Liked: This is a really great place to stay and you feel at home immediately. The staff, especially Eduardo and Julio, are amazing. The breakfast and dinner make it really cheap staying here and are both great meals. It makes it very sociable also. The hostel is close to the bus stop, cheap food, local bars and easy to get to the beach and hotel and club district. One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in and I would never stay anywhere else in Cancun.

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: Great hostel. Very clean and amazing breakfast and dinners - what more could you ask! The staff are very hospitable. I felt like I was at home!

Disliked: The hostel is located in Cancun city which is far from the main strip of the beaches which is a tad annoying but the transport there is super easy! Important to note that all hostels are located in this area

Liked: The staff are super friendly, and really made the place feel like ahome while we were there, so much so that we stayed an extra 2 nights! The private room we stayed in initially was beautiful, with big windows. Very light and spacious, with our own private bathroom which was clean and colourful. We stayed a few extra nights in the mixed dorm, which again was clean, spacious, cool (good air con) and had enough soft furnashings to keep the place quiet at night. The food (breakfast AND dinner) was great, home made by the staff, and they also gave us a free shot of tequila with each evening meal. Everyone sits at the table and eats dinner together, which is great, it´s so sociable, and a fantastic place to meet new friends. It´s also in a great location, 5 mins walk from the bus station, not too far from the beaches and hotel district, and a supermarket just at the end of the street. There is also a big square nearby that has something happening every night, live entertainment etc. There is also a little park opposite the front door that holds salsa dancing lessons in the evening. The guys who work at the hostel are happy to help you book and or organise your tours, so ask them if you need any help with anything at all, they seem to know the best deals. They will also do yuor laundry for a reasonable 40 pesos per kilo. The club scene nearby is quite good if that´s what you are into, but it´s quiet enough for you to chill out if that´s what you want.

Disliked: Nothing at all, this place was so great, we´re also spending the last leg of our journey there.

Liked: Very close to the bus station, and the staff were very helpful, recommending top places to go. The free dinners are a great way to get people together, and I really enjoyed the organised trip to CocoBongo - an experience not to be missed!

Disliked: While close to the bus station, restaurants, etc, you will need to catch a bus to the beach, but they are cheap and regular.
