Property Description

Why Not Rooftop is a brand new party hostel in the heart of Playa Del Carmen. We are one block from the beach right on Playa's 5th Avenue amongst the best bars & restaurants in town.

Relax in our rooftop swimming pool with a cocktail or five in hand, overlooking all the 5th avenue shenanigans below.

Our pod-style bunks are big, clean, and comfy as hell. Don't worry, we've got ensuite bathrooms in every single room to wash away your sins.

For all you foodies out there, our very own restaurant HANGRY is now open. We got your back with healthy smoothie bowls, smashed avo on toast for the hipsters, ice cold beers & bigass burgers, while slangin' wood fired pizzas all day.

Our Motto is WHY NOT, party harder, live louder, adventure more, and most importantly sleep later... we won't kick you out at 10am.

So Why Not join us now to rave, rest, repeat to the moon.

Avoid Tulum in general. Bacalar is much nicer

Don’t stay here if you want to sleep at night. The music from the bar is so loud, even if the bar area is empty, that earplugs won’t block it. If they give you a room on the street because it’s further from the bar, the noise from the street is just as loud. The kitchen is disgusting; no one washes their dishes and there’s no counter to work. No cups or glasses.

Definitely one of the best hostels I've stayed at. If you're looking to party in Mexico (and why wouldn't u be?) Def stay here. Rooftop bar is to die for, the bunks are built into the walls, location is right on the main strip with all the bars, shopping and a block to the beach. Cameron, the manager, joined us on a few excursions and absolutely made our trip very special. He and zion were very welcoming and answered all of our touristy questions. The entire staff make this place so amazing!!!
