The nicest thing I can say about this place is it is perhaps a good place to visit, and could be a fun place to stay, but there is a good chance it turns into a nightmare. It did for a few of us. I stayed here 5 nights. I come to Playa regularly and have stayed in other hostels... More

Me and a Friend stayed 5 days in the 3B it was just awesome! The location is great right at the beginning of the 5th avenue, all public transports you need to get to the airport or some Cities around playa can be reached by foot in less then 5 minutes. The staff is superfriendly and helpful and there is... More

3b is far from being a bad place to stay. I'm a budget kind of backpacker, which means I can sleep pretty much on any surface. The beds were good, the staff will clean the room everyday (even though just slightly). Wifi works fine at the reception. Showers, AC, beds, all good stuff. Parties go throughtout the night at the...

My sister and I recently stayed in 3B. We have both traveled quite a bit and stayed in maybe different places but this was the best hostel experience we have ever had. The amazing location, rooftop bar and pool, clean rooms are all a bonus but the people were the best part. The owners and the staff instantly greeted us... More

Working on cruise ships and travelling the world for the past 6 years, I have had the pleasure of seeing some amazing places, and staying in some great hotels. My stay at 3B was my FIRST EVER in a HOSTEL, so needless to say I was a little skeptical before my arrival, but all of my fears were completely put... More

After having travelled consistently for a few years now, this is definitely one of the nicest hostels I've been in, big clean beds & private bathrooms with an epic chill out roof terrace, pool & bar to hang at during the day and music all afternoon into night, for me a gray hostel is having a good communial area to...

I had a great time at this hostel! The Wi-Fi on the patio and in the lobby was excellent and high speed. In the morning, it is fast enough to use Skype. The rooftop patio with pool was amazing. There was lots of seating areas. Their is also a bar on the rooftop. The 8 bed female dorm was very... More

The wifi at this hostel was the lousiest in all of the Yucatan peninsula, even in the hotel lobby it barely worked. There were sinks in our dorm room and whenever somebody turned the faucet on, it sounded like a machine gun was firing, which was extremely loud. The fans were unbelievably old and full of dust. The bunks are... More
