Has anyone stayed at this hostel? It offers a double room with TV and fan for 150 pesos and is positioned just a hundred metres to your right when walking out the ADO bus terminal. It seemed great value to me and my travelling buddy when we arrived in Valladolid.
There was a boy of about 16 years old who appeared to be working there with his family. He seemed friendly enough when we arrived but a bit odd all the same. We decided to stay here two nights. The first night was relatively uneventful, although I was a bit worried that we didnt have a complete wall seperating our room from the corridor, so despite locking the door, someone could quite easily climb over the wall above it into our room. There were also windows a long the top of one wall that appeared to lead to an easily accessible roof, and at one point the boy tried to come into our room despite us saying everything was ok. Anyway, we both woke up kin the morning and everything was fine.
That day we returned after seeing Chichen itza for another night in this hostel. At about 11pm I decided to have a shower to cool off since the room was hot. I stood there for a while with my eyes shut and when I opened them I saw someones eye staring at me through a crack in the window. When I jumped out the shower I saw the face disappear quickly, and after a moment I opened the window to find that it opened to the floor of another bedroom. There was nothing in the room that could have been mistaken for what I saw so I went back into the bedroom feeling quite uneasy. Soon after there was a loud banging noise coming from the corridor. I quickly opened the door and found him in the corridor although he said he didnt know what was going on. After 5 mins he knocked on the door again to say that it was some children. We had never seen nother person staying at this hostel apart from us but we decided to give this benefit of the doubt and tried to watch a film to fall asleep. We are both guys aged 21 and 22. After about ten minutes we began to hear two people having sex loudly and I assumed this was coming from the room beside the bathroom. After a while we turned off the tv and found that the sounds were actually coming from across the hall where the boy usually sat and from the sound of it his door must have been wide open. We thought this was quite strange and decided to flick through the tv to see if it was one of our channels. It turned out it was and when the noises didnt stop we decided to feel uncomfortable and decided to pack our bags for a quick getaway it it was necessary. We sat there with the light on and after a while his film ended and we began to relax. There was a bang as if he was shutting the door to go to sleep. As we sat there with the lights on watching tv we decided to wait up til 6 and try get an early bus out of this place. After a while I began to feel drowsy again since it was about 2am by now. I rolled over on my bed and thats when I saw his silhouette for the second time this time staring directly into our room! When he saw me point he ran away and immediately we got up to leave. We left then and there and walked downstairs to find him sitting there and the front door was locked. Without saying anything or asking us any questions he went to get the keys and let us out. Luckily we managed to get a bus at about 2.30 to cancun and left.
The whole thing was very unsettling since we think he must have been watching us the night before too and we hadn´t noticed. Also we appeared to be the only people staying there despit it being quite big. Just warning people to avoid this Hostel if they dont want a similar experience. Has anyone else had this happen to them?? There is no mention of this hostel on the internet as far as we can tell
