Great hostel! Perfect location for going to party and they play music until two but the vibe is super chill even on weekends. The rooftop view is stellar and you should definitely try to catch a sunset up there. Two kitchens so there's plenty of room for everyone. They were very helpful with booking tours and directions. Each bed comes with a locker that has a lock already on it! Drinks are really cheap too.

It was the best hostel i ve been in mexico. Accommodation conditions and atmosphere was great. The only thing that disappointed me was the breakfast but overall everything was perfect. Had a great time.. Thank you guys (especially cleaning crew and girls on the reception) for being awesome..

Good party hostel if you like that kind of thing. Much better than their hostel in Bacalar.

Just an example of a perfect hostel! Clean, helpful staff, nice breakfast with fresh fruits, plenty of space in the rooms, two kitchen, epic terrace and a lovely common area to hang out and socialise. Well done Yak!

Nice environment, really good breakfast! It is a party hostel, but in that way easy to get in contact with others.

By far the best hostel I have stayed in! The room an facilities and are top notch but it's the staff and people that make this hostel number 1! Everyone is so friendly and accomidating it's a pleasure to stay. We stayed here not speaking much Spanish but the staff were awesome and helped us to learn along the way! They have different activities on each day and night weather you want to party or relax they give you the full experiance off staying in playa del carmen! much love x X X

This is one of those rare hostels that just hits every note right and somehow happens to attract really awesome people. Incredible atmosphere for meeting people while not being a "party hostel". You can find whatever vibe you're looking for. Definitely my favorite hostel in Latin America.
