If you are looking for an exceptional hostel experience, try XS. The rooms are very clean and quite lovely. You have a choice of accommodations, from dorm to private. The location is in the heart of El Centro, minutes from the beach. This really surpasses what one would expect of a typical hostel, except the price is really right. We... More

Not much of a hostel vibe here but the beds were soooo comfy and there was actual hot water-bonus! I did have to hassle them to clean the bathroom-it was pretty gross. The breakfast, at the cafe next door, was good and you could use their wifi. There is a fridge for your drinks and a nice balcony area. Awesome... More

We stayed at XS for two nights. Found it by accident after spending a night in another hostel. The location is excellent, it's very close to all the hassle of the few blocks on Hidalgo, but still far enough that you should be able to sleep. Rooms are all dorms but can be booked as privates, you'll just have extra... More

I found XS hostel on a site listing hostels on Isla Mujeres. There were no reviews, just a website with prices. I emailed them in advance, in English (my spanish is barely passable), and asked for a reservation for the first two nights of my stay. The website lists dormitory rooms, and "private rooms" as well. I asked for two... More
