I stayed here for 10 days. Great location! One block from the beach and one block from the main street. Beautiful house, huge dorms, clean bathrooms, good wifi, very nice kitchen, courtyard, pool table, good music and super nice people. Feels like home :)

Awesome place and a perfect location, close to 5ta Avenida, Playa Mamitas and the ferry terminal to Cozumel. David, the owner, couldn't have been a better host! I'll definitely stay at Green Monkey Hostel again, and I recommend it to everyone. Thanks for everything, David!!
