Great hotel, close to borderWe usually get a hotel close to the border when we just want to go out for a night in Tijuana. This is the perfect spot. It's easy to get to and very close.

I stayed during Comic Con, which meant that every hostel in the city was completely booked up. This wasn't my first choice but it was fine for only staying one night.

Modest clean place to stay at low price. Very clean hardwood floors. Clean bathrooms, Nice bunkbeds. The best part about this place is the people and staff. You meet great people and the star is hard working. The staff here are some of the best people I have met. If your on a budget, this is your place!!!!
