This hostel is at the southern end of the 'happening' part of Playa. The best part of this place is the social activity in the evening - haven't witnessed similar stuff at most other places. They get you up there (open air terrace) by offering a free welcome drink and then you wouldn't want to leave. You'll find people from...

I stayed at this hotel with 3 other girls and we didn't like it at all. The rooms are tight and smells so bad that is hard to brief, the bathrooms were always dirty and smells urine even with just girls using it. The only positive think it's the location, its a really good location and close to everything (grossery,...

We had an amazing stay at this hostel! We were lucky enough to be there on election weekend and got both the usual Sunday pool party and another one on the Monday too! Such a great time!! Playa is a party town and this is your ideal base! The rooftop bar/pool area is lovely and good fun in the evening!...

I've been traveling for the past 6 months and I've been to so mamy hostels. This one is the best by far. It's the proper definition of a party hostel. They got a great rooftop with a pool. Every night there is a beer pong, free shot, changing sufficient and cheap dinners and so on. The room are cleaned on...

Great hostel to meet fellow travellers. Any advice on things to do then Ask for Javier, he is the man! Other staff were amazing too. Gave us great advice for our whale diving trip and cenote spotting. Room was basic but did the trick! If you're expecting anything other than a party hostel then look elsewhere, but if you want...

Great hostel, great parties, good people and bar staff know how to keep the party going. If you need anything the reception staff are more than helpful. Even when highly intoxicated. The chef at the pool parties is great, meals are delicious and great value. Highly recommended

Staff were very friendly and helpful, also if your looking to party every night this is the place to be. Great location, easy access to 5th Street. Rooms are very hot, not enough fans and the aircon doesn't work most of the time, they also only turn it on late at night. Bathrooms are very gross, our room flooded twice...

Reading this “good-bad review” makes me even happier that I decided to run downstairs in the middle of my Engagement party to personally try to help with this leak.

I fell in love with this place. Perfect location in Playa del Carmen, close to the beach, 5 avenida, bus station and collectivo. Modern structure and very very clean. The rooftop has a pool and comfortable couches/tables where people meet to enjoy breakfast/sunlight/happy hour. The Sunday night party is super cool with the best people in Playa and really really...
