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

I have really enjoyed my time here at hostel Ka'Beh. The staff are willing to help with any needs you have, big or small. They have these great theme nights... guacamole night, potluck dinner, and my favorite Tequila Jenga night! There's always some good chill music playing and tons of conversation with travellers from around the globe. The hostel is... More

I decided to spend my last few nights in Mexico at Kabeh, before flying back from Cancun, what a disappointment... I ended up staying one and moved to another hostel (way better!) a few blocks away. When I was there I understood why so many good reviews were written about it, the owner actually makes people sit in front of... More

Originally booked this hostel for a week. The room smelt so heavily of mould that even with the doors open it was hard to breath. I had to make sure my face was pointing towards the doors so I could get enough air to sleep. I've slept in mouldy rooms before but this was on a whole new level! Not... More

I can only say good things about this hostel. I had a wonderful 5 day stay. The hostel has the homey feeling i always look for. I slept in the 10 bed dorm ensuite and the price and bathroom/guest ratio was fine. David and Cristina (the owners) are very helpful and have all the inside info you need, the beach... More

Reading through some of the reviews for this hostel I am stumped to understand what some people are complaining about! Ka'beh is an amazing hostel with staff that go above and beyond the call of duty! Its a microhostel which i think is what is confusing some people to expect a party hostel to have 10 dorm rooms with upwards... More

Aaron in particular created a great vibe! It's a home from home & the people were like family! Great place to hang & socialise or jst chill in the... More

I loved my 5 night stay here. The staff go out of their way to make you feel involved. I'm not somebody who typically enjoys the hostel experience that much and it was really appreciated. They are also very flexible with no specific times for check in or check out, and you can eat your breakfast at any time of... More
