Toilet papers never stocked well, hand soap dispenser always empty. Wifi did not work, Kitchen is leaky, dirty and shabby. After looking at this you feel stupid to bring...

While the rooms were fine and the included breakfast was pretty good, the staff wasn't that friendly and the hostel wasn't that clean. There are other hostels that offer more for the same price so try to find them.

We can definitely not recommended this hostel. There are a lot of Locals and it's preety hard as backpacker to meet new people. A few people from the Hostelstuff don't speak english, it's getting hard if you have some questions and they don't want to understand your "foreign spanish" and english. BTW: The AC is since a while not working.Just...

I stayed 5 Nights in Ché and enjoyed every day. Met tons of travelers, and all of the people working their share tips and hints with you. This was my first Hostel in Latin America, and a very good choice, for a kick-off. The breakfast is continental with fruits and you can prepare your own eggs. I stayed 4 nights...

I have seen beautiful water environments, as a scuba diver and rock reef guide. I've also visited a cenote with a Playa del Carmen company (which was full of fifteen year olds jumping from rocks). But the ones that Alexandro brought us to absolutely blew my mind with their beauty and peacefulness! We were in the middle of the jungle,...

I've been going to Che for the last few years and I'm sorry this review came so late. Hostel - Your gf will approve regarding Che's cleanliness. It's small however charming. With the rooftop bar it makes it very easy to get to know everyone. Culture - travellers from around the world stay here. It's a great place to meet...

In this Hostel it is so easy to meet other people. They offer a lot cheap trips and every night is ladiesnight. The hostel is only a few minutes from the beach. The bus station is not more than 2 minutes away. The wifi is slow as everywhere. The breakfast is ok. Please do not forget your earplug's.
