I stayed for one month in this hostel in the 12 bed female dorm. Although the dorm wasn't always full, there is less space for your suitcase and there's only one bathroom, which is not enough. The rooms are cleaned everyday, but as there were lots of girls in the room it quickly got dirty again. Everyone does have a... More

This hostel blew my mind! The rooftop/pool area is unreal and the Usual Sunday party was bigger than I could have imagined, incredible music! The staff is very helpful and the room were clean with new firm beds. Even the location was great, No complaints!

Over 40 countries and 6 continents later I have finally found a hostel which ticks all the boxes, that I absolutely love and miss already. If you are a social person, want good company, enjoy a few drinks, want to relax, or want to party, want to meet other travelers if you are traveling alone, want to be close to... More

I visited Hostel 3B in March '15 after spending a week in Cancun. It was such a relief to get out of Cancun and check into a friendly, clean, hostile with a rooftop pool. 3B is a very close to nearby attractions, notable restaurants and most importantly, the beach! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay... More

I stayed here last month and the only thing that I enjoyed was that I already knew some people staying there. I had to move rooms because of the creepy longtermer who was doing drugs and playing the guitar at 1am. Potential to be a good hostel, they just need to make sure their guests are in a safe environment... More

I can't deny that this hostel is one of the nicest I've ever stayed in, really modern with a decent poor and huge terrace. The bar had a great selection with decent promotions. Staff were great too. We stayed in a dorm one night and it was hotter than most but stayed in a private room the second night and... More
