Cancun was our first stop on a long trip and we could not have picked a better hostel. There is a great communal atmosphere as everyone eats together and are encouraged to go out together every night. The staff are great and get involved in everything. The dorms are crowded and pretty hot but its unlikely you will go to bed sober so won't notice. Throw in a free tequila shot with dinner and you really have the perfect party hostel.

Planned to stay for two nights but couldnt leave for four nights - had so much fun here the people that run it are awesome. Set up is great, atmosphere great - people are sick (as in 'sick as').
Time in cancun with hostel quetzal had me barely just crawling my way out! But one of best hostels I've stayed at - up with rising cock portugal!
Thanks for a mental time in cancun and for looking after me! From Sally A

This is one of the best and most fun hostels that I have ever stayed at. I met up with a girlfriend of mine down there, planed on staying for 3 nights and ended up staying for 5 nights. The hostel its self is clean and has a great little roof top patio as well as a nice back yard. They serve breakfast and dinner each day (they are both included in your night’s stay) the food is great! The little Mexican man makes the best dinners by far! Shots of tequila are served before dinner as well (get ready for this lol) The staff are amazing people, very friendly love to party and have a good laugh. Every night they arrange a different party with the clubs “on the strip” it can get expensive if you plan on going every night but its defiantly worth going out a few times with them during your stay. The average cost is about 50$ USD and that get you a ride to the club, entrance and all you can drink all night. I had the most wonderful time at this hostel, met some fantastic people during my travels and came back with some wild stories. Thank you to everyone at hostel quetzal making this trip one for the books. Will be back for sure.

We stayed for one night because we wanted to party in cancun. The hostel organised out night out which was fantastic. We stated in the hello kitty dorm room which was lovely. The breakfast and dinner (both included) were also good. Only criticism was the bathroom wasn't very clean. Would go back again!

This is the best hostel I've stayed in. I've travelled through Europe, south east Asia and Latin America and this hostel was my favorite. The staff were so welcoming and make u feel part of the family. The hostel provides breakfast and dinner with a tequila shot, great value. I loved staying in downtown claw to mercado 28 where u can buy cheap souvenirs and $4 meals at the restaurants. It's an easy bus trip to the clubs and beach. If you're a solo traveler looking to party and feel part of a fantastic group this is the place for you!
