I first went there to jump on the wifi for an emergency and was overwhelmed with the hospitality and amenities of this great hostel by the beach. From the roof top pool bar to the tables on the first floor this place is top notch with a top notch staff to match. I would recommend this place to everyone. One... More

This was my first experience of a hostel! It's clean, modern and has great spaces to hang out. It's 2 minutes from the beach, and the bus station and has a great bar on the roof . There's something on every night, BBQs, pool parties and dj's! All the staff are super friendly and make you feel right at home!... More

Hostel 3B is located 2 minutes from the ADO bus station and one block back from the main plaza in Playa del Carmen and ferry terminal. It has the look of a new hotel with the clean white painted decor, clean white sheets and chic furniture but it very much is a hostel. The staff on the front desk were... More

This was my first stay at a hostel so I wasn't sure what to expect. All I can say is I can't wait to go back!! The location is perfect...steps from the beach, the bus station and every shop/restaurant/bar you could ever want. Before you even get inside, you'll get an "hola" from staff and guests chilling outside. Once you... More

Hostel 3B was wonderful! Being right around the corner from the ADO bus station makes it easy to find. It is also close close to the beach which is nice if your looking for a tan! A fun atmosphere and laid back vibe. At some hostels I worry about leaving electronics charging or leaving stuff on my bed. Not at... More

Had a great time here, staff were super friendly. It's only a few mins to centro and round the corner from 5th avenue and the bus station. Would stay here again. My dorm (of 6) was clean, plenty of power sockets for gadgets, and you don't need to bring own locks for lockers. Rooftop bar and pool - cool to... More

The hostel is total noisy mess. They couldn't find our booking even though I showed them my conformation email. After a while waiting someone checked out so we got a bed in dorm instead of them. The hostel is not totally done up yet so there was so much dust, extreme noise from drilling, banging etc. Found it very stressful!... More

It was very clean, one does not need to know the whereabouts of Playa del Carmen because the staff is very helpful and they can advise you with everything. Really good location, centric, and excellent price! The owner is there taking care of everything so you get this vibe of friendliness and coziness. Loved it! Every time I go to... More
