Stayed here for 3 nights whilst trying to find a longer term place. Booked the basic garden view cabin with shared bathroom. Was more expensive than a hostel room but I am sure the hostel dorm rooms would have been substantially better. Pros: - Great Location- it's a 1 min walk to beach and close to ADOs bus station and...

This hostel was a bit more pricey than some I've stayed in but the location was amazing, two steps from the beach and the main shopping areas where right around the corner, although so close to everything it was still quiet enough to get a good night sleep or just chill during the day. As a girl on my own... More

Days one through four of our trip were rainy...more like, downpourish...haha. The staff decided to upgrade our room based on the rain and NO UPCHARGE! Room was cleaned daily, the lady cleaning the room noticed we had put the spare blanket on our bed and later that day, we had another proper blanket at the foot of the bed. It's... More

Picked this place last min based on being close to beach and 5th ave and its affordable. Really impressed with how quiet and relaxing it was. Room was very simple but clean and spotless. We tipped the lady who cleaned the room each day so maybe that helped. Outdoor kitchen was nice too and used alot by everyone. Place is... More

With a superbe location right in the heart of Playa del Carmen (5min from the ADO-busterminal und 5min from the ferry to Cozumel) this hostel tops it with clean rooms (privat) and clean shared bathrooms (with hot water). All shops, restaurants, washsaloon etc. you need are nearby. The place is quite at night (no disturbance form nearby restaurants or clubs).... More

We where five friends staying here for four nights and enjoyed our staying. The place is located right next to the beach and close to several restaurants, shops, night life and the Cozumel ferry. Even though the location is close to everything the street just outside is still calm and nice. The staff where really friendly too and helped us... More

This place is very basic, but if you're used to staying in hostels it's pretty decent. It wasn't super clean, but it was acceptable. What it really has going for it is the location and the vibe. Right on the beach, super chill, lots of hammocks, a nice open kitchen, and right on 5th Ave, the main tourist strip. For... More

This hostel, situated just meters from the beach, was prime location for shops and great restaurants. The facilities are clean and basic and the staff friendly. The hammocks under the palms provided much relief from the sun and the heat. If you are the kind of traveller who doesn't mind geckos and other crawlies this place ticks all the boxes.

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
