I was a little bit unhappy that I couldn't pick up stuff from my room during the day, because the hostel is closed from 11am to 5pm. As I was staying over a week, that made it difficult for me.

The staff and accommodations were great, but it would be nice not to be locked out from 11-5 everyday. Some older looking bread and pastries were on a shelf if you wanted to try it. But I thought the continental breakfast Monterrey HI provided was so nice, they put a whole spread down and they make pancakes, it would be nice if Santa Cruz did the same.
