I've been here twice now and it is still my favorite hostel hands down. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The people who go there are some of the most interesting and amazing travelers I have ever met. Ditch Cancun and come here! You won't want to leave the island trust me!

We had a small double ensuite. Not too clean, but ok for the price. The hostel is very big. Lots of people, many (very) young but also quite a few regular oldtimers. Go here if you like to party (untill 5+ a.m.). Bands every night. Beachbar starting at 23.00. Close to nice beach. Lot of breakfast included. Went to el...

There's a lot going on in this hostel which makes the island a little less dull. Rooms and breakfast are basic but fair for that price. The receptionists were very helpfull, and the diving department was exellent. I'm an experienced diver, for my girlfriend it was her first dive and the diving instructor, Rici, did a very good job in...

One of the best hostels I have been to so far. The rooms are not of the best standard, but it is absolutely more than enough. The staff is wonderful though and the ambient is fantastic. There are two bars, one on the beach area, and every night they throw a beach party with an Argentinian barbeque before that. The...

For travelers or simply those looking to have a fun time with young company, Poc Na is the best place to stay in Isla Mujeres. Hostel is lively, it has its own beach night club is the biggest party place on the island and it is well located with good amenities. We booked a few days advance which meant we...

We had a great lunch on this hostel ++++. Beside hostel they have a restaurant, diving/ snorkel fee yoga and much more. They have a tiny kitchen but the food is amazing, if it is busy you have to wait a bit longer but that must not be a problem the place s fibrent and cool.

We got here at 3pm to check in to our prebooked room. It's now 4pm and still nothing has happened. All they say is they are counting money for a shift change...that can't possibly take this long. After being told it would be another 10 minutes we cracked back after 15 and they just said it could take another 15...

Lots of people, mostly young party people. Hostel is clean and professionally but loveless handled. It lost its charm if once it had one. Live music and venue are nice. After 23:00 it's mostly silent in the hostel (another pro) Wifi only in the entrance and a small part of the bar. Sorry, 2017 wifi repeater are cheap, at least...

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
