Loved the place!! The only place i will ever stay at in playa del carmen!! This is my second time around and i've tried both the private room and the dorms. Location is the best, staff is the best, owner is the best and this place had the best ambiance! Would stay there over any hostel, hotel or resort!

Best hostel I've ever been. Staff was incredible, the only problem is I can't sleep because people have been having sex in my room every night! Brooks and Luis treated me like family and even took me out with them! Come here! Sunday's are next level.

This hostel is at the southern end of the 'happening' part of Playa. The best part of this place is the social activity in the evening - haven't witnessed similar stuff at most other places. They get you up there (open air terrace) by offering a free welcome drink and then you wouldn't want to leave. You'll find people from...
