I am new to the hostel experience and I really enjoyed this as an introduction to the hostel/backpacker traveler world!!!!! The staff was friendly and accommodating! The moment we checked in, they invited us to participate in various Tours and activities. On the roof, there is a bar with sweet drink specials and just an overall great vibe. My favorite part, however, was a couple of special tours that we were taken on by, then a stranger but now a great friend, Alexandro H Cardenas Azpeitia!! This guy went above and beyond and it truly made the whole experience memorable and magical!! The day we checked in, he and his co-worker Mateo, informed us of all the activities coming up and welcomed us to join. Alexandro took us early the next morning on a bike tour to a beautiful beach. This is where the real fun began!! We instantly became friends with the entire gang and that set the tone for the rest of our stay!
After we spent the day hanging out, he told of us a sacred cenote that was supposed to be incredible! He created a special tour for us so we could see it ourselves!! This was truly special cuz only friends of those who use the sacred cenote as ritual are allowed to swim in it. I felt honored to be allowed this privilege and there are no words to describe the experience.
By the end of our 5 day stay (which we kept extending because we were enjoying everyone so much), we had collected many new friends from all over the world, including Alex, who made it clear that you can make genuine friends along the way.
Aside from the social aspect, the hostel itself was really clean and had murals all over the place which made it feel really cozy and comfortable. The room we stayed in was really clean, had AC, and had the most comfortable bed of my two month Central American trip. I will for sure stay again and recommend it to anyone stopping by playa del Carmen.
