Rather clean, staff has a weird and very odd vibe. Great location and nice pool, that's about it! It sucks that it only allows "vegetarian" cooking only, if you are in a budget that pushes you to go out and have a snack or dinner if you are not vegetarian therefore spend more money! Why it's so difficult to have... More

If you just need a cheap spot to crash, this will do. But don't expect much more than that. The room is, how do I say this nicely, just not that nice, but the sheets are clean and the room is cleaned every day (we stayed in a private room). We stayed a few days during the low season and... More

Stayed here before heading down south, and honestly it set the bar too high for any other hostel in Belize or Guatemala to match up to (in terms of ammenities). I truly realized how spoiled I had been after my stay, but having a pool inside, air conditioning, and double beds was seriously so so nice. Riding the bike to... More

This place sucked. I can't even be bothered listing the amount of things that were wrong with it but here are some quick things. 1. The room felt like you were in a dungeon .. It was overly dark and the fan made the room hotter 2. Air con was only on between 9pm and 9am and even when it... More

The only positive aspect of this hostel was Javier, the front desk guy, who is always very attentive and sincere, and he also served as a spotless maître de chambre. The other person who works at nights, is a snobby Argentinean girl. There's a small mezcal bar above the hostel, so the party goes on until 2:00 AM. Breakfast is... More

First of all, we knew we were booking a cheap hostel but this place just sucked. To start there was the LEAST friendly staff EVER!! We caught them once blatantly have a negative conversation about us in front of us! We also had to beg for toilet paper... they were just so rude. Second of all the rooms were horrible,... More

Nice place, kind of pricey. Our toilet would not flush, we finally just got in the habit of filing our trash can in the shower to pour into toilet. Would definitely go back, probably just a fluke. Nice pool and good enough location

First I was sleeping there over two night, but I liked it so much and spend one other night there. The vibe and the location are very nice. The bad thing is, I think it is a little bit to expensive and there is a nice kitchen but allowed were only vegetarian food! Thank you :)

Very good, the cereal breakfast was good and always enough for everyone. Great location, close to the ruins and cenotes. However they did not offer the option for two people to share a double bed when booking online! The staff were so friendly and helpful.

I really like this place, but I thought the price was a little high. It was clean and cute, my only huge problem was our toilet. The freaking thing wouldn't flush to save my life. Finally we started gathering water in a trash can to pour in the toilet and that would work. I was worried about the noise, but... More
