Central location but quiet. Good breakfast and helpful staff and friendly owner, Victor. They seem to put people in the dorms at the front but we found them very cramped and hot and asked to be moved to the dorm at the back which felt roomier and fresher. There are mosquito blinds but gaps above the doors and I got... More

This hostel is in a prime location - close to everything! Dorms are a bit noisy - standard for large dorms. Bathroom was clean in the morning then by the end of the day, a bit smelly - standard for 12 people sharing one toilet and one bathroom with no ventilation. Staff could not do a better job. They are... More

At the end of an incredible year spent living in Mexico I came to visit Valladollid and stayed at Hostal del Fraile. I could not have asked for a better place to stay. The Hostal is a short walk from the bus terminal and collectivo points. It's surrounded by lots of places to eat and drink, with a beautiful square... More

we stayed in a private room and it was good, breakfast is included and is good as well. The location is ideal being withing close walking distance to city center and the ADO bus depot, a parking within the compound is provided for those coming with their own vehicle

BED BUGS BED BUGS BED BUGS!!! Enough said. Also, don't let the "tour guide" (although I never saw anyone ever taking a tour with him) invite himself to dinner with you, unless you want an overpriced meal and an overly hands on massage where he will grope you inappropriately

Good hostel, value for money. We stayed in one of the private rooms with shared bathroom. The rooms are small and basic, but clean. The beds are a bit old though, so that can be a bit uncomfortable, but it's ok. The rooms have a good fan, so it's not too warm. Staff is ok, not specifically friendly or unfriendly.... More

Stayed here for 2 nights to visit nearby sites of Chichen Itza and Ek Balam. Hostel is located a 5 minute walk from the busstation and also to the center. The hostel has friendly staff in place, is fairly clean and the breakfast is simple, but sufficient. It has a shared area, but not especially comfortable or cosy. Same goes... More

Pretty nice place. Small but clean kitchen. Weak shower pressure and very old sheets. Wifi is ok but only one computer. Breakfast is good and there's a delicious cake shop out the front. Staff are friendly and helpful. Water available. Close to centre and shops. Watch out for Victor he likes to sing!

its not golden, its not bronze, its somewhere in between. The good things about the hostel is first, the location. its probably in one of the best Streets to be in. only 5 minutes walk away of the busstation, and the zocalo. Good restaurants in the same street if you're not on the lowbudget. But prices are still very fair.... More

We arrived late in valladolid, and found this place as the cheapest decent place to stay (there are cheaper solutions, but they did not look very reliable). Nevertheless, the region has better (and cheaper on offer) than 280 for two people in a dorm). also, although 24h reception was promised, returning from a night out (Halloween), we found the door...
