“Nice hostel!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Stayed 3 times in this hostel! This place is superclean and most of the staff are very friendly. It has a private swimming pool and a nice sitting area outside. It's very quiet and spacious. The hostel is very close to the ADO bus terminal and walking distance from supermarket, stores, bus to the beach, ... Continental breakfast is free. Towels were available and hot and cold water all the time. There's free wi-fi and some computers free of charge. The kitchen is brand new, but only little supplies were available. There's not much of a backpacker vibe, there's no bar and alcohol is prohibited. But still: we liked our stays here.
PS. We didn't get robbed...

Do not stay at HI Moloch!!!

Good things: Fantastic location, new furniture/outlay, clean

Terrible things: MY LAPTOP AND PROFESSIONAL CAMERA STOLEN AS I SLEPT!!

I had my laptop/camera on charge laying underneath my head as i slept my first night in Cancun. When i woke up they were both gone (with only the adaptors still plugged in to the wall). I spoke to the receptionist who claimed the only other person in teh 6 person room that night was her friend and he checked out about half an hour after i went to sleep in the middle of the night. When i asked her if she found this at all strange she said "it was your fault you didn't lock it up". Whilst this may have been true, upon asking to speak to her supervisor she refused insisting that there was nothing she could do. My friend suggested we go to the local pawn shops and find out if anything turned up. As we left i overheard her laughing with a coworker about how dumb they (she meant us) travellers were and how she was going to call her friend that stole my gear and tell him to hock it outside the area.

I stayed at this hostel for around a week, and the two men who worked at the front desk were wonderful. However thats as far as the good service here goes. Both the women that worked there were not helpful in any regard. They kept changing the amount of my room rate, (essentially stealing my money) regardless of pesos, or dollars. The kitchen was alright, not overly clean and worst off MY CELL PHONE WAS STOLEN BY THE STAFF. how do i know this? i was staying in their four bed dorm for females only, and i was the only person in that room. I locked the front door to the room, left my phone under my pillow with the alarm set (intending to take a nap after my shower) having spent a long day on the beach i went into the bathroom to shower and also locked that door. well somewhere in the 20 mins. i was in the shower the receptionist came in and took my phone. to top it off when i got the police involved she played it all off as if i was some drunk tourist who was out every night untill 5am, saying she had video, etc. and the matter was looked into and she was found to be lying. however the police could not do anything as they dont have cameras in the rooms themselves. so my advice to everyone DONT STAY HERE. Some rooms have bathrooms, some rooms dont, this place is very iffy, and i would never stay there again. The location to ADO bus station is a def. bonus to this hostel but there are many others in the same area, if someone were to stay here i would recommend a private room where you hold the only key. case closed. hope this is helpful and informative.

Room Tip: Just dont stay here. The ONLY bonus to this hostel is the pool, and there are other hostels in Cancu...

I have bad experience with Hostel Moloch, the receptionist stole my money from the reception safe. She wrote different amount of money than I was giving her, the rest she took. When I asked her if she enjoyned the money, she told me it wasn't her, she doesn't need euros, Next time she will take pesos!!! That was her answer!!! Avoid this hotel. Even the safe is not safe! You don't have any key from the room,even a person from the street can come in, because the door is always opened. the only positive is swimming pool (but you can't take even a drink in the glas there) and you don't really need the swimming pool, because the sea is so close.
Another bad thing is, that the lockers in the room are very small it is only the size of school bag. And there is only one bathroom for boys and girls (together)!!! Strange, isn't it?
I wish the others have better experience than me.

Room Tip: for girls - they have also girls dorm only for 4persons and it is with bathroom and wc (the only roo...

HI Moloch is a new hostel/hotel one block from ADO bus station, one block from Parque Palapas and one block from Ave. Tulum to take the R1 Bus for Hotel Zone. The Suites are on the small side but they are super clean, and with great flat TV's and satellite SKY.
There is a pool, nice to have. Also, breakfast is included. Nice lobby with free computers to use, and Wi-Fi. They were not good with towels, one large one per room, but they were nice with everything else.
The Hostel section is a year old, and the suites opened up recently. It is the best deal for the money. They even have free parking. HI Moloch is the best in downtown Cancun no doubt, the best value for the money. They should post pictures of their facilities, they are very good for all kind of travelers.
