As this was my first time in a hostel, I found the place to be pretty good. In Merida, you simply can't beat the location of Hostal Zocalo right on the square. Our view was absolutely gorgeous and I enjoyed hearing the street noise at night. We staying in a room without an ensuite so we used their shared showers...

Can't beat Zocalo for location - right on the main historical square with lots of great sights, bars and restaurants nearby. Our private double room was a disappointment - downstairs near the laundry and people could see in (room 15) as they walked down the at night when we had the light on (despite the young guy assuring us this...

A comfortable place to stay in city centre. great location, the private room was spacious. Very comfortable bed and linen, I can see how on a warm night you could feel a lack of breeze as the room is a bit hidden, fortunately we had some cloudy days and cool nights. No views, only an internal patio. Everything seemed very...

We just stayed here and trully liked it. The location was perfect. The staff was very nice and friendly. The breakfast was absolutely the best that I have ever seen and the staff cared that we would try everything! Many reviews I looked at complained about it being dirty. I think as well that it could be more clean, but...

It's been one of the worst experiences I have ever had!!! This hostal for starters it's extremely dirty, the bathrooms, private rooms, and hall are always dirty. Plus, if you add to all of that bedbugs... NEVER STAY THERE. We stayed three nights, the first night we thought that we had a lot of mosquitoes, but the next night we...

Our stay at Hostel Zocalo unfortunately started with not having our room available despite reservation. However, the staff was very helpful in arranging a hotel room across the street for which it covered the whole price. We could still use all facilities of the hostel. Starting off the breakfast was probably the best we have ever experienced in a hostel....

Only stayed here a night but enjoyed it, the other guests were nice and the staff friendly and helpful recommending restaurants etc. breakfast was great - fresh fruit, omelettes and pancakes made to order, cereal, bread, coffee etc. And location is perfect for exploring the city. Also highly recommend restaurant chaya maya - best food we've had in Mexico!
