Good value for money, and a little sleepy during winter. We had a private room which was a bit dusty (sheets as well), and the shower head in the ladies bathroom did not stay up right. It's a good place to stay with very helpful staff, and in a good location (although grocery shopping is a good 15 minute walk away).

Thanks for taking the time to rate and review us. I can't imagine why the room/sheets would have been dusty, but we would have changed them immediately had you mentioned it to us. And I can't locate a faulty shower head - although it possible someone tightened the nut and fixed it after you used it. I am glad you found us to be helpful, we enjoy working in this industry and Tassie is an easy place to show people around! Thanks for staying.

I booked a 12 bed dorm however it was technically a 24 bed dorm with 6 separate tiny rooms which were not fully partioned from each other. Between 24 people there were a mens and womens bathrooms, the womens having 2 showers and 2 toilets - 1 of each did not lock properly. Each bed has a curtain which is good for keeping out the light (not that there is much - the dorm is poorly lit - but if your in the bed closest to the door its quite noisy with people coming in and out.

Totter's is extremly homey. You are given a personal tour around the hostel, tea and coffee are available all the time, there is a good selection of breakfast (put out the night before so early risers and departers don't miss out) and the staff are very helpful and accommodating. Great stay!

The showers, whilst doing the job, are not as pleasant an experience as they could be. Without circulation, your items just get wet and there is limited places to put down items brought into the bathrooms. Other than that - super swell place to stay, enjoyed in thoroughly!

Big Fish Cozumel Dive Hostel, Cozumel, Mexico

It is a great hostel with a relaxing, earthy atmosphere. Anna is so friendly and helpful, and the price is definitely worth it. It's brand new, so suggestions: extra hammocks, fly screens and a better drinking water system! Thanks for the stay!

We appreciate your comment and suggestions. I would like to share great news with you, we already fixed all these in the hostel. As you know, Cozumel is amongst the best tropical islands in the Caribbean, 95% is covered by jungle, so we have to deal with the special climate and fauna. As you suggested we already set up more hammocks in the garden, the windows and doors have mosquito screens and changed the widely used pump on the water balloons to a faster and more effective tap system.

Great vibe at this hostel. - you pay a little extra than the hostels further back from the beach, but in return ladies have free drinks for an hour every night, the breakfast is amazing and goes for two hours and there is a roof top bar and wading pool with great views! Definitely enjoyed my stay and will be back!

I found a few of the staff members to seem unwelcoming and uninformative, and the floors and restrooms to be unclean and smelly most of the time. The breakfast and dinner - both taste and service - were amazing and a great treat! Love the food stalls around the corner and park across the road.

It was just like hotel facilities with a dorm room lay out. Perfect for a short stay if you have itinerary planned and don't need to make any friends to do something with.
