We walked into this hostel while searching for a new place to stay in Morelia (our original hostel was not great for a number of reasons but that's a different review). Initially we were very impressed by the friendliness of the owners and how helpful they were as soon as we walked in. The hostel inside is a beautiful old...

The owners and there dog were very nice and friendly. The hostel is clean and new. The rooms are a bit dark and I can't remember if there are lockers in the room. But it is a nice low key place a short walk from the center. Go to Morelia it is safe and great!

Good location, near cathedral and aqueduct. Safe area near several fancy hotels with security cops. Wonderful hosts. Dormitories have high ceiling and are clean. Wifi is great, there's a pleasant lounging area with big flat screen TV and colorful cushions on floor where guests can hangout and chat. Very hot water with good water pressure.
