This place is all about ambiance! It was my introduction to hostels and made it a very high bar for every other hostel to meet up to! It was my first stop on a two month trip and no other hostel experience came close to that. Big outdoor area with hammocks, right on the beach, outdoor deck/platform for yoga or whatever, volleyball court, bar on site! The showers are decently big and hot! The rooms are awesome with hand painted murals... The hostel lends itself to meeting people and having a really good social experience! There is also a lounge room with ping pong and a tv... Overall, my favorite hostel of all the ones I've seen and I've told lots of people traveling thru the area to check it out!! I didn't find any other hotel or hostel in isla mujeres that I would want to stay at after that!! Perfect scene for backpackers or budget travelers with a desire to have some fun :)

Everynight in there is live music in Pocna and the year also brings many high profile bands to play within the walls of Pocna. Those to date include Los Authentico Decadentes, Los Aguas Aguas, No Te Va a Gustar and La Renga with many more in the future plans. An amazing fun and social hostel.
