Sunday was quieter. Price was 10$USD! per night and wait... it included breakfast and dinner! Meals served were basic and different everyday. For example I... More

This hostel has a great atmosphere and is lots of fun. Having free breakfast and dinner was good and everyone eats together so it's a good way of meeting people. The drinks at the hostel are cheap (25 pesos each) and they give you free shots. They organise nights out for everyone to go together to the strip. The wifi... More

Was fully aware that it's a party hostel so the loud music and people up all night was not a problem and we were more than willing to join in. However the staff who work there, who are clearly just employed to get people drunk, were very rude. The dinner that was included was vile so I didn't bother touching... More

First I want to mention to all those people who are complaining about the fact that this hostel is loud and a party hostel, YES, that's exactly what it is. What's more that's what they claim to be. If you want a place that's nice and quiet at 10pm so u can be up and going at 6 this is... More

This hostel is definitely a party hostel but its impossible to sleep most nights and the water pressure and temperature and general cleanliness of the place is really lacking. I saw too many cockroaches scurrying around. If party time is waht you are looking for then this is the place but otherwise look elsewhere.

Excellent hostel. I wish I found it sooner. Really social area by the pool but you're able to get sleep in the rooms if you need it. Easy access to Cancun and all well organised from the great hostel staff.

I stayed here when I went to Mexico on my own for my 25th birthday. On the first night I nervously went downstairs to and said hi to a couple of people playing beer pong and the rest is history.

It's a small but really nice hostel. There are several dorms and a couple of private rooms, as far as I can tell they were all clean and looked nice. The bed was comfy for a bunk bed and they made the bed everyday. There isn't a common kitchen but you get served breakfast and dinner daily. breakfast is a... More
