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

Hostel Quinta Playa was my first stop on my extended trip around Latin America and it left a tough act to follow. The location was very convenient just a block from the ADO Bus station and just metres to the beach. But by far, my favourite thing about this hostel was the people. I met some great people here both... More

I Spent 12 night at Hostel Quinta Playa. This is one of the coolest hostels i have stayed in for a very long time. Not only is the location fantastic (50m from the beach) but the people the hostel attracts are some of the coolest i have met. The place is an international mecca. The staff are super cool, Che...

Despite the party vibe I loved this place. Yes the music can be loud but most of the staff is great and the people this place attracts have been some of the coolest travelers I've met in Mexico. If the music is too loud you can always ask for them to turn it down. The kitchen is comfortable and spacious... More

We stayed here for two nights with a group touring the Yucatan. If you don't like sleeping, head here. Granted the location is awesome but this is a NOISY hostel with loud music played until late. Despite claiming to be the newest hostel the mattresses are definitely second hand. Horridly lumpy with twanging springs every time you move. Despite the... More

There are many other hostels in Playa del Carmen, and this is one of the worst I've ever stayed at...the sheets and towels were dirty, the staff was rude and not at all helpful,-- one young staff (woman) played EXTREMELY LOUD electronica music for much of the day--not a place to relax, have a conversation, or read a book.

Friendly staff, right on the beach, ... what more could you want? I was here over new years 2012-2013 and had a great time with all the other travelers. Plus, this hostel is right off of 5th avenue, the pedestrian only street in playa with all the best bars and night life.

We chose this hostel, due to location and it not being a party hostel and we werent disappointed. It is seriously 30 seconds from the beach, 2 min walk from the ADO & super close to all the restaurants/bars. We stayed here for three nights and were very comfortable. Booked a ladies only room which was fine, got moved once... More
