Very cramped female dorms. Only bathroom directly across the hall is really grungy looking and so I chose not to use the shower facilities. Kitchen did not look very clean. I planned on staying longer but left after one night. Price was low but I have stayed in other hostels for the same price and received better attention and used... More

Friendly reception, very basic amenities. Only one bathroom - that's the worse part. But I got a large private room for 300 pesos, with a small balcony with view on parts of the zocalo. The bed was not great, but I've had worse. Had both a ceiling and personal fan. I would recommend it to people looking for basic amenities... More

The title of this review is the tought that came te mind when i woke up in this place. Was it the harsh morning light? No, it was reality... We booked a room, that was actually quit dirty, and i don't remember how much i payed, but it was too much. All you get is a room with a bed... More

Hostel has a perfect location, just in front of the main square, but, there is not pipe on the sink at the kitchen and thats why its always wet, there is no forks, knife, spoons and forget about tools to cook, only 3 chairs at the terrace and staff is always sleeping or playing with the computer.

Unfortunately we have an old lonely planet. The real Monkey Hostel is closed and this new copycat one is just crappy: tiny kitchen and horribly equipped, empty rooftop without a view on the plaza principal, horribly boring staff (!) that sleep (with girlfriend) in the dorms themselves, no common area or computer. WiFi works fine but no Skype. Overall its... More

We wanted to stay in hostel, so when we say the monkey house on the internet, we thought okay looks and sounds good and is cheap. Well it was cheap, and should be, the staff are very unfriendly, there are no blankets on the beds, the beds are as old as the hills, the chairs are all plastic and broken.... More

Did not enjoy our time here. Luckily we're only staying a night otherwise we would have moved. Didn't use the kitchen but wouldn't have wanted to, bathroom was ok clean (flip flop shower), rooms hot and damp and pretty uncomfortable, when it rained outside it also rained just as bad inside - they just gave us a bucket as if...

The hostel is a bit crowded without much spare space like living room. There is only 1 shared bathroom and toilet. If the dormitory bed is filled with full 6 persons you will find it quite crowdy to stay in. However, the location is excellent and very close to the central plaza. As most people find bad comments and avoid... More

The hostel is one of the worst hostels in Mexico.. The pictures uploaded on this site must be from the old location of the hostel. The new hostel of the same name is totally different. No common area (broken plastic chairs and no hammocks), the dorms and toilets are filthy. The staff most of the time is not there. The... More

Great location, that's where the good part ends. Small and dingy rooms. Dirty sheets and no cover sheet offered. There's one bathroom for the whole hostel, and it's small. One small kitchenette too. Basically don't believe Lonely Planet, they've made a big mistake, this is not "the best hostel in Campeche".
