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

I have traveled and stayed in hostels all over the world and must say this one was by far the worse experience. The hostel is very dirty, they never seem to clean the outside sinks where everyone brushes the teeth and is disorganized. For 370 pesos you get a very basic room without a bathroom and couple fans which are... More

I never stayed for their logings, but stop in when I'm on the island for breakfast/lunch. It gets a bit lively at night at the beach bar, so a great place t to grab a drink. Its a short walk from north beach.

Stayed here for two nights in a private room with a friend. First impression, really chilled place with friendly staff who spoke English (unfortunately my Spanish is a work in progress so this really helped!). Great communal area with bar as well the big sell... A massive beach garden area (backing onto the beach) with hammocks, volleyball pitch and a... More

A fun and friendly hostel. We stayed in a dorm room with AC. Poc Na was our first hostel in which the air con actually worked. The dorm room and bathroom was kept very clean and it was actually nice to spend time in the room. Breakfast was basic, toast and a hard boiled egg. You could pay if you... More

Stayed there only one night but would have loved to stay longer! The location is great, the beach-garden is amazing, for real, it's a dream ! There are activities everyday, you can play all sorts of sports... The food is alright (breakfast could have been better though). The staff is also adorable! Everyone I talked to was friendly.

We only lived there one night, but the place seems very nice with a game room, a stage with live music each night and a beach bar to party in the evening. Friendly staff and good prices on renting mopeds. We would have liked to stay longer and tried some of the free activities the place offered. The only downside... 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
