Stayed here at the end of my Mexico trip, it was good to see many Aussies since Im from New Zealand. Kinda felt like home. The place is run down and has all the amenities required for a hostel. Wifi works, cleanliness was 2.5/5. Staff were great, they are very knowledgable about local attractions. The A/C was super cold at... More

Stayed here three different times! Felt like home! Super social, something happening everyday and everynight! Easy to meet people! Aircondition in all dorms, free breakfast and super helpful staff! Best hostel to stay in in cancun! Close to the park with awesome streetfood and 5 min walk from busstationn

First impressions were not good - the room stank. And needs a good airing. The breakfast was okay. Poor wifi. Nothing special. It was the first hostel of this trip and since then they've gotten a lot better. One night in cancun is all you'll need and this place is ok for just about that!

Spent five or six days staying here as got really sunburned on my first day in Cancun. Got a v nice crew working there headed up by a decent aul skin from oz called krystian. Plenty of hammocks and a good vibe. Right next to a really nice square with the best street food in cancun. Get on it!

Okay, you know when you show up to a hostel and the stars have aligned and everyone there is incredible (staff and guests) and they greet you like you're family? Well that's what happened when I arrived to Hostel Ka'beh. Seriously, this place was absolute magic, and yes I stayed an extra day after being there for a few. Then... More

I would review on hostle world but I got my room as a walk in rather than as a reservation. I went here 2 times, the second time it was a little slow, but that was slow season, unavoidable. The staff here was outstanding, always helpful, and even on days when I was the only one there, they were happy... More

Stayed here for 2 nights - very sociable hostel and the staff were very nice. Social activities encouraged in evenings with drink deals and club nights organised (if thats what youre into). We stayed in a 4 bed dorm which was very basic considering it isnt the cheapest option around. Stay here if you like meeting new people. Dont stay... More

Originally, my travelling friend and I were booked in to hostel Ka'Beh for only 3 days but as the week went on we got unbelievably attached to Ka'Beh and ended up staying the whole week. After 2.5 months we have never seen a hostel so relaxed, focused on customer satisfaction and generally fun as Ka'Beh and I'll list how: -No... More

I stayed here for two nights and I found it to be one of the most friendly hostels I have ever stayed in (5 stars for the staff!) It very lively place and there is a community of getting everyone to join in in group activities each night, from pot luck to free bar for 20 pesos to film night... More

They wouldn't even let me book in because I wasn't staying their minimum of 2 nights. I resorted to staying at the wonderful Pueblita hostel next door which I recommend you check out if you find yourself turned away as we were. I would add that the hostel did actually look very nice from what we saw.
