Amazing hostel with a such good atmosphere and vibes. Very pretty common areas with the swimming pool and hammocks. It also very well constructed to meet people with the bar and the pool table. The owners and volunteers are very kind and there are here all the time to help you, meet you etc. I especially recommend if you want... More

Stayed at tower bridge for 5 nights when we initially planned for 2. This place had such a warm, friendly, family vibe from the minute we walked in. I wasn't feeling well for a couple of the days and the staff where incredibly helpful- finding and calling a local doctor for me and genuinely making me feel cared for. There... More

The atmosphere and the staff are pretty cool but the location is its downfall. In town and a decent walk to any beaches. The place could do with a decent clean. Don't bother with brekky. Mattresses need replacing. I guess it's good value for money because it's dirt cheap..

Well, they obviously got one of the best place I've been (talking about hostel) in Mexico, plenty of colors, super nice swimming pool, well decorated and chill bar, but unfortunately that's only the place... Not really well located, far from the city center and beaches, Okay it's 100pesos for a dorm which is correct but you should pay 40pesos for... More

We always take comments of our guests serious, so let me answer to this. We keep prices unbelievably low. The breakfast for 40 pesos includes hot drinks, juice, milk, fresh fruits, vegetables, toast, boiled eggs, cereals, jam. Our clients usually appreciate this very much and are happy with the offer. Others prefer to sleep late and skip breakfast, so we... More

I loved this place! I travelled on my own and this was the first hostel experience on my trip. I had been worried not making any friends and this hostel was just the perfect spot to hit. They have lots of long time volunteers working which makes it easy to get in to their little group of friends. Everyone just... More

Really enjoyed my stay at Tower bridge, and met some great people. The owners are lovely and make the effort to get to know all the guests personally, which is really rare in the backpacker world, and the whole place has a really chilled out vibe. It's has a really relaxed feel unlike most hostels, and feels quite similar to... More

I get the feeling that under former management, that this place was a bit of dump. Now it is one of the best hostels I've stayed at: it's clean, secure (I needed to unlock two padlocks to get to my room), and the clientele are fun but without behaving like a frat party. There are so many people working and... More
