Popol vuh is a great place to chill out and enjoy the beach. Its only 30 sec from the beach and 30sec from the shopping street. You can also reach a lot of good local restaurants 2 blocks from there. The rooms are nice and they clean your room everyday. Outside they have a few hammocks where you can read or just relax and cool down from the heat :) There is also an outdoor kitchen with a refrigerator and a stove. Its clean and nice to sit there. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a great time there :)

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 not maintained very well and the coconut fell right next to me when i was opening the door. Very dangerous to stay on the left side of the property as a result.

Room Tip: choose the rooms in the buildings not the huts on the left of the entrance.

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 the first night and our bed was covered in insects. The guy on reception was able to move us fortunately. New room needed re-wiring (like the rest of the place) as well as new door, windows, and detailing between structure and floor. The place made you cringe.

We found a beautiful, spotlessly clean hotel with pool, language school, bar and restaurant for the same price when we returned to Playa del Carmen later in the week.

Owner should invest to improve this place significantly, would definitely reap the rewards.

Stayed: September 2016
