For the price, it's a good hostel - on the edge of the city centre, close to the sights, food places, bars....pretty communal areas, very friendly and smiling owners (the man came to meet me at the collectivo stop, and welcomed me with a glass of pulque), a big fruit salad in the morning and I was offered biscuits and...

I stayed at 'Only Backpackers Morelia' for a night when I visited Morelia in May'15. This hostel is in Historical part of Morelia and the hostel feels like home. I liked the hospitality of the hosts. I felt like I was at my parents place... I definitely recommend this hostel. Cheers! Tejas

We walked into this hostel while searching for a new place to stay in Morelia (our original hostel was not great for a number of reasons but that's a different review). Initially we were very impressed by the friendliness of the owners and how helpful they were as soon as we walked in. The hostel inside is a beautiful old... More

This is the best place ever to stay! It is a safe zone, very clean, and turistic. You are attended by the owners, which makes you feel comfortable, and they are very friendly. I do recommend this place!! ,

Wonderful hostel! .The owners are sweet as can be. They run a clean place with plenty of areas to hang with fellow travelers. The breakfast was amazing - fresh fruit and yogurt. And. not only is the place beautiful, it's in a convenient location. I would definitely stay here again!

The owners and there dog were very nice and friendly. The hostel is clean and new. The rooms are a bit dark and I can't remember if there are lockers in the room. But it is a nice low key place a short walk from the center. Go to Morelia it is safe and great!

Good location, near cathedral and aqueduct. Safe area near several fancy hotels with security cops. Wonderful hosts. Dormitories have high ceiling and are clean. Wifi is great, there's a pleasant lounging area with big flat screen TV and colorful cushions on floor where guests can hangout and chat. Very hot water with good water pressure.
