Staff was very friendly. The room was confortable and clean. Have a full equipped kitchen that you can use and there's als free bottled water. The hotel is a 15 minute walk from the Main Street. You can park right in the entrance of the hotel.

We got there almost by accident and do not regret it. We asked for a private room and were lucky to get one. Staff is amazing, from the moment we called to ask for rates, Marisol -I think that was her name, if not, I apologize- was very friendly and didn't hesitate on answering our questions. Once we got there,... More

Been here for only two nights but can definitely recommend this hostel! Everything was clean and I was helped out by the staff with everything I needed! You can walk to the center with all the very touristic bars and restaurants in about 10 minutes...

The hostel is located a bit farther away from the center than other hostels (10 min walk to the Quinta Ave.). But that said everything else is good. All rooms and beds are clean. There are enough lockers. The kitchen has enough plates etc. and the pool is decent. The common-area is neat with hammocks, table and chairs. Wifi is... More

Really nice place with a relaxed vibe. there are plenty of hammocks and swings and a big kitchen although the stove wasn't working. The staff are always happy and friendly and Jose the owner is always joking around laughing and he will do whatever he can to make your stay more enjoyable. Only negative would be low pressure In the... More

Stayed for 3 nights in the upstairs double bedroom. Not bad but left with mixed feelings. Staff were friendly and helpful, great location, good kitchen facilities and awesome outdoor area with plenty of hammock and seating options. However, the good things were let down by poor maintenance and cleaning. Ceiling fan was very noisy and sounded like it would fall... More

About 15-20 mins walk from the beach, nice and quiet. Although it's not at the main avenue but still can find some restaurants around and the local supermarket just 7 mins away. Staffs are super friendly and treat you like family. Only one thing is that the cleaning standard were not always consistent, 2 bathrooms share between 14 people when... More

Ok, first let's get this straight: this is a no frills place. Nothing too fancy, but you have enough to crash for the night and being comfortable. They have their full kitchen if you need to cook (and purified water, which is important in Mexico). Rooms have A/C (but only on the night; though if you feel the need to... More

Clean, affordable, feels safe and is a not too lang walk from all the hustle and party in 5th ave. The owner and staff are really helpful, polite and easy to talk to. Its a quiet neighborhood and the house feels homey with cooking-opportunities.
