This hostel is not like any of the other YHA's I've ever stayed in around the world, unfortunately. Reading other reviews this place seems to be hit and miss with travellers. My experience - After 5pm they pump out music on the rooftop common room so loud you can't hear what the person next to you is saying without them... More

Perfect place for backpackers to stop in transit. Ideal close location to the Bus Terminal. 2 minute walk max. Couple of nice cheap quesadilla places nearby. Reception staff were lovely and really helpful despite a booking error (very apologetic). The dorms are basic and clean. The private room we got for our second night was spectacular and easily worth the... More

Getting here from the airport on the Ado bus was very easy add the coach stop is just a block away. It cost just 64mxn (about 3 usd) each. The connections here are good, very near the main road, there are buses running to the main beach strip (R1) just in the block behind. This is a flat rate fair... More

This hostel is located in central area of Cancun, near the bus station. So you can get a bus to Chichen Itza or to beaches very quickly. The room is very comfortable with cable tv and air-conditioning. The breakfast is simple but good. Wifi is also good. The only bad thing was the shower of our room that wasnt working... More

Stayed here for a week on my recent Cancun trip. Located in Downtown near the ADO stop. Staff were great, and they had a bar with decent priced drinks, Only a short bus ride away from the beach & airport. I loved my stay there and will return!

It's OK - more like a party place as the common area and kitchen is also the rooftop bar. Thus a bit pricey. Far from the beaches - you'll need to take a bus to get there. I stayed there around Feb, 2014.

A good hostel close to the busstation. Not to much to do nearby, but easy to take the bus around. The hostel have a ok breakfast included in the price. They have own closets to everyone right next to the bed. Aircondition is'nt always turned on.
