    Perfect location, walking distance to all amenities. Staff are super friendly & helpful. Bathrooms are cleaned daily. Good wifi. I felt at home and will stay here again if I return to Cancun. Thank you to the staff for providing interesting company, offering paddle boarding & snorkeling tours, and even sharing meals!

    Hostel located in nice place next to the city center. Everything is close - bus station, shops, very clean, people very friendly and helpful with anything you would need. Cancun is devided in to two parts: zone of hotels next to the beech and city. If you want opportunity to stay not only with tourists - this is the best option (any beach you can easly reach by city bus max 30min).

    Had the most amazing stay at the mermaid hostel. Staff are incredibly kind and friendly. They booked us a tour for the next morning at 11:30pm the night before and woke us up/made us breakfast at 5:30 the next morning. I left my towel by accident when we checked out and a staff member ran down the street to give it back to me :) showers are warm and great location to downtown Cancun. Bus stop close by as well as to ADO bus station! 100 percent recommend :)

    I loved the backyard of the hostel. Super cute and chill atmosphere. Volunteers who work there are not very open, and kind of keep it to themselves. AC in the rooms, kitchen, microwave, and a big fridge. The only suggestion, improve the cleanliness in bedrooms. I would stay again.

    Mermaid Hostel is super cute, but my private room didn't have air conditioning (I was under the impression it did). I had one window in my room propped open with no screen. A mosquito net was included, but it barely fit around the bed and kept creeping up all night long. The whole facility was very hot- I had to leave to try to find someplace cool (July Cancun heat). The indoor area is cute, but again- very hot. The outside area is adorable and was a bit cooler in temperature than my room.
