Good price relative to everything else in the area. Short walk up the hill kept the place quiet and laid back - but still close enough to everything in town. Always a hammock available for chill time. Two kitchens so even when many people were there you are able to cook when you want. The staff was super helpful and accommodating. They helped us each time we extended our stay and helped us sort all our shuttles/buses which made onward travel easy. Quick walk to the surf in the mornings, come back and cool off in the pool. I could have posted up there for a month and been stoked. Thanks for a great stay!

Best hostel en S Teresa! Amazing swimming pool, 2 large kitchens, very good vibes with all the guests. After 11 pm you can sleep very well. Very close to playa carmen, good for surfing also for beginners. Very close to Taboo Beach Club witch is the best place for eat sushi and hang out with friends ( Wednesday , friday , saturday the best parties). The owners and the volunteers are very helpful and they can suggest you many activities around. Vaamooossss

Everything felt clean and maintained. Had no problems with staff. People were friendly. Limited kitchen supplies but nothing we couldn't manage. Great location and felt prices could have been cheaper. Wifi not so good.

I came to Pura Vida hostel to stay for four or five days, and I ended up staying for two months. The atmosphere in the hostel was always excellent, it's got one of the nicest Chill out areas that gets people together, and a pool to cool off in. I couldn't recommend it enough, and the whole place feels like one big family, with Pablo and Marcela the lovely owners, and all the volunteers, it really was sad to leave there.

The rooms where rough with thin walls and gaps to the outside. WiFi worked 50% of the time and it felt like they hadn’t really figured out how to run everything. For example: Instead of having payment at check in or check out, they came knocking on our door at 10pm night before check out and asked for all money in cash (right away). So instead of getting to bed we went on a money trip. One last thing. Cleaning of bathrooms and showers could be done some other time then between 8-10 in the morning when pretty much everyone wants to use them.
