Do not stay here. I travelled alone as a solo woman in January 2013. When I arrived I was the only guest. The female owner was cranky because I turned up several hours late from the bus, at about 9pm. She refused to boil water for a cup of tea (in fact, she said 'can't you get hot water from the shower?'). It's a long walk from the centre of town and there's nowhere to eat, unless you like eating American-style chicken wings in Mexico. In the morning, I said I was going to move. I'd booked for four nights and paid a deposit. I asked that that go towards my room bill. The owner was really hostile and said no - the deposit would be divided by four (as I'd booked for four nights) and only a quarter would be deducted from my bill. Then she tried to cheat me on the exchange rate, as I'd been unable to get any pesos the night before. I asked to see what calculations she made on her mobile phone. She and her daughter became furious, yelled at me, grabbed my arms, physically pushed me around. I speak Spanish fluently; language was not the problem. They shoved me back in the room and stood over me while I packed. I was shaking. I tried to give them the money *they* wanted for one night, because I was starting to get a very bad feeling about all of this and I just wanted to leave, but they refused to take anything and literally pushed me out of their (otherwise empty) hostel, yelling at me the whole time. Then they stood at the gate and glared at me walking up the road until I found a taxi to take me to another hostel. I was really shaken afterwards. I complained to the local tourism board, who couldn't believe it. Never, ever, stay here; these people are really horrible.
