    The minute I walked into the hostel, I felt at home. Gabby (along with a few other great people) works the desk and she is so warm and friendly. Actually, I was so pleasantly surprised at how great my experience was. The location is fabulous. It's a block from the beach and lots of restaurants!! Super price for what you get. The terrace is spacious, with some great couches and a pool and a bar (with great parties) .... what else could you ask for? ... HIGHLY RECOMMEND.....

    El hostal en general debería mejorar muchas cosas, los baños en los cuartos compartidos super pequeños y sucios y las regaderas demasiado pequeñas

    Pretty disappointed about this one. Left after 1 day. No atmosphere at all, but I don't fault them for that during corona virus. Room very hot, least uncomfortable hostel pillow I can remember (and I've been to a lot). It's also at the far end of the side of 5th Ave under construction so it's a long walk to most but the bus stop. I would not recommend this hostel.

    The hostel is promising to be a party place but it was honestly not. Maybe the Sunday parties are cool but on other nights it's nothing but loud techno and no real party atmosphere. The rooms were quite dirty, old ripped sheets and squeaky beds. Breakfast was basic. If I have to go back and I am looking for a party I wouldn't go back there.

    Location perfect although the management is questionable to the point of worrying about my own safety. The facility isn’t well maintained and the rooms stinks ass.

    Stayed a night here in playa coming from Tulum... hostel was pretty packed, no atmosphere at all, rooftop was dead. Barebones Central American hostel. No ac in the room but desk fans attached to the ceiling. Bathrooms were eh. Location is right on that strip which was nice. 0 parking if you rented a car. Overall for the price for a bunk not terrible...but maybe Che would be a better move.

    I don’t really have anything good to say about this hostel. Only one tiny bathroom for 12 people, not really any amenities, staff seemed annoyed by everything such as asking where the room is or to get my change the next day when paying in cash. The location however is really nice and the rooftop party was really fun during the night. If i were to come back Id either get a private room downstairs or just go to a different hostel.

    The staff and the owner are friendly but the atmosphere is weird. Not a party place loads of 40+ year old who somehow seem lost in life. Rooms are tiny and not clean. The rooftop is quite sick tho.
