Hostelworld says:

If you like to drink, eat and make a lot a lot of friends, then look no further. Mandatory drinking games are a regular occurrence at the Quetzal, and a free tequila shot with your dinner may sound like something from a backpacking dream, but here it's just a regular evening activity. If you're looking for a nice hostel close to the main bus terminal, this is the perfect place. According to one past guest, at the Quetzal 'beerpong is not a game, it's a way of life'…

A place where Beer Pong, Kings Cup, Flip Cup and Beer Bongs are a daily ritual.
