My experience at My Sister’s House Sayulita

For my trip to Sayulita, I was looking for a hotel with parking since I arrived from Guadalajara by car.

I also wanted to make sure it was not noisy (there were many comments mentioning noise for other hotels on the Booking page!), and that it was a cheap hotel in Sayulita, as the average prices were a bit high for my budget.

Of the few finalists, I chose My Sister’s House because I was curious to see what a women-only hotel was like. In fact, I did not even know it existed.

The private and shared rooms

I booked a room with a king size bed (Deluxe King Studio). There were only two private rooms and they were accessed via the rooftop.

Mine faced the street, so I was worried it would be noisy, but it wasn’t at all.

The room is fairly simple, but nice, with a comfortable king bed, a space to hang clothes and another space to put luggage.

There was a fan and air conditioning, but most of the time opening the windows and turning on the fan was enough.

The bathroom was basic but clean and the shower was good (hot water, good pressure).

There was liquid soap and towels, but no shampoo, so you had to bring your own or buy some.

My Sister’s House is one of the best cheap hotels in Sayulita because it offers rooms with private bathrooms as well as dormitories:

There are three types of dorms, with lockers, air conditioning and shared bathroom:

-A dormitory with four single beds

-A dormitory with eight single beds

-A dormitory with two queen size beds (bunk beds)

You can book your bed in a dormitory by clicking here:

The Common Areas

As soon as you walk through the front door and up the stairs, you reach the first terrace, with a sofa, tables, and a counter with swings. This is where you can read or enjoy the wifi.

There is an open kitchen, small but well equipped (mini oven, stove, small fridge, dishes, etc). There is no breakfast in the morning, but there is coffee.

As you go up the stairs, you reach the rooftop terrace. This is where you access the two private rooms and where the yoga and meditation sessions take place.

The parking lot

The hotel’s Booking page did not indicate that they had parking, but I called them directly and they confirmed that there was one nearby.

In fact, there were two guarded parking lots right in front of the hotel.

I personally took the one on the right (it seemed more serious- don’t be impressed by the two chickens and rooster running free😆): 150 pesos for the day, and 100 pesos for the night.

My advice:

-For security, the parking lot closes at night, so I suggest you write down the hours and the guardian’s phone number (he suggests it himself) if you plan to leave early in the morning. Otherwise, you will have to wait for it to open, around 10 am.

-I really recommend leaving your car in the parking lot as much as possible, as finding a space is complicated in Sayulita and the streets are not in very good condition.

What is a Women-Only Hostel?

Of course, I had already seen women-only dorms, but I did not know there were also women-only hostels.

My Sister’s House is a safe space for women of all ages, especially solo female travelers.

The front door stays open from 9am to 6pm, then you have to enter a code they give you on the hotel’s Whatsapp group, which you are invited to join when you arrive.

The purpose of this group is to ask questions, receive messages about activities, and never feel completely alone. Frankly, it is a good idea.

In fact, some female travelers stay here for a few weeks or even a month. There were also two volunteers, one from Germany and one from Argentina.

Apart from the daily yoga on the terrace, they offer many activities: on Tuesday, the sunset at Playa Carricitos; on Wednesday, pizza and wine night; on Thursday, surf trip; and so on.

Also worth knowing

  • You can use washer and dryer for 50 pesos
  • You can rent a surfboard with soft foam for beginners (free) or a professional surfboard (extra cost). There is also a surf school on the first floor of the hostel that offers rentals, courses, surf camps, etc.
  • Technically there is a wifi network for the upper floor and another one for the lower floor. The wifi works fine on the downstairs terrace, but it was losing signal in the room.
  • My morning coffee is sacred to me and if you are an early riser like me, the hostel coffee will not be ready on time. Luckily, Yah Yah Café has just opened a branch right across the street from the hotel. It opens from 7am, and in addition to good coffee, they have delicious and big bowls of fruit.

My opinion about the Sister’s House Hotel

I liked this hostel in Sayulita mainly because of its strategic location.

Since I didn’t know Sayulita, I was unsure if it was well located, but after exploring it extensively, I can confirm that it was the right place for me.

There are two parking lots, a “Super Kiosko” (which is like an Oxxo for those in the know) and a pharmacy almost across the street.

The main square, bars and restaurants were a 5-minute walk away, but without the noise.

The atmosphere was very relaxed, it was not the hostel where you came to party but there were many options around.
