This was my favorite hostel during my travels in the Yucatan Peninsula. Valladolid (I learned how to say it by the end of my stay there, ha) is also a very cool place, it's very peaceful and you get a small-town feeling that is very different from other parts of the Yucatan Peninsula (i.e. Cancun, Tulum, Isla Mujeres, etc) The...

Located a short walk from the ADO bus station, this hostel is nestled right in the heart of Valladolid. We stayed in this quaint Colonial town for easy access to Chichen Itza. Our private room had a double bed and two bunk beds which was exactly what we needed. The facilities in the hostel were great. The staff here are...

This was, by far, the best hostel that we've stayed at in the Yucatan peninsula. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the breakfast was delicious, our private room was very clean and cozy. The communal areas were very well maintained. We highly recommend it!

This hostel was a pleasure, free bikes, friendly well informed and polite staff and a good breakfast. I enjoyed my stay here and even prolonged it. There's a rooftop terrace large enough to practice yoga under the stars and two really well equipped kitchens that are kept spotlessly clean. Comfy beds, secure lockers, good showers, I would highly reccomend this...

It is a busy hostel next to the Candelaria church about 4 blocks from the bus station and 6 blocks from the plaza. The staff is mostly OK and helpful, some of them a bit too busy to really pay attention at you. It's reasonably priced, around $350 - $420 per night, a working Kitchenet, WiFi, bike rental and gardens....

We stayed in the hostel 2 nights in the dorm room. We had excellent welcome and great advice about the city and the place to eat tacos, the cenote, etc. The garden is really nice and peaceful.we rented two bikes and drove to the villages next to valladolid. Just for you to know, there's no air-conditioning but ventilators.

We had a great time at this hostel, made some great friends as the common area is great. Also, the breakfast was the best hostel breakfast that we've ever had and the cleanliness in general was superb. There were a couple of things which could be improved: the dorm room was very warm as there was no real airflow; the...

I was relaxing in my room when I overheard an uproarious joyful noise from the front room of the Hostel Candelaria. I assumed it was one of my husband's silly jokes that got folks going, but really it was too exuberant for that! Instead, just arrived, was the 2015 Trip Advisor award for this amazing Hostel. The proprietor, Pedro, couldn't...

I stayed in La Candelaria twice and both times it was a perfect hostel experience. The location is great. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The facilities are clean, they work and there are lots of them. The breakfast is large and tasty. There are pleasant outside areas.
