We went to the "birthday party" for the hostel's 42nd year. I have been to Isla many times over the years and have visited the place many times. People of all ages are here. The hostel has a large beach and recreational outside. It always seems to be a happening place. If I were a young traveller I would certainly... More

I spent two nights on Isla Mujeres this December and had a great time at Poc Na! The hostel has a great atmosphere and provides many free activities (like yoga, live music, and beach party until 3am!) The hostel has a great beach hammock location, perfect for relaxation

If you are backpacking, especially if you have just spent any amount of time in Cancun! This hostel is a must. You will not meet friendlier people on your travels. The location is perfect as is the activities and nightlife.

Pocna is the only hostel on isla mujeres. It's very well located - right on the beach but a block from the main drag. It's one of the oldest hostels in Latin American, been around for some 50 years and very big - it has about 200 beds. At about 8:30 each night there is live music until 11:30, with... More

We booked 3 nights here in the dorms expecting a bit of a party hostel, but based on reviews hoping for more of a relaxed hippie backpacker feel. Instead we felt like we ended up in some weird university frat bar. We barely got any sleep our first night, since bros were constantly coming in and out of the dorm... More

I was not anticipating this place to be pleasurable, but boy was I wrong. A huge mix of people (def not a "youth" hostel, there are families, retirees and 20 somethings alike) and a super laid back vibe. Perfect location. The beach that is connected to the hostel is great---hammocks and loungers abound. Yoga and capoeira classes and other events... More

Well, staff was helpful and friendly. The hostel was clean and the location was so great!! I was travelling alone and therefore I was relying on meeting other people in hostels. Poc Na was full of young people, you could even say it was packed - however, they all seemed only interested in party and drinking and drugs... I felt... More

Poc Na was a lovely hostel with great facilities, free activities and the beach bar in the evening was lots of fun. Rooms are decent and staff are friendly, close to the beach and offers great value for money. Would definitely recommend!

I stayed here for 2 nights. Initially I really liked this hostel. The staff were good at check-in and the beach/ volleyball court / hammock area is very well laid out. Their rules about drinking are a bit odd. First off, they don't let you drink you your own alcohol here so that's kind of a bummer. You have to... More
