Had a wonderful stay there! The place is just amazing, with fruittrees everywhere, a nice pool and a great hangout spot if you just want to relax! Kathy, the owner, is the best host you could wish for! She helps with anything you need and even suggests stuff that you wouldn't have thought off, fx driving to the east coast to see the first mexican sun rising! On our 8 weeks off travelling this is by far the best place we have stayed at :) would recommend it to anyone wanting to relax and fulljoy!

If you want a chilled out vacation this is the place for you. Don't expect a young party scene here. Rather, expect people who go to sleep early and lay by the pool. This is a wonderful mini oasis. A tip if you stay here is always consult Kathy (person in charge) before doing anything because she will be able to get you a better deal. For example, we rented scooters before asking her about it and turns out she could have gotten us scooters for cheaper. Only good things to say about here!

We enjoyed the stay in this hostel. We had a nice and clean private room with my friend, only had some problems with the shower and hot water but it didn't matter actually too much.. The kitchen area was good place to chat with other travelers. And have to say that the lady who owns that place was very kind and helpful! Thank you for that! :)

Thank you for taking the time to add a review. It was my pleasure to meet you and host you here. I wish you would have mentioned about the hot water: there is a trick to it and I could have shared that immediately with you! As a result of your words, I've now incorporated that 'trick' into the orientation given to those who reserve the private room! I appreciate your openness. Thank you again for choosing Amigos Hostel for your Cozumel holiday and all the best to you and your friends.!

Very nice hostel. Possibly the cleanest hostel I've seen. Loved the diving around the island too. Wish I could stay longer. Will use this hostel again next time!

Amigos was my favorite hostel! Beautiful grounds, a lovely pool, a large well stocked open air kitchen. Open air commons area with books, movies, TV, comfy couches, and hammocks. The dorm rooms were super clean and tidy as were the bathrooms. The owner is extremely knowledgeable about the island and things to do. She has snorkel gear, lights, towels, etc, for rent as well. The property is walled in and dotted with fruit trees that you can eat when they are in season. Amazing hostel experience!

We had a very great time at amigos hostel cozumel. The owner took the time to sit with us, she gave us a map of the island and explain the activities we could do. The hostel is very clean, calm and the swimming pool is nice too!

Great, low key hostel. Very central, close to the piers/main streets. Good food all around. Rooms are a good size, lockers are big, Kathy the owner is very helpful/accommodating. Clean/well maintained - could use new pillows/mattresses but not a bid deal. Guests are mostly divers so early to bed, early to rise. Hammocks/pool to hang out in after diving - it's a very relaxing atmosphere. Staying at the hostel means 1/2 off gear rental price at Deep Blue dive shop - good value/great dive shop.

So sorry it has taken me so long to respond to your very kind words. Thank you for taking time to add a review. Mattresses for lower beds were just switched out. It was my pleasure to meet you and spend time chatting to you, as well as host you here for your Cozumel dive holiday. Wish you all the best in life!

One of the best hostel experiences I have had. I have never written a review before but just had to spread the word on this place. The owner is amazing and makes the place feel like a home away from home. All the facilities are super clean and there are more facilities than you even need. An extra shower and bathrooms in case the ones in the room are busy, and additional sinks in the rooms. Given that beaches are hard to come by in Cozumel having a pool was great! I'll be back! :)

I wouldnt recommend this place. Its clean it looks nice but there is no atmosphere and you feel like you are living in someones house. This is not a hostel its a homestay. The owner is trying to be helpful but It makes you feel awkward the momeNt you walk in. There is a rule for everything and signs everywhere to tell you How to behave. We did a snorkel trip through her and it was a rip off. I wish someone had warned me not to go there. Its also quite far from everything.

Thank you for taking the time to respond. I am sorry you did not enjoy the snorkel trip or your two night stay here at Amigos due to the guidelines that are posted. The snorkel trip has been enjoyed by many other past clients as well as myself and I wish you would have had the opportunity to explain to me why you felt it was a 'rip off' despite the discounted price you received. Enjoy the remainder of your vacation and all the best to you in the new year 2015.

Fantastic hostel. The best equipped and maintained I have experienced throughout Latin America. Perfect backpacker ambiance.

I brought my expensive tri bike there and felt safe with my bike locked up on one of the post. The facilities were relatively clean but some nights the rooms were a little hot without A/C. I thought the location was a good one, not too far from touristy areas but in an area where locals lived.
