    Nice location in downtown Cancun, simple basic dorms (don’t book here if designer dorms and privacy curtains are your thing), friendly and welcoming staff, communal spaces perfect for hanging out and meeting people. The atmosphere is social, but it’s not a party hostel. It’s the kind of place that attracts more travelers than vacationers or party peeps. Met some really cool people and had great conversations in my 2 days here. p.s. The pups are absolute darlings :)

    Overall the hostel is great for the price, the bathroom on the first floor was a little bit dirty and the shower curtain definitely needs to be replaced, the bathrooms on the 2nd floor were clean and with good light. The location is good if you are with friends or 1 more person, but I would not recommend this place for a woman traveling by herself.

    Nice little hostel. Fairly small but with everything you need. We were in the room at the front so music and noise from outside was very loud late into the night, but it didnt bother us too much.

    Unfortunately I didn’t like my stay at the hostel. The atmosphere was non-existent and I didn’t feel comfortable.

    Could be a nice hostel. But the facilities were dirty… no soap at the sinks in the bathroom, very small rooms, beds kind of dirty, madras so old that I basically could feel the bed underneath. Only 1 key for the entire dorm which should be left in the door the entire time

    The hostel overall was not clean, they have to change the sinks, their dated and do not work, they did not have a locker available for me in the room. It was difficult to differentiate between guests and their staff, the girl they had at reception when I arrived was very nice tho, and their location is ok. I guess this is what you should expect for an $8-$10 hostel in Cancun.

    Not a great hostel, I got woken up in the middle of the night and was asked if someone was sleeping in the bottom bunk.... Dude I was asleep. They don't turn on the air unless you ask and I thought it was just out of order. The people made me feel like i wasn't welcome, there was not any warmth in their connection to me. The internet was also terrible with a capital T. The good things are that I met a few nice travelers and the local scene is fine for 1 day or 2. However I won't return.
