“More than expected”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We chose this hostel, due to location and it not being a party hostel and we werent disappointed. It is seriously 30 seconds from the beach, 2 min walk from the ADO & super close to all the restaurants/bars. We stayed here for three nights and were very comfortable. Booked a ladies only room which was fine, got moved once and the next room we had was bigger (bonus), Air con was put on at night (why need it during the day) which we even requested to be switched off as it was getting too cold. We booked our tours through Julio and he was helpful. Kitchen was decent to make breakfast/lunches and they occasionally do dinner nights for a few pesos. Wifi was really good too. If you are after a hostel that is more like a big home and not a party one, then best to stay here.

This is the best choice for people travelling on budget to playa del carmen. The rooms are very nice and clean and the hostel is right next to the beach. The location is perfect overall as you have 5na avenida on the other corner, where all the touristy bars, restaurants and stores are (if you are looking for that). The hostel has a pool, kitchen, TV area with a couch to chill and a couple tables to eat and two roof tarraces as well.
Best of all though is the great atmosphere that you will find there! The guys working there are really nice and relaxed and everybody is welcome :)
Seriously if you come to playa del carmen, that's the place you want to stay!

I have never been so thankful for the location of a hostel in all my life! i came to playa and spent the night at a hostel across the street from Quinta, the place was a slum and I walked right into Quinta, the lady showed me the room so I could see if I liked it and I moved right in.

This place is clean, airy, comfortable, and did i mention clean? I have been to many many hostels in cancun and playa and this is by far the best one. It is right on the beach and in the middle of everything and the price is good.

there is a pool but for me, i just go to the beach if i want to water but it is a nice accessory to to landscape.

THANK YOU QUINTA PLAYA!!!

See you again soon!

I was in Playa for 1 week, and I’ve decided to stay in Quinta Playa Hostel.
It’s a new hostel, located 20m from the beach, and just 1 block from the ADO bus station.
The “Quinta Playa” avenue is just around the corner, so you can find a lot of restaurants, shops or exchange offices.
As for the hostel, honestly, it’s one of the cleanest, nicest and safest I’ve stayed in.
Dorms are cleaned every day & commons areas are very clean too.
The rooms are nice (with air conditionning), beds are comfy, showers are moderns, and you have your private locker for your stuff.
The staff is very friendly and helpful and they give good advices!
No doubt that when I’ll visit Playa del Carmen again, I’ll be staying at Quinta Playa Hostel!
