    My stay was wonderful. The hostel is very comfortable. The kitchen facilities are the best to save some money. Is perfectly located to go to the boardwalk and main tourist strip. The only thing is the shower pressure is really bad but Ensenada as most of Baja California has water issues unfortunately.

    This was the beginning of my first ever trip to Mexico. The staff were very helpful, even calling a cab for me on the morning I left.

    I would stay here again if I was in Ensenada. The people that run the hostel are lovely.

    I really enjoyed Ensenada. It is quite charming. Small. It has all you need but still feels like a small town.

    I left Tijuana at noon on friday from the main Bus Station (Central Camionera). There are 2 bus lines that leave Tijuana for Ensenada. They pretty much have departures every hour. The price was 185 pesos. It takes 2 hours to get …

We had a beautiful swim and then went to the motel restaurant, it was lovely, overlooking the beach. Candles and a relaxing ...

    Spicy Salsa Meets Sore Throat

    ... like that's kinda sad. Other nationalities onboard are fluent in at least two languages and many know three or four!

    We sat in a little park on a bench under a tree and ate our tacos while being impaled by the tree’s needles that flew off in the wind. My throat was on fire after getting the salsa from the taco truck! Note to self for next time—mention "sin salsa" (without salsa!). Doesn’t help that I’m catching ...

Apart from a couple of “Leaning Tower of Pisa” long drops that was it. No water, so one had to bring in one’s own supply as we do. We carry drinking water in our 35l ...

    As we headed for our last Mexican moments we were most amused by the bus film chosen - it was about an illegal crossing from Mexico to the USA... With our current level of Spinglish we could understand enough of it to enjoy watching what turned out to be an excellent movie :-)

    Our morning arrival was in magnificent sunshine so we decided to walk rather than taking a taxi. We came to a roadside juice-bar so stopped for a delicious drink. While we were there a local lady, obviously ...
