The beach bar out the back is great but that's it. Rooms are unbelievably hot. Staff are not very friendly. They had people playing a keyboard like Ross in friends. Drinks are weak. Asked to strengthen slightly and the guy said only if a tip. They kind of have you be the balls as its one of the only hostels...

Only hostel to stay at on Isla Mujeres! Mean beach party every night, cheapest diving at reception too. We stayed in Private rooms because it was just about as cheap as 2x dorm room, free drinks when you check in

Has a beach bar at the hostel beach in the evenings as well as live music. Cheap food & drinks inc free drinking water - Staff sometimes quite rude especially the kitchen staff, rooms and...

This hostel is good for the parties but can also be quiet if you want. The music goes on until 3-4am but its not a big deal. Close to the beach and the food is pretty cheap and tasty. The hostel can arrange golf buggys at a good price and they offer decent entertainment. Wifi could be better but not...

Really enjoyed Poc Na. We had a private room which was basic but adequate. However it was extremely hot despite having two fans. Shower was also very temperamental. Staff weren't particularly friendly and breakfast is pretty basic but ok (coffee, 1 hard boiled egg, 4 pieces of toast, 1 piece of fruit). No water is provided in the evening which...

Stayed at this hostel for a couple of nights in a 4 bedroom with aircon. Great vibe at this hostel, great place to meet people. Yoga in the morning, beach volleyball in the afternoon and party at their own beach bar in the evenings. This area also has hammocks! Breakfast is very basic, wifi only at certain spots in the...

I've now stayed here twice and I absolutely love it! It's pretty much the only hostel on the island so if you're looking for cheap accommodation, this is the one. I've stayed in both dorms and private rooms, both of which are fine but I don't spend much time in them! Breakfast is included which is toast, an egg and...

We got luck and had a 8 person dorm with AC in it, others who have stayed said they did not have AC and it made the stay unpleasant. The beach bar is fun and away from the rooms if you want to have an early night. The location is amazing right on the beach ☺️.

Pretty decent hostel with good facilities. Includes breakfast and water refills and has nice chill out areas with hammocks on the beach. Has a good beach bar which is very lively, but is away from the rooms if you want an early night. We had a private room which had 3 fans in it but it was still absolutely boiling...

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
