We stayed in this hostel July 2015. It has very convenient location as it is close to the cathedral and has plenty of food and shops nearby. The rooms are nice, although rather dull. They are completely white and didn't have much artwork or design. However, I can't complain about my sleep because the hostel was pretty quiet, and we... More

I booked this place for Christmas for my partner and I. I checked serval times over the phone and email (I speak fluent Spanish) that the private room had a bathroom and all of the other things we wanted because it was a special time of year. We arrived and found out quickly everything they told us was a complete... More

I stayed there for 3 nights and the place was quite nice. I didn't want to share a room with anyone so I had a big suite just for me with a private bathroom (toilet and shower). Sadly enough, while I expected to have a quiet stay in the hostel, the strip club next to the building was quote loud... More

the hotel staff was very nice and trying its best, but the room reaks of cigarette smoke, there were questionable stains everywhere on the bed sheets, and the bed was nested on a 'mezzanine' with the most ridiculous small stairs... what a shame! and the location is ok but you still have to walk 15 minutes to the center. sorry...

We stayed here and loved it. The shuttle from the airport leaves you right around the corner...so convenient and inexpensive too. It works out great if you have two or more people because the rooms have 2-4 beds which is really great for the price. Sushi restaurant next door is great and really cheap! My only tiny observation was the... More

My partner and I stayed at Lit after finding the prices were best here, though still high compared to other places in Mexico - be prepared, 250 pesos for a double "dorm"! Some walking around with luggage fresh after our flight proved Guad was just slightly beyond our budget and Lit certainly the best deal. However the receptionist (good English,... More

Nice hostel, friendly staff and good location, even if not too safe during the night. Could be better cleaned and the female bathroom is too small. The breakfast is enough - bread, cereal, coffee and butter.

“Stay away from the rooms next to the street”

“I took pictures of all the rooms and next time I will stay in the Sublime or the Cool. The rate for these private rooms is about $26.00 for a single.....what a deal. On this trip I simply needed a clean bed to sleep before heading out for an extreme day of sightseeing with friends who live there.”

“Your in the heart of it all so you'll def hear the traffic noise. If that is a problem ask for a room further back. Most rooms are facing the front with the view so the back rooms are limited. You will fill vibrations from big trucks. But all the good makes up for this one bad.”

“the north side was quieter. It was slow during my stay so very few clients and quiet. i do not like a party atmosphere with loud drunken clients. during the night, there is a night person sleeping in the common area so very secure.”
