Loved the place!! The only place i will ever stay at in playa del carmen!! This is my second time around and i've tried both the private room and the dorms. Location is the best, staff is the best, owner is the best and this place had the best ambiance! Would stay there over any hostel, hotel or resort!

Best hostel I've ever been. Staff was incredible, the only problem is I can't sleep because people have been having sex in my room every night! Brooks and Luis treated me like family and even took me out with them! Come here! Sunday's are next level.
