Stayed at Popol Vuh for a total of 14 days with a bunch of friends. Rooms are what you would expect from a good budget B&B. Clean and spacious enough (depending on which room type you choose). Showering facilities are just fine but could use a little upgrade :) Same goes for the locks on the doors. The gate is... More

Incredible location, steps to the beach and a block from the bus station. Clean, very safe, good value and nice owners. Rooms and grounds are basic, but fine. Highly recommend as long as you Don,t expect luxury.

Right by the beach. Right at the start of 5th Ave. Free breakfast in the mornings. My friend and I got the bunkbeds room which was small but tolerable. Bathroom was small too but at least private. No AC - just fans - may get a little hotter in summer months. Overall, no frills, but that's what I was expecting... More

These cabanas are 1 minute from the beach. The location is great. I stayed with 3 of my friends in the cheapest cabanas- there were another type, which I can't comment on because I didn't see what they looked like on the inside. There was a shared bathroom which was functional and had hot water. They don't usually provide towels... More

We booked online to be sure of a bed when we arrived in Mexico, so didn´t shop around. There may or may not be better value for money, but we thought the rom was cheap enough. The cabanas did have some charm, being quite rustic, but they could do with better maintenance, as the site was pretty scruffy. Not their... More

I didn't like it there. As some people say... You get what you pay for... The room was small. I can deal with that, but i cannot deal with used sheets. Under the cover there were a few hairs on the pillow (not mine or my boyfrieds) And the sheets were not clean. As we asked for new sheets they... More

The popol vuh exceeded our expectations, but then we weren't expecting that much given the extremely low prices. We stayed in the basic bungalow with shared bathroom and were impressed that they were cleaned frequently (our bungalow was cleaned everyday). The place is rustic, you might even say a bit run-down, but somehow we found it to have character and... More

For what Popul-Vuh charges I would not recommend this hostel. It has no soul, there is no social area, we met no one, in fact saw no one. Be warned the receptionist speaks no English (not even "check in" or "towels"). Room was nice, had air-con, good size. Premises themselves are quite run down. But.... the location is on calle...
