Liked: The location was convenient.

Disliked: The bathroom was small, and it was always leaking water. The shared area was not very enticing, and unfortunately we did not realize it was more of a Mexican hostel rather than a travelers hostel. It felt very poor quality with people sleeping in the corridor on the couch. The door is closed at night.
