I did not like that the bathroom door did not lock or that the shower curtain was too short causing water to go on the floor. That is all minor overall though. It would not stop me from staying there again.
I enjoyed the layout and the atmosphere of the common area. I loved all the hammocks, art and convenience of the bar.

The breakfast was okay, but as it was included in the price I cannot complain. The WiFi wasn't the best
Great atmosphere in the hostel and the staff organises nice events/trips. The bar is nice as well with cheap and delicious cocktails. Great location, close the beach and restaurants/bars/clubs

Las personas del staff no son todas muy amables ni acogedoras. Algunos, incluso el dueño, ni saludaban ni sonreían cuando nos cruzaban. Otras (las chicas del bar) súper simpáticas. No tuve ninguna mala sorpresa en el hostel, las habitaciones del lado del bar se quedaron sin agua dos veces pero se solucionó bastante rápido!
Me gustó el ambiente con las hamacas, los arboles: Un verdadero oasis. Muy cerca de la playa, los restaurantes y la animación. Las camas muy cómodas y el baño limpísimo!!!

Too much air conditioned in the room, the rest was perfect

Noise from disco one block away goes until 5 AM.
January 17, 2015
Incredibly loud. We stayed in a bedroom for 2 people adjacent to the main building. From midnight to 5.30 am it was so incredibly loud as if we were sleeping in a night club. Without earplugs we would not have been able to sleep even a second.
Great staff, nice backyard to hang out, super central, parking with camera surveillance (in the street and free)

After a 4 day stay I was charged 50 pesos for shower after check out.
Nice Programm organized by the staff. Very friendly people nice garden with possibility to relax and get in touch with others
January 11, 2015
Although we were in town to party, I still got woken up by how loud it was (till 5 am). Bring ear plugs if you're a light sleeper. Other than that, nothing!
The staff were very friendly! They all could speak fairly good English which is very convienient. We only stayed one night. Be sure you want to party because the location is very loud. Would be a fun hostel to stay longer. I like that they had different "themed" nights: mojito, bbq, etc. also cheap food/ water. The facilities are really cool and big. It felt very secure! Big plus!

They don't accept credit or debit card. You can only pay with cash or paypal (with a fee for this transition). It's better if you can bring money.
It's a really good place to be at Playa del Carmen. There's a bar when you can spend some time and meet people, great breakfast (with cereal and fruits) and it's really near from everything you need.

The towels were not good (old, blurried).
Very close to the 5th avenue, restaurants. There is a bus stop close to the hostel where you can take collective buses to Tulum and Cancun at each 5 minutes. The staff is absolutely amazing, they provide you everything you need and are really helpful. We had such a great time over there.

Location was awesome close to the Playa del Carmen night life. Staff was friendly and congenial. I had a good time. The current hostel crowd that was there was kind of clique but no problem for me.

From what I have seen from past comments and when I was at the hostel, the main tip is to book your bed in the 6-bed room!!! The room is big, has a balcony and individual lockers. The bathroom is inside the room as well. The noise in this room is not a huge issue. The wifi is good and the hostel has an excellent atmosphere!! Would certainly go back.

Activities every night/day including free tours!! Very close to the main strip and beaches. Staff are super friendly and interact with everyone more than what one would as expect as staff.

Great place with lovely people! We had a private room with an AC that took a while to cool the place down but worked in the end! We did have to stop bugs from getting in the room one night after a long storm but the hostel was on top of it, coming around several times to make sure they didn't come in the room (still freaked us out even though the bugs were harmless!) Fantastic activities every night that were cheap or free and everyone really got into it! Definitely reccomend. Good location just 2/3 blocks from the beach and 1 1/2 blocks from the main nightlife part of 5th avenue! WIFI was pretty bad - we could barely access it from our room (although i think that was just because of the room we were in) but was much better in the common area outside :)

This hostel is very clique-based, it's kind of difficult to really make friends compared to other hostels I've stayed at for that reason. Perhaps it would be easier if the staff had more interactive activities that allowed people to get to know each other.
Like the hipster feel and that they have daily activities
April 28, 2014
The environment How easy was to meet people The activities held by the hostel in which you could meet other people
