We were staying in a private room with a shower and it didn't work properly. It was far from the beach and need to take a bus for an hour or so to get there. Overall, it was a good experience however.


The most friendly welcome to a hostel ever. Asked me if I was hungry and wanted food before even asking for money etc to check in. AC very welcome in the room. Good amount of space and lockers. All very clean and good brekkie and drinks. Yes, plastic covers on mattress but keeps it clean. Definitely recommend.


The staff is amazing and the food so yummy! It's cheap and the value for money is great. It is a bit hard to find though and the rooms are quite small and stuffy.


Hostel was okay, there was no hot water but to be honest in the heat that was a blessing. They are very friendly and always willing to help! Felt safe there, lockers were secure and they provide breakfast AND dinner which was awesome. Would recommend for a stop over in cancun town, wouldn't say it's homely enough to stay long term.

Hola, gracias para el comentario, pero el agua caliente está, solo se necesita mover el botón, si lo pusieron en frío para la regadera eléctrica, o esperar 2 minutos que sale caliente en la con calentador.


From what we heard and saw this is by far the best hostel for atmosphere, value for money and just generally in the downtown Cancun area. Really clean, staff are great. Free breakfast AND dinner. Heaps of hangout space and always something going on. Only suggestions guys is you need more bathrooms. Other than that def stay here...


This hostel is truly a wonderful place. Everything is done by the staff to create a warm ambiance and to bring people together. We loved it!

Thank you so much!


The people that Run this hostel are very nice. But the place have nô soul, its a run down concrete building, whit tastless deco, dirty toilet and shower. For a cheap laiover, why not !


a very modern hostel on backstreet away from the madness of the hotel district, this place has it all. very communal feel. breakfast is awesome, we had pancakes and then eggs and toast on the 2nd day and more often than not, the owner is generous enough to cook you dinner as well. only two problems with this place, there aren't enough bathrooms for the number of guests and we weren't able to stay longer because we really wanted to :) thank you orquedias!!


Very good value, great breakfast and dinner included. Exceptionally clean. The furnishings in the private rooms are quite good, but a closet or a place to hang clothes would be nice.


I stayed for over 2 weeks, and enjoyed it inmensely. The place is quite big, has a great vibe, but definitely the best part has got to be the staff, who will always make you feel at home and welcome; they make the difference! The free dinners offered to all the guests in one long big table also add to the general friendly vibe. They ended up being like my family away from home. Thanks!


It was a last day stop over in cancun before flying off home so I only needed a private room to stay the night. It was clean and had everything that was needed. The hostel helped me book a taxi to the airport at 5am. All over great :-)


I absolutely loved the atmosphere and the staff here. The location is in downtown which is perfect as the hotel zone is way too touristic and boring. The breakfast and dinner were incredible.


Came in the evening, and although the large crowd at the long dining tables can be intimidating, just jump in and chat with your neighbor and you'll feel at home (if you're an extrovert). Fun to listen to the Italian family that owns it chat away during the day and dinner. :-) Friendly staff - Hermise knows all about Chichen Itza! Ask him and he'll tell you more than the guide on the tour will! Easy to get to and close to serious Mexican food: cheap and fantastic!


This place was amazing! Super friendly staff, delicious food included, and great atmosphere. Stay here for sure!

Good breakfast. Cold water under shower or none water in the evening. Nice place for the once who prefer long noisy parties.


Staff were very helpful and friendly. Social hostel in a good location


Great hostel with great staff!


free and really good dinner -no hot showers


Great place to stay! Not only very cheap but also get a cooked breakfast and cooked evening meal! Staff are all really friendly and help to maintain a great atmosphere. Also fantastic location if you're wanting to stay downtown!


I loved staying in this hostel ! It had a wonderful chill atmosphere. My friend and I really liked the hammock hang out area. Also, a wonderful spot near the ADO bus terminal. Nothing to complain about other than the occasional lines for using the bathrooms.
