Besides the good location and the friendly stuff I can't recommend this hostel. The dorms are dirty. The bathrooms as well. You can feel every spiral spring because the mattresses are so old and cheap. The advertised free (incl.) breakfast is not much more than two slices of white toast with a tiny pack of jelly and a cup of...

Besides the fact that Tequilita Hostel is located in the heart of Playa del Carmen, only steps from the beach and famous 5th avenue, this charming hostel has genuine spirit and vibe like I have never seen before. Traveling alone, the staff and guests made me feel like I wasn't. I felt like I was part of a big family...

Place itself it's nice and the terrace and location really saves it. Otherwise, it is volunteer-run hostel with traveler kids (mostly from argentina, in case you wanted to meet locals) running it. Nothing wrong with that and in fact they were friendly enough, but the price is a bit on the higher side for what you get, staff is very...

Stayed her a week so far and really good fun. All the volunteers are really nice and there is something happening every evening from pizza to ladies night with free tequila! There is a nice bar on the roof and a kitchen so you get to meet lots of other people whoare travelling

Stayed at Tequilita for 2 nights. The worst hostel I've ever stayed in. Dirty dorms, shower didn't have a head and water pressure was awful. Rooms weren't cleaned in the 3 days we were there. The staff were rude and spoke little to no English. I was grabbed in the middle of the night by a strange man sitting on...

Ok so if you want to sleep comfortably DO NOT go here. If you want to party and meet other crazy weirdos then yes go here. I've read reviews of couples staying here and all I can do is shake my head and somewhat smirk. Do not come here as a couple, come here to let loose and get wild....

If you enjoy group living this place is average from what I hear. I was able to find a private room with private bathroom. The night club / bar on the roof was loud from 10pm-3am almost everynight. Packed with lots of fun people from all over the world.
