We are a hostel located in one of the best areas in Merida , just a few steps from Paseo Montejo , museums , art galleries and other important sights of this city. For us the most important thing is to make your stay the ideal place where you can share and interact with people from different cultures and at the same time enjoy a nice place to rest after a day full of activities
