Staff made my friend and I feel welcome as soon as we walked in. Breakfast and dinner was delicious and dietary restrictions were completely accommodated. The facilities were clean and well stocked. The people staying there were very respectful and friendly. Location is very convenient and safe. Less than a block away is a cute park, a food truck court,... More

This place is so great it's actually hard to leave! The staff are so lovely and make you feel like you've been friends for years. It's perfect for a party, there's a super communal feel, but they get everyone to be quiet at a reasonable time to respect the guests who need their rest. I definitely got the feeling that... More

Stayed one night and after that we didn't want to leave, this place is super friendly, staff were quite helpful and kind, facilities are clean and organized. I would totally go back if staying in Cancun again. Nice and centric too, excellent location.

I only stayed at Hostel Orquideas for one night with my partner. we stayed in a private double room with an attached ensuite. I'm sure that we didn't make the most of what the hostel had to offer. the woman at the reception on our arrival helped us with a seamless check in, and showed us around the room afterwards....

This is a great hostel. We stayed on our last night prior to heading back home. There is FREE dinner and FREE breakfast. Both adequate and delish. We had a private room with bathroom clean with A.c. The hostel has great common areas and lots of space. The people working were extremely friendly and welcoming. It is in a great... More

We stayed in the Orquideas hostel for 5 nights in a private room with shared bathroom. There are 3 separate bathrooms with each a toilet and shower. We found that in two of the 3 bathrooms we had cold showers but some people might like it that way in the heat. The hostel itself is great with breakfast and dinner... More

The italian family does a great job! The breakfast is delicious. The offered dinner is awesome, so you get to know the other travelers and hear awesome, fascination and amazing stories. The workers Alex and Daniel are really helpful and entertaining. Especially if both find time to go party and organize the nightlife!

Can't say a bad word about this hostel, the breakfast and dinner that is included is lovely. The staff are very friendly and always happy to help. They kindly held our bags at the hostel for us while we made a trip to Isla Mujeres before moving to playa del Carmen. Hostel is in a good location for local food... More

I stayed at the hostel one month working as a volunteer. I think it's one of the best possibilities to stay in Cancún given that the prices are so convenient with a lot of offered things. There is free WiFi, free breakfast with the possibility to drink water/the/coffee all day long and free towel and sheets. The staff also offers... More
