There is a lovely pool here, I heard someone stayed here that it used to be better before with activities and breakfast included, it was just missing that extra to make it special, close to eateries and attractions

I stayed at Nomadas Hostel for 4 nights from March 3-7, 2020 as a solo traveler in the 8 bed female dorm.

The dorm was comfortable and simple and had 4 metal bunks. The bottom bunks were all double beds and I lucked out with that! Each person had their own medium sized locker (locks were provided). The door to the dorm did not have a lock on it and I would have felt a little more secure if it had. Each bed had an outlet and reading lamp, but no privacy curtains. The other women in my dorm were all respectful and quiet, so no issues there, and I had a good sleep. The dorm had two washrooms just outside the room and there were showers in the larger female dorm next door and in a separate building near the pool as well. The showers in the large female dorm were clean and had consistent hot water.

The hostel property was nice and there was an outdoor lounge area behind the reception building with tables and chairs, and some seating inside the reception area. The Wi-Fi worked well throughout the property and there were multiple networks to connect to for different areas. The hostel also had a guest kitchen to cook your own food and a games room/lounge. There were different activities every day of the week with lots of opportunities to try new things or meet other people. There was salsa every evening, yoga classes in the mornings, cooking classes, and live trova music in the evenings. The salsa was really fun and yoga was relaxing. I also enjoyed the live music.

The best part about this hostel though was the amazing outdoor pool! Merida is super HOT and it was so nice to go for a refreshing swim after a day of exploring in the heat. There were wooden lounge chairs (not the comfiest, but if you lay your towel on them, it's a little better) around the pool and hammocks hanging over the shallow end. I enjoyed relaxing here and it was very peaceful and lovely, with the pool being surrounded by lush jungle plants. It was like an oasis and it definitely didn't feel like you were in the middle of a bustling city.

There was complimentary breakfast starting at 7 am which included fresh fruit (usually bananas and various others), eggs, beans, coffee/tea, and cereal. It was basic but good enough for me.

The location of the hostel was on a fairly busy street about 6 blocks north of the main plaza/park. It was about a 10-15 minute walk to the central area of Merida. The city overall was very easy to walk around and all of the main attractions are in the central area. Merida was a lovely city to explore and it was a great base for visiting ruins and cenotes in the surrounding area. There are lots of amazing day trips to take and the hostel provides an informational sheet with all the different things you can do and see.

I have stayed at this hostel once in 2015 and enjoyed it so much that I returned again during this trip. Loved my experience here again and would recommend for those looking for a budget-friendly, comfortable, clean and relaxed hostel.

Lovely hostel, great location, good classes! Very friendly and helpful staff. Really close to the zocolo (10 min walk) and some nice restaurants and bars. Amazing swimming pool area and great classes on offer, I did the cooking class and made chicken fajitas.

Let me explain.

The showers and bathrooms are in your room so you will be woken up by drunk people pooping.

The rooms are right next to the road so cars zooming by will keep you up.

The rooms are right next to the smoking section, so you will smell cigarettes all night. When I asked the front desk guy about it, he said he couldn’t do anything and that people can smoke whenever they want to. Even though I was sick it made it hard to breathe.

You cannot under any circumstances have guests over. Friends at another hostel and you want to play cards? Not here. I’ve had guests over at every other hostel.

The worst of it was when I was checking out. After staying three nights they wouldn’t let me keep my bag in the luggage room for 3 hours while I was waiting for my bus back to playa del Carmen. So much space to put my bag, I have been a guest for three days, but none of that matters after 11:00.

In fact it didn’t matter so much that while I was in the lobby with all of my luggage saying my goodbyes to my friends they kicked me out. They all told me I have to leave the hostel.

Incredibly rude.

I would never ever stay at this hostel again and I would advice you to avoid it at all costs, they are toxic and lie in their description claiming they care about their customers and their comfort. It’s just all BS. I literally got sick staying here because I could not sleep.

0/10. Horribly rude service, horrible sleeping conditions, and bad amenities. Shower drains don’t drain, pool isn’t clean, showers and toilets in your room, ect...

When it’s popular, it’s bad..no, terrible.. what a horrible way to say goodbye to friends on my trip of a lifetime. While being stared down and told to leave.

BTW, that was only at 11:20, it’s not like I stayed hours past check out time. And I was in the lobby.
Never again.
