I missed my flight so I decided to stay here for a couple of hours and get some sleep. I think it was ok. There is a cheap food around the corner. And easy access to bus station. The old lady (reception) was rude and would get agitated when I would ask her....anything. First time staying at a hostel. Was... More

While this place does have dorms and privates, the vibe is a lot more like a hotel. It is not a friendly or communal place. The breakfast is literally just white bread and cornflakes. It is very clean and the private room was hotel quality, so if you are not looking to socialize at all, it could be a good... More

Cons: Rosario, the chief receptionist, is extremely rude and unhelpful. From the first moment I stepped inside the lobby to the last minute I left, she was offensive. She took 25 minutes to check me in because she was adamant that the internet price I signed up for was not correct. Then, as I was leaving two days later, she... More

Moloch was our very first stop on our Central America journey and it was nice that it was in downtown cancun and not the strip. Rooms are clean and it was a delight to swim in the evenings. The rooms have lockers but we still managed to get robbed of $100usd, most likely someone staying in our room, not the... More

LOCATION Location is OK. Couple of minutes from ADO bus station, 10 minutes from Comercial Mexicana (big supermarket), 15-20 minutes on bus from Zona Hotelera (depending on beach you'll choose and traffic). SLEEPING QUALITY Hostel is located in quiet neighborhood. And since it's not a party hostel you won't be disturbed while sleeping. Unless somebody in your dorm will switch... More

This place was clean and had a nice big kitchen. The staff were all very helpful but Maricella deserves a special mention - she worked so hard I don't think I saw her sit still the whole time I was there (if her boss is reading this - she deserves a raise!) Lockers in the dorms were big enough to... More

Nice place, nice common area but not so great dorm room. They even shut the aircon off when just one guest complained about the cold (not even considering the rest of us). And they would not even let you hang around the area once you checked out. Stayed one day and moved to another for 7 days. I stayed there... More

We stayed here for several days, and had a quite nice stay. Nice pool area, and clean rooms. However the hostel is not a typical backpacker-hostel, as there is not much happening and also alcohol is prohibited. We also felt that the staff was not so friendly and not really helpful.
