Hostal Maria Bonita
Hostel owned by 'lady boss' backpacker
My travel buddy and I stayed in the dorm (8 beds) two nights in Nov. 2008. Breakfast was bread, ham, cheese, cookies, pastry, coffee, fruits, and even yogurt. Genuine hospitality as evidenced by the morning spread described above, and also the easy going nature of the guy in charge.
Unique Quality: Maria Bonita Hostal, a real nice clean hostel on #24, Maria Adelina Flores (street). Cost 70-80 pesos per dorm bed and breakfast is included. They have a private room too but I forget the price. This hostel is just behind the Don Quijote Hotel and only a few blocks from the plaza, so is in a really great location.
The owner is a young lady who apparently traveled extensively....lots of pics of her on the wall in the dining room. You may have to ring the bell located high up beside the garage-type door since it is sometimes locked. Peer into the mail slot if you have to.
Directions: This hostel is just behind the Don Quijote Hotel so if you need directions just google the well known hotel.
