Went last year for my birthday and service was great. So when we returned to Xela this was the logical choice. Price increase because of holidays not too bad. Breakfast is included (really good and hearty), no drink. They also have a new option (didn't last year in September) that is you are leaving early they can make you a ham and cheese sandwich or a veggie and cheese sandwich. All rooms share bathrooms (even private); dorms hold between 6-7 people. They have lockers (about 10 inches tall) and they rent out locks if you need to. Hot and cold water. Nice place to hang out. They have a little restaurant and service is generally good. Location is by central park. A little difficult to get to from bus terminal but you can catch a micro bus, Q2 (drops you off 2 corners away) or a taxi (up to Q50, sometimes you can haggle). My top choice to stay in Xela.
