Safe, quiet city
Great hosts. Friendly, speak english, and knowledgeable. Hostal is located five minutes walk from ado bus terminal. Safe, quiet neighborhood. Currently the beach, parks, and alcohol are closed. Still, a nice city for walking around, especially the historical city centre.

This is a lovely little hostel, located just around the corner from the ADO station. We stayed in both a private room and a dorm in our time here, and both were perfectly comfortable. Miguel is an incredibly friendly and helpful proprietor. We'd definitely stay here again if we came back to Merida.
