Hostal Del Pirata was my crash pad for a couple days while in Campeche, by default - I have an older LP guide, and the Hostal la Parroquia no longer exists... I arrived at night, took a cab, found out Parroquia is gone, and deferred to Pirata. While not great - see other reviews - it wasn't horrible. Only had... More

I stayed here for one night after checking out an even worse hostel at the Zocalo. Was not impressed with Hostal del Pirata... Location is awful. Literally nothing around. It is not far from city center or the sea, but even those dont really count as things to do because theyre not very interesting. I should not bash the city... More

The pirate decor was fun kinda tacky but fun! The rooms were adequate and bfast was a simple affair. For me my concern was the door to our private room... seems like all the doors are designed like in stalls in Comfort Rooms, theres a very big space from the floor to the bottom of your door. I think its... More

Good location, cheap bed with small breakfast included. No mixed dorm, if a girl wants to sleep in a male dorm it's ok. Sheets included, bathroom ok. The problem is that everything beside sleeping and breakfast is charged extra: water to refill your bottle, computers and even if you want to leave your bag for few hours! (it can be... More

You can judge from my previous reviews, I try to be fair and generally positive. However, I should have paid closer attention to the other reviews. Don't make the same mistake. Yes, the private double is small, barely bigger than the bed but I got that from the reviews. However, the room was hot at all times of day, the... More

The double rooms are clean, but really too small. We saw people keeping their luggage outside, because it wouldn't fit in the room! Breakfast was about as plain as it gets. The worst thing though was the staff. They seemed to be absent minded the whole time. The morning we wanted to leave to the ADO bus terminal it was... More

We really enjoyed our staying in this hostel. Its in the centrum, near the market to buy fresh fruit and vegestables and near the bustation in the most beautiful street of Campeche. The staf of the hostel is really friendly, especially Marcos! We slept in the dormroom next to the breakfastplace, so in the morning we got up by the... More

We stayed in a double room and it was quite small but clean, with two fans and a little sofa. The dorms were spacious with lockers for use. The hostel is pretty chilled with lovely staff - really really helpful, for example after ringing our taxi for us Octavio waited outside until they came to double check the price they... More

The room was tiny but clean and comfy, you find space for your stuff. Staff really nice and helpful. There are two rooftops to chill out on and the highest one has a kitchen and tables. We really enjoyed staying here.

We stayed here for the social aspect which was good, nice communal area, they have wifi too. Breakfast is cereal, bread, coffee and fruit, its fine. We stayed in a private room w bathroom for 290 pesos, it was very cramped and quite hot. I've stayed in better rooms for the same price elsewhere in Mexico. The dorms looked like... More
