As an example they give you coupons for free shots/drinks in the clubs/bars. They take you to standpaddeling and snorkeling trips! Also they do some... More

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!!

Excellent hostel with great location, the hostel manager called David a very sweet boy. Hostel staff very nice and always help when needed. The hostel is in the center of the mat-ters near the main street called "Avenue". Walking distance to everything. Is recommended highly!!

I arrived to the hostel and stayed for two nights. The dorm room I stayed in was not clean, the sheets were falling apart and the beds were extremely uncomfortable. The staff was not very helpful and the hostel was dirty, especially the bathrooms. I would not recommend staying here.

They claim to be a HOSTEL. Of course you don't expect luxury when staying at a hostel, but at least some basic stuff like water for showering should be normal. Of course there can be a shortage, of course there can be incidents, but the way they communicated this to us (zero communication) in the first place and then told... More
