    I stayed at akumal in august 2021 and came back this March bc I loved it so much. Akumal is super close to the beach and cool bars etc. but also quite & calm so you get a good night sleep. The stuff is just amazing, super organized and a good time to hang out with. They also really go all out to make you feel comfortable and even find solutions if the hostel is fully booked. Everything is very clean and has a great vibe. The cafe in the hostel offers great food and often live entertainment. ♥️

    Really enjoyed our stay at akumal. The staff were so accommodating, letting us put an extra mattress in the private room and letting us keep our bags in the hostel for a couple of nights at no cost! It’s my second time staying here and will hopefully be back. The hostel is nice and very chill, great location and secure. Thanks again!

    The nicest hostel staff we’ve met so far. Really nice and let us keep our bags there for a couple days after we messed up our travel to San cristobal. Great location in la punta only a couple minutes walk to the beach and right by the shops and cafes and Bars. Really nice social atmosphere and good kitchen facilities. Would definitely stay again. Always staff knocking about in the reception so feels very secure.

    The location is absolutely perfect, right at La Punta but a little towards the end so at night it is quiet and good to sleep. The cafe next to the hostel serves really good food and drinks and is a nice place to have a breakfast. I thought the dorms were quite worn down, with the ceiling coming off and walls being quite dirty. I was missing a bit of atmosphere in the hostel, it all felt quite distant. The staff was nice but nothing out of the ordinary.

    For the price paid expected a bit better The room is okish and has balcony and toilet but was not very clean and looks a bit shady compared with other spots in La Punta The bar and the free filtered water were great to have and the staff is very welcoming every time they see you but there was not much social time we had with other guests.
