    Loved my stay here, ended up staying longer than I planned. Staff are lovely, the place is kept clean and the WiFi is as good as you can expect for a beach hostel on the outskirts of Mexico. Fantastic place, would happily come back

    Loved my stay at Cult Wild! All I needed was a bed and a place to keep my bags. Cilt Wild was perfect for this. Great staff, great area to stay. Sayulita is beautiful!

    The stay was actually good, it was so confy except for the fact there was no water at the shower and toilet. I was said there was no water because of a problem at Sayulita but i asked more people if the had water at their hostel because of the problem and they said there was no problem. So, for having water at the hostel there were some huge buckets of water refill where you could grab some.

    Hostel is run by non-local/mexican volunteers, which is a pity; lacks a little vibe; the manager was never there (too busy managing other hostel); no hot water, few days without coffee, yes eggs/tortillas for self serve breakfast. There is one big dark, stuffy warehouse-style room with 36+ beds (3-level bunk beds) that needs cleaning and organising. 5min walk to beach, 10min walk to city centre. Cheap bed to sleep.

    If you can pay a bit more for your hostel than I highly recommend doing that. It’s OK at best. It promised breakfast but there was nothing there in the morning even when I asked they said they didn’t know what I was talking about. The rooms are hot and muggy; very hard to sleep in. They overcharged me for my room and when I called them out on it they said I did pay that amount!!! The bathrooms are stinky and there is no where to sit and hangout. Not a good way to start my backpacking trip . :(

    Very dirty. Facilities would be great if it wasn’t for the cleaning situation. There was no water throughout our stay. Staff blamed water distribution, but other places in town seemed to have water just fine. 3 days without water (for drinking, cooking, toilets, everything). The room is fine, quite silent, despite having 42 beds. Otherwise, quite alright for a short budget stay.

    The Hostel had no Water. So you couldnt shower and not go to toilet. The whole place smelled like s***. The only good thing was the big dorm was more or less quiet to sleep. But without water it's horrible. And they have this problem always so don't book this hostel

    Scam warning! The 'staff' will take your money and lie to your face. They boast high security, luxurious amenities, and the cheapest beds. Those are all lies. There is no reception/bar. There are 6 toilets that have not been flushed or cleaned in weeks. The 'hot showers' do not work. The kitchen is on the roof, right next to the s***y toilets. They admit they can afford water, but if they do, 'everyone will use it'. There is no mention of a refund or a discount. This place is a health hazard.
