I love this place! This was a place I always returned to during my travels in Mexico. The breakfast was always homemade and so yummy, there were always bikes to borrow (however, check them before you decide to go out on a long bike excursion) and the people running the place were so helpful!

Top features include the legendary breakfasts (different every day), free bikes (regularly maintained to a good standard), perfect location for the ruins and beach (the... More

The hostel offers a free bike service, which is convenient for going to the beach, cenotes, and into town. The hostel is located about 5 minutes by bike from the town. The hostel staff... More
