The best hostel in cancun :), the most friendliest staff you could find in cancun. I recommend any traveler to stay the night there. Close to alot of great night life places and fine dining restaurant. If you go there you must meet mr.Venezuela or ask for him he will make you feel at home.

Just returned from my second stint at the Hostel Quetzal. I can't speak highly enough for this place for anyone who wants to make friends and have fun in Cancun. If you are after a quiet place to sleep and sip herbal tea then you probably shouldn't be in Cancun anyway. You definitely shouldn't be in Quetzal. But if you're... More

A very relaxed vibe here, casual, young and friendly staff. Hostel is relaxed, not stay if you want a really upmarket and snazzy place - but if you're a backpacker you should love it! Definitely a place to meet people and make friends! Quetzal - you need to reopen the rooftop bar! Maybe include a few cheap cocktails ;) All... More

I walked in on a Wed night after Easter, paid mxn200 for a bed in a mixed dorm. One of staff showed me the room, and let me choose my bed. He told me he'd register, I thought it was a good system. Clean linens and a towel were given for free. WiFi worked great both in common area and... More

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
