1. Very dishonest/ money hungry couple running the place...They were not upfront at all about prices of things in the hostel. We found out the hard way at checkout time. 2. There were 3 dogs full of tics living here. 3. No hot water, anywhere, ever. 4. More of a construction site than a place to stay. 5. Strange ladies...

A large brekkie...

Brought here by the owner from Merida, we thoroughly enjoyed our time at this hostel. The owners were lovely and would bend over backwards to accomodate our needs, including a beautiful breakfast daily. The use of a clean and spacious kitchen meant that we were able to cook every day, something we were unable to do previously due to lack...

We were looking for a peaceful place to relax and we found it here. The old building makes you feel special, while sitting in a rocking chair on the huge veranda or in the hamock under the coconut palm. We stayed in a very cute room with an ensuit bathroom which made us feel staying in a hotel and not...
