i felt like i developed scoliosis after sleeping on their terrible mattresses. They had cockroaches. wifi only worked in a small area. breakfast was cereal and toast. plus, the showers did not have warm water. it was so cold i literally just bathed at the beach. these things need to be stated on the website. the staff was nice.

Dirty, bug ridden, shady employees, awful mattresses. The beds are incredibly uncomfortable and painful to sleep on. You can feel every spring in the mattresses and I am covered in bug bites after just one night. The hostel management (males) barge into the rooms all the time for reasons that are unapparent, without knocking or anything. I am a female...

Very poor facilities, beds and rooms for that price. The rooms had more people than advertised, and they added another bed during my stay. This made using the bathrooms really inconvenient. The beds were uncomfortable and lumpy. Moreover, the hostel used to be a mall, and the evidence of that is clear e.g. There are no walls between the main...

It's a very nice hostel in the Centre of the hotel Zone in Cancun. You have a nice atmosphere and clean rooms and facilities and very friendly staff, too! It's a big former Mall that gives you much space with nice seats to relax, and it's close to the beach too, that is just around the corner. Would really recommend...

+ Nice dormitory and big storage for your luggage. But the staff seemed to be confused, when we asked if we could turn the AC on, one of them told us that the AC didn't work, but the morning after, another person/staff(?) walked into our dorm and simply just turned it on (don't know why)... we were also told that...

When I arrived booked day tours for the places I wanted to see while in Cancun. The manager that booked it in for me stuffed it up ruining my holiday. No apology, and offered a 100 peso refund when the tour cost $120 USD, which was my big splurge for my vacation. She had the attitude that because your a...

The rooms were very clean! The hostal itself is in what looks to be an old shopping mall which was cool! The staff was very friendly. The wifi only works in the lobby which is a little inconvenient, but when accessible it was fast! AC comes on 4 hrs day/night, we would just open the window and it would be...

I stayed at Mayapan for 5 days in April 2016. I loved the hostel and don't really have any complaints except that wifi was non-existent in my room and only worked in the lobby areas. Other than that, it's great to meet people as lots of people hang out in the reception area and in front of the hostel, it's...
