Really enjoyed our stay here!The staff here are awesome, they make everyone feel so welcome. Located opposite Walmart,and 2 blocks from the party strip and 5 mins from the beach. big kitchen decent breakfast hammocks. Lights out in the common area at 12.30 but accomodates for those who want to continue the party with a rooftop terrace with swing chairs!

My first hostel so I didn't know what to expect and it turned out to be an amazing experience! Extremely clean, good breakfast, computer-internet-wifi, hamacs everywhere and buena onda <3 More than excellent service, the staff is extra welcoming and really care! Could hear the bad singing from the karaoke-restaurant up the street though..

5 blocks from the beach, everything is an easy walk. There's an OXXO across the street as well as a Walmart. Good shared kitchen and continental breakfast included. The Hostel have a nice energy with lots of small spaces to chill, inside and outside.

Excellent place. Just a short stroll to both ADO terminals or the beach... accross the street from a park and Wal-Mart. Quiet open design. Friendly and clean. Adequate breakfast...you can pick up food and use kitchen if desired.
