I did like it as the hostel had a very helping staff and the location is strategic to talk a good walk around the downtown area of Merida. It is just across the cathedral and important landmarks. I even could walk to the bus station to take the Puuc Route tour and got to know 5 different historic places including...

I stayed at Hostal Zocalo for four nights and at 160 pesos a night (£6) I found it to be very good value for money. The hostal is in a great location, right on the main square and a walkable distance form the Coach stations (15 minutes) and various Colectivo stops (10 minutes). As a lone female, I found the...

This is a historic place, economic and very chill environment. You can cook, smoke and use the wi if anytime. Use solar power and they offer tours anywhere. The owner is very open minded and a great team working hard

We had a very pleasant time in this hostal and the breakfast in the open kitchen was great! We could switch the room without any problems and the view from the roof was very nice. You should use the showers early since they tend to run out of hit water after some time

I stayed for about a week in Zoacalo. A few things to say and call out: 1. Breakfast - Zocalo takes pride in having a phenomenal breakfast. It's everything you could need and more. Omelette,cafe, frutas - todo lo que necesitas que tener un día tan bueno! 2. Joel & Javi - on reception. Two of the nicest guys you...

From the moment I stepped in the door I felt at home. The building itself is over 500 years old dating back to the 1500s! The Staff was very welcoming and nice. Very calm and tranquil for being so close to the cathedral and the park. Very big kitchen that you can cook in and the breakfast was included! Can't...

We spend two nights in Hostel Zócalo (private room with private bathroom). Pros: the breakfast is nice but not more - good eggs, some fruits, dry bread.. the location is the best that you can ask for in Merida. Cons: the rooms are small. the fan is not so good and don't help much with the heat. in the second...
