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

Super fun place to stay! I only stayed for 2 nights but if you have to be in Cancun... I think this place is great. I was traveling alone and made a lot of really great friends here who were also traveling alone! They make it extremely easy to socialize by having "family dinners" (which are actually really good!) and... More

This is definitely a party hostel - in keeping with the rest of Cancun. Room was clean enough, showers were meant to be hot but unfortunately we're not our entire stay despite telling staff. It had a good social vibe and was easy to meet people - who we have kept bumping into on our travels! Be careful with the... More

Positives Good location Good breakfast Social layout making it east to meet people Negatives There are a lot of drugs circulating at this hostel, to the extent that I didn't feel safe staying there as both staff and guests were popping pills.
