Liked: nice place to stay, good clean rooms, if a little dark. Great breakfast and I could see the terrace being a great place to read a book, or have a beer on a sunny day.

Disliked: Food went missing from fridge, not much can be done about that though. It is on a busy street, but the rooms are not noisy. Overall a good place to stay.

Liked: really nice terrace, awesome staff. Really comfortable beds. Great showers and super clean. Highly recommend casa angel, included breakfast is super. Really sweet ladies cook you eggs and there{s also cereal, juice, coffee. good stuff.

Disliked: different prices offered to walkups vs on hostel bookers. basically you make a reservation on hostelbookers while sitting in their lobby and save 30 pesos a night. seems rather silly.

01 December 2012 Juan would recommend this property

Liked: It was nice enough, close enough and ticked all the other boxes but it still felt a bit off. Was very clean though which is a huge plus. Staff were hot and cold as some were way more attentive than others. Ladies beware, one of them is definitely a Romeo and will out the moves in you if you let him. Could be your thing but just putting the word out. Met some great travelers though so would stay again. Rooftop terrace is also wicked. Do the tour which takes you to the limestone waterfalls and bring your swimmers, you won't regret it!

Disliked: Staff were a bit whatever but still ok.

Liked: The sheets were so crisp. Big lockers in the rooms. The bunk beds are wooden & don't creak at every movement also, there is enough space between the top & bottom bunk that whoever is on the bottom doesn't feel smashed. I arrived very late to check-in and reception was very gracious.

Disliked: Nothing, it's a cute place.

Liked: The staff were very nice, helpful, quick to provide whatever was needed (information, beer, mezcal). As a result, guests were nice to each other, as well. Bathroom, bedroom, common room were all clean. Common room had good lighting and good WIFI.

Disliked: Semi-private room (shared bath) was small enough it was really hard to lay out suitcase and get around. Common room needs airing out to clear out frying / food smell. Showers need hooks inside - somewhere to put clothing, towel.
