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

The best hostel I've stayed in around the world friendliest staff great breakfasts, the rooftop bar is a real winner great place to meet new people and quality music. Really good vibe in this place. Rooms kept clean and good aircon. Value for money for food and drinks and good tequila of course.

We arrived first day to pay less than we thought, a party of 4 took a 6 person room no problem, decorated with taste, clean and efficient, the rooftop terrace has to be the best place in playa del Carmen for music, food, open minded well travelled people from across the world. Such a good vibe, owners are great guys.... More

Righto. So if you're looking for the best hostel in playa... Look no further. This place rocks. Everything from the crew and the 2 owners (who are both always there ensuring things are always running smoothly) to the sick rooftop bar and pool which is open with wicked tunes and DJ's every night of the week bar Mondays. Yvan, one... More

It's definitely not a lie when they say chic and chip, the dorms doesn't feel like a dorm, the beds are super comfortable and the rooms are nicely decorated with brand new washrooms, private to each dorm. They have a really nice pool on the roof with a chill area and a bar that at night turns into a cool... More

Awesome location, awesome staff, awesome people. As a solo traveler it can be difficult to meet people when you arrive at a new place. This wasn't the case when I came here. Ishmal checked me in and introduced me to 3 other solo travelers at the hostel before I even got to my clean, spacious room. Whenever I had any... More

You get what you paid. It's cheap so it is ok for what you get for. It could be cleaner. That's for sure. Pros: -There is a dorm for women only -every dorm has its own bathroom -they make your bed on a daily base -no age restriction -there is free wifi in common areas -staff is very friendly. They...
