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.

The hostel was very beautiful, love the rooms, the garden. It was really nice to offer dinner ( i think it's the first time i saw that in a hostel) and it's was also very tasty. The staff was very nice and funny. The only thing i didn't like : the mandatory drinking game. I was here to party of course, but i like drinking at my ryhtm and not beeing forced...

A great place for travellers. The bar and free evening meals are fantastic places to meet people! The staff do a great job to make you have a good time and the breakfasts in the morning were top notch. Would heartily recommend if you are coming to Cancun to party and meet new people.

I flipping loved it in Quetzal! Free breakfast and community dinner; Vanessa, Alex and all the staff are so friendly and helpful - in 10 months backpacking this is one of the places I've actually felt like home. Plus it's in an amazing location of Cancun - close to street food/the bus station/local festivities. I would always stay here if in Mexico!

The hostel is in walking distance from the bus terminal and even though there are no lockers it is a really safe place. It depends on what you want for your stay - this hostel is a party hostel! don't go there if you want to have a quiet stay. Staff is really friendly and helpful, dinner is delicious (free tequilla not so much ;)). A lot of drinking rules but they are a lot of fun. Easily to get in touch with other travellers.

Awesome hostel! Excellent environment, friendly helpful staff. The atmosphere is like no where else, we were 3 australian girls in a group but so many lone travellers and they were having an awesome time- the staff are BEYOND helpful and make everyone feel included and take you out to sick clubs so you get good deals with them too. STAY HERE!

Only stay here if you like to buy loads of drinks from their bar (non stop drinking games the moment you wake up). Also they goto clubs every night with entrance fee of $65-85 US and make you feel like a loser if you don't go. Also we got bitten loads here - bed bugs? The free dinner is good though and helps you get to know everyone at the hostel. The staff were fun but not very helpful with anything else. Would be good to have aircon in the room. Overall we were happy to leave here.

Amazing staff ! The description says party hostel and it lives to it description. Beerpong is not a game, it's a way of live. The atmosphere is great. The food is good but the portions are very small. You won't be full on what they are offering. Good price on the alcohol. It has a good location near the bus station. You can buy groceries at the supermarket which is a few blocks away. The dorms are very comfortable. If you're looking for a good time in Cancun, go there !

This place has an awesome family like atmosphere which is really nice. Everyone eats dinner together every night. Staff are also very helpful, Kelly is Australian so speaks English and is very knowledgable about the area. Downfall was that in the private room the shower was pretty bad only trickled water and was hardly ever hot, toilet blocked and There were also ants everywhere through out the room. Apart from this air con worked well which was desperately needed in that hot weather
