Property Description

*** a New manager ***

--- making a New vibe ---

You wonder (I know you are) what a new manager in this place could possibly do to make it even better for the guests.

Ummmm, Hmmmm. Champagne breakfasts? Yeah and a limousine chauffeur service too!

Ah, but one second, you don´t need a limosine to get to us because we're only 30 seconds walk from the major city bus station, and it's an international bus station too!

And really, if it wasn't for the vibrant city and nightlife sounds, you would hear the Carribean waves gently slapping against the sand on one of the 4 beaches, 100 metres from our door.

We're the closest thing there is to a city/hippie beach hostel and our guests are hippies mixed with fine, upstanding, city folks. We're laid back, easygoing, and friendly because we want you to relax and let your hair down. We know the cheap places to eat and drink. We know the fashionable places to eat and drink. We're rather talented eaters and drinkers, so you won't go wrong with us.

We have rooms for chicas and rooms for chicas with chicos.

We have Mayan staff, and Mexicans, and the odd Argentinian (and odder Australian) thrown into the mix, because this is where odd Argentinians come to get inspiration, sadly from the Australians. You can pick a cool, comfy bed in our 2 large underground dorms, which are cheap. Or a room upstairs beside our lounge (which closes at midnight so that you can hit the bars or the sack).

If Brazilians and Americans and Mexicans and Italians and Canadians are your thing, well, gosh, this is the place for you. Playa is a multi-cultural city and our hostel is no exception. And dem Aussies, they aren't that bad. Jajaja. You really won't regret sleeping with us.

So, ankle on over and become a Mexican beach hippie... we're gonna make it happen for you!

    My boyfriend and I loved our stay at Guacamundo. The bathrooms were not very clean but other than that we were comfortable and loved the atmosphere. The staff were very welcoming and the entire hostel has a very chill and relaxed vibe. Could not have had a better location, steps from the beach and bus station.

    This was the dirtiest hostel I have ever stayed at. The dorm I stayed in was downstairs and completely dark all hours of the day it felt like a dungeon. The walkway in the room were so narrow it was hard to move through. The beds felt disgusting and fairly certain weren’t cleaned from previous guests. The bathroom was horrific, the toilets had holes through the walls and you could see through into the next. This place is a disaster but the location was good and the wifi was excellent.

    It was really expensive for what it was. It was actually scary. I’ve been in a lot of hostels and this is the top dive hostel of them all. I won’t ever go back. People were puking all around me during the night in their bunks and it smelled like mould and feet. I also didn’t get a pillow? The staff were friendly but it was just a very weird and uncomfortable experience.

    Very dirty hostel. However, if you enjoy smoking cigarettes and drugs in a filthy kitchen all day then it’s perfect. The biggest problem is there’s only a few travelers. The rest of the people “work” there and they are the filthy ones 🤷‍♂️

    Firstly i booked 4 bed room, they put me into 10.. no blankets or pillow covers. In the end i woke up with bed bug bites. Asked to refund the second night and it did not happen! Truly there are many much better hostels in the area.

    Horrible place. Non guests hanging around smoking weed and getting high on substances at all times. Every night the loudest music you can imagine is played and won't ever turn it down until 3 or 4am. Every night i had to ask to turn air conditioning off because it gets freezing in the room and had to wait ages until someone comes. Worst showers ever, you need to pull a chain with one hand to get a little water. Bathroom floor and toilets are disgusting. Breakfast is a joke. A nightmare.
