Mexico Hostels


Mexico Travel Tips & Suggestions

The great thing about Mexico City is that you can get your own hotel room for about 200 pesos (about $20 USD), which is only a little more than the hostels, if you want more privacy. Though I believe most of them are in the Centro Histórico, which tends to die down at night (though that's great if you want to sleep in …
I have been going to Palenque since 1971. Find a comfortable spot and melt into the air.
I spent a summer in Guanajuato two years ago. It's a charming town, take the tram up to see Pipila and enjoy the multi-colored houses from high up. See the creepy mummies and markets, and just relax. While it's not as lively as Mexico City, Guanajuato is still a good place to spend a few days.
if you go to Isla Mujeres, you should try to eat on the restaurants by the beach and eat a shrimp cocktail or ceviche! It's delicious. Go to Caracol and Playa Tiburon -- great views!
Rosarito is a cool safe city with a crazy inexpensive nightlife. I hooked up with people at the hostel and had a blast! I ended up staying a coupleof months!
Morelia is a very nice and safe city in Mexico.
This is an amazing spot! You can relax and have fun! Playa del Carmen is a piece of heaven.
Reading a well-known Autralian guide about Mexico, coming from a visit to the U.S., I was planning to stay only one night in Chihuahua and its only hostel. This was my first time in Mexico, and I was not sure about what I could expect, between great food and sulfurous reputation. I actually found Chihuahua to be a …
Campeche... We are so lucky that we stumbled upon this hidden pot of gold. The walled city is something that should not be missed. This quaint town has a colonial feeling with clean streets, bright colored buildings, a gorgeous town square, art and music. We all agreed this was one of the top highlights of our trip …
Cabo San Lucas is the only place in all of Mexico that I did not enjoy; I think it's because there were too many wealthy, entitled tourists there (the locals were not their usual friendly, festive selves)!
San Miguel de Allende is a great colonial town, unique because of its large artist population, and galleries galore. There is a lot to see right in the city center, and amazing hot springs (La Gruta is very neat - with a cave) just outside. There are a lot of restaurants with very good food (and desserts...), and the …
Acapulco is the original seaside resort city of Mexico. Decades before Cancun became a hot spot, Acapulco was already the sunny playground of the rich and the famous looking to sunbathe. Set on the Pacific coast of Mexico, a mere four-hour drive from Mexico City, Acapulco is very popular with foreign tourists and …
Chetumal is the gateway town on the Mexican side of the Mexican-Belize border. Most people use this as a place to transport from one place to the next, as there are not very many attractions in Chetumal itself. The major things to do there are the botanical gardens and the manatee sanctuary. They also have a local …
Ensenada is the perfect city for tourists. It’s a combination of local culture and excellent shopping! Start your visit to an Ensenada hostel by seeing the beautiful Pacific Ocean. In addition to swimming and lying out on the beach, there are a variety of water-related activities. You can choose to go snorkeling, …
Puerto Escondido is home to world-class surfing and most people who venture here are out to catch a good wave or to learn to surf. The surf lessons and board hire are reasonably inexpensive but if you are going to stay here for a couple of weeks, it may well be worth your while purchasing your own board if this is your …
San Cristóbal de las Casas, usually shortened to San Cristóbal, is one of the most popular destinations in the state of Chiapas, Mexico. Colonial architecture and a leafy zócalo give it a distinctly Spanish feel, yet much of the population and many of the most interesting surrounding sites are Mayan. Add in a healthy …
Famous as a spring-break destination and for the great influx of American tourists wanting a taste of the Caribbean lifestyle, Cancún is much more than the all-inclusive-resort paradise it's famous for being! The city is informally divided into two different areas. The first one is downtown, where the locals live and …
Mazunte is a small, beach town located on the pacific coast of Mexico in Oaxaca state. Mazunte is a great place to get away from it all. It offers amazing beach with rocky shore views, white sand, delicious restaurants, and inexpensive beachfront cabanas. It's the perfect place to read a book, cool off in the ocea, or …
Palenque is an almost compulsory stop for travelers visiting the state of Chiapas in Mexico. Better known for its extensive Mayan archeological site ("las ruinas"), Palenque is also a place for backpackers with a love of nature and simple living to rest, recharge energies, and, in the process, reconnect with the …
Oaxaca de Juárez is a relatively small city for Mexican standards, but it has a lot of activity going on!  Although most travelers get to Oaxaca by bus on their way from other Mexican cities, you can also travel here by plane. The local airport connects the city mostly to Mexico City, the so-called "DF" ("Distrito …
