I stayed at the hostel part of the area and when I came in the floors were filthy. The guy before me has been there for about 6 days and said the floors haven't been swept or moped when he was there. The bathroom sinks were clogged so the water floods everytime you wash your hands. The staff were pretty... More

This hostel is in a good location to the Museo de Antropologia and Noches Mexicanas fiesta on the weekend. We were disappointed on several other fronts though. We had booked a room with a double bed but they gave us a windowless twin room bed near the communal showers instead and the beds were uncomfortable. The prices for each room... More

Rooms are cheap and clean with a TV and air con.. beds are comfortable.. shower is clean.. small kitchen which is handy.. you can't go wrong for the price.. It's not a typical "backpacker" party hostel but its right next door to the biggest one and half the price 😊

Stayed for 2 nights with my boyfriend. A short walk in to Merida town (about 10 minutes). Nice big rooms with air conditioning. Great value for money! Would definitely recommend to anyone planning to visit Merida. Staff were pleasant although could have perhaps provided a bit more information on local events. There was a meridian dance in the main square... More

I only had the opportunity to stay in Merida for one night, so I wanted something reasonably close to both the bus station and the city centre in order to enjoy the nights stay. The hostel is certainly within walking distance to the main hub, but you will likely need to arrange a taxi or local collectivo to get to... More

I stayed in luna nueva 3 nights, hostel is well located and recently renovated but I would never recommend it to anyone! Why? The staff is horrilble. Extremely rude people, at least two guys. When at the breakfest I asked for water for tea they said that's it's finished (I just came), then when I started arguing they finally gave... More

I was very surprised what kind of hostel could Merida hide :-) Centrally located, close to both sides of Merida (cathedral and promenade), helpful staff and very friendly. Well, you have to speak spanish because knowledge of english is limited.... Extremely hot in the dorm. I was dying but they supplied with 2 more fens after all. The place is... More

We spent four nights at the Luna Neuva. It was a bit of a walk from two of Merida's three bus stations (15 to 20 city blocks). The staff was friendly, but only one of them really seemed to speak or understand English. We managed, but just a heads-up if you have zero Spanish. It's an easy walk to the... More

Actually we were booking a room over booking.com. All different roomtypes were listed there and we chose a twinroom with seating area, windows to the outside, fan and AC for 800 pesos. When we arrived in the morning we were given a smelly little room with no window, AC and no seating area for the same price!. Unfortunately my spanish... More
