Excellent hostel in downtown Cancún! I was a little worried when I was walking through the area to find this place, but I was pleasantly surprised this great hostel placed in a neighborhood. The staff was super friendly and helpful with checking in and getting acquainted with the area. The room was average considering it had so many beds. Great...

Staff are cheerful and friendly enough, but beyond that, its increidlby overpriced for what it offers. I know this is Cancun, but still there are cheaper places offering more like a better breakfast, and it's a small place so the facilities are very limited here in terms of bathrooms etc. Also, they didn't honour the price quoted to me on...

I stayed here for two nights and absolutely loved it. The intimate feeling of the staff and the community were so welcome amidst my travels. I felt safe and comfortable from the moment I arrived. The programming every day really helped to have options and to explore the area. Would definitely stay here with friends or solo anytime!

I really enjoyed my stay here. It's a bit expensive, around $17/night, but that's because Cancún is a rather touristy, therefore pricier spot in Mexico. However, breakfast is included and you have options. Waffles, pancakes (you make them yourself), toast with eggs and chorizo or oatmeal. A staff member also goes with you to the beach everyday and they bring...

Located in downtun Cancun, in walk able distance to the ADO bus station and nearby supermarkets. A long distance from any beach, but a cheap taxi ride away from the ferry to Isla Mujeres, which is a popular day trip amongst the people staying. The rooms and facilities are what you would expect from a low priced hostel. I stayed...

I visited back in June and I was new to solo travel then. When I arrived I immediately felt relief! All the staff and people staying at the hostel were so friendly and nice, you felt included straight away. Each night they have something going on that you can get involved in too - such as pot luck. As the...

Ka'beh hostel is without a doubt one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. The staff is super friendly, quick and helpfull, when not cheeky and humourous, which creates a fun atmosphere and tons of laugher. The hostel is very well- managed and the service is excellent. I was staying around Christmas time and NYE, which is high season...

I think the hostel is relying a bit too heavily on its past achievements or reputation. To wit: breakfast is horrible, rooms are cramped and run down; heating and cooling are poorly regulated; no evidence of a hands on-owner; intermittent intrusions by crazies and beach bums. Yeah location is good but really there are many similar quality hostels and hotels...
