This hostel is really nothing to write home about, but that's true of Cancun overall (unless you're exclusively interested in drinking, or are staying at a swanky beach resort, ie. not in the seedy Centro, where this is). Breakfast is pathetic, they shouldn't even bother. The place smells moldy and the smaller rooms feel claustrophobic (opt for the bigger dorm if you stay). They try too hard to sell you tours/nightlife packages. Pros are nice, clean bathrooms and a pleasant outdoor common area.

Hello! I'm sorry the Hostel + real Cancun didn't live up to your beach-resort, all-inclusive standards, + I do apologize if our attempts to bring you into the fun + activities were too strong. Our intention is to live up to our job + make sure everyone is aware of the things that are worth doing in the region (apparently things you didn't do). It's odd that you'd think our 5 full-breakfast options weren't big enough. We’ll make sure to air-out the room you were in. Hostel Ka'beh

The staff were great! Location is good, they have a TV/Netflix. Needs more cowbell though.

Really traveller friendly hostel. Well set out and in downtown Cancun which is easily transferable to the beaches and hotel zone. Will organise tours and etc for good prices. Lots of friendly travellers pass through. Thanks for a great stay.

Clean. Friendly and helpful staff, located right next to the plaza in the town, great location. cheap, good food nearby. much more authentic than zona hotelera. was hoping for less of a party vibe being so far from the clubs, but not necessarily so. still, its quiet at night with A/C and comfortable beds. simple breakfast. coffee 24/7. kitchen available. loud music and only public space was mostly used as a smoking area.

Spacious and clean bath- and bedrooms. The mattresses were covered in foil to protect them, which I find a bit uncomfortable. I love that you can make your breakfast any time of the day and the dirt cheap and free get-togethers at the hostel.

Very nice hostel for meeting other people. Small with only about 25 beds but good as everyone gets to know everyone. Staff make a good effort to get people socialising with nightly activities. A bit pricey for a hostel in downtown.

Love this place! Apart from big comfy bunks, great showers and clean kitchen and bathrooms, Hostel Ka'beh has the best staff and such a laid-back, welcoming atmosphere. I'll be back:)

Made the top of the list as the best hostel I satayed. It really feels like home as advertised, the staff are the coolest, nicest people you'll ever meet. Most nights you either have free food or free drinks, and activities, games and stuff, such fun! Makes you want to stay in the hostel all day. Also they take you to best parties and hook you up with tickets to the clubs and excursions. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

This was quite an amazing hostel experience. Currrently the number one hostel I've ever stayed at. Every night they have a group activity thrown by Kris who is amazing fun and has a unique ability to get group involvement. The hostel has free drinking several nights a week, free breakfast, and occasionally other food. Kris, James, stefani, and the rest of the staff were friendly, fun and helpful. Met a lot of awesome people here this past week! Cheers!

This hostel is amazing. The staff are welcoming, friendly and caring. The party atmosphere is constant and exciting. There are always games to play, drinks to have, and amazing people to talk to. The hammocks are the best place to sleep off the hangover. They have it all, from tickets to all the best clubs, to tours of the ruins. And they ensure a good time is had by all. If in Cancun, Hostel Ka'beh is the place to be.

Fun nightlife and events. Close to bus stop, restaurants, and shops. Staff is also really helpful. Nice amenities, and a pretty clean place.
