Really comfortable place to meet people (better to share room as the 3beds suit is inside of a shared room and it's not worth it) like that you can meet more people, free toasts, eggs and coffee information breakfast and pasta at the night! Really good location and workers, noisy as any other in playa del Carmen. Nice beds, nice... More

Not very service minded... We first got there after hours of driving... Nobody was at the reception so we went further in.. All of a sudden a man jumped over, looked drunk, accusing us on breaking in bc we were trying to get further in to find somebody to help us... Overall, awful place just by the service and first...

Hostel Che is a good hostel with a lot to offer. Breakfast is very good - you cook it for yourself which is nice. You can eat as much as you want. The staff is really nice and friendly, 24 reception. Few things: while I was there, some people didn't take care of their stuff and some thing got stolen... More

I was forced to spend a night in Playa del Carmen and left with Che as the only alternative. It was horrible from the moment I arrived to the moment I left. No one was serviceminded, only "partyminded". It was loud, messy, dirty and poorly maintained. Didn´t like Playa del Carmen, didn´t like Che. Will never go back! Won´t repeat... More

The first minute I spent in the place soured my experience when the guy at reception tried to rip me off 400 pesos after charging us too much for the room already (higher rates than what we booked on the website). The rooms smelled like damp musty mold and the walls were moldy as well. The only window was completely... More

Rooms smell really bad, the walls are moldy and bathrooms are dirty. Things like shower head, toilet seat and bathroom door-lock were broken. Staff (mostly dudes)are barely helpful and would create a cliquey atmosphere unless you are a cute girl. As much as I understand that is a party hostel and I didnt mind it being loud on the rooftop... More

Lax hostel rules/culture let the guests behave sloppily and this hostel get trashed daily. The women's dorm smelled like a mix of mold and vomit, the common areas are lousy (one couch out front and a lame “bar” space on the roof), and I found it difficult to meet people as guests are either out or passed out. price: $145...

Pros: pretty good vibe, friendly staff, fairly clean, cool rooftop deck with bar Cons: beds are just metal springs, 4 to 1 guy girl ratio, bathrooms very very small I will check out somewhere else next time!
