It's magico!”

The location is divine -- footsteps from the clear clean Cenote-like azul Lake Bacalar. The building is new, elegant, handsome, functional, efficient. The staff has all those qualities. I've never felt so blissed -- by health, beauty, peace, intelligence, charm, fun.

Excelente ubicación”

Muy bien ubicado frente al lago, las instalaciones son nuevas, buena atención, cerca al centro y ATMs y el desayuno es Ok (frutas, cafe, te, leche, tostadad, mermeladas y mantequilla). Es un poco caro para una cama, pero vale la pena! Amplié mi estadía dos días más.

Vue magnifique dans un hostel festif ”

Nous avions une chambre privée avec vue magnifique sur le lagon. Très bon accueil avec un cocktail gratuit à l’arrivée! Petit déjeuner copieux et de nombreuses activités proposées! Points négatifs : pas d’eau chaude et mauvaise isolation sonore. Ne vous attendez pas à dormir avant 1h du matin.

Preis-Leistung stimmt nicht ganz für ein Doppelzimmer”

Wir waren zu zweit im Hostel und hatten ein Doppelzimmer mit Seeblick. Die Aussicht ist super. Allerdings sind immer Mal wieder abends Partys, die dann ein Schlafen vor Ende der Party unmöglich machen (sehr hellhörig). Wir hatten zunächst eine Nacht für ca. 1.400 Pesos gebucht. Bei Ankunft hatten wir direkt nachgefragt, ob eine Verlängerung um eine Nacht möglich wäre. Die Antwort war: "Das Zimmer ist schon belegt, aber es könnte sein, dass es wieder storniert wird. Der Preis würde wieder bei ca. 1.400 Pesos liegen." Tatsächlich wurde dann am nächsten Tag ein Preis in Höhe von 1.700 Pesos verlangt. Einfach eine Abzocke um nochmal Geld abzugreifen. Das Frühstück ist von 7 bis 10 und grundsätzlich ausreichend (Obst, brot, Marmelade, Cornflakes, Kaffee). Leider ist das Frühstück erst nach halb 9 vollständig aufgebaut und vorher steht nicht alles zur Verfügung. Insgesamt ein Hostel mit guter Lage, welches aber preislich recht teuer ist und anscheinend die Touristen abzocken will.
