We booked a 10 people dorm room, but we were put in a 14 bed one. We complained about this but they couldn't care less, insisting that the price is good. So what, dude? Not what I wanted! The wifi was the lousiest in all of Mexico, even in the hostel lobby. There were sinks in our room and whenever somebody turned the faucet on, it sounded like a machine gun was firing, not cool (especially at 4AM). The fans were unbelievably old, dusty and loud. The bunks are awful, about to fall. Actually, this entire place seems to be falling apart! Avoid it at all cost, there are far better (and cheaper) places to stay in Playa!
Only the location and the rooftop bar. Absolutely nothing else!

This hostel have roof party anout 3 days a week, loud music, your roomates(party people)might come in and out all the time. Wifi doesn't work in the room.
3 mins walk to the main street and beach. 10~15 mins walks to walmart.

We have booked two single bed in a dorm and got one small queesizebed for two persons. Management was unfriendly, inflexible and blamed booking.com.
Nice bar and rooftop pool.

staff parties rooftop bar/ pool social music free bbq's

Wi-Fi was sluggish as too many users are using it simultaneously (please, change the passwords from time to time). Yet, the Wi-Fi on the rooftop compensates it all. If you are not a party animal, I would be careful, as the music might be sometimes really loud here. I witnessed impoliteness of one of the very young member of staff to a fellow occupier (you know who you are!), please, be careful and hold your horses next time.
I would like to thank all of the staff of this great little hostel. Particularly, Yamil, Joanna and Brooks from the rooftop bar. You really made it very enjoyable. I liked the bar, the frequent free BBQs, the various themed parties, the beer pong and the great music provided by good Djs. The mixed bag of people from all over the world makes this place really special. Location, just off the 5th Avenue, and closeness to the bus station is a plus. Hospitality was second to none, at least during my stay. Cleanness is the priority, and the ladies don't skip any day.

Dorms a bit too crowded out, standard for any town hostel though
This is the place to be in Playa!! Start your evening on the roof top bar, you may get lucky and be here for one of their legendary DJ party's. Was a nice touch to borrow the beach cruiser bike for free too :)

only payable by cash, completely different price, it was not the price from booking.com. breakfast not included, music on the bar too loud,you can hear the music very loud in your room at night, for the people who wanna sleep at night is not the best option. wifi only at the breakfast area.

Loved having the pool to cool off in during the day... The staff was what made my stay so awesome!! Whatever you want to do in playa the staff can point you in the right direction. Five minutes to be beach was great too. I'll definitely visit again!

Loved the friendly staff, bar and club upstairs, the common areas where you can chat and talk
November 24, 2014
It maybe might have been cool to have a free access to a computer, but except that, I don't have anything to say!
It was really cool, the hostel is very clean and confortable. You can easily go to the beach, and it is not located in the "american part", so you can have access to the real city of playa del carmen (with no many tourist). The roof top, is really good, especially when you are alone it is easy to meet people there. It is perfect, except if you don't like to party! I strongly recommend it, people working there are really nice and helpful!

Wi-fi does not work in the rooms only in the common area.
I loved the hostel, great location (close to the beach, the bus station, the 5th ave.), spacious rooms with big lockers, new beds and clean sheets. One bright spot was the bathroom inside the room. On the terrace there is a swimming pool with a bar where every night there's some sort themed party. Super recommend.

Every time I book online, I am told one price but, when I get there, they tell me a completely different price and don't care that I booked with the other price.
I love this place, I have stayed quite a few times when I visit playa.
August 10, 2014
Only thing was that I hadn't booked enough of my time to stay in playa del Carmen and come to 3b sooner! Regretted spending two nights in cancun!
The owner goes above and beyond to make sure you have the best stay. Great bar with pool and equally great atmosphere. Close to the beach and ferry to Cozumel.

The roof top bar has too loud music all the day long. WiFi does not work in the rooms but works great in the lobby area.
June 29, 2014
Amazing bar with amazing sound system. Very sociable.
June 16, 2014
The location was really good. The beach was just 5 minutes walking distance. Restaurants, stores, night clubs, and trip advisors were all close by.
June 15, 2014
The aircon in the room is only on from 11pm until 10am. It was very hot in the room during the day
Great staff very friendly and food is amazing. Would definitely come back

Not right on the tourist strip or beach but still it's so close that it doesn't really matter
All very modern with a brand new bar and pool upstairs and tv to watch your home games on. All staff are really friendly and knowledgable of the area. Super close to the Cozumel ferry too.
May 24, 2014
Really close to the beach and 5th ave. friendly and helpful staff! Great roof top :)

The plumbing in mexico isn't the best, add to that the humidity, and 8 girls in and out of the bathroom, it got a lil ripe, I'd suggest a box of baking soda in the bathroom along with an air freshener, but you'll have this issue everywhere in this area that isn't a giant resort
Location was awesome less than 5 min walk to the beach, the people were so friendly and inviting, the bar on the roof had great service with hostel prices, make sure to get some sushi and bbq on the weekends from Salvador!
