This is a really nice hostel 5 minutes by colectivo (30 pesos) from the center of Playa del Carmen, close to some good value/quality local restaurants and food stands and away from all the expensive touristy hotels and restaurants that are crammed into the center close to the beach. It feels safe walking around the area and it's great to be able to eat, travel and live close to local people when staying in such a touristy location.
It's a really attractive, modern house with comfortable common areas inside the property and outside on the patio and by the pool. The rooms are great...ours was huge with an equally spacious shower room and bathroom...and super clean with a very comfortable bed. The price includes a continental breakfast served by the pool.
Siobhan, Jasper and Miguel do everything they can to make your stay at the hostel comfortable, have a massive combined knowledge about the area which they are happy to share with guests, take a pride in ensuring that people staying here have a good time and they work hard keeping the place spotlessly clean.
I"m planning to stay here again in a few weeks time and already looking forward to it. If you are looking for high quality accommodation at a good price and away from the crowds, this is the place for you.
