Description

Awesome youth hostal a few blocs away from historical center. They have rooms and dormitories but also a nice closed garden for tents and small rigs. My 25" is the longest that would fit. Any vehicle under this size would be fine. No hook-ups, but nice hammocks by a small pool, shared kitchen and bathrooms and super warm welcoming. All of this for 100 pesos/pers/night (regardless the size of your rig). Great deal to visit Merida. Highly recommended :)

Small camping area in the backyard of this cosy youth hostel.
Nicely located a few blocks away from the city center ; also, you can rent bikes which makes visit to the center even easier. Price is 125 MXN p.p. ( kids under 5 don’t pay) , breakfast included ( basic but still nice) for dry camping ; additional 50MXN per night if you want power. ( no dump possible )
Nice little swimming pool which is a indispensable to cool down as Merida is so hot right now.
Biggest concern for us; the bugs! We never had to deal with so many mosquitos so far in all Mexico.. days and nights… even with our mosquitos nets! this made our stay quite harsh…

Price have increased, now it's 125pesos per person, because of the breakfast included! If you came with a van, you pay this amout, but, you can't use toilets, shower and kitchen! You are paying just to stay in a garden at the end! Our friend had a tent, and she pays the same amout, but she can use toilets and shower!
For us with a vehicle, it's really paying for nothing! We won't come here,and yes, it is full of mosquitos!
Breakfast it's very simple coffe, toasted bread, fruits cereals, yogurt,starts from 8.30 and finish at 10.30

It's not for big rigs. We are 3.5m high, 2.2m wide, 6.20m long but he didn't let us in.

We honestly can’t think of a better place to park while visiting Merida. Safe parking inside the hostel compound. Great WiFi inside the hostal, small swimming pool, and friend out staff.

The La Emerita neighborhood is also the oldest neighborhood in the city and very pleasant to walk around at night. Great night food nearby.

As described- still 100Pesos p.p incl.breakfast; we stayed 4 nights in our little pickup camper and felt safe; good walking distance into town; during our stay the shower doesn't work very well- no hot and very poor water at all; staff was very friendly; lots of little biting bugs and mosquitoes!

Still $100p/pp to camp in the garden. Our dog was allowed "in the garden area only", but hung out by the pool with us and the staff and others didn't complain. The pool was a nice thing to have, still hot and a few mosquitoes when we visited. Breakfast still included, with the use of the bathrooms and shower. Nice place.

We stayed there this week - very helpful staff and as described by others pretty much but, at least in mid October there were no mosquitos at all ( we were expecting lots ) which was nice. Also, there is a power outlet on the rear wall that we were able to use ( but needed a long extension cord ). Good value for 100pesos each !

What a wonderful place. We could park our Van (with rooftop-tents) in the beautyful garden and could use the facilities (kitchen, pool, bathrooms) and had breakfast for a really fair price. Wonderful people there. All infrastructure arround. We stayed for one week.

As described before. No problem entering with our 22“ motorhome. You are allowed to bring your dog if well behaved and quiet.

As written earlier, awesome spot with prime location and even breakfast included :)
BUT: In our 6months of traveling we haven't had such a mosquito Invasion yet - they were literely eating us!! Maybe only at this time of the year but we would not stay there again only because of this reason!

Excellent place, very friendly and great facilities. Best location we found near to Mérida centre. No height barrier. Bit narrow access, but we are 2.2m wide and had no problem. Only the very biggest rigs might have a problem. 100pesos per person per night including breakfast. Only downside is that it's a bit buggy in the camping/garden area. Take good repellent.

Spent a week parked at this hostel, sleeping in our van. Not really much in the neighborhood in terms of restaurants or sites but as previously said, Uber to main square is cheap. Breakfast is decent, bathroom kept reasonably clean, friendly staff and cats.

Such a nice place, one of the best vibes in this trip. Owners and staff do their best to make you feel at home. The coffee the sell is awesome. Small patio so perhaps you want to call in advance!

We are usually avoiding hostels if we can, but this one was nice - big grassy leveled parking, small pool, workable wifi (good enough for skype call), nice clean bathroom with hot shower and above average breakfast. For 100pp, quite a good deal.
Lots of things going on in the city, check with the reception or guidebook. We went to see serenata (traditional music and some folklore dance) - they've been going on every Thursday for the past 50+- years. Very nice experience, and for free. More events like this are every week, from Thursday to Monday.
Top tip - if you tired of walking, uber ride to/from town is only about 25-35 pesos.

As previous comment. Same price for a RV 22 ft with breakfast. Wifi available. Very nice and quiet place.

Awesome place to park your rig in Mérida for a good price; 100 pesos per person for the night with hot showers, good wifi, pool (small), continental breakfast! Normally I hate cities but this makes them bearable.
