    A few of the people were friendly; had a wonderful time talking with 2 strangers as we watched a football game and then 'Cinderella Man'. The noise at night, the cigarette smoke blowing in from the patio, and the front door, where they sit and huff and puff. The night lights are shut off, and one cold break their neck on the down stairs. I took a wicked fall - 9 people in bunks; as I writhed on the floor, not one got out of their bed to help. So much for the 'Me Generation' - low lives, self serving, and selfish. As they say birds of a feather. Bottom feeders made multiple trips to the Continental Breakfast. If you feel destined to visit the limited offering, go after the vultures make their first pass. Cold showers beat none.

    In a good location. Walmart is literally across the street and there is an oxxo even closer. Nice big room to socialise. If you plan to sleep this certainly isn't the place for you. I didn't get to sleep before 2.30am the duration of my stay

    Pleasant laid back atmosphere . Good facilities for the price. Close to beach...3 blocks. Pity the pool too small to swim in!

    This hostel is great. Located in the heart of Playa Del Carmen, close to beach, shops, restaurants and across the road from Walmart. Very cheap, the hostel is separated for women and men which is really nice, showers are clean, dorms are ok with fans are A/C. The breakfast is very basic but it will do.
