Casa Felipe is this kind of small hostel where the guests get to know the other guests thanks to the size of it and to the central kitchen and outdoor livingroom. The garden is really nice to chill, the kitchen well equiped enough to share meals with others, the bathrooms are clean, with hot water, the staff super helping and,... More

Casa Felipe was a little out of the main scene, which I appreciated. It was relaxed, tidy, safe, and had a lot of cool people working/hanging around. The courtyard was pleasant and a good place to spend time. The Kitchen was manageable, but above all, spacious. I was happy to find this little hostel.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. Everyone very friendly. There is a lot of marijuana smoking, so if this offends you, it might not be the place for you. The rooms definitely have spiders and such, but I think you would find that anywhere. The lockers under the beds to lock your stuff up are quite handy. Not the comfiest beds... More

Paying such a cheap price for a dorm room centered in the main part of the town i was expecting there to be a downside. I was so mistaken. From start to finish Casa Felipe was one of the best experiences of my trip. Starting with the excellent faculties such as the well equipped kitchen and finishing with the super... More

We stayed here for a short amount of time .. And this wasn't the hostel for us, although it may be for some. Positives were price, free water, and location Negatives: drug usage, cleanliness of rooms, mosquitos everywhere, instant coffee, hostel right next to church (loud) , large gap under door a cat could fit through, wifi only in common...

I visited this hostel over four years ago in 2010 and had the most amazing time, so much so I ended up staying there for nearly a month. I met some amazing friends and as I was only 18 at the time this hostel will always hold a special place in my heart. The accommodation was ridiculously cheap, the people... More

If you are like us and like a quiet place to stay this is the place for you. It is a very chilled hostel with a nice garden to hang out in and a lovely cat and dog to pet. We spent our time playing pool and chilling out! The reason I don't give it full stars is because there... More

We only stayed one night at Ya Mamas which is now under a different name but was an awesome place to stay. It was a little difficult to find (don't follow the directions on trip advisor just ask someone standing around). Place has free wifi, kitchen and very secure rooms. Prices are really cheap compared to other locations and it's... More

When I arrived in San Pedro I gave in and checked into one of lonely planet's recommended hostels. At 100Q a night in a dungeon-like dorm, I was lucky to have met two travelers who introduced me to yo mamas ! I quickly left the first hostel and checked in. The young Mayan woman working there is probably the sweetest... More
