the hostel has such a good energy! the staff nice and helpful, in the bar you can have a very good time and meet everyone on the dinner they offer every evening


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.

good to party, if you wanna sleep, dont come here. the bathroom of 12 mixed bed dorm has no private at all, sometimes hot water doesnt work.


An objective review. Plus points: clean, good location, breakfast


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!!
