This was my first time staying at a hostel and I have to say it was an amazing experience :-) first of all the location was perfect because it was literally in the heart of the street of the center of Playa del Carmen. Right where all the restaurants, shops and the disco's are located. The hostel itself was like an enclosed jungle, even with a pool, very clean, very friendly staff and other guests. The room was very clean and modern and the air conditioning cooled the room quickly. I didn't get a chance to eat the complimentary breakfast because I stayed out too late dancing at the disco's but the communal kitchen was clean and the other guests were respectful of the space. Even after the breakfast was over the staff let me use the coffee machine to brew my own coffee. I will definitely stay this hostel if I come back to Playa del Carmen! I highly highly recommend it!!
