Yes it is a party hostel. It seems newer and modern. I probably wouldn't return as I'm more for places a bit more chilled. There is a creepy sleazy guy here who works for accommodation, try not be put in his room. Most expensive hostel so far in Mexico.

This was the first hostel I stayed at on my solo travels. All areas were clean, the 8 bed female dorm had huge lockers beside the beds and charging outlets beside the bed, wi fi was excellent in the lobby and on the rooftop and sometimes worked in the room. The rooftop pool and seating areas were great. Great location, near the ADO terminal and beach. Friendly staff, always available. Free purified water. Social atmosphere with bar on the rooftop. AC in the rooms. Would recommend!

Room witj air conditioning, sometimes too cold during the night. Wifi needs an improvement. How water in the shower with great flow. Comfortable beds. Electricity plug near every bed. Big lockers. The toilets were doing annoying noise during my whole stay.

great hostel if you want to party! roof top pool and bar is amazing and has a great atmosphere - cheap drinks! great location and staff/owners. cheap breakfast and dinners can be brought at the hostel. next door to a convenience store. only downside was one room we had, had no aircon and with 8 people was very hot! although some rooms come with aircon. otherwise can't fault it!

Really nice and clean hostel with convenient location. Only con was that wi-fi barely worked and when it did, only in the lobby.

We stayed at 3B hostel for 2 weeks and it's very simple: If you are young and love meeting people (or partying, but this is not mandatory) then 3B is the place for you in Playa. Right next to the beach, this hostel has a great rooftop with a pool. During the day it is better than the beach. During the night they have dj's playing and good deals on drinks (free drinks for ladies monday-saturday from 21 to 22!). Wifi works great on rooftop but sucks downstairs. Breakfast costs 10pesos pr item.

Poor wifi, no free breakfast and the toilets were not clean and smelt like stale urine. I had an issue with my booking (via Hostel World) and had to share a double with my friend for practically the same price as two singles. Location is good, balcony is a nice hangout area and the staff were friendly and helpful.

I was meant to stay a week and ended up staying 2. This hostel couldnt have made traveling alone any easier, from the awesome staff who always tried to make you feel welcome and happy with your stay, to the friendly outgoing people who were staying there. If you're into relaxing on a beautiful beach, five minute walk away. Shopping? Right across the street. Partying? Rooftop bar and pool, meet a bunch of new people and head to the clubs. Awesome Wifi, Big Lockers, Air-con. CANT WAIT TO GO BACK!

Awesome clean hostel! Everything is new, the owners are awesome especially jimmy! The rooftop plays the best music ever! The only downside from my stay was the day I left I asked somebody for some chewing gum and they said no #tripruined

Good location. There is a cool rooftop bar but unfortunately they have placed two rooms also on the rooftop and the bar music doesn't finish until 2am. This would be ok if it was not heavy music but it is LOUD electronic music. All good if you plan to party hard but not if you've just arrived in on a 31 hour flight. The staff told us this warning was written on all booking sites, however, we didn't read it anywhere. Kitchen is a mess. Cheap 2 for 1 drinks.

OVERALL IS ALL RIGHT. NOT THE BEST BUT DOES THE JOB. IS NICE THAT THEY HAVE A POOL AND BAR BUT THE DRINKS ARE NOT THAT GOOD. THE BATHROOMS ARE DIRTY AND THEY DON'T KEEP GOOD CLEANING OF THE PLACE. BREAKFAST IS NOT INCLUDED. YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR IT AND IT'S NOT THAT GOOD. BUT OVERALL IS A GOOD STAY. THEY COOL THING IS THE PEOPLE THAT ARE STAYING THERE. YOU WILL MAKE GOOD FRIENDSHIPS TO SPEND THE DAY WITH THEM.

It's a party hostel, at the rooftop there is a bar with nice music until late night, so if you are looking to rest, this is not your place. Staff is kind, rooms are clean and they have really big lockers. I had a great time there, thank you!

- no comfortable chill out area without load music - the 8 bed room was sticky and no fresh air was able to get in. - when you sleep on the top bunk, you got the cold aircon right next to your head and an additional van, that basically blows the cold air directly into your face - sickness guarantee quite high when sleeping on top bunk Nevertheless + the staff was very friendly + the hostel was quite clean

I had a great time at 3B. Its perfectly located right next to,playacar beach which is by far the best beach in playa and a short walk from 5th av and the party areas. The rooftop bar is amazing, was fun everynight and the staff are all ready friendly and try to get everyone to have a good time. The best was the sunday party though - all day pool party with amazing djs and sweet vibes. Not to be missed.

Bathrooms need to be wiped down throughly, and there should be a rule that not toiletries get kept in the bathroom because there was a heap of stuff stirring there that I never seen get used. Other then that the stuff are more then helpful. They encourage everyone to meet and socialise. The location is perfect!!!!
