La Casa del Tio Dach may be advertised as a hostel and a bed and breakfast, but it’s really an exquisitely restored historic house filled with artwork and antiques that just happens to welcome guests. The house was built in 1890 by the Paz Ferraez brothers, who were well-known grocers in Merida, capital the State of Yucatan in Mexico. When the last of the original brothers passed on, the property was handed down to nephews who decided to restore the home to its former glory and convert it to a bed and breakfast.
Named in honor of one of the uncles who built the home, La Casa del Tio Dach has five rooms that offer configurations ranging from two and four beds to an eight bed dorm. Each of the sparkling clean rooms has an ensuite bathroom and is furnished with modern, quality furniture and upscale linens. The $120 peso per night rate (less than $10 USD) includes towels, in-room wireless Internet, fan, 24-hour hot water and reception, as well as a delicious continental breakfast of fresh fruit, pound cake, and coffee.
