Backpackers Inn is a hotel in its infancy. It hasn't figured out the ultimate mission ... a budget backpackers hangout or elegant boutique hotel. The latter is the likely outcome. For the budget minded this is the real deal. There is nothing bad to say about Backpackers. It is a gorgeous space. The traditional courtyards and upscale conveniences are such a treat ... especially at the price. A hot breakfast was included with our room. It is generous and if you stay a few days you will find that they change the breakfast selection daily. The staff is accommodating to any need you might have. Laundry service is provided by staff. A kitchen and coffee is available all day and there is enough english spoken at the front desk to assist those of us who can't manage spanish as well as we should. The small pool provides a nice afternoon break from your street adventures. A favorite feature for us was the coffee bar with its expresso and cappuccino made to order.
The two rooms to the right of the pool take full sun for a good portion of the day. They won't cool down well without paying for AC. The rooms between the two courtyards cool down nicely with ceiling fans and 20+ foot ceilings. The other rooms around the main courtyard are fine without AC. Some of these are smaller and a real bargain.
