This is a nicely appointed hostel, the private room reminded me of a somewhat modern hotel room. The hostel rate included breakfast it also has a nice rooftop bar jacuzzi and seating area. The staff at the hostel are well versed in everything from food, tours, transportation etc. Id highly recommend it especially for the price and atmosphere

I quickly booked this place without reading the reviews. I got there and noticed the price for a dorm room is pretty high for Mexico. Fine. I asked if they had Wi-Fi since that was basically the only requirement during this one night stay to be able to plan the rest of my trip. As soon as I signed the... More

We had a private room and it wasn't very clean at all. Hairs on the sheets and blood on the towel. Nice. But the staff is friendly and the roof top is great. The room smelled a bit. The breakfast consists of cereals, fruits, toast and jam. Nothing special at all but it's included in the room rate and for... More

I arrived at the hostel at 12 pm and asked the reception guy for a bed in the 14 bed room. He answered me that there were no free bed but if i wanted there was room in the 10 bed one ( which cost 50 pesos more but had AC). A part from the fact that the AC stops... More

4 nights in Cancún turned out to be pretty cheap as Mundo Joven Cancún being great place to stay in downtown and close to all services. We chose a private room and it was very clean and fresh. The air conditioner was working all the time and the WiFi signal is pretty good in the room and in the rooftop.... More

We slept in a 14 bed dorm with fan for 12 USD. Pretty dirty, hot and broken beds and lockers. Anyway, there's a nice roof top to meet people. Kitchen is pretty small for such a big hostel. 15 mins by bus to the beaches. I bet there are better deals around...

This is a very nice hostel and is worth the price of the room. Great rooftop terrace with hot tub and decent views. The atmosphere depends on who is staying there so it really just your luck. Rooms are fine and ac comes on automatically at a certain time but the rooms are not overly hot.
