Sometimes lake water!

Owner Comment (Hide)
The problem with the water was due to a short curcuit caused by the bad weather. We called somebody to come in immediately to fix it and haven't had any problems since.

Nice hostel, the people there is like "party-oriented", but never had noise problems during night. Value for money is good, since breakfast and a (little) dinner are included. The bad thing was about the facilities: in 3 days there, during 2 days we just had no water, and not being able to take a shower after being to the seaside is not that cool. Moreover, just above my bed there was a very noisy airconditioner, had to turn it off, and suffer the heat.

There was no wifi in the outside ensuite rooms and the water pressure from the shower was a bit dodgy. However the staff were helpful and the cook was really great; having two hot meals a day included was great for your travellers staying there!

Room could not be locked. Besides that awesome (!) breakfast and nice staff!

We provide lockers in all the dorms for your valuables and our guests can also always use our safe as well. The private rooms all have keys to the rooms.

Phenomenal atmosphere. Staff were great, and the hostel is so good about getting us to the big clubs/parties. And even if you don't go there's still a good vibe left at the hostel. Breakfast and dinner every day were really good, and it was really fun to sit and eat dinner with everyone else. It's a very social place and fun, but so chill and welcoming - no judgment or pressure if you didn't want to go out or drink. Staff made us feel really safe when we went out. 3 bed private room was a palace

This hostel is exactly as it is described in the description. Party place with great people. I was very nicely surprised by the size of the meal for breakfast and the dinner. I didn't expect that for 12 dollars a night. Nice touch was also the hot water in shower, which is not very common in hostels located in tropical areas.

The hostel was very clean and located outside of the hotel zone, which I loved. I got to mingle with locals and went to a festival that was happening in the plaza a block away. Vegetarian friendly. Nice and understanding staff and owners.

Hey, Just wanted to point out that it is possible to buy a second meal if it's not enough for you - some people eat more than others but usually it's good portions. :)

Awesome hostel, great staff, dinner and breaky every day, not in the main area of cancun which was great so you could go and eat cheap tacos with the locals.

Great hostel! The staff are amazing, made us feel really welcome and part of the group from the start! Definitely a party hostel, but for everyone to get involved! Cheap drinks, dinner and breakfast a great way to meet other travellers! Will be back again!

we really like it, the best point for us was the food, that was really tasty and various. the staff was really friendly and full of energy. It s a party hostel, so they organize a lots of entertainment in the hostel and for the nights to going out. i would surely commended if you like to party, but also if party is not your first reason to stay in cancun it s closed to the bus station connecting you to the beautiful beach and all the cities and sites around. we ll surely come back if in cancun.
