loads of free activities... it's got it all! Rooms, beds and bathrooms are all clean and well maintained, they don't do silly things like charge for towels, water or wifi, there are great communal areas... More
