I booked a few weeks ago and I just arrived and they don't honor me my booking because other people extend the stay. They don't even help me to find other hostel and the manager just call and say that they don't have the room a booked. The guy at the reception told me that he don't care and just... More

The building is well-decorated, full of vively colours. Rooms are comfortable and staff is more than friendly. You should spend a night at the terrace where music, hammocks, food and drinks make you spend a wonderfull moment. You really feel just like home. Definetely you should stay here!!!!

Basic Double-Room w/bathroom, $190 per person/per night , 20th – 22nd March 2014 Vibe: Unmistakably hippy, replete with a dread-locking service and the soothing chorus of duelling Spanish guitars. Location: 4 blocks from the beach, Tres Mundos is thankfully far enough from the Haagen-Daaz and Starbucks experience of Calle 5 and 10, whilst being convenient to reach the beaches by... More

The Tres Mundos Hostel is a great, more layed back (depending on the season, of course!) hostel in Playa del Carmen. The owners and staff are very humane and friendly. Also, the choice of music fits the time of the day they play it in and it is a perfect location, you can get pretty much everywhere quickly, and if... More

My friend and I stayed for about two weeks. This hostel is the only reason we enjoyed playa del carmen. The staff were.lovely...they joined in with the guests which gave it a family vibe. The kitchen fscilities aren't great but beggers can't be choosers...they are useable! Bedrooms are.nice, great outdoor chilling area and location is great!

This place is disgusting to say the least and if we hadn't had belongings I would have rather slept on the beach. We had a private room (bed and small side table) which was damp even after we had the windows open. The blinds were made of cane and had bugs on them which we had to kill with deet... More

Louise, the only thing that spoiled your 2 weeks was your incorrect decision of accommodation. We have a quite understandable description on our booking websites and I have no idea what made you book a hostel private with shared bathroom during party season in Playa del Carmen when you are traveling with an overly sensitive ill partner. You needed a... More

Dirtiest bathroom I have seen in a long time. Dead cockroaches in the rooms and hallways. Grimy windows and kitchen. Could be really a great place with more love and attention as it has some charm and life.

We stayed one night in this hostel and would not return. Upon entering it was dirty everywhere. From the floor in the entrance, the common area and our room. Our bedding was very old and not at all comfortable. The prices are extremely inflated for the Christmas/New Year area and after spending the previous night in a hotel that was... More

thank you for your opinion. you came in the height of a party season (20.dec-10.jan) when hostels are full of party kids that dont focus on maintaining clenliness and keeping quiet. people choose hostels to party and socialize and it gets noisy and dirty at times whatever we do. we cleaned 3 times a day in a desperate effort to...
