We arrived in Cancun at about 8pm from a long international flight and we  had a bus booked for the following morning at 8am. We knew this was only an overnight stay and just somewhere to rest. We weren't expecting anything flash at all. Mundo Joven hostel staff gave us a warm welcome. Our room was on the third floor...

The reception personell were excellent and super helpful. The beds were simple and not comfy but ok. Good internet and a good stop to plan your next step but not a lot to enjoy close by, a lot of traffic a well away from the beach.

We have stayed various times in MundoJoven and every time it was just perfect. Simple, but perfect because they offer everything a traveler needs. From dorm to luxury rooms for couples (which we stayed in) a nice rooftop bar / restaurant and very friendly and helpful reception desk! Only 2 minutes from the bus station and a lot of good...

We stayed 3 nights at mundo joven and the conditions were fantastic. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and it's location is fantastic for backpackers, right near the major bus terminal in downtown cancun. The rooftop common area is very nice with a bar, internet and hammocks to relax in, perfect to unwind after a busy day.

I chose this place due to the close proximity to the ADO bus station that i took from the airport, and the fact that it didnt seem like a party hostel. It lived up to my expectations and then some! The staff was wonderful and so helpful. I was leery about staying in a dorm with 10 beds, but it...

Stayed here only one night after landing in Cancun, but would happily stay for a lengthier stay. Central to Cancun pueblo on the main road and near the ADO bus station, it has a lot of shops and eateries close by. Room was clean and quiet (I had a private room), plus a nice big bath so I could soak...

This hostel is the best place to stay if you are looking to save money and spend it on things worthwhile instead ;). It has a nice rooftop bar where the music is amazing. The hostel is located right in downtown, and you can just walk outside to feel the city. One of the main bus stations is right next...

This hostel is perfect for all types of travellers. The atmosphere is so welcoming in the rooms and in the roof terrace which has a bar and jacuzzi giving you loads to do in the day and night. With a local bus to Zona Hotelera (which holds the main party places and beach) only 2 minutes away it is perfect...
