Liked: Love the hammock garden!! Great location by the beach and near everything, enough activities. Free drink coupon to the beach bar was a nice plus. Incredibly cheap and a good value for the money.

Disliked: The beds were the smallest ones I've ever seen, maybe 60 cm wide and it wasn't even actually a mattress of a bed.

Liked: The beach bar area has lots of hammocks to relax during the day and cheap massages which were very tempting!

Disliked: The beds were very narrow pay a $2 more for a wider bed not sure it has bed sizes on hostelbookers? You can't use the kitchen or store any of your food.

Liked: Could be awesome without the loud music every night and the lack of wifi

Disliked: That a lot of the dorms are around the bar area and that if you are in one of those, you won't get any sleep till they turn of the music. Also the wifi permanently sucks and it is only available at the bar area and not in the tv room...

Liked: This hostel is actually pretty big. The common room is nice and something goes on every night. The first night there was a bonfire, and the second night a NYE party on the beach. Both nights had several different people spinning fire.

Disliked: At 2AM on New Years Day, with everyone still out by the beach bar and on the dance floor, everything was suddenly and unexpectedly shut down. Seriously? The drinks were still flowing from the bar, and drinks here aren't especially cheap (for Mexico) either; we all had money left to spend and they left us hanging. They could have at least left the music running for an extra half hour to burn off a little steam.

Liked: They have free activities throughout the day such as yoga, spanish, etc. there are free concerts at night, there is breakfast included, however, it is only coffee, toast, jam and banana. The location is good, it is at the beach, however, this is the side of the beach that you don't go to swim. The nice beach is on the other side (7min walk). Dorms are small but clean. They also rent bikes and have snorkeling trips that i find very convenient. There are to tons of people to meet and talk to. The overall atmosphere is like on the college campus. You get a free welcome drink at beach bar. There is an eatery that you can order food in the hostel that is also very convenient. The hostel has 2 guards that keep it safe.

Disliked: We stayed only 1 nite and did not extend the stay as the place feels too crowded. It is not possible to relax for me in such place. The price is not such deal as well. The room was small and really hot. We paid for the dorm (2 other people with us) $25 with shared bathroom outside the room. You get a double room in a low bugdet hotel few blocks away with air-conditioner & bathroom for the same price that gives u more privacy. Pocna has a beach club that opens at 11pm and closes with last guests. People from outside can come to the beach club as well. The music is loud and goes on all night. If you are planning to sleep this is not the right place. Party goes all nite. Everyone gets drunk and the average age is I would say 18-25 (?). Its a party place but i was rather exploring mexico and the island than party all the time. I was bothered to find drunk people sleeping in the hammocks when i was having breakfast inthe morning. The staff was quite but not super nice. Just OK.

Liked: I spent 8 nights at the hostel, It is a very busy hostel, with lots of friendly people from all ages from a baby to 70 years old, Im 50 and found everyone to be friendly and the place had a nice atmoshere, my friends laugh at me when I tell them I stay at hostels but when you travel alone it is fun as you meet up with the real people travelling and make friends from all over the world, Thank you for a great stay Im about to return for Christmas and New year

Disliked: It is a hostel, I did think the beds were very hard and it was dissapointing that the wirefir didn t always work, Iwould also prefer to stay in a all girls dorm, but thats ok
