We had 2 comfortable beds in a spacious private room with bathroom. No hot water in the shower but it was so hot in Mérida we didn't mind. Basic minimal breakfast of white toast with jam or frosty flakes cereal. Coffee wasn't great but you can't be too picky in Mexico! The highlight was definitely the pool area where they let us play our own music through the Bluetooth speaker. There's also a games room with TV, darts and a fusball table. There's a great ice-cream shop next door and lots of restaurants within walking distance.

My wife and I have just spent 4 nights here and really enjoyed this place. The staff are all very friendly and although they don't speak a lot of English, they always try to assist. The Manager Jose is excellent and very friendly. He assisted us with arranging a couple of tours which we thoroughly enjoyed. The hostel is only a 5-10 minute walk to the main streets full of cafes, bars, shopping, and all the main attractions. Great value for money including a cooked breakfast each morning and comfortable room - very quiet.

Just happened to stumble across this location. What a find. Great courtyard area along with a fantastic swimming pool. Very classy construction upgrades being done while I was there. Continental breakfast was provided. WIFI was strong thru out the hostel. Very relaxing. Location was great and within walking distance of the main square and the Paseo de Montejo. Staff was EXCELLENT. I will definitely use this place again.

The staff would barely say hello to you which to me is a big downer especially when most hostels in Mexico have very friendly spontaneous staff. Building is really cool tho! Our room didn't seem to be quite finished tho and also they were building on new parts. I think a nice mural in such a huge high blank room would come a long way to make it more welcoming.

The staff were friendly and helpful- they helped us plan a tour and with many tips on directions and public transportation. The location is great- many great attractions and parks and within a few blocks. The layout and art in the building was interesting and gave the hostel character. Our room wasn't very clean when we first arrived. I asked them to have it cleaned again and they obliged. They say they have free breakfast but it was only coffee and toast so I wouldn't depend on that for much sustenance. The hammocks in the courtyard are wonderful and the pool was nice and clean. There were a group of obnoxious tourists that were staying in the hostel when we were there and although there are signs everywhere stating it must be quiet after 11:00 PM, these guests were very loud 4 nights in a row, up until 3am. I would suggest the staff step in to remind tourists of these hostel rules.

A very cool hostel with a nice pool. 10 minutes walk from the Plaza Grande. The staff was very friendly and the internet was very fast & reliable which is not the case everywhere in Mexico. Continental breakfast which was included in my package was just okay. I brought my own Starbucks instant coffee, so I was more than happy =) on the overall, it was a pleasant stay.

Now I know why this hostel was available as a “deal”.... it was dark, dank, depressing, loud, smelly, honestly- it was disgusting! Our room had no window and no ventilation. Absolutely necessary to view your room before you choose to stay here. In the end, we left two days early because even if we changed rooms we would not want to stay there. The art is creepy and the place is falling apart. The pool is dirty, and there is active construction above it. I wish I didn’t waste my money here, I’m usually not very picky about where we stay but we both agreed this place was horrendous.

About two weeks ago I've been in this place and I need to say that the personal is ver y kind and polite. It is a cheap place to stay, there's a bar in the very front of the hostel. You can come and go at any time 'cause they don't close the door. If you need something you only need to ask for it & they'll atend you. You can meet people from other countries. There is a community kitchen where you can cook. It's a nice place to stay if you're going to visit Merida.

The place was under reconstruction when I visited, and we were not informed about this beforehand. The dormitory was dirty, and the fan was broken. Nothing seemed like it worked like it was supposed to.

Quirky hostel close to the centre of Merida and just across Mercado 60 which is a great place for hanging out in the evenings. Easygoing atmosphere, spacious and artsy, although old. Can't say that breakfast is great but I got a huge single room with two king size beds, air-con and cable TV and spacious bathroom at a lower price than a popular nearby hostel would give me just a bed with shared bathroom and a fan. If you are not too fuzzy with details will suit you.
