Awesome hostel! All staff is really nice and helpful, also after check-out. Definitely recommandable!


Had a great stay at Green Monkey.The Staff were the main reason I enjoyed my stay there. They took care me and anyone who stays there. Paddle boarding trips, cenote trips and general information. I would recomend Green Monkey, Mucho. Wil, USA


The hostel was located a bit far from the bus station. The staff wasn't very kind when we arrived, but in general it was ok. The bathroom of our bedroom was dirty. We didn't find enough things to make a good breakfast. Just a piece of bread, water and instant coffee. At least, we hoped a cup of real coffee.

Les pedimos disculpas por como encontraron la habitacion y por como han sido recividas, de haberlo sabido en el momento hubieramos tomado las medidas necesarias. Tambien ya estamos trabajando en brindar un mejor desayuno. Por otra parte esa distancia con la zona meramente centrica les da a nuestro huespedes la posibilad de gozar con un ambiente optimo para su descanzo y tambien seguro. gracias por sus comentarios que nos ayudan a dar un mejor servicio.


real backpacker experience. don't expect luxury, but expect warm welcoming staff that will make you feel so safe and help you with EVERYTHING! We have felt like family here, and gotten all the help that we could wish for.
