This is an excellent little hostel, we had a private room which was well maintained, clean and had a nice feeling about it. The staff here are very helpful, Manuel welcomed us with a map of the area and told us the best places to go. Very friendly. The little pool is refreshing in the heat and is also very... More

I spent a single night here and really enjoyed my stay. The property is located along a well kept, pretty street leading to one of the town's main attraction. The hostel was comfortable with all the facilities you'd expect. The staff were friendly and one of the guys took us for some cheap authentic dinner before having a few beers... More

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!
