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.

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 res... Read more

My friend and I stayed 3 nights here. We are early 30's and were looking for budget accommodations without a hostel/spring break vibe and we found it perfectly here! It was chill, clean, and convenient. The outdoor shared kitchen was great, and the entire hotel is built around the sand covered courtyard adorned with hammocks. I'd definitely stay here again. My only suggestions for management here would be to address issues with customer service, specifically the following: We came early in the... Read more

Unbeatable location, 2 seconds from the beach and 3 mins from ADO bus terminal; super-helpful staff; lots of space to chill (unless it's raining); clean and shower is hot but bathrooms could do with a bit of refurbishment. Great value for 2 or more people.

We ate here on a recommendation from a friend we met on the beach. She said "get the fish can't go wrong!" So we did...and she was right! By far, the best fish tacos I have ever eaten, ANYWHERE! That's all we ate there, actually ate two orders (8 tacos) in one sitting, that's how good they are! Will be back to this place on our next visit, for sure!

I really enjoy this place, its clean and an Oasis on the beach. The Yoga Center is a short walk by beach. The way this place is set up its easy for travelers to become a community sharing food wine, and fun conversations. The outdoor shared kitchen has everything you need to prepare your own meal. One day the staff "Fabiztlin" collected a small fee and cooked us all an amazing BBQ. The WiFi works great, and the showers are always hot.

We stop in here on a recommendation from folks we had met on the beech and was not a disappointing stop. These are truly the best fish tacos I have ever had. The shrimp tacos were just as good. Wanted to go back but ran out of time will have to wait until next trip to Playa.

Great hostel in the mania that is playa deal carmen. Great location right near the main shops, bars etc and 2 seconds walk from the beach. Lovely rooms and nice clean bathrooms. Social area with hammocks is exactly what you need and a good kitchen. Not only this but it was also super quiet at night!! Great stay!

I stayed at Popul Vuh for 9 nights and it was the best part of my vacation. The staff is so friendly and always willing to help you, but it is a relaxed manner which I really enjoyed. You can have a chat or a beer with Fabian who works there if you like, but you can also just chill by yourself in the hammock and enjoy the silence and the wind blowing in the palm trees. Right across the street there is a restaurant that serves breakfast including drinks for 100 pesos which is really cheap. The ow... Read more
