  • The spirit of this hostel is held up my the great italian couple who run it. Every morning homemade breakfast was served and also every evening there was homemade dinner (included!!!) The best part of this hostel is the great atmosphere and the feeling of being at home.

  • We left the phone charging in the "lobby" and it was stolen. The Room was advertised with aircon and there was none just fans.

  • We stayed in Orchideas for 3 nights from 1st May and really enjoyed our time there, we had a spacious private room with air conditioning and hot shower. The hostel staff prepare a breakfast and evening meal for residents daily free of charge and the kitchen is available for residents to use as they wish. It's quite far from the lovely nightlife and beach but is easily accessible via public transport. Staff are friendly and the hostel is clean, highly recommended.

  • More stable and faster wifi connection would be nice. The mattress was a little hard sometimes with the springs.

  • Orquideas not only provides a place to sleep, but it provides a homely atmosphere you rarely get anywhere else. Because it is a small and intimate hostel, you will not have trouble making many new friends. You will never feel lonely here. The staff are always happy to help and Hang out!

  • The staff was excellent! They helped us to book trips and gave us a lot of tips of what we could do in the city. We really liked that it was breakfast and dinner included! And the dinner was always really nice!

  • markis very nice and helpful. He is very patient and offered very good advice. However, the waterflow is very small so the shower is not Beverly good.

  • This was one of our favorite hostels on our trip! The owners of Orquideas made us feel like family. Check in was quick and the staff and owners are fluent in English. Dorm room was super clean, common area and kitchen were beautiful, and we loved the row of hammocks outside. The family cooks traditional Italian dinner for all their guests some evenings. We put all the small tables together outside & everyone ate dinner together. It was an amazing experience! They even scheduled our taxi for us!

  • It's a very good Hostel. The staff and environment are very kind, respectful and ready to help you whenever you need. The owners of the hostel can find the best offers for travels around Cancun (they have contact of many "tour-sellers"). Also, they provide breakfast and dinner every night. If you want, you can bring your beer and drink it in the hostel :).
