Dirty, messy, and the staff is difficult to get a smile out of. A long time since this place was an excellent accommodation in Mérida. This place is in dire need of renovation. Curtains for doors in the bathroom and the doors to the baths were falling from the hinges. Don’t know

Is there an additional person charge for a 12 year old child staying in a private room with both parents? Or, like many other places, a child stays for free?

We would like a room with a private bath, what cost ? Nov 7 for 4 nites ? Is called the "basic room " ? at $15 US ?? Is there still lots of noise (music) from the workers in late evening and early morning ? How far from main bus terminal, we're coming from Cancun. How do we reserve the room with private bath in room ?

Hello I would like to know if you have any room with private bathroom. We are couple travelling. Thank you
Yes, there are both rooms, some with private bathroom, others cheaper with shared bathroom. The hotel is very clean and the room without bathroom are of great value. Enjoy your stay

Hello, I've already made reservations for MAY 2016. Question 1. is there a public transportation (Bus, Train) that can take me from the hostel to the Merida International airport (Manuel Crescencio Rejon International Airport)?
There are collectivo's, but for 100 pesos, you can take a cab to the airport from anywhere in Merida and save the stress.

"Stay on a private room. They are not expensive and they are worth it."
"balcony rooms to the plaza como with the siren to cross the road. I hope they turn this new edition down or off in the future!"
"If you are two people it is worth getting a double room, some rooms you can hear the cross walk chime all night."
"Chose one away from the street for a little less noise."
"The girls dorm is very hot"
$17 - $27 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
