Property Description

Popol Vuh is one of a kind hostel, an oasis in the heart of Playa del Carmen where you can relax and worry only for what you are going to drink and eat during your stay with us.

Our location is unbeatable, a few steps from the beach (literally) with our own private access to it, and a half block from the 5th avenue which is the main tourist corridor.

The kitchen is fully equipped so you can prepare your own food in case you want to save some money. Also, if you are in a mood to make a bbq there is a grill on the courtyard for your delight.

Everything is near from here, the main bus station, the ferry if you want to visit Cozumel for a day, the “colectivos” that take you to Tulum or the cenotes along the corridor “Playa-Tulum”.

After a “rough” day at the beach, relax yourself in the hammocks.

We do our best to keep this place as quiet as possible and this is why Popol Vuh isn’t a party hostel, although you can meet people around the world, drink some beers at the courtyard before heading to the night club for a wild night.

Service daily cleaning.
No parking space.
Latest time to check in: 11:00 pm.

    Basic accommodation but for a really cheap price. Amazing hostel staff, victor was lovely to chat to and really helpful. Kitchen with with pots/pans etc for cooking. Great location, right next to the beach and 5th street. We accidentally booked a room without air con so we were given an extra fan which was really nice. Amazing hostel would recommend and definitely stay again! Thanks guys :)

    Such a perfect location close to everything yet so quiet! Perfect for my partner and I as a base and also the option to cook if we want to safe money. A great kitchen with everything you need, hot showers, fans in the room and lovely staff. So close to the beach!

    Great Location and atmosphere in shaded courtyard with hammocks, big trees & Kitchenette. Be careful if you get a/c or not though the fan made sleeping OK & best to stay used to heat & hang outside in courtyard hammocks

    A very basic single room right next to the beach. As someone who doesn’t host massive parties or like to brag about my travels on social media (@parttimeinteresting for proof), this is everything I could ask for. Right next to the beach, so perfect for running our into the rain to watch storms during hurricane season, and equally close to Fifth Avenue and the ADO tourist station. What more could you ask for at such a low price? Oh, the WiFi works, if that’s your bag. And plus too, great staff.

    We stayed in a private room with AC; humble but clean and everything worked fine. Not a party hostel but still can meet people at the hammocs/common space by the evening; no events planned by staff though. The localtion is GREAT if you're looking for a cheap place just a few steps away from the beach and the ADO bus station. Kitchen facilities definitely need to be improved and cleaner, but still doable...

    A hotel sold as a hostel. Room was good given the location - spot on next to the beach. Although no views for us. Security was super tight. All the gates were locked at night. We almost missed the bus early next morning. We weren't told that one of the keys we got would open it. Very clean given the proximity to the beach. Good location - right next to the main road. Though a bit costly. No breakfast. Friendly staff. Wifi was fast.

    Great location in the center of town and next to the beach. Desk was supposed to reopen at 7:30-8:00 in the morning but we couldn’t wait past 8:30 to see how late the staff would be. No air conditioning just FYI. We were fine with 2 electric fans.
