Hostal does get lively and moves the party to the beach park which is nice.  Music is pretty bad, as many said.  Bathrooms,  especially showers need to be absolutely scrubbed ever once and awhile especially in a tropical humid climate ,Easy to get to, great location. .  Staff isn't overly helpful or kind (lack that common hostel spirit) but eventually...

I ended my trip in Isla Mujeres and poc na was a great hostel to end with! Right on the beach, loads of hammocks and the rooms were comfortable and cool. It seemed pretty sociable but equally you could relax on your own with a book. Free morning yoga was really good, they also have a free spanish lesson and...

One of my favorite places in Mexico! Awesome hostel, cheap and incredible massages on the beach (exclusive low-prices for guests), great chill out hammock area and perfect location. Best to book in advance so you can get a private room - very reasonably priced!

rooms were okay, bathrooms not very clean. Staff okay-ish, like, not unfriendly, but also not very friendly. Always big row in front of reception, so maybe they should hire more staff? Very bad wifi. Dunno how the breakfast is, we overslept XD Premises & beach garden very beautiful, cool life band in the evening. Sooo, all in all: hostel okay,...

Great place with very friendly bilingual staff, chill clientele, and great parties every night. The accommodation is basic but comfortable, and what you'd expect for the cheap prices. Great place to spend a few nights and get to know some new people and they do a fun beach party each night. Don't book if you're after a quiet night's sleep...

This hostel gave me such a good impression after arriving in hectic Cancun. It was easy accessing it from the ferry, maybe a 7 min walk. This oasis has the best vibe. The staff was amazing and helpful. And don't miss the morning yoga! Not the best breakfast, but manageable. Great common area and you will meet many friendly people...

There is so much to do here, they have a pool table, ping pong table, live music,beach volleyball, beach bar, yoga, there was even a magic show which I liked. When you finally want to leave the hostel they also have diving courses available. Not very comfortable beds but it's the cheapest place on the island. This is probably one...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mexicos oldest hostel that still ranks among the countries best. Built in the 1950s it is located on Isla Mujeres, a small Caribbean (7km long) island and is 20min from Cancun by boat. This hostel boasts a restaurant and bar that is open until 11pm, after which the real fun begins at the beach bar until 2.45am. Pocna has access to beach volleyball, games room, movies on demand and bikes for rent. We are close to North Beach, which is Isla Mujeres most beautiful beach and Pocna itself is situated right on its own beach that is perfect for relaxing and taking the sun.This exciting hostel offers free activities such as Yoga everymorning, Spanish classes, juggling and what ever happens to be being taught by one of the many talented people that pass through. If you have the talent and the time of at least one month, you can teach an activity and have your cost of your stay covered.Winter time brings on private parties inside the hostel and also bonfire nights with live music and jamming after. Everynight in there is live music in Pocna and the year also brings many high profile bands to play within the walls of Pocna. Those to date include Los Authentico Decadentes, Los Aguas Aguas, No Te Va a Gustar and La Renga with many more in the future plans. An amazing fun and social hostel. On the backpackers trail and full of international guests. A must to come and visit in Mexico. ... more   less
