In downtown cancun, staff were nice and friendly. Very young crowd as you can gather from the reviews and description. Lovely room with small balcony and plenty of room. Lots of areas to hangout including a big sun terrace and a nice backyard. Security was really good and the I couldnt really say anything about the place other than it was really well decorated, thought out and looked good as well. Did a trip to Chitzen Itza booked through them that i would recommend. Good area for eating local

This party hostel made my experience in cancun! Defiantly a party hostel. It is in the local centre or cancun (not hotel zone) which was good to see a bit more of the real Mexico. Was cheap and easy to get to the beaches and hotel zone. Food was great, drinks were cheap, staff were super cool and helpful! Beds were comfy, rooms were cleaned everyday. Would 100% recommend this hostel and will be back myself!

I loved staying there (9 days). It's very social, you automatically talk to everyone and have dinner together every night. Good place to party, but also to relax (if you don't mind the loud nights). Food was good, portions rather small. Hot shower always worked and the room was cleaned daily. The staff was fun and very helpful with everything. It's a bit far from the beach, but the location is perfect if you wanna see the more authentic Mexico. Would definitely go back there again!

The best staff ever. If you wanna have a LOT OF fun must search for this place! The best parties and atmosphere ever. The guys helps with everything. About 20 minuts by bus from cocobongo beach. Best breakfast and dinner. The staff usually organize groups for the night clubs, so everybody talks to everybody. I´m missing that place. i was supposed to stay for five nights then I changed my plans and returned from Playa Del Carmen to stays for more 2 days with those guys!

Just hands down the best hostel I've ever stayed at. It's the atmosphere and the staff that are what really make this place so special, I only actually planned to stay for a few days and ended up staying a week! Really gonna miss this place and the people! If you're thinking about it... just book it you won't regret it.

Great fresh breakfast and dinner which is included. Super fun atmosphere in the hostel. The communal dinner is a great way to meet all the other guests at the hostel.

The hostel was really nice and we had a lovely room. Including a good breakfast, dinner and tequila. In a good area with entertainment. However after a mistake and misunderstanding with our room at fault of the hostel the staff became rude, unhelpful and would not accept responsibility resorting to them changing their story. They then asked us to leave late at night as 2 young females with nowhere else to stay because we were upset about the mistake made by them and therefore 'not having fun'!

There was one guy working there who was really nice, the other girls were unhelpful and unfriendly. There was a good atmosphere for partying but absolutely no respect or appreciation for those who didn't want to party and just wanted to sleep. The free breakfast and dinner was really nice, and the rooms were pretty clean but the security was really poor, with the rooms being left open a lot of the time and anyone could walk in off the street.

Party hostel is hardly for sleeping. Security in our house the front door is always locked. Only hostel guests may enter and there are lockers and a safe box for valuables. The hostel and the house were created for entertaining. There is a competitor hostel in Cancun that is not social, made in an office building, feels like a jail try that next time. We prefer to give your bed to a guest who appreciates our concept.

Great vibe with Young folks. You're looking for a Party Place to Start Or end your Trip in Cancun? Then this is the Place to bei my fellows. Good breakfast and Dinner included in the Price. Can get very loud at Nights, but i am sure Some People with big wallets and a tight Stick in their ass can find another quite Place to die. Heebs of Tequila at night, great staff from all over the World and a Party Train which Starts everyday to different places at "Zona Hotelera".
