Apart from the nice price, that nice price also includes breakfast, freshly cooked on site. Daniel, who was in charge when I was there, did a perfect job. Rooms were clean, the rooftop was a good place to chill and the vibes where just what a hostel should be like. I'll be back.

Really lovely experience here when traveling with my dog. Arrived very early in the morning and was not due to check in til 3pm. After some initial confusion the hostel manager, Mike, stepped in and went over and above to immediately sort everything for us...going so far as to ensure we were in one of the stunning and spacious apartments, a beautiful Christmas an New years present for a weary traveller. The hostel itself is lively and beautifully decorated and conveniently located. Thankyou Mike for a Great welcome to Mexico!! 👍👍👏👏

Great hostel, such friendly staff and comfy beds! We had to leave early in the morning and they made us breakfast extra early specially. Very nice roof terrace with hammocks, and close to the sea front. Stay here when you come to Chetumal!

... there was a great atmosphere when I was there, I suspect its like that all the time, because of the friendly staff, and the owner was extremely helpful and accommodating, with a great price its was a great stay, each dorm room has their own toilets and showers, the roof terrace was very popular in the evenings with travellers chatting until late into the night and the sea is only a ten minute walk away. The only downside for me was that the bus terminal is about three or four kilometers away, but a taxi is only 35 pesos
