First, I'd like to preface this by saying that my criticism should be seen as constructive as all of these issues are fixable, but they were certainly enough to make my 3 days spent there less enjoyable. We stayed in a private room with a king-sized bed and private bathroom. Bathroom - it was awful. The walls and floors are... More

We spent four awesome days at Jardin de Frida. It was the perfect place to stay. Clean, friendly, relaxing, nice people, colors make feel you are in Mexico, good service. You don't need your car. Just rent a bike!

Very clean dorms and overall people were quite respectful of each others. The garden and communal area are extremely peaceful and pleasant and this hostal has it all: big breakfast and shared kitchen, book lending, strong wifi. The only downside is they couldn't lend us padlocks. If you want to rent a bike they'll send you to Kelly's: go there... More

We are a young couple, stayed here for a few nights over New Years. We loved the unique art work everywhere and the homely feel. Our room was spacious and the shower was great pressure with plenty of hot water. Nice features like side tables and wardrobe and big comfy couch on back deck of our room. Lovely dog on... More

The hostel is miles from the beach and there was no bar. The beds were comfy and the showers were hot. It was not too expensive, but we ended up spending more money on taxis to the beach. Tips:- get the local white mini van buses along the coast to Acumal and beyond. There is a local supermarket near by... More

I have stayed there twice in November 2013. This is certainly a place, where you want to comeback, if you enjoy unique places to stay to. Around small garden there are some rooms, private and dormitories, which design has been inspired by frieda kahlo art. There are interesting paintings on the walls and unique printed fabrics in the windows. The... More

We stayed at El Jardin de Frida for 2 nights in a private double room with bathroom. The room was huge with a giant sized bed (a rarity in hostels), wardrobe & hammock in the room. There is no AC, but there are 2 ceiling fans & a stand alone fan, which cooled the room sufficiently. The hostel is about... More
