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

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
