This place is fantastic , not high end at all but smack bang in the centre of everything and 15 metres to the sea , you get a double storey beach hut with some fans and mosquito nets​ and there's also a communal kitchen so what else could you possibly need. Apparently a hammock garden , well that's covered also

The place was very sweet and relaxed even if in the in the middle of the chaos of Playa del Carmel. The staff is helpful, but when booking make sure you are booking the rooms on the pictures. There is a slightly different name for various types of the rooms. One thing was worth noting is that coconut palms were...

Stayed for one night before moving on. This hostel is a huge missed opportunity. Perfect location, seconds from the beach, 5th Ave., and ADO bus terminal. If this place was demolished and re-built there would be some serious money to be made. Unfortunately, these are incredibly poorly maintained cabanas in need of overhaul. We came back to our room on...

My friend and I stayed 3 nights here. We are early 30's and were looking for budget accommodations without a hostel/spring break vibe and we found it perfectly here! It was chill, clean, and convenient. The outdoor shared kitchen was great, and the entire hotel is built around the sand covered courtyard adorned with hammocks. I'd definitely stay here again....

Unbeatable location, 2 seconds from the beach and 3 mins from ADO bus terminal; super-helpful staff; lots of space to chill (unless it's raining); clean and shower is hot but bathrooms could do with a bit of refurbishment. Great value for 2 or more people.

We ate here on a recommendation from a friend we met on the beach. She said "get the fish tacos...you can't go wrong!" So we did...and she was right! By far, the best fish tacos I have ever eaten, ANYWHERE! That's all we ate there, actually ate two orders (8 tacos) in one sitting, that's how good they are! Will...

I really enjoy this place, its clean and an Oasis on the beach. The Yoga Center is a short walk by beach. The way this place is set up its easy for travelers to become a community sharing food wine, and fun conversations. The outdoor shared kitchen has everything you need to prepare your own meal.

We stop in here on a recommendation from folks we had met on the beech and was not a disappointing stop. These are truly the best fish tacos I have ever had. The shrimp tacos were just as good. Wanted to go back but ran out of time will have to wait until next trip to Playa.

Great hostel in the mania that is playa deal carmen. Great location right near the main shops, bars etc and 2 seconds walk from the beach. Lovely rooms and nice clean bathrooms. Social area with hammocks is exactly what you need and a good kitchen. Not only this but it was also super quiet at night!! Great stay!
