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

The place is really nice for the money you pay. Breakfasts are just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! The Chef Ernesto, besides preparing the most delicious breakfasts, he is very funny and does magic!! Probably thats why food is great. You will not regret staying and eating there. I would come back and recommend this to anybody!

3B was the best hostel I stayed in while traveling Mexico. Staff are friendly, bubbly, entertaining and always up for a good time. Great location, great value for money, CLEAN, large bathroom! Couldn't fault the place! I wouldn't stay any where else in Playa del Carmen.

Me and my friend spent 4 nights at 3b, really had a great time. It is perfectly located close to the main shopping avenue, the mall is around the corner, the Ado bus station is a 2min walk and the beach is in walking distance as well. The rooms are clean, the atmosphere is laidback. The rooftop has a pool... More
