During mid-August, not lot of people staying there. Room was kept clean. A/C running all day and night but does not stay cool enough due to room size is pretty large. Need to bring your own padlock for locker. Towel is available to rent with deposit.

A friend and I stayed at Hostal Mayapan for 3 nights during a recent trip to Cancun. Having been on holiday in California several weeks before, we were looking for something a little less expensive but in a central location, and this came recommended. We stayed in a private room with a bathroom which was very basic at best. While... More

Spent three nights at this good value hostel towards the end of July with three other friends. There were certainly many positive aspects to the hostel with its location in la zona hotelera rather than downtown Cancun making for easy access to the picturesque beaches and friendly staff who had no problem with us checking in after midnight. Sleeping and... More

The hostel was nice and clean enough, but there was no pillow or sheet to sleep under. The lockers seemed like a good pull would bus them open and because of it being an old mall whenever anyone is talking outside you can hear it. There was music and people drinking until at least 2am and no one seemed to... More

Stayed at Mayapan last minute. Checking in at 1 am was no problem. Beds were clean and comfortable. Includes all the basics such as continental breakfast, wifi and towels. Paying $1 extra for a semi-separated four bunk "room" was well worth it for the privacy if you're travelling in a group. Staff were obliging and friendly. Would recommend!

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
