First I want to mention to all those people who are complaining about the fact that this hostel is loud and a party hostel, YES, that's exactly what it is. What's more that's what they claim to be. If you want a place that's nice and quiet at 10pm so u can be up and going at 6 this is... More

This hostel is definitely a party hostel but its impossible to sleep most nights and the water pressure and temperature and general cleanliness of the place is really lacking. I saw too many cockroaches scurrying around. If party time is waht you are looking for then this is the place but otherwise look elsewhere.

Excellent hostel. I wish I found it sooner. Really social area by the pool but you're able to get sleep in the rooms if you need it. Easy access to Cancun and all well organised from the great hostel staff.

The hostel is very social, everyone gathers for dinner every night and afterwards there are lots of fun drinking games to play and you get the chance to interact and bond with a lot of wonderful people but if you don't want to party my advice is don't stay at this hostel . But if you love to party, have... More

I stayed here when I went to Mexico on my own for my 25th birthday. On the first night I nervously went downstairs to and said hi to a couple of people playing beer pong and the rest is history. I met some truly awesome people on this holiday, on my birthday loads of us stayed in the back yard... More

It's a small but really nice hostel. There are several dorms and a couple of private rooms, as far as I can tell they were all clean and looked nice. The bed was comfy for a bunk bed and they made the bed everyday. There isn't a common kitchen but you get served breakfast and dinner daily. breakfast is a... More

Hostel Quetzal was small but quaint, the staff was friendly and the common areas were pretty great. We went when it was a little bit quiet but I can't imagine staying there when it's packed, as the outlets were a little bit limited in the dorms. The free homecooked breakfast and dinner were a nice homey touch and helped make... More

I took a private room on the top floor and couldn't be amazed about how cute the place was. Dorms can be a bit crowded and if you are a person who cannot sleep if the music is on, this is definitely not the place for you to stay. There are people who keep awake all night and the music... More
