Amazing stay at this hostel. Close to everything and relaxing and quiet. But a great atmosphere in the evenings with music, disco lights and beers. The rooms were round the back so still quiet if anyone wanted an early nights sleep. But the staff and owner mike made the stay very unique and awesome. It has a very lively atmosphere... More

I stayed at this hostel for 3 weeks with a friend whilst completing some training. It was so nice and relaxing. The staff were always friendly and were always happy to help with anything we needed. Its right beside the beach and the main street with all the bars and restaurants. It's close to everything and its really quiet and... More

This is a great hostel, in the perfect location. Perfect place to get some rest while visiting the beautiful Playa Del Carmen. The staff was very friendly, and helpful. I truly enjoyed my experience. Will be back for sure. The place also has a bar, and kitchen, that has a great menu.

Friendly staff, clean, relaxed atmosphere, close to everything (transport,shopping, etc.). The room has it's own bathroom with toilet and shower. The hostel has it's own bar/restaurant/kitchen. The manager was generous with his tequila sitting with us on the terrace and and playing some sweet tunes. The door is locked at night but you can get in at any time. I... More

great place. right by everything. close to the ADO bus station, the water ferry to cozumel, and the collectivos. right on the beach and 5th street pretty much though far enough away from 12th to be able to sleep.

We only stayed here one night and although right by the beach and close to the bus terminal this was really the only positive. The guy on the desk didn't speak any English so with our limited Spanish it made conversing hard. Also the sheets were dirty, the shower head was falling off and when we arrived we had to... More

We're a little late on our review but we did not have a good experience here. It started off well. The man at the front desk let us check in early and it was a good location. Then that evening when we were sitting on the bunk we found a bedbug. We knew that if we went and told the... More

I have been coming to playa del carmen for a few years now, I always come back to Hostel Quinta Playa. There are always fun people staying & working at this place which I consider my home away from home. Wether you are coming to party or just to relax you won't be let down. The location can't be beat... More

The location is on point and the staff is very nice. I was particularly fond of a bird named Elvis that hangs out in the lobby. The beds were fine, but the sheets and pillows were pretty sub par. The location makes it well worth it.

This is up there with one of the worst hostels I have seen in Mexico. It seems like they decided a few years ago to just let it go and spend no money on it until it falls apart. The location is good and staff nice but it doesn't have much else going for it. The mattresses on the beds... More

Hello James and thanks for your comments. Our apologies for the bad experience. You just happened to be at the hostel at a time before we had a chance to do any repairs. The pool had recently been shocked which takes a day before we can clean it. The ceiling roof and lights were due to a leak in the... More
