We stayed in the hostel only for a night as a stop over to visit Chichen Itza and the surrounding cenotes. The hostel is a 5 minute walk from the main ADO bus stop in Valladolid. it is located near a small square in one of the residential sections. The town center is not too far from the hostel either - about 7-10 min walk.
When we got to the hostel we were checked into one of the lovely double rooms. The owner was very friendly and gave us many tips on how to get to places of interests. He also helped us set our itinerary based on the amount of time we had. We were each given a hand drawn map of Valladoild to help us explore the town by ourselves.
The hostel itself is very well maintained and has a beautiful courtyard garden. Around the garden is a place to regroup, sit and read/drink or chat with fellow backpackers. Alongside there is an outdoor kitchen and breakfast section which can be used by one and all. Further down towards the end of the garden is a lovely hammock area surrounded by ferns, trees and other potted plants - instant hit with most guests.
The room we were given was small but clean. It was designed minimally and had a bed, a television set, table and chair. Though the room had a ceiling fan it wasn't sufficient for the Mexican heat. An additional fan was provided which worked really well to help cool off. We were expecting many mosquitoes but were surprised to find none in the room. The linens and towels provided were clean.
The shared bathrooms were opposite to our room and were well maintained. Initially while booking the hostel, I was a bit apprehensive about shared bathrooms but in the end it turned out just fine. There is hot water supply all day.
The hostel is a great place for backpackers and budget travelers. The tariff includes breakfast and all the facilities are free for use - great value. The only regret I have is that we did not stay on longer to enjoy the hostel and Valladolid.
