It was a really nice place to stay, bedrooms or sharing rooms for a good price and breakfast included. We can say there were like a holiday family. The staff is one of the best I could meet on travel. Human and very kind, thanks for everything.

Nice and clean place, friendly People and good pricing. In comparision to other hostels in the city that we tried - this one was good. The guys from the reception were helpful and took good care of us making no pressure on money or reservations. Good idea to go there, but remember it is not a hotel where You could...

Rooms vary in size, bed number and facilities meaning there is something for everyone - and at a reasonable price. Breakfast is free and normally consists of hot cakes, interior is nice, internet access is good and kitchen facilities are good. What really stands out though are the staff. Friendly, accommodating and pleased to help whenever they can - especially...

We stayed at the hostel for two weeks while exploring the San Cristobal area and we really enjoyed ourselves. The hostel is not in the centre of town but its only 3 blocks from Real de Guadalupe where you will find bars, restaurants and other shops. Follow that street a further 3 blocks and you will come to the Zocalo....

The room where I slept was in the main hallway, close to the kitchen. This part of the hostel is often smelly and very loud because the only window in the room faces the hallway. The Wifi was pretty bad and the hostel is not exactly in the center (15 minutes walking distance). People were very nice though.
