We stayed 3 nights at mundo joven and the conditions were fantastic. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and it's location is fantastic for backpackers, right near the major bus terminal in downtown cancun. The rooftop common area is very nice with a bar, internet and hammocks to relax in, perfect to unwind after a busy day.

I chose this place due to the close proximity to the ADO bus station that i took from the airport, and the fact that it didnt seem like a party hostel. It lived up to my expectations and then some! The staff was wonderful and so helpful. I was leery about staying in a dorm with 10 beds, but it... More

Stayed here only one night after landing in Cancun, but would happily stay for a lengthier stay. Central to Cancun pueblo on the main road and near the ADO bus station, it has a lot of shops and eateries close by. Room was clean and quiet (I had a private room), plus a nice big bath so I could soak... More

This hostel is the best place to stay if you are looking to save money and spend it on things worthwhile instead ;). It has a nice rooftop bar where the music is amazing. The hostel is located right in downtown, and you can just walk outside to feel the city. One of the main bus stations is right next... More

This hostel is perfect for all types of travellers. The atmosphere is so welcoming in the rooms and in the roof terrace which has a bar and jacuzzi giving you loads to do in the day and night. With a local bus to Zona Hotelera (which holds the main party places and beach) only 2 minutes away it is perfect... More

Lovely hostel, in downtown, 5 min walk to ADO station, i enjoyed the rooftop terrace and jacuzzi area, although in low season it was quiet still a nice place to stay. Good wifi, A-C, free breakfast and friendly staff, especially Paul the bartender.

Close to the ADO, and it's cheaper to stay here than the Zona Hotelera and far less touristy. It's just a short and cheap bus ride into the Zona from here to hang out on some of the most beautiful beaches and hit the clubs. My dorm had individual fans at the end of each bed and the lockers had... More

Really that is all I need to say as they are SO much better than the other hostels in the area. They are a bit pricey at times but if you're prepared to share a double room you can save on the costs a bit. It is so clean, and the breakfasts are AMAZING. The communal facilities are all clean...

This hostel has great rooms and is extremely social with the rooftop bar and spa area. Included breakfast is a great bonus as well. Very helpful staff. The location was disappointing, 15 minute drive to the closest beach, no local bars or clubs nearby and was surrounded by crappy nail salons and Service stations. 50m to ADO bus station. Would...
