It's a sewage infested, filthy, junk yard
The new alleged Management, has placed false advertising all over the internet about this cesspool of a place. They advertise a swimming pool, which has been cracked and empty for eight years, they advertise internet, which they dont have because they did not pay the bill, and now the cable company wont do business with them and neither will the wireless provider in rosarito because they know they wont get paid. This places reputation in the town is crap on all levels. They advertise a bbq pit, it is really a trash can with a metal fridge shelf to cook on. They say hammocks, there are not even chairs, full kitchen where you can cook, not a chance, it is a roach infested room with a two-burner gas hot plate that only one burner works on. There is one pot and one pan, usually dirty in the sink with roaches on them. Bring your own, dish soap, sponge and toilet paper, they say they provide it but never have. The bathroom is horrible, it was never cleaned, had raw sewage backing up three inches deep through a drain in the floor right in front of he toilet and also in the shower. But besides the place is full of crazy homeless whackos who stay there long term so just so you know, I would say lock your doors, but you cant, the locks dont work. Hell the windows dont even have a lock on there and there are no sticks to keep the window from opening. So your things will never be safe when you go to the beach. But what you really need to know is that the federal police have taken over the hotel right behind the hostel, putting he hostel directly in the line of fire between the drug dealers on the road and the cops in the hotel. If you want to get in the middle of the drug war, then yea, stay at the alamo hotel. This is only a fraction of the problems with this place, but please do yourself a favor, you would be better off in a tent on the beach.
