The additional blanket smelled so bad that we had to keep it on the floor near the door. Music from the nightclub was so booming that we were encouraged to sleep with the A/C on, but that didn't come close to drowning it out. Without the extra blanket, we spent 5 cold, uncomfortable sleepless nights. The location, however, was prime, and it was great to have access to a kitchen. Staff were helpful.

For me too noisy at night. Didnt like the atmosphere. Could be renewed somehow. Good: big beds
We stayed in low season, so despite the bar upstairs it was quite quiet. Hostel world advertise that 2 can share a double for an extra 50pesos, is apparently a misprint and we were overcharged at Chalupa. Kitchen facilities were good, clean and tidy, though your food is not too secure. The pool looked kinda grubby, small dog in it when we arrived. Beds were comfy. Not a bad location, quite far from beach. We hired bikes- hostel doesn't have any for use!! Quite helpful staff.
This hostel is quite far from the main part of town,it's often quite dirty in the bathrooms, the pool is cloudy and gross, and there is very little atmosphere except at night when the music is super loud to entertain very few people on the roof bar. Most of the staff are quite rude, you always have to ask for the aircon to come on, and you can see why most people switch hostels after a night or 2. Not a good place to stay as a solo traveler, good for a couple cos you can share a bed to save $$.
One of the worst breakfast provided by a hostel. It was stale cereal and coffee. The hostel has a pool and a bar upstairs. Not much goes on there. You definitely need to bring your own fun otherwise you will be bored. Location right at the corner to grand cenote and Coba and next to bucks rental and 2 grocery stores. There room for improvement.
