We also have an indoor living room with cable TV and a DVD player if you just want to relax and watch a film. With your stay we offer a good free breakfast. A great way to meet people is over the dinner table so that's why we have fantastic home cooked dinners every night for less than a fiver and a BBQ on most Sundays.

Casa del Shiva is based in a more local, colourful area, slightly away from the mayhem of the very busy center in Playa del Carmen. The center and the beaches are still very easily reached down one straight road which takes less than 10 mins on a bike or bus! (bikes are free to rent at the hostel and buses come every minute from outside!!) So you are still only 10 mins away from paradise Caribbean beaches
You will love it!!
