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
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..
The vortex of love and understanding. We never wanted to leave wonderland. Have returned several times, never disappointed. Beerpong Olympics, wet and wild, club scene and staff all amazing and fantastic. We love you chef, best mexican meals. Everyone who walks in here will have an amazing time and make friends for life. Thank you all. Yours lovingly Alicia and Jase (best beer pong team ever)

Great place to stay, cheap drinks nice atmosphere and really great staff. Would definitely stay again!
Had a wicked time. Really good hostel. Great people. Gilbert and giulio were awesome. Good laughs. Only moan the shower in my room was average. But apart from that fantastic place. The free dinner every night was very good food. Im so glad i can freely drink with my right hand again. The rules were very cool. Good work guys keep it up.
The food included is absolutely amazing. You cant really cook for yourself, but actually there is no need... Atmosphere fantastic, people friendly, place clean. We are not total party people, so we were concerned, but it was no problem at all. One of the nicest hostels we have stayed (after years of travelling)
The cleaning lady open doors and curtains even if half the dorm is sleeping. The staff offer you shot of tequila that you have to pay... even if you didn't want it or drunk it! The information about the cab from airport to the hostel are wrong probably to sell you their service (prepaid taxi cost 160 pesos)
If you are a party person, THIS IS YOUR PLACE! Staff are nice, bring you out to party, breakfast and dinner included, 5 minutes walk from main bus stop. Probably one of the BEST HOSTEL I have ever stayed in.
