    Staying in the jungle was the highlight of my trip to Palenque. Hearing the wildlife is an expensive I’ll never forget. I really liked the restaurant. They had vegetarian options, Happy Hour and great service. I also like the laundry a area and Lira if clotheslines for drying,

    Amazing spot just by the jungle and archaeological area- take a wonder in their gardens and see what animals you stumble across. Pool is very useful for escaping the humidity of Palenque. Nice little restaurant.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Kin Balam. It was beautifully located in the jungle and sometimes you could see monkeys and other wildlife there which was so cool. We had a little problem during our stay but the staff solved that problem perfectly and took us very serious, so that was really nice. I would definitely recommend to stay at this plays!

    Nice pool and cabanas ! You are realy in the jungle and can see some animals. I wouldn't recommand taking tours at the hostel as they are 100$m more expensive than others and are really only driving + food.

    Nice hostel to stay in with very comfy beds, nice and hot showers and clean facilities overall. Also, great location as it is right across from el Panchan; a restaurant with great food and live music every weekend! When staying at el Panchan it is hard to sleep due to the music/guests, but Kin Balam is just far enough to be able to sleep peacefully yet enjoy the restaurant and entertainment with a

    The pool was amazing and we loved our stay here. There was so much wildlife (monkeys, agoutis, birds, lizards) that you could just spend a day watching them. The overall rating of 7 only reflects the lack of atmosphere but you can find something more lively just across the road at Don Muchos Restaurant where we went every night for a reasonable priced meal and live music. Only complaint is although there was a kitchen, someone stole our pasta in the middle of the night before our 10 hour bus ride across the

    Overall the hostel was good, the location is Nice, the pool is good and the rooms are fine. However you have to pay for literally everything that you want: water refills, lockers on the day you leave and even if you want them to call a taxi for you they let you pay for it. Moreover they “ forgot” that we had paid a deposit and had to argue for 10 minutes with them to get the deposit back.

    the hostel is very expensive for what you get. the location is amazing, but that’s the only reason i would stay here. the cabanas are super small, just like the common kitchen. they charge extra for everything. it is beautiful, there are monkeys in the garden and the pool is nice.

    Overall, it’s a nice place to stay. Keep in mind that you have to pay extra for all additional services (like spending the day there after C/O, or refilling your water bottle). I stayed in a dorm that was 5 minutes walking from the rest of the property, which was impractical for going to the pool or just being close to basically everything inside the hostel. The guy who offers tours in front of the hotel (Romeo) is great and very helpful! Palenque itself is beautiful and so worthy to visit!

    This is not really a hostel, more of a hotel that happens to have a few dorm rooms. Most people I saw seemed to be traveling in large groups of friends or family, so it was hard to meet people. Dorm rooms are small and you have to go to a different building for the bathrooms. But the location truly is amazing! In the jungle with howler monkeys in the trees by the pool. The staff were helpful too.
