I love this place, I have stayed quite a few times when I visit playa.
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.
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.
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 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.
Amazing bar with amazing sound system. Very sociable.
The location was really good. The beach was just 5 minutes walking distance. Restaurants, stores, night clubs, and trip advisors were all close by.
Great staff very friendly and food is amazing. Would definitely come back
The aircon in the room is only on from 11pm until 10am. It was very hot in the room during the day
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.
Not right on the tourist strip or beach but still it's so close that it doesn't really matter
Really close to the beach and 5th ave. friendly and helpful staff! Great roof top :)
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!
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
i stayed there for 4 nights. beautiful roomes and amazing friendly staff that is willing to help in whateve needed. definately recomended!
Excellent staff, great environment! Perfect for group of friends or if you are traveling alone, because you will meet a lot of great, young people! Bar at the roof top was also great, excellent music and ambient. I highly recommend this hostel!
Everyone was outgoing and friendly, both staff and guests. It had an engaging atmosphere, the place was kept clean, and the price is right. The staff helped me book a scuba diving trip at the nth hour and I was very happy with the dive and the dive shop.
The Wifi was quite poor although you could still get things done online, just slowly.
everything new, comfortable and big single beds, cleaned every day, close to the beach, excellent and fabulous staff, thanks again to Yasmine and Ismael. You guys made my stay fantastic and unforgettable. I was traveling alone and made so many new friends during that hostel stay. Met many people who just came here for a few days and because it was such a great place, most of them extend their stays. The roof top bar is nice. There is almost every night party, so you can easily meet new people. It's even just a 10min walk to the street 12 Avenida, where all the night clubs are. Will definitely come back and just stay here again.
Just payable by cash! So please bring enough money with you. credit card doesn't work even if it's displayed on the booking.com webside.
Really nice and clean hostel. In a perfect location (closest hostel to the beach as far as I could tell), and staff we all very friendly. Breakfast is cooked for you at a small fee, it's simple but really good for money worth. Open roof bar and pool which was lovely, mostly playing house music which suits the scene. Really enjoyed my stay!
Wifi doesn't work in rooms but very good reception with wifi on roof and downstairs in reception/breakfast area.
1 room for 12 people is bit of too tight wish they have little more space in the room
I was in a room for 10 people and it was very spacoius, they have walls within the room seperating 4 or 2 beds so I felt like I was in a room for 2 Great roof terrace with parties and DJ's Very central, 5 mins from 5th avenue and beach
Breakfast wasnt included Wifi didnt work in the rooms
good location good price friendly staff rooftop pool and party clean place
the room is clean. Fans and air conditionings work good. People are all nice and kind. Had much fun at the bar on the roof. I cannot even say Thank you enough!
The kitchen was a little messy
The owner was there and was fantastic. If you're solo or with a group and need advice, nicest guy I've ever met. I'm from midwest us as well, grew up on a farm in Wisconsin. Nice people--GOOD people can be hard to come by when traveling sometimes, this place is legit and the ownership is solid. Good people, good times.
Wifi signal could have been stronger, cost to do so as ownership is not much--they should do it, sometimes you need that on travel as a hostel hopper.
Location is great to take the ADO buses. Great staff. Great bar on the top floor.
Internet was a bit weak.
Air conditioning worked great. The room I was in was cozy, tidy, comfortable. Lockers in room are a good size for backpackers. The newly finished terrace, rooftop pool and bar area are very nice, and some nights they have dance parties :)
Well located, clean, comfortable and affordable Hostel with lovely staff; especially Veronik who made my stay even more enjoyable thanks to her lovely smile and her kindness.
it would have been nice to have the breakfast included like in most of the hostel I stayed in during my travels in Mexico
It was clean and with nice furnitures. The bathroom was also nice.
I have booked a female dorm, and one of the girl pick up a boy who slept (not only...) under my bed. And then he snored so I can not sleep, that is one the reason why I did a booking in a female room. It would be nice if the reception pay attention of this.
Location was perfect.
The shower kept leaking and the bathroom was a mess. Management tried to fix the problem but wasn't fast enough.
Great location close to the beach, buses, and main ave. The cleaning staff did a very nice job, even changed the sheets every day. It was very quiet.
There was no much comfortable common space, and the wifi did not work everywhere as advertised. The staff were less than friendly.
