Stayed here a fair few nights. Despite people saying the rooms are may be a little hot and the dorm beds not the comfiest, I can almost guarantee that a)you'll be too drunk to care (since you're in PdC) or b)the vibe of the hostel will more than make up for it.
The atmosphere here is great, the staff are v v friendly, and there's a really great mix of people staying here. Not just backpackers, not just tourists, not just locals, not just other random residents, but a real good mix that makes for a fun time.
In residence is a guy named Pablo, who gives little tours to the Cenotes. Me and my friend took one, and it was probably the best thing we did all holiday. Pablo is an awesome guide, friendly, knows his stuff, and his tours are cheap and most of all really fun.
Thanks everyone for a great time. I'll be back for sure!
