Excellent hostel. I wish I found it sooner. Really social area by the pool but you're able to get sleep in the rooms if you need it. Easy access to Cancun and all well organised from the great hostel staff.

Great spot. Comfy dorm beds. Staff super helpful, social environment and easy access to food nearby... but locker/bag security needs a little work - hardly terrible though. Was an issue due to a double booking - was frustrating being downgraded from a twin to a 10 bed dorm but they were cool enough to offer us an open bar all night as compensation. Super helpful during such a sensitive situation. Would stay again.

Free dinner and breakfast was delicious, thank you! Very friendly community. Definitely check out the adjacent local park at night - it's like a night market full of people, local foods, culture, live music, arcades, and kids riding in remote controlled go karts! So fun. Pretty far from the Hotel Zone, which is a huge plus if you are trying to have an authentic experience away from all the white tourists. Lots of wonderful local restaurants nearby with reasonable prices and colorful people.

Lots of partying and chances to meet people (to party with)! You'll have fun if that's what you're there for, although it's more difficult to meet people who are visiting Mexico for other reasons.

Great for prep-party and party in Cancun, free dinner makes it very easy to meet all the people. The only downside: horrible breakfast.

Great location with friendly staff. Party hostel with loud music from early evening until late so avoid if you need sleep! Could be cleaner with better security - anyone could wander in from outside entrance. Breakfast and dinner were basic but appreciated. Good value.

family dinners are cool, good party vibe there. the backpacker staff working there are pretty lame. but overall it's a good place to stay when passing through cancun. close to the ADO station.

Staff were excellent to say the least. Everything from making you feel welcome as soon as you walk in to organising & booking tours, great help. Atmosphere was the best I've experienced in a hostel. Put it this way, two mates & I left our hostel in Playa to come back here for the last two nights it's that good. Definitely recommend 100%

This is the place to be in Cancun!! The beautiful hostel has a nice pool area and a great roof top to hang out any time of the day. If you spend a couple of days at Quetzal you will start to feel home there. The staff seems like a big happy family and interacts a lot with the guests. Every night there is something going on and due to the daily ritual of introducing everyone before dinner people converge pretty fast. I had a great crazy time at Quetzal and recommend it without any hesitation!

Overall a great hostel if you want to have fun in Cancun. Advertised breakfast and dinner is not really enough to feed you for the day, but it doesn't matter since Parque de las Palapas is right next door with its awesome tacos, gringas and marquesitas.

The location is great, staff is very friendly, and breakfast and dinner are included which is a plus. Carlos and Lulu are amazing cooks! I would definitely recommend this place!
