While the hostel itself is really cool and the location is great, we were pretty disappointed with our stay. More than 5 different people recommended pocna to us so we were expecting big things how ever we're let down from the beginning. The front staff were not the friendliest and either were the kitchen staff. Refilling water is $$$$$$ as... More

The hostel is in a great location, close to the beach and town. Very noisy every night so be prepared and do not stay here if you want to go to bed early. The dorms are also very hot (we were there in the middle of summer). Overall though we had a great stay as we knew the above before... More

I returned to this hostel with a friend after being impressed when I first visited in 2007. As backpackers my friend and I were in a 6 x bed shared dorm which had a private en-suite. The rooms are fairly basic without AC and the shower water pressure wasn't great. Breakfast is basic but free, tea// coffee, toast etc. The... More

First arrived - smooth check in. Got to our room and it was fairly basic I guessed you just got what you paid for - three bed private with fans and no bathroom. After speaking with other guests we found out there were other private rooms with air con, private bathrooms and even one with a fridge for the same... More

If you want a party hostel this is the place to go, loud music until late at night. Not very clean, super basic room, no towels available, you need to make your own bed. It is however right on the beach and there is a basic breakfast and you get a free drinks voucher when you check in. It wasn't... More

Clean and friendly hostel a good place to meet new people. The stuff is very friendly and helpful , it has night shows almost every night with great music. The dorms with the air condition are to cold and they turn it on only at night so prepare to sweat during the day. Would definitely reccomend it.

Absolutely loved this hostel, right on the beach and even with beach in the backyard. Awesome parties happen every night in the beach bar (back yard) where you can dance on the dance floor or on the sand, then jump in a hammock if you need a break. Rooms and bathrooms were clean, though bathrooms could have used a bit... More

Great hostel, clean & tidy. Rooms were pretty hot & there isn't much solace from the heat. Toilets could do with more regular cleaning with that many backpackers drinking & partying at the place. Great live music, & bar.. met loads of awesome people & it's close to the best beach. Staff are friendly & helpful & even though we... More

We stayed in a double room with a private bathroom. The sheets on the bed are super thin and filled with holes and stains, I tried hard not to think about what they could be! Our curtain was a blanket that an outside light beamed through ALL night. Wifi was almost non existent. For what we payed a night at... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mexicos oldest hostel that still ranks among the countries best. Built in the 1950s it is located on Isla Mujeres, a small Caribbean (7km long) island and is 20min from Cancun by boat. This hostel boasts a restaurant and bar that is open until 11pm, after which the real fun begins at the beach bar until 2.45am. Pocna has access to beach volleyball, games room, movies on demand and bikes for rent. We are close to North Beach, which is Isla Mujeres most beautiful beach and Pocna itself is situated right on its own beach that is perfect for relaxing and taking the sun.This exciting hostel offers free activities such as Yoga everymorning, Spanish classes, juggling and what ever happens to be being taught by one of the many talented people that pass through. If you have the talent and the time of at least one month, you can teach an activity and have your cost of your stay covered.Winter time brings on private parties inside the hostel and also bonfire nights with live music and jamming after. Everynight in there is live music in Pocna and the year also brings many high profile bands to play within the walls of Pocna. Those to date include Los Authentico Decadentes, Los Aguas Aguas, No Te Va a Gustar and La Renga with many more in the future plans. An amazing fun and social hostel. On the backpackers trail and full of international guests. A must to come and visit in Mexico. ... more   less
