The staff definitely helped make this place a second home for me. Nikki and Andy made me feel welcomed right off the get go and they deserve some praise for their efforts. I didn't get the caretakers name because she only spoke spanish but she was always working very hard and seemed sweet. I enjoyed coming back to a clean bed every night. Sleeping was not an issue here for me. If I were to stay in Cancun again I would come back here 100%. Enjoyed every minute of it.

Couldn't recommend this hostel enough!! If you want to meet people and have a good time this is definitely the right place. Dinner was delicious and everyone eats and drinks together after the tequila shot ritual. Big shout out to Nikki who really kept the party going. Her, Andy and Hugo were so lovely and helpful and made our stay great. Obviously, this is a party hostel so if you're a sleeper or partypooper, probably not the place for you!

Hostel Quetzal is BY FAR the best place to be on earth if you are on vacation and wanna have fun and meet people around the world. The staff is awesome, the atmosphere is excellent.. They really make you get along with others guests on beee pong games, free tequila shots and going out togheter every night. Ive stayed in hostel in over 30 countries, but never found one like this.. PERFECT!

I did not enjoyed my stay in Cancun, but perhaps it's mostly because it's too touristic and americanized... the hostel fits perfectly in there, which is why I was not a fan. The prices for the nights out are way to high for me - I don't even pay that in Canada where a drink costs almost twice as much than in Mexico! Anyway, you really need to be a party animal to appreciate Cancun and this hostel.

This hostel has a great partying atmosphere. Communal dinner makes you meet people even if you don't want it. Don't expect to get much sleep here though. In fairness that's what they say in their description so you know what you're getting into.

Had the private room to myself! Loved it! Breakfast and dinner was good and the local market square was close with cheap food. It was a party hostel and the crazy Australian chicks staying there made sure it was. If you like sleep, don't bother staying. I really enjoyed the experience.

Party hostel, don't stay if you're not joining in! Rooms are average with minimal space, bathrooms are horrendous (what you'd expect in a party hostel though really) . Although the bar, dinner and the arranged clubbing trips were great, the hostel in general had a bit of a seedy feeling and after a few days I wasn't sad to leave for somewhere a bit cleaner.

I will come back just to stay at this Hostel. Andy, Julio, Vanessa, and the rest of the staff were just the best. From helping me coordinate travel arrangements, to making me feel like a VIP they did it all. Love it!

Great staff, nice hostel good breakfast. Its just more or less a party hostel till deep in the morning. Drinking is the main thing to do there. So if u wanna get some rest or sleep this is definitly not the right place. Beach is about 40 min by bus a bit far away but very nice and the center is also not that close. Close to the hostel is a foodcorner for locals with delicious mexican food.

The hostel was ok. Staff are helpful. They just need to stop these games they play where you pay for the drink and when you loose you have to buy more drinks. It gets annoying after a while.
