I was not particularly blown away by Isla Mujeres, but Poc Na was a great hostel. I stayed in 2 different dorms. The first was very cramped and the bathroom felt very public - but the second dorm was much better. There is loads going on at this hostel; live music every night, a great magic show a couple of...

As a early-night travelling couple we were wary of staying here, but the price is incomparable to anything else you can book in advance online. Yes it is the party desrination of Isla Mujeres, but it's much more than that. Its a dive shop, a yoga studio, a beachfront resort, a hammock park. The reception staff are nice, just really... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Great value for money! Clean rooms and bathrooms which was unexpected so it was a nice surprise. The hostel had a magic show on while we were there and it was epic! Very entertaining. The outdoor area on the beach is so great. There is a bar on the beach and heaps of hammocks... More

Stayed here for 6 nights. Great set up, right on the beach and just a 5 minute walk from the main swimming beach. Had free Spanish lessons, yoga and volleyball game every day. Rooms were nice with good mattresses. Bathrooms were a bit dirty but decent for what you paid for. Fab place for meeting lots of different people. Would... More

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
