It was great to be able to check in anytime and the people were nice but that didn't make the shower work any better or the room any cleaner. Everything seemed sort of filthy and that's unfortunate cause the hostel actually has potential to be a great place for all kinds of people...

We were a group of 7 who turned up without a booking. We got 2 of the upstairs private rooms, one with its own kitchen. We stayed 5 nights here and loved it. Its not close to Zicatela but a cab was about 25-30pesos each way. Had mangos for breakfast every morning which we picked up off the ground outside... More

9 people per bathroom, small and crowded, bunks a foot away from each other, no circulation in dorm, loud music everywhere, all the time, brand new staff who knew nothing about anything, moldy smell, couldn't wait to get away from this place

Shabby, grimy frat party! I've stayed at lots of hostels in Mexico and throughout Central America, and I'd put Tower Bridges in my top 3 most obnoxious places to stay. It's got that spring break girls-gone-wild gringo vibe, where you hear dudes (and I do mean "dudes") shouting about how they "just finished my third beer bong of the day... More

A very warm welcome by T and Inge who make you immediately feel at home. I stayed longer than I had planned because I had such a good time. I had a private room which was nice and clean. There is a nice bar if you want to meet other travellers, but if not, there other places to relax. Defenitely... More

Fun and pretty it may well be, but the management is an absolute joke. I had booked to stay here some months in advance at a very busy time, When we arrived, we were told our reservation was no longer valid 'because there were some people in our room already'. A few days earlier, some people had occupied our reserved... More

It's a great place to make friends and have fun. It's a bit far from everything beach and clubs. But I had a great time there. I had a private room so it was ok not really super clean, but just ok. If you wanna have fun stay there, but if wanna rest look for another place.

The hostel is very dirty and has old facilities. We had a lottt of cockroaches in our room. The owner was very friendly and helpfull, some... More

When we first arrived we were reafy to leave, the staff were rude and wouldn't acknowledge we had paid a deposit. Also the bathrooms in the girls dorm have no partitions and the door see through...which is weird. But after a day or two we realised how lovely the staff are and how much fun this hostel is. Unfortunately it's... More
