“Amazing Hostel”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

This hostel is really beautiful and I thought the staff were fabulous and very welcoming. The hostel rooms were great and very clean! The cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in thats for sure! I had breakfast and dinners there cooked by the lovely Shiv and thought the food was brilliant. They have a nice pool and chill out area which was great. The location for me was perfect as it was away from the americanized centre and felt like I was in the real mexico rather then tourist mexico. Shiv was fantastic and very helpful! I felt at home and met some cool people we sat around the table for dinner which was great for me as a solo traveler. I would defo be coming back for the BPM festival and staying at Casa Del Shiva. Loved shiv's parrots they were gorgeous. Thank you Shiv :-)

Room Tip: The king size room upstairs with a pool view was beautiful

Loved this hostel - it's very clean, lovely owner, fantastic food and great pool/chill-out area. The location admittedly isn't the best but it's really easy and cheap to get into town and definitely worth the little extra effort to stay here.

Do hostels have pools? do they have en suites? private double bedrooms, Chillout zones, Sunday BBQ's . Alfresco dining, Evening caberet almost every night from Spains top spanish singers !!

Can you really have all this for £10 with a friendly breakfast included and proper home cooked food in the eveing!! OH i dont think so !

If you want to hostel in Mexico , head to Playa del carmen and base yourself at Casa del Shiva..

All the people i met at this hostel all ended up staying longer than they had initially intended , just because ....... If Carlsberg did Hostels ... They would do Casa del Shiva hostels... Probably the best hostel in the World ....
As Nike say .... JUST DO IT

Room Tip: They are all brand new!

My stay was totally enjoyable, the breakfast/dinner were great, the owners were a great laugh, and when I go back to Playa del Carmen I'll be staying with them again for sure. The rooms and bathrooms were immaculate too.

Room Tip: I stayed in the girls only room and it was fab...all the litte extras made me feel totally at home...

A relaxed environment only minutes away from the infamous 5th avenue. Here at Hacienda del Sol we have 3 lovely dorms, 4 Deluxe privates and a Quad private. Our rooms are bright, spotlessly clean and spacious. All include comfy beds with fresh linen, personal power points and security lockers. They all have fans or AC is available for a small fee.
