The bright colors and helpful staff were definite pluses at this hostel.
The limited range of the wifi signal, and the uneven steps to the second floor were negatives.
The hostel is in an old masonry building that has been adapted for its current use. Like many buildings in Mexico, compromises have been made when renovating. The staircase near the front door to the 2nd floor dorms is narrow, with steps that reminded me of climbing the nearby pyramids (i.e., too high for comfort). At the top, you either go straight to the dorm or take a right to a small common room, but if you want to go from the dorm area to the common area, on the same level, you actually have to step down and then back up.
In the back of the building, getting to the shower/toilet or to the back staircase required a couple of steps up to an area with a private room, and then another step up to the shower/toilet. The back staircase is well built, but it has a 180 turn at the bottom with just a couple of steps to go.
The air conditioning in the women's dorm was turned on by staff at night, but didn't really work all that well.
The location is great, on a shady plaza a few blocks from the main plaza.More
