I am traveling alone and made friends from around the world. The hostel is well maintained. Reception crew gave me all the indications I needed. Sunday night parties are just awesome. If I come back to Playa I definitely know where I'm staying

This place was clean, well priced and located in the best part of Playa, just short walk from the beach and near the ADO I got to meet so many great people from all over, mainly young people like me. The staff were super nice and attentive as well. The best part is the weekly Sunday party that they have...

We were 4 girls staying at this hostel. We only booked 2 nights but then we changed plans and stayed some days longer because we felt so comfortable in this place. As they did not have space for us,they helped us to find another hostel for one night and gave us a private room for the next night. So we...

The worst part of my whole stay was...

This is the 2nd time I have stayed at Hostel 3B, and it was so nice to visit once again. The location is perfect, a short walking distance from the bus station, main drag and the beach. It was great to see the new bar upstairs on the roof, the guys have done an amazing job with it. The rooms...

Negatives: Dude at the front asked me what part of Mexico I was from? First of all I don't have any Mexican in me, next time ask someone "where you from" if you really want to know. Second I hate when hostels ask for my passport to keep untill I check out, better yet ask for an ID. At the...

I stayed here for the BPM festival, it was amazing, we met lots of people, had a good party on Sunday with the djs and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff is really helpful and the location is simply the best, everything is in a walking distance. Would stay here again, Highly recommended.
