The SOS lounge and hostel bar is on the rooftop of the 3B Hostel. Cool and helpful staff. Drinking games as beerpong and others and also ladies night twice a week. And they have the best strawberry mojito margheritas ever!! Very cool place to spend the nights at in Playa!

This is much more than your average hostel, from the rooms to the parties they have. The staff is amazing, friendly willing to help with anything and most of all they are fun. The bar on the roof is the perfect place to meet new people or hangout with old friends, they even have a pool up there for the... More

I have been visiting this place already three times and every time I return it feels like going home. I count my travels not by the numbers of miles i made, more by the numbers of friends I made and this place connects you just with the right people you want to have around you. In terms of music I...

My time here was short but it was absolutely the highlight of my travels. Refreshing environment, steps away from the entertainment of 5th avenue and beaches. The experience from the rooftop lounge alone is something to grab your attention. Surrounded by nature and wild life, with a pool and great music/sound system... Couldn't ask for more. The vibe from the... More

Title : Best hostel ever Text : I've been traveling central america for the last 3 months and Hostel 3B has by far been the best hostel yet. Air conditioned rooms, brand new beds and a really clean and new feel. For the price I couldn't ask for any more. Rooms aside the hospitality and rooftop bar are definitely the... More

Best hostel I've ever stayed at. The owners Brooke and Ivan are the coolest dudes you'll ever meet. If you have a problem they sort it out asap. The rooms are clean and safe. The roof top bar is awesome to chill during the day or party at night. Cannot recommend highly enough.

My buddy and I backpacked the Yucatan this past November and came across 3B. We've been recommending it to everyone since. The rooms were good, the location is great, the rooftop and pool were a nice treat and the bar was a lot of fun at night. What made the difference was the staff. From the front door to the... More
