staff parties rooftop bar/ pool social music free bbq's
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.
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.
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 :)
Dorms a bit too crowded out, standard for any town hostel though
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
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!
It maybe might have been cool to have a free access to a computer, but except that, I don't have anything to say!
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.
Wi-fi does not work in the rooms only in the common area.
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
