The Yak, had a friendly chill vibe. It wasn't crazy loud, there was fun and laughter on certain nights. I stayed in the 6 bedroom dorm and it was really good. I would bump into one or two other people while in the room, which is kind of cool- bc you get your space/private time.
It was good, if you want to chat it up, there is someone around but if you want to go into your world, they have kitchens to sit in, upstairs livingroom or rooftop, hammocks downstairs for you to find it.
Lights in the bathrooms -suck bc they were dim but .. hey.. it's a hostel
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- "There are no strangers here, only friends we haven't met." That's the vibe you can expect when entering the perfectly shaded, outdoor courtyard at The Yak. With a combination of the best location, great accommodations, a friendly staff, and lots of awesome things to do-you can't miss out on The Yak. Located right in the center of Playa, The Yak is close to everything: 5th Avenue (known for its restaurants and shops), grocery stores like Wal-Mart, 12th Street with all of the bars and nightclubs, and, of course, the beach-but many people pass the day in the hostel lying in the hammocks or chilling on the rooftop terrace. In The Yak's courtyard, you will find a 24-hour reception with lots of staff members who are always available to answer your questions, a cool bar with cheap prices, and a café where you can order paninis and coffee. The Yak was created for travelers, by travelers-so it's more than just a place to sleep, we try to keep it fun! We have different activities everyday including movie nights, tours to Cenotes, our famous Mojito Lesson, and many more! For those looking to explore the Mayan ruins, we can reserve additional excursions. The Yak has two communal kitchens, bright/airy dorms, and private rooms with kitchenettes, so there is an option to suit every budget.
