Property Description

One of Lonely Planet’s top budget choices since 2009, Kabeh believes in slow travel & enjoying everything Cancun has to offer: Beaches, Adventure, Tacos, Parties & Hammocks!

With Cancun's best location, Ka’beh is a Hostel built & run by passionate solo travelers with over eight years’ experience giving travelers the time of their lives! Staying with us means making our kitchen your workshop, making our hammocks your happiness, & allowing our shaded arches to become your memories; it means making Ka’beh your Home Away from Home in our little corner of paradise!

At Hostel Ka'beh we believe in slow travel: No Checkout time & no breakfast time, it’s that simple. You're on vacation! Why get up early if you don’t want to? Why wake up early for breakfast if you don’t have to? Why stress about a checkout time? Relax! You're at home, your home away from home! (seriously!)

(PLEASE NOTE: There is a 2-night minimum for HW bookings. If you want to stay for just one night, just drop by. We'll definitely find a way to accommodate you!)

At Ka'beh, our goal has always been to be true to what a Hostel should be. We’re an affordable option looking to offer globetrotters a high-value experience during their stay with us at their home away from home in Cancun. Fellow travelers and staff are the friends and family you didn't know you had, and the Hostel has everything you could possibly need while traveling, but couldn't pack.

Our Hostel is changing traveler’s views of Cancun, one person at a time; during the day, the Hostel maintains a relaxing atmosphere: the kind that helps you plan for a long day exploring Mayan ruins or the environment where you can feel comfortable kicking back in our awesome hammocks, doing absolutely nothing without a drop of guilt. Every evening, our courtyard plays host to our famously social vibe, helping you meet your future travel buddy, or getting to know your next dance partner. No matter the time of year, who your room-mates are, or where they’re from: the one guarantee is that memories will be made here, and we’ll do our best to make sure they’re some of the best on your trip!

The Hostel building itself was designed in the Mexican 'Hacienda' architectural style. The building has a beautiful facade with huge wooden doors, and amazing tile work. Our bathrooms are NOT stalls, but real, home sized bathrooms. All of our thick wooden bunks were designed and hand made locally.

Things to Note

19% TAXES not included in your rates.

We’re a pet friendly Hostel. We have a medium-sized dog and a cat on premises. The dog never goes inside the building, but loves to follow you around town, and while the cat should never go in the dorms, she’s a stubborn one. If you have a severe allergy or fear of either, this may not be the ideal Hostel for you.

Note that while breakfast is included in the price, and you can have it at any time, it’s prepared by the person that knows you best: you!

For everyone’s security, you are required to possess & present a valid passport upon checkin. Exceptions will only be made in the presence of a valid police report.

We have a 48-hour cancelation policy.

Children under the age of 14 are not permitted at the Hostel. Children under the age of 18 may only stay in private rooms (or a dorm if booked completely by their party) and must be accompanied by an adult.

Credit cards are accepted, but payments are in local currency and will include a 5% surcharge.

This property maintains a two-night minimum via HW. Booking for two nights and canceling one will invalidate your reservation.

You may check-in at any time after 7:15am. If the bed or room you have booked is available, we will gladly assign it to you immediately. If it is not available, you will be allowed to access all facilities, and as soon as your bed is available, we will notify you.
Note that if you are arriving after midnight, your booking must have your arrival time and be made for the night before the ‘real’ date of arrival. (So, if you are arriving at 2am on the ‘actual’ day of the 15th, be sure your booking says 02:00hr for the night of the _14th_ )

“Non-Refundable Bookings”
A Non-Refundable booking may be charged in full at any time after the booking has been confirmed and will be considered non-refundable in its entirety. Note that these bookings will be charged in local currency as explained above in “Exchange Rates” and a 5% credit card transaction surcharge will still apply.

Cancellation Policy

Deposit Only rates

This property has a 2 day cancellation policy. Failure to cancel within this time will result in a cancellation charge equal to the first night of your stay

Non-refundable rates

Your booking is non-refundable. If you choose to cancel your booking, or in the case of a no-show, you will still be charged the full cost of your booking.

Latest Review

" This has been the best hostel we've stayed at in South America. It's very laid back and hassle free. It's particularly good to not have a set time for breakfast nor to check out making it really convenient. The atmosphere is awesome. It's sociable yet you can chill out in your room if you need to A big thank you to Chris for going out his way, several times, to make sure we enjoyed our stay here and helping us to draw up our itinerary for the rest of our trip "
