Ugh! My boyfriend and I needed a place to stay the night we arrived in La Playa by ferry. Someone recommended this hostel to us but I would not recommend it. The three hostels we visited before coming here were booked for the night so when we found out they had a room, we got it. We stayed in a... More

The boss was really unfriendly, it was dirty and the atmosphere was really agresiv. Someone said we stolen things from him in our dorm.. he kicked the door broken.. then he found it under... More

We were in a pinch and it is what it says...a hostel. A bit grungy. The guy that checked us in wasn't the best with English so when we were told they had a private room we were let down with the dorm room. But we needed a bed so it worked. Also when doing prices they charge you per... More

I stayed at Tequilita for 8 nights and I dont have much good to say about the place. There was no cleaning for the first 6 days and no supplies (toilet paper, soap). One of my travelling buddies experienced 5 times, that his bed was given to someone else (I experienced it one time) although the personnel talk us each... More

Great staff! Colorful paint everywhere. Great rooftop where to party and have breakfast. Near the beach and restaurant. Staff always available if you need recommendations. Free access to wifi. Can get pretty loud and crowded.

OK prices and great location, but the wall and ceiling paint is peeling, the rusty fans barely move, we had the least comfortable mattresses of our entire trip, the windows don't close properly, blaring music from reception after midnight and at 8am (ie during their own quiet hours), blood-stained sheets have holes in them... "Breakfast" was two slices of toast... More

My wife and I stayed at the Palace after being terribly disappointed with the Tequila and Yucatan. Our first impression of the Tequila and Yucatan was during a feeding frenzy in their outdoor buffets. We tried the Tequila first then walked to the Yucatan in hopes of an improvement (not). There was trash everywhere with birds and animals picking at... More

The place is colorful but poor quality hostel. Like hippie hostel. It's not clean. The bathroom was small, dirty. There were not clean towels, they even smell. Cheap bed sheets. Far from 5th av or any other good attraction.

A colourful and lively hostel that is cheaper than the HI hostel next door with great ambiance and subtle reggae background music during the day. Facility is not as well appointed or as well maintained but serves the purpose of a great sleepover and in-room/dorm bathrooms and showers. They make up for it by making your bed for you and...
