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.

I booked a private room last minute and was happy with my stay for my needs. I was looking for a room in a convenient location to the beach, restaurants/bars and transportation, and somewhere I'd be able to relax after going out at night without hearing bar noise. This hostel is located right in the thick of it by the... More

Amazing oasis with cabana style accommodation, seconds away from Playa del Carmen's main beach. All of the staff especially Alex and Fabian were incredibly nice and made good recommendations for food locally. The burritos at Popol Vuh's restaurant across the rod are excellent and I look forward to returning!

We stayed here because it was one of the cheapest places to get a private double room in Playa Del Carmen but we would definitely recommend this place to anyone. The staff bent over backwards to help us and even let us park our hire car on the grounds for two nights, saving us cash in the process. The kitchen... More

I stayed overnight here upon ending a Mexico vacation, for the convenience of reaching the bus terminal for an early-morning departure. The room was clean, well air conditioned, and was close to food vendors. The desk clerk was fluent in English and very helpful! Also, the price was very reasonable. I'm tempted to stay here for a longer time period,... More

We stayed in a two story cabin. It was nice and clean. The shower had nice hot water and great water pressure and good wifi. The staff was really nice. This is not a fancy place but it's relaxing. If you are afraid of mosquitoes this isn't for you.
