Good place to stay a walk to the ado station and close to supermarkets / a local market for food. The place is clean and has a decent kitchen. Hammocks to hang out in. The only thing is it's quite loud, need earplugs. Heard the staff chatting late at night and people shouting from kitchen to reception in the mornings.... More

The staff, the location, the price -- all of them were amazing. Every traveler was easy to talk to, they had a different party theme each night, it was a nice atmosphere without that typical "rager party" vibe. No drugs, no shady people. Dog "Diego" and cat on site, who were super friendly too! All the employees there are super... More

A friend and I traveled Mexico and Belize for a few weeks, beginning in Cancun and ending in Cancun. We stayed here the first time and liked it so much that we came back 3 weeks later! The staff remembered us, and were very welcoming. They have a fully equipped kitchen, which helped us safe a lot of money being... More

This place is really relaxed and has a great staff. I know people say that they have too many rules and just that it's too much. Come on guys, it's 10 minutes when you arrive. Just read the rules and let them make a copy of your passport. They make themself responsible for you when you live there because you... More

I was looking forward to staying at this hostel but it turned out to be a big anti climax. Its just a controlled environment where you almost feel obligated to say its great place and spend all your money. From the other reviews I read I was expecting a great atmosphere but from the moment I checked it everything just... More

The place desperately wants to be a 'party hostel'. The owner, David, promotes and pushes the 'organised fun' that's on each night. He can be a little irritating, constantly going on about the hostel events. My girlfriend and I paid for two nights on arrival and when we wanted to change our stay to just one night the owner, David,... More

I found Ka'beh the best place to stay if trying to travel and see everything in Cancun. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful and can advise you of the best places to go and prices. I was able to experience just being able to relax and also go out and enjoy the night life. Every night they... More

I have to agree with Dav T - the vibe of the place was to scam you of as much money as possible. Certainly not a good attitude for a hostel. Pushing you to pay $60 or $70 for the clubs each night is just a ridiculous price for Mexico. Also I had to book a last minute flight and... More

Was skeptical about staying in Cancun but this place is wonderful. Comfortable bunks with a.c., great breakfast you can cook to your own liking, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Was looking for a dentist and a staff member was willing to come with me because my Spanish is not very good. Great location, a short walk to anything you need, only... More
