Ok, so the free tequila shots and included dinners is what attracted me to booking Hostel Quetzal (you need to do what you can to save a bit of money here and there when traveling for weeks on end), but it was so much more! Yeah, it's a party hostel. But you're not forced to party and I was actually... More

Very friendly staff, great activities (though a bit pricey, but hey, it's Cancun). We had a lot of luggage but it was no problem for them. All our stuff was safe and watched over. At check out, we had to wait a few hours for our lift to arrive and the staff let us hang out in the living room... More

This is an awesome hostel to stay in if you want to party in Cancun. They organise the nights out and everyone has pre drinks together. Everyone has dinner together so you get to meet everyone and the hostel workers make sure everyone is introduced. There is a bar and a tab system and you just pay at the end... More

Stayed here in a group of 5 girls for 4 nights, we had a great time on two of them ;). The hostels trip to coco bongos was great, seems expensive but is really worth it. Having dinner altogether was great fun and a great way to meet people but you have to be up for joining in with the... More

What an amazing hostel - with group dinners and breakfasts included, nightly introductions to new people, free shots, the loveliest of staff and managers, this is one of the best hostels I've been in, in 10 months of traveling! Also in such a great area of Cancun, so you can see real Mexico away from the clubs/beach/hotel district! Loved it,... More

Where to begin - so welcoming and a big effort is made by the staff to get people socialising. I loved how everyone eats dinner together (which is included and is so tasty). Breakfast was great too. Very clean and staff are helpful with anything you want to know.

Hands down one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. The managers, Vanessa and Alex deserve so much credit for the warm & welcoming environment they have created. I honestly felt like part of the family. The hostel is very social, everyone gathers for dinner at around 8pm every night and afterwards there are lots of fun drinking... More

A good hostel to start our travels round central america. Very accomodating and helpful staff. Organised trips out to clubs- guests all go out as a big group which is nice. Breakfast and dinner included- dinner is all served at the same time and everyone sits round the table together, so is very sociable. You are made to do a... More
