Can't say enough good things about this place. It sits in the middle of a tricked out abandoned shopping mall - remember Dawn of the Dead? Yeah, it's like that but without the zombies trying to eat your brains. The concession stand here totally rocks and the vibe is great. The dorms are great too - kinda like being in... More

Hostal Mayapan was home for three nights . It's unique in the fact it's an old shopping mall, the hostel and rooms are large and spacious. There's a really good vibe with plenty of people to meet and share your time with. My dorm was comfortable with good bathroom facilities, a comfortable bed and plenty of storage. Throughout the hostel... More

Nice hostel, the rooms are big (20 beds) but it's still relatively quiet even with people partying in Cancun. They also have a small shop where you can buy shampoo and basic stuffs. The bus station is not far away from the hostel which is good for the backpackers.

This hostel is amazing. The best part about it is the location, it is near the main club area like no other place. 5-10 minutes walk and you are near everything that you will ever need to be near in Cancun. The rest of it is just fine. Hot water disappeared for about 2 days, wifi is spotty and not... More

Upside: We stayed in the dormitorio, which was really clean, so were the bathrooms. The ubication is great too, within five minutes you're at the beach. U also think the price is ok for what you get. Its the cheapest place on the boulevard. Downside: it's in an abandoned shopping mall or something like that. And you don't know whos... More

Great accomodations😀, comfy beds, warm showers. Positive vibes and a great hostel staff. Awesome location that is only a 5 minute walk to major clubs in the area. Highly recommended to the traveller looking to meet backpackers and likeminded people in cancun!!!

A good, typical hostel - you get what you pay for. As a group of friends we were staying in Cancún on a budget, and booked beds in the economy 20-bed dorm. The price was really good. The only bedding given is a pillow and a thin sheet, but not such a problem because of the hot climate. The free... More

It's in the hotel zone if your looking to party and beach it. Only hostel I could find in the area. Great little stop and very affordable. I fly out of cancun to go home, I will be stopping there on my way home. Close to many things. I stayed in the 20 bed dorm and it was a fine... More

Best place if you want to be in the Cancun hotel zone. If you booked a bed in a dormitory of six, expect a room of 18 beds just divided in bunch of 4 by small walls. Super situation. You have coffee at breakfast. The staff is completely bored.....

Stayed there on our last night in Cancun and had an early flight out. The location is great if you like the hotel zone and want to be within walking distance to the beach. Likely the cheapest place to get a room in the hotel zone, although I did see another hostel nextdoor to the Surfin' Burrito towards the end... More
