We stayed in a private room one night because our usual hotel in Merida was full. We usually prefer a private room and bathroom, although we've stayed in hostals before and it's worked out fine. This one exceeded our expectations! We had a private room with a balcony overlooking the zocalo, which was fantastic. Of course it was noisy due to street noise, but we expected that. Breakfast was good, staff was friendly, and it had the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in in Mexico! We found the bathrooms to be adequate. We would stay here again, but we'd be careful about the room we chose. Some of the dorm beds are right next to the bathroom so everyone has to walk right by sleeping people to use the bathroom.
