Being told to wait outside the room while a staff member finishes having sex in the room is a great introductory to this review. And rude service, dirty sheets, uncomfortable beds and terrible showers is a good way to finish. No refund on the night I didn't want to stay there, and they attempted to rip me off for water...

We were looking for a cheap place to stay whilst in Cancun for 2 nights. Queztal was just what we were after. We liked that we could play our own music by the pool, stay up all night and enjoyed the entertaining company of the guys working at the hostel. The second night we went to the main strip of...

My partner and I recently stayed 2 nights in this hostel and it was the worst we have ever been in. The staff (all except for 1) did not care at all about the guests, in terms of providing general information or assistance. They were more interested in getting high and/or drunk (and often asking guests to buy them beers)....

We stayed in the hostel with my friend for a few nights while travelling in Mexico. We prolonged our visit in Cancun because of the great atmosphere of the hostel and flexible and chilled staff. The surroundings were clean and comfy, and pool outside offered great opportunities for pool parties, which occurred basically every evening. Great plus was also a...

This was the wrost nights that me and my friend stayed in cancun. Don't plan on sleeping if you come to this hostel. The music goes on all night. After coming back from the beach all we wanted was a hot shower but that was not possible. The toilet was also not flushing ... We had a single room.

Extremely loud party hostel, throughout the day and all hours of the night, disturbing the peace of all their neighbors with no respect or consideration of anyone's rights. Just a cheap place people come to get drunk, smoke and make noise. Most definitely not recommended.

So me and a good friend booked this hostel for 8 nights, we stayed for 4 nights and then we left (no refund). And it is a party- hostel, but 8 nights is way to long for anyone to stay in this hostel. The main reason this hostel exist is to satisfy the party and drinking habits of the people...

This hostel has a great atmosphere and is lots of fun. Having free breakfast and dinner was good and everyone eats together so it's a good way of meeting people. The drinks at the hostel are cheap (25 pesos each) and they give you free shots. They organise nights out for everyone to go together to the strip. The wifi...
