An amazing time with Mama, Alex, and the rest of the crazy staff. We felt right at home, all of our questions were answered, and we got all the inside scoop on the hotel zone, as well as less gringo places. Constant drinking games and family dinner with tequila made it really easy to meet friends from all over, and have more people to go out on the strip. Wouldn't recommend it for people who want a whole lot of sleep or who are not ok with being around a lot drinking. We can't wait to come back.

Place was alright, but maybe a little dirty compared to another place around the corner that was the same price. The was no system for people to get in late at night either - people kept coming home and banging on the door for ages until someone else who was staying there would let them in. Staff were super friendly, but maybe a little too laid back sometimes. Definitely a party hostel though if that's what you're looking for.

I had fun at this hostel and met some other travelers but I thought there would be more people staying here. They organize fun nights out too. You have to take a bus to the beach if you want to go but it's not too bad of a trip. I came alone and had a good time and it isn't expensive.

Had a great time at this place and met some great people. Staff were good and always made the nights out really good fun. Dinners were nice but portions were small but it was induced in the price so you cannot complain! Location was good with great local food available near by and it was only a short walk from ADO station. Bus takes you to the beach/nightlife so getting about is easy.

Great party hostel! Friendly staff that organise group nights out, rooms pretty cramped, but it's a party hostel so it's what you expect!

I firstly ordered 2 night, but later on changed it to 1 night. Apparently because I stayed at the private room, the price didn't changed accordingly, and I was too tiered after the flight to surch for alternative...

Really nice place in a good location. Good to meet people and party. It was surprisingly quiet during my stay, but I had a lot of fun. The night market close by must not be skipped if you're looking for good local food.

Hostel Quetzal is really cute & really fun and everyone was so friendly! It wasn't the cleanest but the price included so much! Breakfast & dinner (both quite good!) and there is a cute patio/yard. You get a shot of tequila with your dinner and it brings everyone together, which is really nice. I stayed in the private room which was large and I really liked it. The rest of the hostel was less appealing to me because of seeming run down/not very clean. But overall, it was very good.

This hostel has that "X factor". It is fun, crazy, great for meeting new people - never a dull moment! Great atmosphere! The staff are helpful, relaxed, and take part in the fun! There are lots of common areas and a bar for meeting new friends. The breakfast and dinner are very decent. The hostel organizes nightly outings to the clubs on the strip including pick up.

be wary of lockers. things were stolen.from.a locked locker. lock your stuff inside your bag and lock.your locker. when reported they were genuine.but not shocked so seems very common. no doors on the dorms so it could literally have been anyone in.the hostel
