Lonely Planet review
A great location in a beautiful old colonial building make this hostel unique. It has firm beds and a big buffet breakfast. The service can be a bit gruff, though, and you may have problems getting hot water.
Our independent authors have visited Hostel Zocalo and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Mérida.
