The place has a very nice, welcoming and helpful staff; there is a nice terrace and a sattisfying breakfast. It is also located just near the bus station. Unfortunately, the place is not clean enough and it is infestested with bed bugs. Luckily I noticed them while making the bed. I changed the room and the sheets and found some... More

Front desk and overall building facilities are clean and newish, its more of a party hostel I think of it as an option for kids (and party seniors) that couldn't make it to the all inclusives but if that's what you are into for your entire stay then probably this is the place to go, very close to bus station...

The Mundo Joven Hostel was the first stop on my two week trip down the East Coast of Mexico. Means my friend chose the private double room as it offers an en-suite and a practical start to our trip. The room itself is spacious and there is a sofa-bed and double bed so perfect for two travellers. The showers were... More

A great hostel. I stayed two nights in the mixed dorm all of my needs were met and then some. The bar on the roof was amazing for meeting other backpackers. The bartender going around pouring tiquela shots into mouths of customers for free was well received.

Stayed at this hostel for the first leg of my trip and it did not disappoint. The rooftop terrace had a constant stream of tropical and house music which was perfect to relax to with a corona on the hammocks. Paul the bar tender is such a genuine guy and is always having an amazing time with all the guests.... More

I stayed in the hostel for 2 nights in February 2015. The location is excellent, being 3 minutes walk from the ADO bus station (where the airport bus service terminates). The bus stop to the beach zone is also located nearby. The staff on reception when I arrived and departed were both friendly and helpful. My room was large, clean... More

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
