This is probably the best hostel I have stayed in in Mexico. The rooms are clean and spacious, as is the communal area and the beautiful pool. The breakfast is plentiful (lots of fresh fruit) and they have live music some nights, salsa classes and cooking classes a couple nights in the week. It may be a simple thing to do but providing a map and a list of what to do and how to do it goes a long way in my book. Stay here!
I didn't have much choice on the site when I chose La Cigana despite the fact that apparently a lot of the hostels were available around town, which was a shame. Ultimately the hostel served its purpose but I just felt that it wasn't as clean as it could have been, it didn't seem that organized and lacked atmosphere somewhat. It didn't help that the water stopped working on the first night either....leagues below the other hostels I've stayed across the country. Good location however...central.
I only stayed a night in Playa del Carmen, but it was a night well spent. Hostel Che is well located and has everything you could need from a hostel in the region. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable of the town and surrounding areas, it was clean, affordable and has all the facilities to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Well worth a visit when in town.
Poc na had been recommended to me again and again whilst travelling and its clear why. Its setting is just perfect, the location is the backpackers equivalent of a honeymoon in the Maldives. It's quite a sizeable hostel so you don't really get that homely, more friendly/social feel that you do with smaller hostels, but its certainly good for both a party and a complete chill out, whichever you prefer (or both of course). The place to stay on Isla Mujeres.
Whilst Cancun wasn't for me, Ka'beh has left me with some fantastic memories. David has created a great hostel over the last four years and one that lives up to the promise of being your home away from home. There's no need for me to describe why I like the hostel so much, in fact I'm not sure if I could anyway, stay there when in Cancun and you'll find out for yourself. Keep up the good work David.
First and foremost, the location is ideal, you can get to most of the major sites and museums with a little walk in either direction, and if you don't like walking, the Hidalgo metro station is just round the corner. I had a room to myself until late in the evening and it was very clean, well aired and spacious...couldn't really ask for much more. The staff on the front desk were all very helpful and the communal areas are nice and chilled. Well worth a stay at the price.
Hostel on 3rd is well worth a stay in San Diego, its a lengthy trip to the beaches if that's your reason for coming to San Diego but a general traveler, it's in an ideal location to see the best of what San Diego has to offer. It's clean, spacious and well equipped, has plenty of bars and restaurants just around the corner and a Ralph's supermarket if you want to shop and cook on a budget.
I really liked the hostel, it was probably the best hostel I've stayed in across the US so I can't really suggest anything. Lot's of space, clean, good location and helpful staff. Can't really ask for much more so keep up the good work is all I can say.
Without doubt, Capitol City Hostel is a great place to stay in DC on a budget. Its 20-30 minutes to the White House by bus and has everything you really need in a hostel. The big plus is that, as you can probably tell from the other reviews, it also has Bill who is really friendly and incredibly helpful. Yes, perhaps it doesn't appear as clean as it could be but it serves its purpose very well and I would gladly revisit. Thanks for your hospitality Bill, greatly appreciated.
Most definitely a party hostel so not really for those wanting to chill as well as party. My room was pretty cramped but then I have little to compare to at this stage in my travels. The location is ideal, practically on the beach and you can catch the SoBe local bus anywhere on South Beach @ 25c pretty much right outside (if you want more than just beach and bars). Nice to have breakfast, lunch and dinner on the house but don't expect culinary excellence. All in all, it served its purpose well.
