Great hostel! 6 bed dorms have big beds, large individual lockers with power chargers and bunks are solidly constructed! The bar is great and the courtyard is a great place to chill out or get the party started. Staff are all fun and engaging. Wifi connection could be better but I LOVE the policy of shutting it off in the evenings to get people socialising!
I normally avoid party hostels and went to the Jungle Party, partly at my daughter's suggestion. I was surprised at how friendly and helpful everyone at this hostel was. For a party hostel, the Jungle Party was very well maintained and kept clean, compared with other party hostels at which I've stayed.
When considering booking, remember it is a party hostel so there is music up to around midnight. Unfortunately we had room just outside the bar. Apart from that staff were nice and hostel is generally okay.
My friends and I had a great stay! Kady was especially helpful and Carlo was great fun.
Nice hostel with a really cool atmosphere. We loved the indoor swings, the bean bags and the lit fire in the evenings. Superfriendly staff and good location. The rooms are very simple and smell a bit bad...but they're still pretty clean and alright for sleeping. Really good showers! Great that you can book several different tours and trips via the hostel. Overall a good experience!

Very bad internet, was not working for most of my stay, and they turn it off between 6-10pm every day with the excuse 'buy a drink at the bar'. My bed was a mattress on the floor in the 20 person dorm. It's hot and noisy and everyone is sleeping on mattresses on the floor. Seems to be 1 locker between 2 which is not ideal for solo travelers. 3 tiny toilets and 3 showers with no shelves for soap for the whole hostel. As a long term traveler, I have to say that this was a bad hostel. Staff good
We originally booked 3 beds in the 28 room dorm but decided to change to the 6 bed dorm once we got there. The 28 bed dorm has beds on the floor in the attic. Not a very inviting room. The 6 bed dorm was great though. Lockers with each bunk, clean sheets, warm blanket and clean. The best part of this hostel was the atmosphere and design. The bar has swings, a firepit, bean bags, and nice employees. Definitely a fun place to stay. Make sure to ask Paco about some good places to eat for local food
Had some ignorant people in my room that always kept the door open so the loud music came straight into my room at night times. But nevertheless: Great hostel with great staff! Just didn't like the tab system so much with the pay-all-your-stuff-at-check-out...

Completely over-rated. The 3 nights we were there, there were no 'parties'. We arrived on a night bus from Tikal at 7:30am and were greeted by a spaced out, 'didn't know what she was doing' staff member. After going for breakfast and checking in, all we wanted to do was sleep. I explained my sheets hadn't been changed. They assured me they had....peeled the sheets back to discover male pubes (I'm a girly). Nice. & I was the one made to feel like crap for bringing it up. No breakfast included.
