It seems like management doesn't care about upkeep.The jacuzzi didn't have hot water; nor did the showers. One of the hammocks on the roof was broken. The bar was shut down. Many lights were burnt out. This are all things that are simple to fix, but no one cares enough to take the initiative.

The mattresses were covered in plastic, and I was informed after the first night it was due to bed bugs. No obvious garbage cans in the kitchen, which was awkward/unexpectedly disgusting from all my HI experiences. Kitchen was locked until 8am I believe, which made a 6am start awkward. There is limited fridge space, and the sink was small and filled with dirty dishes whenever I went by. Good things: working A/C, lockers in the dorms, staff attempting to help, dorms cleaned at least every 2 days.

Bigger and cleaner kitchen would be nice, and one shower for 10 girls is maybe a little too less.

Das Hostel Mundo Joven ist auf jeden Fall eine praktische und günstige Unterkunft in Cancun und die Dachterasse ist wirklich ganz schön. Das Personal ist auch superfreundlich. Einzig, die Zimmer (Private Room) sind recht karg und laden nicht wirklich zum wohlfühlen ein.

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. *
