This hostel was extremely disappointing. I booked a bed in the 5 bedroom female door several months in advance and after arriving at the hostel around 9pm after a long flight the front desk informed me that they had made a mistake. Apparently the dorm room I had booked was completely full and the only bed available was in a... More

I had a good stay here on a recent visit. Rooms were comfortable and the garden area was nice. Some staff are backpackers themselves so they get involved in the action with guests. Dineer is included and the throw a shot of tequila in for good measure. There was a great crowd there during my stay so I had plenty... More

Best party hostel! Stayed here with my girlfriend for almost a week and loved every minute. The atmosphere is great, the staff really try to make everyone happy and even give you free breakfast, dinner and tequila every dinner time. Its very close to the ADO buses which can take you straight into hotel zone. Also, the hostel plan everyones... More

We stayed for 2 nights and are definitely not coming back. The staff were either indifferent or two much, one of the guys in the staff kept coming into the girls dorm and walked passed the windows on the roof.. So weird - however he did seem high all the time. People, including some of the staff openly did cocaine... More

Absolutely love this place!! Very friendly people and definitely live up to a party hostel. Great way to meet people and organise your night out as staff take groups out nightly. Couldn't comment on breakfast as I was always asleep, but dinner was delicious and a great way to meet people from the hostel as everyone eats together and takes... More

We had a late flight into Cancun and needed a place to stay for the night. I found this hostel online and booked it. The staff are really great and the environment is all about fun and drinking. They are located in a nice spot. Very close to open markets for shopping and eating. The ADO bus terminal is less... More

Definitely the most lively hostel I've stayed at! They give you dinner and breakfast each day and they are awesome meals, prepared by the cutest chef in the world. All of the staff are so lovely! The cleaners do a great job also! It's super fun there are always people drinking and up for a good time! Plus you get... More

Came here 1 yr ago, it was great. Colourful happy fun place with a great manager who got everyone in a party mood and made your stay a memorable one. Came back this year, the lovely Manager was no longer there,the place had radically changed and was run down. Tired, unkept. Mattresses were sunk, even some had holes in them!!... More

Location is convenient and the food is great, when available. Breakfast time is supose to start at 7am, but we were told it would only be ready at 8:30am. We had early plans so that was disapointing. There are no rules at this Hostel (lots of noise and drunken people partying), except for the drinking game rules which is imposed... More

The hostel's really beautiful with lots of colors and characteristics plus a nice garden. I wasn't expecting a lot since I've read lots of negative reviews on tripadvisor. But surprisingly it was okay. clean enough, properly served breakfast and diner were even better than some foods I had in restaurants. It wasn't exactly a party hostel when I stayed there,... More
