This is the 2nd time I have stayed at Hostel 3B, and it was so nice to visit once again. The location is perfect, a short walking distance from the bus station, main drag and the beach. It was great to see the new bar upstairs on the roof, the guys have done an amazing job with it. The rooms...

Negatives: Dude at the front asked me what part of Mexico I was from? First of all I don't have any Mexican in me, next time ask someone "where you from" if you really want to know. Second I hate when hostels ask for my passport to keep untill I check out, better yet ask for an ID. At the...

Cracking hostel. The roof top bar made it. Staff and parties were excellent. The usual Sunday's party was my highlight in playa del Carmen. Rooms were perfect. Great atmosphere. Probably the best spot we stayed in playa

I stayed here for the BPM festival, it was amazing, we met lots of people, had a good party on Sunday with the djs and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff is really helpful and the location is simply the best, everything is in a walking distance. Would stay here again, Highly recommended.

The best thing about this hostel is its excellent location. It's only a block or two from the ADO bus station, ferry terminal, fifth avenue, and the beach! The rooms were nice, clean, and cool with fans and AC on during the night. There was enough space to move around, lockers for everyone, and comfortable beds with their own individual...

I just love this place! I have been here many times and it just keeps on getting better! The staff is amazing, and they make sure you have a great time. Rooms are new and clean. The rooftop is a must, even if you're not staying at 3B, you need to pass by for SOS Sundays: great vibes, music and...
