Clean and comfortable and great for making friends. The location is great too and they can help you organise affordable day excursions. Breakfast is a bonus. Just what we needed within our budget! Highly recommend it!

Comfortable and big bed and the room was clean, the shared bathroom was clean. The breakfast was ok, we had a pancake one day and chilaquiles the next one. The service is polite and helpful. Location is not the best you have to walk about 4 blocks to get to downtown.

Lovely hostel, friendly staff. Interesting hostel interior. Comfortable room, although the window in the corridor, but there were no problems. The town is attractive from a walk. Tasty street food produced. This city is convenient to go to Palenke. We were good hostel price.

Tiny room, tiny bathroom. NO wi-fi as advertised, internet available only at the 3 cable-streaming computers at the front of the hostel. Clerk was nice but ineffective at getting internet working. Place was quiet enough, clean. Hot water. The sheets and blankets were DRENCHED in fabric softener, virtually toxic waste. I had to drape my sweater over the pillow case...

First of all, everyone is served an individual breakfast...

Cheapest place we have stayed in Mexico yet – 300MXN a night including breakfast...you can’t really go wrong. Planet Hostel is a perfect base for a coupe of days stay in this lovely little town.
