Great place run by great people. Everyone is really friendly and as a single female travelling alone I felt extremely safe. The hostel also has a roof bar with a pool where they have some really fun nights! BBQ's, pool parties etc. I originally booked for 3 days and then decides to stay for the rest of my month in Playa!

Terrible hostel!! Its not finished yet.Extremely noisy, loud drilling,banging, dust every where. The place is very dark. The dorm was terrible.12 single bank beds with double ones. The room was so cramped, you could not move around without not bumping into something/someone. 1 shower inside the room for 14 people staying in. It took all day to queue for the shower. After everyone showered, the room was so filthy, humid, everything wet. Nice roof top. Overall horrible, stressful hostel!


This hostel is close to the ferry to Cozumel and the ADO station. It is also very close to the beach. This hostel was under construction during my stay which added to the discomfort factor of no ac until 10:00pm. I have no idea why this hostel held so much heat after the sun went down, but it dd. Fortunately, the owner is improving conditions by adding a rooftop area to the hostel, which should make it much better. Also, the bed I had was uber comfortable!!!


I was very, very pleased with Hostel 3B. It is very clean. Sheets are changed each day even if you are staying more than 1 night. A/C in the rooms is on from 10PM to 8AM and easily cools and it is not noisy. There is a large locker for each bed and you can lock the locker. Each bed also has a light and there are outlets. Wifi works great. Those at the desk were extremely helpful. Juan helped me get cabs each day and negotiated the price. Get the breakfast - it is worth it. Location is super!
