Die Unterkunft ist schon etwas heruntergekommen. Mit etwas mehr Einsatz und kleinen Reparaturen kann sie schnell wieder verbessert werden. Im Vergleich zu anderen Hostels in Yucatan ist die Unterkunft im Preisleistungsverhältnis deutlich teurer.

Very friendly and helpful staff, provided info on discounted tours and how to get to the different places I asked about. The budget private room seems like it could use a new coat of paint, the walls and floors seem dingy, maybe the stains in the floor just don't come out? Not much hot water, but letting the room get hot enough makes a cool shower okay. It was great to have a buffet breakfast provided, definitely helped with the budget!

Room 201, the water tab is very bad. When you press it, water is too strong, fly out all the water and make you wet. When unpress, it stop immediately. I really cannot brush my teeth or wash hand.

Me gusto la empatia del staff. Puede mejorar el desayuno que tiene un horario acotado y comienza tarde. En las areas comunes de la terraza falta limpieza y mantenimiento.

Getting to us

Getting to us

From Cancun International Airport take Bus ($66 pesos) or Shared taxi ($17 USD) or Private taxi (from $22 USD).
Alternate Transport
Nobody can beat our location: - 2 mins walking distance from bus station in downtown Cancun to go to and come from the airport Playa del Carmen Tulúm Chichen Itza... anywhere. - Av. Tulúm (3 mins walking distance) where you can take bus R-1 and R-2 to go to the Hotel Zone to the beach and night clubs. * Important: We have an excellent location in downtown Cancun really close to the main avenues and services you'll need but remember the beach is in the Hotel Zone so you'll need to take a cab or a bus to get there. *
