Nice Hostel in Playa del Carmen but a bit far away from town. You definitely need a car to go there and you should check the address. Google Maps was wrong so we needed hours to find it – no street signs in this area and the street is just a gravel path. The host wasn't the nicest person. All other places we've stayed and traveled along people were really, really nice and friendly. So for us a reason not to stay again or to recommend.
The hostel is very charming with lots of architectural details ! It is situated in a quiet neighbourhood .The owners are very welcoming and helpful. The hostel is very difficult to find on your own as there is no sign on the house and no street name/number on many of the streets/avenues. There is no restaurant, no lounge and no TV as said in the facilities list on Hostelworld's description of the hostel.
Perfect place if you want to get a good night-sleep! We always took taxis into the city for 30-50 pesos depending where in the city. Rooms are romantic and private. Annick is very accommodating and nice. The breakfast was always delicious ! This is not for you if you are looking to party all night every nite. but if you want to enjoy the Mexican Riviera by day, and have a relax and romantic atmosphere, Casa Kam Balam is the best!
