Liked: The whole place is more like a home than a hostel. The house is a funky place, and the staff cook breakfast and dinner for you. One morning, I had an early start due to a tour, and one of the staff made breakfast for me at 6:30am even though breakfast time is officially from 8:30am. Laundry service is also awesome, and they make your bed for you everyday.

Disliked: Mosquitoes.

Liked: I have never seen a so good hostel to meet people. Everything is done to create a great atmosphere such as the homemade dinner which is served every night. The staff is very nice and helpful. The hostel is located in a nice area of Downtown Cancun and is not far from the main bus station, shops and the buses heading to the beach.

Lockers available in the dorm and free towels to bring to the beach

Liked: Breakfast and Dinner included! Staff was extremely helpful - and having guests eat dinner together makes it easy to meet other guests. Great location in downtown Cancun - much better than staying in the Las Vegas-style Hotel Zone. Lots of yummy cheap food, and easy access to the beach and bus terminal in this location. I would love to go back!

Liked: Best Hostel i have seen for meeting people. Because dinner is included it brings everybody together to talk and make plans for drinking, tours to chichen itza, beach trips. I am travelling alone so meeting people is really important. Also meals are good and the staff are friendly and super helpful with travel tips to your next destination. 10/10!
