A hostel for migrants from poorer regions south moving northwards towards the U.S., and definitely not a place for those seeking a few hours of privacy with a prostitute. Ask if they will let in a backpacking tourist.
The major hotel in the centre of the Zona Norte, it has rooms that are relatively safe and clean, and many of the women who work in the Zona Norte rent rooms here by the week or by the month.
Can Sleep (if possible with all the noise from Ave Coahuila), Play cards with the desk clerk ($10 a hand) or chat (or other things) with Carla from Acalpulco all night.
A Tijuana institution since 1963, this place serves only one thing: deep-fried chicken neck tacos. Comes with unlimited tortillas and salsa.
Grilled meats in various forms, including tacos, ''torta'' sandwiches, quesadillas, and traditional steaks. Most meals include salad bar.
Rooms are "Holiday Inn" quality and quite comfortable for the area, most include kitchens.
Off Coahuila on Mutualismo #450. $15-$25 a night.
Similar to Cascadas 2000 but a bit cheaper.
