The cleaning lady open doors and curtains even if half the dorm is sleeping. The staff offer you shot of tequila that you have to pay... even if you didn't want it or drunk it! The information about the cab from airport to the hostel are wrong probably to sell you their service (prepaid taxi cost 160 pesos)

If you are a party person, THIS IS YOUR PLACE! Staff are nice, bring you out to party, breakfast and dinner included, 5 minutes walk from main bus stop. Probably one of the BEST HOSTEL I have ever stayed in.

I really enjoyed my time in this hostel, the staff were friendly and kept a great atmosphere in the place. The free dinner was delicious, the tequila ritual fun, and beer pong was great (team kiwi!). I would definitely recommend this hostel, good people and good vibes. Clean, tidy, and airconditioned at night time which is great cos Cancun is hot and sticky! Thanks hostel quetzal, see you next time!

We absolutely loved our stay here! It's a fun, social hostel with a party vibe but also a place you can relax. Vanessa and Alex were so helpful and welcoming, and all the other staff were great too. We only had two nights booked but extended our stay immediately. A cooked breakfast and dinner is included, and they organise transport and tickets to all the clubs down in the hotel zone. We will definitely stay here again!

The lady who runs the hotel is really friendly and will make sure your stay is worthwhile. Highly recommend it for travelers who are on a tight budget and don't mind sharing a room.

Good hostel close to the ADO bus station & R1 bus to the beach. Free breakfast & dinner were great, free tequila shot...not so much. Drinking game can be a bit annoying, but if you're only staying a night or two in Cancun this is a good place to stay

Breakfast and dinner is included and really tasty. Hostelstaff prepars it for you! Easy to meet travellers in the garden for going out. Close to an area with a stage and sometimes there is a concert for free. Funny hostel rules (Only drinking with the left hand / You are not allowed to say the number between 9 and 11 and so on 😉) - Negative effects of alcohol (Vomiting) - Hard to find other travellers to spend the day with.. (People usually only stay for a few days or want to relax)

Great hostel if you want to party non stop. Not so great if you want to get some sleep.

Good location for the bus terminal but quite far from town. Really friendly staff, great party hostel, clean rooms and good value for money with dinner included. We had such a good time and would definitely come back to party in cancun with everyone again. Definitely recommend anyone who likes to party to stay here.

We stayed in a private double room in the first elevated floor, which was certainly very clean and nicely decorated, furnished and ventilated. I noticed it was poorly insulated though, which made it hard to sleep with people making a lot of noise (understandably- up to some degree) in the garden right below our room.

Great hostel if you are traveling by yourself or even with friends, really good relaxed environment even for a party hostel, if you like to drink and party and have fun, this is the hostel. They have family dinner which is a great way to get to know everyone. Again it's a party hostel so be prepared for the set drinking rules they have in place which can be annoying but also very fun , would definitely go back there again on the future .

Super party hostel. Food was excellent. Great place to meet people from all around the world. Wish it was cleaner and smelled better though. Kinda far beaches, but the R1 bus takes you for 10 pesos. ;)

Had a great stay here. The staff make it so easy for everyone to meet each other, by doing the nightly family dinner and games etc. Definitely don't go for the mixed dorm if you want a good nights sleep though! If you want to meet loads of people and get your party on, this is the place. Staff are super cool, especially Vanessa the mega babe! :)

The atmosphere at this hostel can't be beaten. If you want to party, this is the place to stay. We stopped here for the final night of our trip and I was sad we couldn't stay longer.
