I had a great stay at Excel Sense. Price-quality ratio, friendliness of the stuff etc. all great. I arrived with some people I met during travelling. The great common area offers everything to spend some nice time, cook, relax, chill etc. The rooms (I stayed in a 6-bed dorm) could have a tiny bit more space for luggage especially if... More

Great stay, amazing staff, they were really friendly and made our stay stress-free not just in the hostel, but in Playa del Carmen as well. Rooms: Travelers might say the rooms are small, (stayed in a 6-beds/3-bunkers female private) and sure they seem so if its fully occupied and of course when taking into consideration the amount of bags and...

Laid back atmosphere, tastefully decorated, very clean and super friendly and helpful staff. Dorm was a tad small for 6 people. It is in an exclusive neighborhood - a bit far from the center though especially if you want to catch colectivos to go site seeing and go to the center for dinner and bars. However, there are good restaurants... More

Clean and good value. Excellent staff that were very helpful, they did everything they could to help me get to see a doctor. Great wifi when it worked, we had some trouble connecting sometimes. Almost alone on the hostel so we had kitchen and pool area for ourselves and the dorm was like a private. Although, we didn't meet alot... More

Excel Sense is a well-run establishment. I found the staff extremely pleasant and accommodating. The rooftop deck is a fantastic scene to chill out by day, or enjoy a bit of a party scene in the evenings. The hostel is beautifully located in PlayaCar, with a residential feeling yet a corner store and a few restos are just outside the... More

I expected more than I got. I had problems with the shower (they fixed), shower door (they didn't fix it in 4 days) and the bathroom door (they didn't fix it in 4 days). In other words: service is not very good. People in front desk are very corteous and helped a lot. They use incense all over the hotel,... More

I've met a lot of nice people in this chilled out, very clean and beautiful hostel. Definitely better that the ones in the city center. I just enjoyed the complete stay. Ps. Why does my review at least have to be 200 characters? (Sharks are nice & Dolphins are evil: Spread the word)

Stayed here for a few nights on my way down the coast! This has to be one of the nicest hostels you will come across. Beautiful, great rooms, quiet location just minutes from everything. Can't say enough about the great staff, especially Paz and Chris!!

A group of us stayed here for new years eve and loved it! The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms clean, and great places to hang out on the moon roof! The decor is beautiful. It was a bit of a walk into town, but quicker to cut through the golf course. You can always rent a bike as... More

Everything about the hostel was excellent; the staff, the rooms, the facilities, the roof terrace. Really great place to stay, especially outside the busy centre of Playah. I hired a bike for very cheap from the hostel each day to get around on and it only took me 10 minutes to get onto the main strip.
