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.

The fantastic hostel Ka'beh was never anything short of spotless & had such a welcoming family vibe, keeping us entertained every night with activities and/or communal meals. They were even accomodating to my vegan diet thanks to the legend Jack's out of this world stirfries. All day breakfast was great for those who love a sleep in and so was... More

The best value of this hostel is the courtyard with beautiful mural paintures and a lot of hammocks. Just take a look at the pictures. The rooms are very clean, the parsonnel are amazing... the best place for backpackers!

This hostel is right near the ADO bus station and a great place to stay while in Cancun. Great comfortable beds and clean bathrooms. Nightly activities to make sure that you get the best out of your stay. They have a free breakfast available ALL DAY and no check-out time which means you can sleep in after you've had a... More
