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

The location is ṕerfect, it is just one block away from the bus station, and it is also close to the fifth avenue and a 10 minutes walk from the clubs. 5 minutes away from the beach and also the ferry station to Cozumel. The staff is awesome, I do not remember the girl name but she was really nice.... More

I have no words to describe SOS lounge ( bar of 3B hostel) the bar tenders were very nice to me (specially my dear Nacho), who is always happy and... More

Love this hostel! By far, best hostel in Playa del Carmen. Party vibe 24/7, great parties at the rooftop. Amazing staff! The pool at the rooftop is great, and the rooms are very clean. They turn on the A/C at night, plus they have fans, so be prepared for a cold night. Be sure to stay here on a sunday,... More

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

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
