My stay here was really disappointing especially after staying in an awesome hostel in Playa Del Carmen. The bar has very limited options, very limited opportunities for ice breakers and all. The air conditioners don't work, there were hardly any charging points, just 2 in one room where 6 people are staying. I had booked for 5 days here but... More

We lived here in jan 2016 and really liked it. Nice staff and a good atmosphere. They Saved us food since we arrived late and where helpful with everything. When we lived there it was bad whether so we hung out at the hostel a lot, and think its safe to say that we recommend this place! Ok showers, ok... More

A party hostel is exactly what this is, the staff every night are always up for a party and are very friendly! Our bathroom looked like it could have some work done to it, it didn't have loo roll in it a fare few times. The rooms aren't very private as people seemed to use ours just for the toilet... More

Staff were really friendly and helpful, place is really cool and our double room was exactly what we needed! Air con worked great, good bathroom, and if you're a couple you can just push the beds together... Breakfast wasn't bad but wasn't amazing - a quesadilla and a sweet bread...Thanks guys... Oh and whatever you do if you are staying... More

This is exactly as advertised. It's 150 for a dorm(in November) which is about as cheap as you get in cancun. The facilities are not great. There is a hot water shower but 1 of the 2 showers has no pressure at all. There is free Wi-Fi but it's pretty ropey and prone to disconnect. There is free breakfast which... More

We stayed here in a double room on the top floor and it was fantastic! We had our own bathroom, air conditioning and private balcony. Awesome breakfast included! The owner and staff of the hostel are lovely and willing to help out with anything you need. Dinner was included, basic, but not bad at all. There is a party vibe... More

I loved the atmosphere in the hostel, the hello kitty dorm was well worth any extra cost as its smaller than the main form and has a separate bathroom. I had a good time at the hostel and we went to a karaoke bar in the evening after a shared dinner which was a nice way to meet all the... More

The staff was good! It's a party hostel, and I dident like that. But if you like that kind of places you will like this to. But it was alright for 2 nights. Safety box, check. Kitchen, check. It's close to the ADO bus station, walking distance. You can book the excursions on the street ( little bit cheaper ).
