Lovely hostel, in downtown, 5 min walk to ADO station, i enjoyed the rooftop terrace and jacuzzi area, although in low season it was quiet still a nice place to stay. Good wifi, A-C, free breakfast and friendly staff, especially Paul the bartender.

Close to the ADO, and it's cheaper to stay here than the Zona Hotelera and far less touristy. It's just a short and cheap bus ride into the Zona from here to hang out on some of the most beautiful beaches and hit the clubs. My dorm had individual fans at the end of each bed and the lockers had...

Really that is all I need to say as they are SO much better than the other hostels in the area. They are a bit pricey at times but if you're prepared to share a double room you can save on the costs a bit. It is so clean, and the breakfasts are AMAZING. The communal facilities are all clean...

This hostel has great rooms and is extremely social with the rooftop bar and spa area. Included breakfast is a great bonus as well. Very helpful staff. The location was disappointing, 15 minute drive to the closest beach, no local bars or clubs nearby and was surrounded by crappy nail salons and Service stations. 50m to ADO bus station. Would...

Having travelled around the world in many styles of accommodation there are very few places we would NEVER go back to. However this is the only one! 1. Showers that you can only use at certain times of the day. We wanted to be up and out early, at 7am, but that wasn't possible until 0800. 2. Showers were dirty,...

I'd certainly recommend Hostel Mundo Joven to anyone passing through Cancun. It's cheap, friendly and located close to bus terminal so serves as a perfect jumping off point to any central america/ Mexico tour. The staff were friendly and helpful staff - they let us check in late after delayed flight. We had a double room - and our room...

I so loved the old hostel on the hotel strip, that I feel sad that this one does not quite stand up to the previously affiliated iyha hostel. It does have a very convenient location to the central bus station, and lockers and decent showers, even a light breakfast included... and a rooftop bar with hammocks and an internet room....

We stayed in a private room. The room was very nice and clean. It's not too loud even if there is a party at the roof top terrace and it's next to one of the main avenues (avenida uxmal). The kitchen and the roof top terrace are very nice. The breakfast here used to be way better (last time stayed...
