If you are looking for an exceptional hostel experience, try XS. The rooms are very clean and quite lovely. You have a choice of accommodations, from dorm to private. The location is in the heart of El Centro, minutes from the beach. This really surpasses what one would expect of a typical hostel, except the price is really right. We... More

XS was found completley by accident on arrrival to the island and what a gem of a find it was. XS hostel is in a great location, close to the beach, bars and restaurants. The rooms are basic but very clean and verygood value. The staff are really friendly and are very accomodating. The cafe next to the hostel, Roosters... More

Not much of a hostel vibe here but the beds were soooo comfy and there was actual hot water-bonus! I did have to hassle them to clean the bathroom-it was pretty gross. The breakfast, at the cafe next door, was good and you could use their wifi. There is a fridge for your drinks and a nice balcony area. Awesome... More

We stayed at XS for two nights. Found it by accident after spending a night in another hostel. The location is excellent, it's very close to all the hassle of the few blocks on Hidalgo, but still far enough that you should be able to sleep. Rooms are all dorms but can be booked as privates, you'll just have extra... More

I stayed at Hostel XS with some friends and was so happy. The rooms were clean and airconditioned and only 2 blocks from the beach. We got a free continental breakfast at the restaurant down stairs ROOSTER of juice and toast but the food looked so good we ordered and I'm glad we did. We liked it so much we... More

I found XS hostel on a site listing hostels on Isla Mujeres. There were no reviews, just a website with prices. I emailed them in advance, in English (my spanish is barely passable), and asked for a reservation for the first two nights of my stay. The website lists dormitory rooms, and "private rooms" as well. I asked for two... More
