  • The room that i stayed in was right on the street where the nightclubs below cranked the music. It was hard to get a good night sleep. Then when the music finally stops at 5am then the builders started at 7 hammering away it was quite a stressful stay.

  • The rooms where clean but no the bathrooms if you want people to put toilet paper in the garbage cans you need to buy banquets with covers every time I went to bathroom and saw all the dirty tissue made me nervous besides its unhealthy to have it in the open air please tell tour receptionist forgot her name the one from Veracruz to talk nicely to people she is rough without manners it is a nice location with most of the staff very friendly definitely a cool place

  • Hostel was awesome. Met amazing people and the staff were friendly, especially the girls that worked there they're all 9/10's. Bar is good fun at night. Dead ish time around now (september) so there were mainly just guys there.

  • This hostel is very good if you like to party and enjoy the beach. It´s a bit loud at night but if you want to party it´s ok. Even when you have to get up a bit early you get used to it. The Restaurants nearby are also playing loud music but that is what Playa del Carmen is :) A very short walk to the beach and the main road (1 minute). The breakfast is very tasty. You get to know people very easily and the staff is very helpfull.
