HI - Jalapa - De La Niebla Hostel Reviews

HI - Jalapa - De La Niebla Hostel is a quiet place with an excellent location in the center of Xalapa. Installations are clean, airy, and well ventilated, and the atmosphere is cheerful, with plenty of students from nearby towns that stay during the week, so it makes a good place to stay while visiting the city.

The Location

The hostel is located on the main avenue in the heart of the downtown historic centre of Xalapa. The Cathedral-Central Park Zone is on the same street, two-and-a-half blocks away (so it's extremely easy to walk there). The area has many small super marts open at all hours, where the ingredients to prepare a meal can be purchased, along with simple fast food and drinks. Nearby are a few coffee shops where the locals get together during the day. There are also several cafs close by with excellent coffee, live music on the weekends, and high-speed Wi-Fi available. Buses leaving for Xico and Coatepec, two nearby small towns that are definitely worth visiting and that offer excellent typical food and local coffee, leave from a market at Parque Revolution, at a brisk fifteen-minute walk from the hostel.

The building is a large, three-floor building. The main floor holds the reception, a storage area, and a small sitting area in the lobby with a picture window to the street. Rooms, dorms, and shared bathrooms and common areas are found on the second floor, and the third floor is basically private rooms and bathrooms. The whole building is impeccably clean at all times. The hostel feels more like a small hotel than a backpacker hostel, but offers all the necessary amenities for a good stay.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Rooms are spacious and dorms are set up with double bunks. The rooms are well lit and also well ventilated. Mattresses are good and the beds have a night light and a plugin for electronics. Dorms also have a wash basin with a mirror tucked into one of the corners. The lockers are large and can hold an entire backpack.

The main shared bathrooms are located on the second floor and are spotlessly clean, and are normally cleaned a few times a day. Shower stalls have great pressure and plenty of hot water, with a small dressing area to leave your clothes and hang a few things.

Common Spaces

The common spaces include a downstairs small sitting area next to the reception. If youre going on a small side trip, there is a storage area to leave store things until you return. There's a computer with internet on the second floor. The patio between the rooms and the kitchen is a large and very agreeable spot where you can rest and chill. Part of it is covered, and there are a few tables where you can sit. The kitchen is completely furnished with a fridge to store leftovers or food items. The included breakfast (the offerings vary, but will include something like fruit juice, yogurt, bread, cereal, and coffee) is served in the spacious dining area, which also doubles as a common area to gather round and a TV room to watch a movie. Plenty of tables allow groups to get together comfortably. The hostel also offers a well-priced, same-day laundry service.


Though very close to the Atlantic Coast, because of its elevation, weather in Xalapa can be chilly and rainy, so its a good idea to take warm clothing. Xalapa City is the capital of the State of Veracruz, a large Mexican state with a wide diversity of sceneries, climates, vegetation, and cultural life that's divided into seven gastronomical regions, so there is a great diversity of food to discover, and it is amazing and outstanding. If youre a coffee lover, the state is one of the main producers in the country and a large part of its coffee is a high-quality export grade.

Very clean, comfortable, and friendly

This is a perfect place to stay and chill out if you're not looking for a party hostel. The kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, linens, towels, and common areas are all spotless. The staff are very friendly and are always happy to help you out with any questions you might have. A quiet place so you are guaranteed to get a great night's sleep. The hostel is a 5 minute walk to Parque Juarez (centro) and all the major amenities (banks, supermarkets, library, stores, markets). I will definitely return back here again.


Great hostel, really well designed

This hostel is the cleanest one in the whole country, or at least among the many where I have stayed, the building is big, nice and perfectly designed to be a hostel. Dorms aren't too spacious but they have everything you need and (very strange for Mexico) everything is in perfect condition. There are open spaces everywhere and common areas are big and nice. When I was there it was low season and the hostel was almost empty so I don't know how lively it gets when busy, but I don't think it is a party hostel. One strange thing that I didn't like is that they rent the kitchen/dining to an evangelist group on Sundays from noon til two or three hours later I think. They are kind of noisy and, well, out of place there, but still if I go back to Xalapa I will stay here again.



This completely new hostel is located within easy reach to Xalapa's city centre. The building is a blend of colonial and contemporary Mexican architecture. There are clean and comfortable rooms for guests. Services provided include 24 hours reception, internet access and car parking. Fully equipade kitchen,dinnig room, TV room, in-room lockers and vending machines. The very friendly staff can provide tourist information,tours and you can come and go as you please as there is no curfew in operation. Come and visit us - it will be one of the best experiences that you can have in Mexico!the flower´s city (XALAPA)located very close to atractives places: jalcomulco (RAFFTING)(EXTREM SPORT),coatepec,(COFFE CITY ) near cathedral,museums(ANTROPOLOGY)( HOME SANTA ANNA.
