A hostel with a pool? Yes, please. Jan 08, 2011
I loved this hostel! Okay, there was a night or two when I was cursing the 'fun' factor because it meant that I couldn't be fast asleep by 10 pm, but on the night that I stayed up and played cards for hours with a couple Aussies we met I wasn't complaining. Plus, it has a pool, how cool is that?

I stayed in the all girls dorm, which had 20 beds and a couple hammocks. It was incredibly spacious and had a huge bathroom with two toilets and two showers, a vanity, even a scale and a clothes rack. Each bed has a fan and a light, as well as a lock box big enough to stick my backpack in. There were also coat hooks everywhere.

The free breakfast was coffee and toast with butter and jam, and there was live music during the week from 9 pm till 10 pm. Internet was fast and free, with three computers to fight for, and the tours we booked through the hotel were all well run and decently priced. The warm water was fickle, and all but one of my showers were cold. I have to say though, the shower that wasn't cold was incredibly hot, hotter than I get at home. It was lovely.

I loved that atmosphere here, and wouldn't stay anywhere else if I were to plan another visit to Merida. My best advice - pack bug spray!! I got eaten alive by the mosquitoes, and didn't even know it until it was too late.

Pleasant hostel with great garden pool and atmosphere Aug 16, 2011
In Merida we stayed at the Nomadas Youth Hostel which is bookable on many hostel booking sites. Not many hostels call themselves "youth" hostels anymore. At our age, we certainly took the "youth" out of it when we checked in!

For two people, it was very economical to have a private room with ensuite. Our room was next to the courtyard and it was slightly noisy on one out of three nights ... so it depends on the company that you have. We hear that the rooms on the front can be noisy from traffic.

From the road and the hostel's facade, you'd never imagine that it would have a large garden with a giant tree and a lovely pool. Its the magic of Spanish town-planning with large square blocks which permit each property to have land behind.

The ensuite was new and clean ... we didn't inspect the shared facilities. There is a kitchen for those who wish to cook for themselves.

The place overall was clean enough and I'd certainly recommend it as it has a lovely atmosphere.

If there is any criticism, it's because it gets quite hot in Merida. Some people may be more comfortable with air-conditioning but it was borderline bearable for us in mid-August.

Good on picture, great in reality Nov 13, 2010
Part from weird bugs around the food at breakfast this was a great place to stay in. Nice atmosphere. Great that they have salsa lessons,the teacher was very good, the music afterwards help ending the days in a really good way. The backgarden with pool,hammacks and iguana garden was definetely best. Will return if I go back to Mexico and Merida .
