The Yak is new in town, but we are about to change the rules!
Crated by travelers that know what a traveler in Playa needs.
With a combination of the best location and the best accommodations, it is the only way to experience Playa del Carmen.

Our place is chill when you want privacy and also the best way to start the party!

Tiki bar, rooftop terrace, grill, huge yard, hammocks, basketball, a stage for live shows and movie nights, 2 kitchens, luxury mattresses, A/C, and a soon-to-be pool... do we need to say more?

The vibe only allows for fun people, so make sure you come ready to have a good time :)

The Yak is applying a Age restriction policy (17 - 34),
so we can keep our vibe, young and fun like this hostel was build for !
Sorry if it Offends somebody.
Prices are per person per night.
