I stayed for 3 nights. The bathrooms were really dirty, the bath 'mat' (a folded up towel) looked like it had never been washed. My room was right next to the bar which played loud 'music' until at least 2am. It sounds like i was sleeping in the bar. The pizza night was really good and they do have air... More

Stayed with my travel mates at hostel Che for three nights. First night we met cool people at the hostel right away (cool bar and social athmosphere) and went out to experience the great playa deal Carmen nightlife. All good. The next day, exhausted from the other night we wanted to have a relaxed stay but that was impossible. What... More

The Hostel was clean and was very organized. The staff were very friendly and always offered to help make any plans around the area. It is located in a great location which is walking distance to all of the nightlife and restaurants. They also have a bar in the hostel which offers drinks at great prices!

If you're sensitive to noise, it's not for you. However, if you like meeting people, go on cheap arranged trips, use free bicycles, and more cool offerings to people who stay more than one night, it's a great place. The staff are mostly young and cool. The rooms are clean, and there are parties on the roof every night. Good... More

Typical hostel that offers all you would expect if your a frequent user of hostels. Security is good, staff helpful and friendly and the roof top bar a good place for cheap drinks and to meet other travellers. The bar gets busy but i would not go as far as to call it a party hostel. Food offers are frequent... More

This place is hands down the worst place I have ever stayed..... So loud any time of day, huge parties in the bar that go till the small hours. I would not recommend if you want any sleep at all. Staff don't seem to really care much about anything. Would not recommend

50$/night = 12 beds dorm room, REALLY loud at any time of the day or night. Only 1 bathroom/toilet for everyone. So almost always busy and dirty. No control on the freezing air conditioning. Great location : 5 minutes walking from the beach, near restaurants.

I can see Hostel Che being a good option if you're only in Playa to party and if the only time you're planning on sleeping is passed out during the day. Hostel Che let me down for two main reasons - the bed and the attitude of the staff. First, I was put in a top bunk a foot away... More

Loved the stay here. Homely and very clean rooms. Air con too cold. Wifi excellent. Very friendly and welcoming staff and guests. Very central location and lots of social activities each night if you are travelling solo to encourage mingling. Bar is loud. Don't come if you don't want to party.
