Important for me when I was looking at this place was having A/C and a bed, which room #11 checked those boxes. Room, bathroom and shower room were clean and water pressure from the shower head enough to take a shower. Zero issues getting bed sheets and pillow case with my 5pm check-in. Staff was always friendly. As far as...

The Poc-Na is a very famous party hostel on the island, therefore a lot of tourist rush to sleep there. My advise is to take a different hostel to sleep and come enjoy the people in Poc-Na during the day or come at night to the nice beach parties. The staff were very nice, but the service was terrible and...

When I arrived at Pocna I was speechless, and I mean speechless bad. My friend and I had a private room, which we described as 'if you had been kidnapped and were being held hostage' to our friends and family back home. The room was disgustingly dirty, I'm talking a cockroach farm living in the door of the bathroom. Which...

Poc Na is what you expect from a party hostel on a Caribbean island: breakfast is served under a palapa, bar on the sand surrounded by palm trees and hammocks, live music every night. It is a good place to party on Isla Mujeres, rooms however are not super clean and you only have wifi reception at the entrance.

More than 200 people, 2 bars, a private beach with a beach volley field, places where to put your tent and camp i the islands, lots of good vibes and party. Best place where to stay in Isla Mujeres! Do not miss it!

Slice of paradise on the beach. Massive hostel with amazing staff. Beach bar at night for the best party on the island. Rooms/facilities are average, what you would expect on small island. Wifi is bad, wont get it in the room at all try the communal area or go down the road to "the rooster". Location is perfect close to...

Poc-Na was the only hostel anyone talked about when Isla Mujers was mentioned so we had high expectations and it delivered. The actual hostel has a cool layout and is huge. They offer free activities every day, live music, scuba diving, nightly beach parties and a pool table which automatically makes me love it. Staff were involved with everyone, and...

Only if you like a huge amount of filthy partying backpackers who prefer to sleep in the common room after another drunk night, and love to hear very bad party music till 3 am EVERY DAY, this is the place to be. If not, make sure you don't even get close to this place. We even got this hostel advised...

My friend and I were very disappointed with this hostel considering all the hype that was given to it. Unfortunately there is simply not enough staff to cater for the amount of guests staying at the hostel. On our first night we weren't given sheets (my friend didn't have a pillow!) and when we went to collect them that night...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mexicos oldest hostel that still ranks among the countries best. Built in the 1950s it is located on Isla Mujeres, a small Caribbean (7km long) island and is 20min from Cancun by boat. This hostel boasts a restaurant and bar that is open until 11pm, after which the real fun begins at the beach bar until 2.45am. Pocna has access to beach volleyball, games room, movies on demand and bikes for rent. We are close to North Beach, which is Isla Mujeres most beautiful beach and Pocna itself is situated right on its own beach that is perfect for relaxing and taking the sun.This exciting hostel offers free activities such as Yoga everymorning, Spanish classes, juggling and what ever happens to be being taught by one of the many talented people that pass through. If you have the talent and the time of at least one month, you can teach an activity and have your cost of your stay covered.Winter time brings on private parties inside the hostel and also bonfire nights with live music and jamming after. Everynight in there is live music in Pocna and the year also brings many high profile bands to play within the walls of Pocna. Those to date include Los Authentico Decadentes, Los Aguas Aguas, No Te Va a Gustar and La Renga with many more in the future plans. An amazing fun and social hostel. On the backpackers trail and full of international guests. A must to come and visit in Mexico. ... more   less
