Good value, probably one of the cheaper hostels in playa and compared to some hostels I stayed in kitchen was great. They need to fix hot water problem but I guess that doesn't bother some people. Not the greatest atmosphere if you are looking for a young lively crowd but it's a cheap stay

After seeing how cramped the dorms were we opted for a private room, which wasn't much better. It was a small room upstairs with no windows and 2 sets of bunk beds, so it was cramped with no where to put your bags. There was a fan inside but no ventilation. There was only 2 of us so if there... More

I don't know if you can find a really good hostel in Playa at all. This one might be just at the average local standards. But I have to say I have never stayed in such a cramped dorm. The room was very very small, there was no place to put your stuff. Also the ventilation was really poor which... More

I really didn't enjoy staying here. Why? A couple of reasons: - The dorm was cramped and there was no room to put your luggage. - Part of the guests were really loud and drunk. - There was no hot water in the shower. The girls' shower (upstairs) is very small and again no place to put your stuff. -... More

This well located hostel is reasonably prsied, clean and safe. I liked the bathrooms in the garden, the garden itself and the small pool that is present there. You have ok wifi and a large kitchen with tv. The people are friendly but ask if you need info. However, I was not a super fan of the rooms. The dorm... More

I was pleasantly surprised with this hostel. I have stayed in some horrendous hostels in the past, and with all the options in Playa Del Carmen, I was having a hard time deciding on which hostel to stay in. All of the hostel reviews were all over the place. I am sure glad that I decided on Grand Playa Hostal.... More

We stayed here two nights as four 23 year olds seeking fun....we were not let down! The place is very clean and close to all our favourite watering holes and discotheques. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and with a cosey pool, bbq and free (blue) bicycle rental, to name but a few. The bbq was very good but not as good... More

It's set really near the beach, it's got a great kitchen, air-con at night fans as well, nice green outdoor space, cable TV, rooms with lockers, really clean rooms and bathrooms. And the staff a lovely and friendly, you can't go wrong.

Good location, only three blocks to gringo land (5th ave) then a further to the beach. Big Walmart nearby, close to everything you need really The hostel is quite modern, good kitchen, wifi works well downstairs but I found it to continuously drop in the room. I stayed in a 16 bedded dorm, now this isn't for the claustrophobic! The... More
