Quite an old building with not so amazing rooms/bathrooms, however, what made this hostel was the environment, absolute paradise. Location was perfect, staff couldn't have been friendlier, multiple free classes and an amazing night life. Private beach bar only for hostel users was a high light. I made friends with one of the staff who was an acrobat! Very very...

Fun hostel, great for meeting people. Only 2 minutes walk from Playa Norte (a beautiful beach). Large common areas, a games room, loads of hammocks. Only bad points are that the WiFi is pretty dodgy and there is no kitchen to prepare your own food in. You can buy food from the hostel menu but its not very good. There's...

I stayed at this hostel for four nights in December on beautiful Isla Mujeres. The accommodation is basic but functional and decently priced. It had a great, welcoming atmosphere and the central bar area was an excellent place to meet like-minded travelers. It's also a great place for solo travelers. The free entertainment and activities were an excellent idea and...

A great hostel on a very beautiful island! I would recommend to book ahead, we didn´t have a resevation so we had some difficulties to find a space for us: original plan was to camp but it was full so we ended up sleeping in a dorm, no big deal as we were there only one night. The hostel itself...

We spent 4 nights at Poc Na during our time on Isla Mujeres. Really enjoyed the hostel, but it loses a point for the breakfast...with the amount of people paying decent money the breakfast should be better. Positives: Nice crowd; good nightly live music; the area of the hostel is very large; great area for chilling on hammocks during the...

We stayed here for two nights in an 8 bed air conditioned dorm. The hostel has a really good location but we found the atmosphere a bit too intense. We like to go out and party but it felt like a bit too much. It's nice when you have a choice to party or not. The crowd was all really...

I got bed bugs after staying for one night. Not one or two bites but maybe 80-90. The doctor even said they must have an infestation. The front desk gave me a refund and money towards doctors bill which was kind. Stay elsewhere on the island

This is a good bang for your buck party hostel. They have live entertainment every night and a beach party that goes until three am. Also there is a pool table, ping pong table, and nice common area.

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
