The accommodations were a bit pricey for what they were (private with bathroom). And there were a ton of ants all over the dirty bathroom and kitchen. However, the staff were very accommodating and the location was great.

Stayed 3 nights. Clean rooms and good working airconditioning. But the guests there smoke marihuana and normal cigarettes all night. Next morning you find all the ashes and buds on the Floor. Also in the kitchen there was no equipment. 1 fork to eat! So we had to take turnster!

We spent a week at this place and there was a couple of nice surprises waiting for us such as daily cleaning + sheet change several time during our stay (never had it in a hostel before!) or hot AND cold water - all the time! (you usually get either/or in Central America). The location is really convenient - you´ll... More

I go diving in Playa as often as I can. This hostel is in a great location and convenient to the REAL Playa del Carmen where you can eat like a local. I've stayed here probably at least 3 or 4 times and always get a good deal. The guys are friendly, you've got internet access, and a great patio... More

I read the reviews here before I booked a room. We only needed a room for 2 nights. I like to use hostels abroad and the reviews stated this is more a like a cheap motel. Sounds good to me. I don't think that most people who stay there drive a car. We may have been the only ones or... More

Great Staff. 3 blocks off the beach. No frills & shared amenities like fridge/freezer is so handy for keeping ice & meals. TV had more channels than near by hotel. Fan in room rather than a/c. I found the rooms to be clean & kept up fairly well for a hostel. I will stay here again if i return. Book... More

Basic, great location, very quiet, super clean & very affordable. Book thru hostelbookers.com for the best deal. We are in our mid 30's and were hoping this was not a party hostel and we were very happy with the diverse clientel. This place offered a deal during high season, holiday time. Coloers Mexicanos offers no air conditioning (did have ceiling... More

what more can you ask for? Colores Mexicanos is a very good hostel! I have enjoyed my time here. I even had a problem, that got fixed straight away, the guys in the receptions were very friendly. The downside about the hostel is that they don´t have warm water, or I didn´t have any in the two rooms I was... More
