I simply loved this hostel. It's an abandoned mall remodeled into a hostel with some stores like grocery store and a hidden bar (I dare you to find it) with an amazing bartender. Juan Gabriel at the front desk took incredible care of me and my friends during my whole stay. If you like to travel the way I do,...

My husband and I got a private room for two nights. The location is perfect for anyone who loves the Cancun strip. However, we booked a long day trip and when we got back the door to our room was open. When we went in, our room was clean but all our bags were moved around. One bag was put...

Perfect place to stay if you want to be close to the beaches and the night clubs. The hostel is not like most other places, but at least you are in the right spot and you can negotiate all the prices for the night clubs and tour, in stead of paying higher prices at the other hostels. There is a...

I was looking for a basic hostel for 1 night in Cancun. I didn't want anything particularly flashy - just economical and with good wifi. Thats exactly what I got at Hostal Mayapan. It's not crazy but the people are nice, its very central and it comes with free breakfast! Would recommend for anyone with similar requirements.

During mid-August, not lot of people staying there. Room was kept clean. A/C running all day and night but does not stay cool enough due to room size is pretty large. Need to bring your own padlock for locker. Towel is available to rent with deposit.

A friend and I stayed at Hostal Mayapan for 3 nights during a recent trip to Cancun. Having been on holiday in California several weeks before, we were looking for something a little less expensive but in a central location, and this came recommended. We stayed in a private room with a bathroom which was very basic at best. While...

Spent three nights at this good value hostel towards the end of July with three other friends. There were certainly many positive aspects to the hostel with its location in la zona hotelera rather than downtown Cancun making for easy access to the picturesque beaches and friendly staff who had no problem with us checking in after midnight. Sleeping and...

The hostel was nice and clean enough, but there was no pillow or sheet to sleep under. The lockers seemed like a good pull would bus them open and because of it being an old mall whenever anyone is talking outside you can hear it. There was music and people drinking until at least 2am and no one seemed to...

Stayed at Mayapan last minute. Checking in at 1 am was no problem. Beds were clean and comfortable. Includes all the basics such as continental breakfast, wifi and towels. Paying $1 extra for a semi-separated four bunk "room" was well worth it for the privacy if you're travelling in a group. Staff were obliging and friendly. Would recommend!

Can't say enough good things about this place. It sits in the middle of a tricked out abandoned shopping mall - remember Dawn of the Dead? Yeah, it's like that but without the zombies trying to eat your brains. The concession stand here totally rocks and the vibe is great. The dorms are great too - kinda like being in...
