Great hostel awesome staff, chilled out vibe, great location so close to the beach! Not the Hilton but not bad! Thanks very much for a good stay!


Had a very relaxing time here. The beach access and the hammocks is what made it worth the price for us.


Staff were extremely approachable and helpful. Their local knowledge was great and they were able to provide options for using local transport and tour options that were half the price of those on the street. A comfortable and clean environment in a great location.

Great value for money. This is not 5 star hotel so dont expect too much. Location is the best you can get. 30 seconds away from beach and 1 minute away from main street. 3 min away from ADO bus station. Hostel closes gates at evening so you feel pretty safe. There is a yard wich had some hammocks, tables and chairs to hangout. There is also open air kitchen wich is pretty well equipped. Rooms are basic. They have fridge and AC. Showers are the best I've seen so far in Mexico. I recommend!


Fabian y Miriam Are great

very nice Hostel, with a nice garden where you can relax in hammocks


Enjoyed our stay here. It's a quiet hostel but very clean. Kitchen is fully equipped. Only downside there's no breakfast included and no hostel activities.


My girlfriend and I stayed for two nights in December 2014 and were very happy here, the location is perfect just by the beach and the rooms were very clean well priced. The best showers we came across in two weeks of travelling Mexico, Belize and Guatemala! Nice friendly staff and if you want a relaxed quite time together then this is perfect away from the bar scene but they're only around the corner for a few drinks. Wifi was good and the hammocks are a perfect place to unwind together.
