I love this place!! Great staff! People from all over. I've read some of the "not so nice" reviews and if you're looking for a high end, luxury room, this is not the place. The room was very clean, was sufficient for all my daily needs. I read some reviews that said there was no hot water; the hot water... More

I really enjoyed being 50 feet from the beach and the laid back atmosphere. I heard some people complain that it's not a five star hotel. If that's what you're looking for this place is not it. Popol Vuh is clean and the staff is friendly and takes care of you. I relied on them to get me great deals... More

It is a humble place with friendly staff. It is true that it is not the fanciest but to be honest that is what makes it perfect. If you think that a resort is what mexico is about not your place. Thanks for giving a place that you could feel like home.

This place has one of the best locations in Playa Del Carmen. It is one block from the ADO bus station, a few steps to the beach, and right off the main avenue walking street in playa del Carmen. I came from Belize, and arrived really early in the morning, I was tired, but luckily they let me check in... More

This "hostel" doesn't offer dorms, only private rooms. However, most of the rooms have 2 big beds so you can get the best deal by going with a couple friends or a family together. It has a very good, relaxing vibe. There are hammocks hung in the common area under the shade of palm trees in the sand. The common... More

A very good location just behind the beach and close to the bus station to go to the airport and boat to Cozumel. Bungalows are clean located in a garden with friendly people around. Its a place to go!

We found Popol Vuh an ideal place to stay with our two teenage daughters. The location allows for independence among all family members to either spend time at the beach, wander through Playa del Carmen on foot, or relax in the lovely courtyard, which is usually quiet during the day, but in the evening offers the opportunity to meet other...

You can feel the good vibe in this hostel. The variety of room options makes it a great choice. There is a social room in the middle of the hostel where you can hang out with the other guests. I took due to business purpose so I could park there.
