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.

Great party place, nice rooftop joint. Bar downstairs with excellent staff. Fun rules - party hostel. Expect little sleep. Only bummer was like 30 min from main strip for clubs. Hostel gets you there but find way home when smashed is difficult. I lost wallet lol. Good fun though

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.

Great party spot!

Excellent place for partying, with nice, friendly atmosphere. Be prepared to see parties going all night! Unfortunately, as a result of living in a party house, bathrooms were very dirty.

This place is loose! If you want to party, its probably the best hostel in the world. Their parties are awesome, and atmosphere is amazing. If you don't look too hard, its fairly clean too. If you want to sleep (without passing out) don't stay here.

Stayed here for one week, and then decided to come back for another. This was one of the best hostels I've stayed in. The house rules are sick and so much fun.The free dinner every night is awesome for those on a budget and its a great opportunity to meet new people every night, plus theres the free tequila shot! The staff are awesome and make sure you have an unforgettable time. If you want to party and have the time of your life definitely stay here!!

Even though it's a party hostel it's not too bad, since I anyways always use earplugs when backpacking I didn't have troubles sleeping. The dinner is included in the price and is good, also it's a great opportunity to meet other people from the hostel. I was happy to have ensuite as there weren't many showers and toilets and the later were at times out of order. I don't recommend booking tours from the hostel. The party tour didn't go as planned and the Chichen Itza tour was a complete rip-off.

Hands down the best hostel I have ever stayed at! The staff made it one of the best experiences of my life..
