"I booked my stay for 2 days and ended up staying 4. Being a solo traveler, it was a great place to meet new people. Activities that were planned through the hostel were also really fun. Facilities…"Read all The Yak reviews

About The Yak
With a combination of the best location, great accommodations, a friendly staff, and lots of awesome things to do—you can’t miss out on The Yak.
Located right in the center of Playa, The Yak is close to everything: 5th Avenue (known for its restaurants and shops), grocery stores like Wal-Mart, 12th Street with all of the bars and nightclubs, and, of course, the beach—but many people pass the day in the hostel lying in the hammocks or chilling on the rooftop terrace.
In The Yak’s courtyard, you will find a 24-hour reception with lots of staff members who are always available to answer your questions, a cool bar with cheap prices, and a café where you can order paninis and coffee.
The Yak was created for travelers, by travelers—so it’s more than just a place to sleep, we try to keep it fun! We have different activities everyday including movie nights, tours to Cenotes, our famous Mojito Lesson, and many more! For those looking to explore the Mayan ruins, we can reserve additional excursions.
The Yak has two communal kitchens, bright/airy dorms, and private rooms with kitchenettes, so there is an option to suit every budget. Many people plan to stay for a few days and end up staying for weeks.
You're guaranteed to leave The Yak with new friends and fond memories, so come be a part of The Yak Family!
The YAK has 4 dorm types - 4, 6, 8, and 12 beds and all dorms are equipped with:
-High quality mattresses (hotel type)
High quality rooms equipped with all you need, including:
-Queen size bed with luxury mattresses
-A bunk bed
Bed sheets are provided and all rooms have hot showers 24 hours and A/C.
Please note that we have multiple 4 and 6 person dorms. This means that if you reserve 2 or more beds in one of these types of dorm rooms, it is not guaranteed that they will be in the same room. We try to keep groups together, but sometimes it is not possible depending on the other reservations at that moment and the guests who have already checked in. Thanks for understanding!
We are ideally located 50 meters from Coco Bongo and the street with the most popular clubs and restaurants, 300 meters from the beach, and 2 blocks from Walmart.
