I was there in 2010, the stuff were so nice and gentle, trying to make you feel confortable. The rooms and the kitchen were clean, but the best is the terrace and the whole atmosphere. I really recommend this place.

There really isn't any other cheap options with this kind of a location. We just needed to stay for a night and it is close to the bus station. It is too bad that they don't take better care of this property and clear out some of the rif-raf. It would be best to pay a little more and walk... More

The girl that checked me in was very very nice and helpful. The rooms are very basic but ok. Wifi is pretty much terrible and only works in the lobby area. Good location right near the action. A bit expensive for privates.

I’ve stayed at Maria Sabina several times a year, for the last 3 years, and plan to keep going back. Its location, the great people it attracts and the low price are just a few of the great things about it. Don't expect a 5star, and if you're a light sleeper think about packing your earplugs, remember IT'S A HOSTEL!... More

This hostel is the best choice if you want good location for a good price. As soon as you step inside the door you can consider yourself like family, staff is great and helpful. One block from the beach and two from the bar street you can't go wrong:) been back three times!

I was here for 4 days, the kitchen was not hygenic, everyone had to clean their dishes some didnt so you would end up cleaning after them. The fridge was a disaster as you couldnt put anything in it, it was packed full with other peoples food. And didnt even know if it was there for ages. Another thing that... More

Stayed here for 3 days during travels around Mexico over NYE (last few days in Dec, first few in Jan). The location is great; at the end of the road is the strip of restaurants, bars and shops (some of which were ridiculously overpriced, but that's what you get in touristy areas anyway, so was expected. Adjacent to the strip... More

We stayed here on our second visit to Playa del Carmen. We were at the end of four months of travelling so were looking for somewhere cheap but close to the beach and safe. We stayed in a double room, we had our own balcony which we could have beers on in the evening and watch people go by. The... More
