    When arrived to playa del Carmen I had a very bad experience, regardless to the "why not" Hostel, which affected my motivation to stay. After meeting the people and the staff I had a repaired experience and eventually found my self staying here (at playa and at the same hostel) for 2 weeks! And the best thing for me about "why not" was the family feeling with all the crew and especially Aldana y Nicolas :)

    Do yourself a favor and visit this hostel when you arrive playa, especially if you're a solo traveler like me. Originally planned to stay for 2 night, and I just kept extending. Beds are wide and the rooms get cleaned everyday. The roof bar is awesome, with great food, games and cheap cocktails. Staff is very helpful, inviting and caring, especially the receptionists nico and Aldy! Would definitely come back in the future, thank you for all the memories and experiences 💞

    Stayed here on two separate occasions now and would recommend it to anyone looking for a guaranteed good time and absolute prime location. The owners are a very friendly group of guys and the staff is welcoming in all aspects. If you are looking for a quiet place to relax, maybe consider another option as this hostel serves a fun backpackers "party" vibe. Have fun ;)
