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.

This was the best hostel I've stayed in. I had an awesome time here and will genuinely miss this place. Met some great people and the staff were awesome too. It was such a friendly and sociable place. The fact the hostel serves breakfast and dinner is simply the icing on the cake. The hostel could have been closer to the beach but that is insignificant compared to how good it is. In fact, as I write this review I'm back at home wishing I was back in Cancun staying that hostel!

This was a great hostel that made me feel very comfortable from the first moment. The food was delicious and the staff friendly and fun. The 5 person girls room with private bathroom was clean and roomy.

The atmosphere at the hostel as very good, we had a lot of fun. Breakfast and dinner were really good, beer was cheap. And the best daiquiris i've ever had:) but i'm pretty sure we caught bed bugs there so the staff might want to check that out! Without the bed bugs i'd recommend the place.

Jeorje was the most amazing staff member i have met at any hostel. The shower was fine. The dorm room was good as had aircon and we got upgraded, thankfully as large dorm looked like a large sweaty mess. It was far from the main club district but close to the ADO I guess. It was fine, I just hated Cancun so my impression of the hostel is tainted too. With the exception of Jeorje, he brought joy to the soul destroying place.

Absolutely fantastic. Booked for 2 nights, stayed for 5. Great location, cheap buses to everywhere. Staff were beyond awesome. Fun loving, helpful and made me feel right at home :) the place was always clean and if there was anything I needed then they would take care of it immediately. Fast wifi, cooked breakfast and dinner were awesome too ( decent portions and solid meals with fruit and vege ). Overall, I had an amazing time. Would highly recommend. Cheers!

Thank you for having me over 3 nights! Very good first time hostel experience. Tequila and beers with everyone for tea each night is a great way to meet people and become more comfortable.

This is a hostel for party goers who like socializing and don't mind people shouting 24/24. Please don't forget to bring with you your earplugs like I did. You have to pay 25 pesos for the locker if you want to keep your valuables in a safe place. There is no internet access except wifi, which seems to be a norm in all Mexican hostels. Apart from that, it's close to Ado bus station and Plaza de las Palapas where you can enjoy real Mexico and have a nice meal.

We are specifically setup for party people who like socializing, hooking up and having a great time. Hostels are not the best option for people wanting to keep to themselves. Lockers are free to use, the $2 would be to buy a lock if you don't have your own. There is a reception computer which guests are welcome to use. All you have to do is ask, but since socializing was too hard i assume asking to use a computer would be too.
