I really liked my stay here. It was very close to everything in the centre and near local buses. Staff were very friendly and they had great Spanish which is really helpful for my terrible Spanish! There is also complimentary breakfast daily, of coffee, cereal, bread/toast. Room was clean, bed was comfy. Soap and towel supplied. Good security. 24 hour... More

I stayed at this hostel for around ten days and it was a great experience. My stay was in two parts - one for two nights with my teenage kids in a private room with bathroom, the other in a 12-bed dorm with a group of people I was working with on a volunteer project. The staff was really helpful... More

This hostel is brilliant. The manager stayed up in order to let us in at 4am as this was the only bus we could get from san cristobal. All the staff went out of their way to get us all of the information we needed and to make our stay comfortable. Clean, light and airy rooms with big windows and... More

We arrived from Oaxaca at 4am and were let in by Marco who was waiting up for us. He tried to stop our taxi driver from ripping us off but you can't win 'em all... He helped us upstairs to our dorm with our luggage, all the time whispering and not turning on unnecessary lights and didn't make us sign... More

Stayed here in April visiting friends studying in the city, nice hostel very central to the city, it rained which made sleeping fine although I can imagine the dorms can get very stuffy in warmer months. I have never stayed in a hostel with such a powerful shower it was amazing on a weary, hungover body. However I did have... More

Pros: This is a nice, cheap hostal near to all the things in the Zocalo. You get towels upon checking in, which was good since we forgot ours. The area felt safe, and we slept well our two nights here. Cons: Our room didn't have a window to crack open, which made it stuffy at night. There is a fan... More

Love this place. Close to the Zocalo (city center) and lots of wonderful places. Tables in courtyard. Friendly fun conversation. Things well taken care of. Room adjacent to courtyard or off balcony upstairs. Restaurants nearby. Had a very nice private room. WiFi of course, like everywhere in Mexico.

The hotel is located on main street and very close to zocalo and some sights. No problem to go back late night. All receptionists spoke English fluently which was a big and pleasant surprise to us because most people we met in hostels and hotels spoke little or no English. Staff were very helpful too. When they learnt we were... More

I stayed in this nice hostel some days at the beginning of August. The staff was really friendly and helpful! The house is nice, with a sunny patio (where they also serve the breakfast) and a roof terrace (great place to meet other travelers). The rooms were clean. I stayed in a 6-bed dorm and it had its own bathroom.... More
