Not too far from the zocolo. Close to the malecon.
This was the worst hostel I've stayed in during four months in Mexico. When I arrived, the person at the front desk had to pick a bunch of trash off of my bed! And then it was "cleaned" by someone wiping a dirty rag over it to remove some of the sand and various other small debris still on the mattress. The mattress itself had no cover or protector on it, and the sheets (you have to make your own bed) were threadbare - I'm not exaggerating. Absolutely disgusting. Thankfully I had a sleeping bag liner I could use. The facilities are abysmal. The 10 bed dorm room is TINY. The furniture on the rooftop is a bunch of broken down old wood pieces. The bathrooms are so small you can barely sit down. The WiFi doesn't work very well. The vibe here is also very strange. No one talks to each other. But there were people making noise in the dorm room until late (the person in the bunk bed above me was SINGING!) and then people started leaving very early. I barely got any sleep.
This is a basic, clean and confortable accommodation in a quiet street of Veracruz and walking distance to the beach and historic centre. The breakfast is toast, jam, cereal or pancakes and coffee. The owners are very friendly and helpful.
The 8 bed dorm gets very busy when more than 5 people stay in the room. The bathroom.and shower are in the room which is convenient but allows no privacy whatsoever.
Staff were absolutly amazing! Amazingly helpful, found the hostel very social and a great atmosphere.
10 bed dorm was a little cramped and dark
The welcome was amazing and a great relief to be let in at 13.00 after a day of walking with my backpacks. I was shown everything I needed and as a bonus met a new friend in my dorm with whom I have continued speaking as we have gone our separate ways. The shower was easy to use and the beds were well kept with a great area to store my junk! I was also alerted personally of my taxi arriving on my day of departure which was very handy.
I would have appreciated the ability to have brought some food back into the dorms so I didn't have to buy something from a vendor. Also a table in the dorm would have been nice to sit down at to socialize with other traveller's.
The amenities and the distance to eeverything I wanted to see in Veracruz.
Towels even though they are free they could be a full size towel instead of a hand towel. I am willing to rent a full size towel.
With a stay at Oyster Hostel in Veracruz (Malecon), you'll be within a 5-minute drive of Veracruz Cathedral and Veracruz Aquarium. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk and luggage storage. A roundtrip airport shuttle is available for a surcharge.
