Nice hostel with a good private 4 bed room for 500 pesos a night. Private shower good wifi in the room. Younger seeming atmosphere so keep that in mind. We booked in at 4 am after our Belize- playa bus and people were still awake. But not noisy because the rooms are far from the common area. Thanks hostel Che

We got to the hostel and it took almost half hour for the receptionist to do our check in, then they split our reservations, then there was no WATER, and instead of charging us $13 per night per 2 person, they charged us $75 per 2 nights... the only good thing was the night live at the rooftop and the...

I needed a cheap place to stay for 2 nights so i found this for a real good price. I got late to do the check-in which I thought it could be a problem, but it didnt, the only thing is that it took me a long time to do the check-in since the cashier was finishing his shift and...

Really enjoyed our stay, we're sad when we couldn't book again. The staff is very warm and inviting. They also found and returned my friend's wallet and passport before he even knew it was missing. Thank you guys! Will be back.

I love Hostel Che . The staff are awesome. However they are remodeling the bar upstairs and unless you don't mind being woken up by sledge hammers and power drills in the early morning I would pick another hostel. They don't even discount for the inconvenience. When you party till 3 a.m. and get woken up by sledgehammers at 7...

Hostel Che is definitely a party hostel. We slept in the room next to the lobby and were kept up until 5:30am. Not a bad thing but not ideal when you have to get up at 6:00am. The rooms were nice and clean and airconditioned. The hostel is in a really good location - close to the main strip/beach and...

As noted, it's where all the action is at. If you want to party/drink each night then it's golden. Our dorm was pretty dirty, especially the bathroom. The shower backs up into the drain on the floor so it gets flooded if there are too many people showering in a row. Also the sink tap didn't work so had to...

Hostel Che has everything very close, the main bus stations, la 5 avenida (the main attraction of Playa del Carmen), clubs, beaches, restaurants . That would be i think the only reason i would recommend it. Oh no...also the parties they organized on the terrace were really cool. The stuff were young and restless, some of them really nice. I...

Stayed at this hostel for only one night, it's a good place to meet people with it's rooftop bar, but nothing really special. It's not really clean (stains in the bedsheets) but for one night it's okay. When I arrived there was heavy metal playing at the reception/common area downstairs same as during breakfast, which was perhaps a bit too...
