Hostel really is all about the staff. Chris in particular is fantastic. One of those guys that make a hostel. The hostel itself is very good. Facilities are great etc. Everything is clean & works superbly. Negatives: hostels generally are located miles away from the action in hotel zone. This is just a feature of cancun .... It's all about the resorts & big hotels. Regular busses though. Also.... No bar. Can bring drinks in but I always think a hostel has to have a bar. Great stay nonetheless

Sooo many good things to say about this hostel :) Awesome staff! Great rooms, great bathrooms. I really liked staying with Ka'beh and would recommend it to everybody who is into backpacking, parties and good conversations. Great for meeting people!

awesome hostel, stayed there for about 4 nights and they had good events every night, people always around and friendly, good rules, clean, strong AC. only downside was that the AC was a bit too powerful and the room smelled like BO sometimes but they put in scent stuff and the place was always kept clean. staff were awesome, very friendly. definitely worth the money.

A really nice hostel with clean bathrooms, an common area and nice and staff. The only negative thing was that the dorm rooms had a bad smell, maybe like cat urine or something, which was not that pleasant.

Hey there!... Thanks for the positive comments. =) We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us! Regarding the smell you're describing: the days you were here, we had a massive storm, and the smell is that of the humidity all that water created. We have eliminated the smell now, so 'everything is awesome' again =D. Thanks again and happy travels! Hostel Ka'beh

Fantastic stay at hostel ka'beh. 2 nights turned into 4. Incredibly helpful and friendly staff. So many activities could be organised for you around Cancun. The whale shark swim was definitely a highlight, great atmosphere and chill out space with hammocks. Bathroom facilities were plentiful and very clean. The neighbourhood was really funky and there were many budget eats and drinks to be had at the very close at hand parque de palapas. A great suburb that really felt like local neighbourhood.

The best staff that I've ever seen. Movie night, guacamole night, barbecue night, tours, company to the clubs. Really enjoyed my 5 nights there. Totally recommended!!

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.
