Stayed at this hostel for a couple of nights in a 4 bedroom with aircon. Great vibe at this hostel, great place to meet people. Yoga in the morning, beach volleyball in the afternoon and party at their own beach bar in the evenings. This area also has hammocks! Breakfast is very basic, wifi only at certain spots in the...

Disaster, dirty old beds, hot in rooms, sometimes no running water at the showers and toilets so the smell was terrible. The breakfast it's some kind of joke everyday two pieces of toast and one egg 😳Just well location close to the beach and downtown

I've now stayed here twice and I absolutely love it! It's pretty much the only hostel on the island so if you're looking for cheap accommodation, this is the one. I've stayed in both dorms and private rooms, both of which are fine but I don't spend much time in them! Breakfast is included which is toast, an egg and... More

We got luck and had a 8 person dorm with AC in it, others who have stayed said they did not have AC and it made the stay unpleasant. The beach bar is fun and away from the rooms if you want to have an early night. The location is amazing right on the beach ☺️.

Pretty decent hostel with good facilities. Includes breakfast and water refills and has nice chill out areas with hammocks on the beach. Has a good beach bar which is very lively, but is away from the rooms if you want an early night. We had a private room which had 3 fans in it but it was still absolutely boiling... More

Poc-Na is admittedly the hotspot for nightlife on the island. However, I would recommend staying elsewhere and coming here for a dance after dinner. We were in a 4-man dorm with no AC, consisting of 2 bunk-beds in a room so small that all 4 of us could not stand up at the same time. I found the room so... More

My boyfriend and I stayed her for 2 nights in a private room with AC. Although the room was quite small and smelt a little bit of damp, the AC worked perfectly and the rest of the hostel made up for any downsides. There is live music and parties in the hostel that move to their beach hut after 11.... More

Massages at the Poc-Na spa where great and amazing value, in fact everything there was amazing value! Great atmosphere and amazing location. The beach party was great but far away enough from the rooms to still get a good night's sleep. Worth every penny!

Me and the misses stayed in a private room, it wasn't air conditioned but was still ok for a hostel. Shower pressure was dribble at best but did the job in the end. Saw bed bug reviews prior to stay and........no bed bugs..... For me at least, my partner had minimal bites, about half a dozen. Breaky is included but... More

Strict with terrible customer service. We responded email 15 min late due to our flight, and they cancelled our entire 4 day reservation. Showed up after the last ferry of the night and was told that we were out of luck for all 4 nights reserved months ago. Even after numerous confirmation emails! Wandered the streets at 1230am to find... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mexicos oldest hostel that still ranks among the countries best. Built in the 1950s it is located on Isla Mujeres, a small Caribbean (7km long) island and is 20min from Cancun by boat. This hostel boasts a restaurant and bar that is open until 11pm, after which the real fun begins at the beach bar until 2.45am. Pocna has access to beach volleyball, games room, movies on demand and bikes for rent. We are close to North Beach, which is Isla Mujeres most beautiful beach and Pocna itself is situated right on its own beach that is perfect for relaxing and taking the sun.This exciting hostel offers free activities such as Yoga everymorning, Spanish classes, juggling and what ever happens to be being taught by one of the many talented people that pass through. If you have the talent and the time of at least one month, you can teach an activity and have your cost of your stay covered.Winter time brings on private parties inside the hostel and also bonfire nights with live music and jamming after. Everynight in there is live music in Pocna and the year also brings many high profile bands to play within the walls of Pocna. Those to date include Los Authentico Decadentes, Los Aguas Aguas, No Te Va a Gustar and La Renga with many more in the future plans. An amazing fun and social hostel. On the backpackers trail and full of international guests. A must to come and visit in Mexico. ... more   less
