Here, the sea is alive with wildlife and is almost perfect when it comes to shape, color and temperature.We call ourselves the 'Brunela Soldiers'. Soldiers because they were battling for something like freedom. Unfortunately, our beloved Obi Juan is retiring in peace and honor. We can never repay him, but we can do something even bigger!

    Was very surprised at how cool this place actually is. The pool is wonderful and all the common areas are really well kept. The room was clean and spacious and the breakfast was a nice touch. The bed was comfy for some reason we couldn’t get our TV to have a decent picture. Oh well, we were out exploring anyways. Wonderful location. Right on the busy road but walking distance to multiple restaurants and super minis

    We were there right before the high season was about to begin so there wasn't anything going on. It was good because we had the pool table all to ourselves haha. Staff was great, security was really nice and helpful. Pool was closed unfortunately due to a mudslide so idk when that will be back up. Short walk to Playa Carmen which was gorgeous! Great place though, I'd love to see it in high season!

    Amazing hostel, the beds are clean and comfortable, the rooms have an ensuite, the kitchen is a good size, free pool table, free swimming pool on the rooftop, free breakfast and very well priced... the staff are delightful and very welcoming. The art on the walls and the old motorcycle in the ceiling are cool. Probably the best hostel in Santa Teresa. If they had some simple hostel events running they could make it even better

    We chose this property because it had amazing reviews and the pictures looked great. The actually hostel was not nice and he had any issue that you can think of: 1. The shower head had electrical current where it shocked both my partner and I multiple times. This is extremely dangerous in my opinion with running water. 2. The water in our bathroom stopped running the 2nd day that we were there 3. The bathroom light was not working right when we got there and they didn’t fix it until the 3rd night that w
