Hostel La Candelaria Reviews

Hostel La Candelaria is a perfect, little, colourful hostel, right by one of the nicest areas of Valladolid.

The Location

As it's located just a couple of blocks away from the bus terminal and the main square, you are right in the perfect spot to explore everything that this beautiful town has to offer. You have all of the main shops, markets, restaurants, and supermarkets nearby, and the square out front is lovely. Valladolid is small enough to enjoy on foot, but you can also hire bikes and you can ride to the nearby cenotes to escape the intense heat of the city.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The hostel is in an old house and the dorm rooms are spacious and have plenty of room and lockers large enough for people to store their bags. They are clean and some have air conditioning; those that do not have fans, which do suffice even in the heat. The bathrooms are sort of scattered around the hostel, with one inside, then a few more outside, and then some more at the back of the garden. The bathrooms are large and spacious, but can get a little flooded when showering, but not to worry -- every one has a mop to help out the next guest.

Common Spaces

This hostel has a ton of common areas sort of just scattered around the place. There are little lounge rooms on every floor, and they only have the Wi-Fi working in the common areas to encourage people to interact. There is a small lounge upstairs with a little patio overlooking the square and another one downstairs by reception. They have a fully stocked, large outdoor kitchen for guests to use and where they whip up the delicious free breakfast in the morning. You also have a nice, outdoor garden area as well as a sort of terrace on the upstairs level with plenty of seating for the whole hostel -- just be prepared for the local mosquitoes. They also provide you with free drinking water. Reception is twenty-four hours and you are provided wristbands to show upon entry, so safety is no problem.


This is the perfect little hostel with a real homey feel, with a ton of space for the amount of guests they can accommodate and a delicious free breakfast in their garden every morning.

Valladolid is a small and calm Mayan and colonial city of 70.000 inhabitants. It is located in the north centre of the Yucatan Peninsula, only 30 minutes away from the monumental Mayan ruins of Chich�n Itz�.. It is a good base to rest after visiting the Mayan zone and its authentic cultural expressions. Valladolid and the region around it have some of the deepest and most spectacular natural wells (cenotes) of the Yucatan Peninsula.

An old, large colonial house, is located in Parque La Candelaria, 3 blocks from the bus-station and 2.5 blocks from the Central Park.

In a safe and familiar atmosphere, it is the home that you need to enjoy your vacations calmly. The staff are the owners. The inner patio, with its natural garden and exotic trees, offers a great space for you to cook, eat and have a siesta in the hammocks, next to the birds song.

We provide dormitories and private rooms, a completely equipped kitchen, cable- television, board games, bicycles for rent, uo-to-date tourist information and of course the colonial Parque La Candelaria just in front of the hostel.
