This is a great hostel! It's small and cosy and has everything you need to feel very comfortable and at home. Dorm rooms are cleaned daily, beds made, and extra blankets provided for those chilly Chiapas nights. Bathrooms are always clean, showers are hot and the hostel provides a towel- a real, thick, water absorbing towel. Breakfast is great: fruit,...

I cannot stress enough how highly I recommend this place. The staff are fluent in many languages, always happy to help with any questions, problems or recommendations. The outdoor courtyards are peaceful and clean, the breakfast supplied is great and the rooms are full of character, whilst being comfortable and safe. It is centrally located, so walking to markets/restaurants etc...

This is the best-run hostel I've stayed at. The rooms are comfortable if a bit cold, and the free breakfast is excellent (they provide nice bread from a local bakery, not sad, bagged wonder bread like other places I've stayed in mexico). Everything is very clean and they provide free drinking water and have coffee available at all hours (for...

Nice hostel and an excellent value for the price. A little far to walk from the bus station with heavy backpacks but definitely walkable to nice shops and restaurants on Real de Guadalupe. Beds were clean and plenty of heavy blankets for the cold nights. We only stayed one night before heading to Palenque, but will surely return to quaint...

Best hostel in the city if you're not a party person. It's not very close to the center, but the walk is rewarding. There are a few more hostels on the same street, but this one appears to be the most friendly. Colibri /humming birds everywhere and no city noise.

I stayed for three nights. First, the location is 5 minutes away from Guadalupe, where many restaurants and cafes are. It's easy to walk to the center and is quiet at night. Second, rooms and bathrooms are good. Bed is comfortable and sheets are clean. Bathroom is clean and hot shower is availiable any time. Third, the hostel is an...

Lovely guest house perfectly situated close to the heart of the city. The cleanest we've had in Mexico. Nicely flowered courtyards and gardens. Friendly hosts, bery coosy kıtchen and common space. Our favourite after one month of backpacking in Mexico!
