Property Description

“There are no strangers here, only friends we haven’t met.” That’s the vibe you can expect when entering the perfectly shaded, outdoor courtyard at The Yak.

With a combination of the best location, great accommodations, a friendly staff, and lots of awesome things to do—you can’t miss out on The Yak.

Located right in the center of Playa, The Yak is close to everything: 5th Avenue (known for its restaurants and shops), grocery stores like Wal-Mart, 12th Street with all of the bars and nightclubs, and, of course, the beach—but many people pass the day in the hostel lying in the hammocks or chilling on the rooftop terrace.

In The Yak’s courtyard, you will find a 24-hour reception with lots of staff members who are always available to answer your questions, a cool bar with cheap prices, and a café where you can order paninis and coffee.

The Yak was created for travelers, by travelers—so it’s more than just a place to sleep, we try to keep it fun! We have different activities everyday including movie nights, tours to Cenotes, our famous Mojito Lesson, and many more! For those looking to explore the Mayan ruins, we can reserve additional excursions.

The Yak has two communal kitchens, bright/airy dorms, and private rooms with kitchenettes, so there is an option to suit every budget. Many people plan to stay for a few days and end up staying for weeks.

You're guaranteed to leave The Yak with new friends and fond memories, so come be a part of The Yak Family! View House Rules

    A little quiet, but probably normal during off season. The staff is very accommodating and helps you with all the local backpacker tips. One block from the main walking street - 5th avenue, and two blocks from the beach. The private room was big and spacious with its own kitchen - stove, fridge, pots, and pans.

    Best hostel I have ever stayed, good atmosphere and really nice to meet people from all around the world. The staff is really friendly and they makes you feel like home. I really recommend this place to spend your days at Playa Del carmen. Karaoke night is the best.

    The Yak is a great choice for anyone visiting Playa Del Carmen! Although it was fairly quiet when we stayed, the staff were still attentive and put on daily events to keep everyone entertained. The outdoor area is a great chill out spot and has a reasonably priced bar to go with it. I'd definitely stay here again!

    Great location and good atmosphere. It’s a standard hostel. The staff is polite but that’s it. One girl kept answering to me in English even though I was talking to her in Spanish and she is Mexican - which was slightly annoying (I understand Spanish very well). apart from that, all good:)

    I only stayed here one night, so I can’t give a full evaluation, but the hostel was pretty empty while I was there so the environment was pretty slow. The location to all of the nightlife and restaurants was perfect. Just a few short blocks walk. Same to the beach. They did have a fun mojito making class with unlimited mojitos! The outdoor space was really pretty with fun hammocks to swing in. Cool rooftop kitchen and dinner table.
