Position is perfect for the bus station but VERY far from the sea. Staff is very helpful, with lots of advice and infos. The roof is fantastic, with jacuzzi, bar, showers, relax area and so on. The double room is very big, but since it's next to the roof, it could be very noisy at night. No lift, so you have to carry your luggage.

centrally located, very friendly and helpful staff, wonderful roof top terrace including bar and whirlpool to hang out. The private rooms are very nicely done. Good restaurants are in walking distance, a laundry service is next door. Breakfast is very basic but ok. Taxi to the ferry terminal to escape Cancun to e.g. isla mujeres is 35 Pesos.

Room Tip: Private rooms are really nice with own bathroom.

We spent one night in mundo joven hostel and we were scared to take our clothes off to sleep because there was many "spots" on the blanket, it was very loud at night, it stinks..really, there is no hot water and before we came here we had to cancel our reservation for 2 nights, i wrote 3 messages to 2 differents e-mail they gave us and i had an answer only 3 days later, so i had to book again because i was worried they would have cancelled our last night here...the only good points are the location near the bus station but far from the beach and the roof top is nice too but the jacuzzi is so dirty i saw no one in it...

I just spent one night here, upon arriving in Cancun. It's only minutes on foot from the main bus station, making it extremely practical. The guy at the reception was friendly and helpful. Dorms are male or female and there were just a few girls in my very large room, which I think had 10 beds. It was a reasonable price. There is a big individual locker next to each dorm bed, but you need to have your own padlock (which I did). Inside each locker is an electrical plug, a wonderful idea if you want to charge batteries, phone or iPad, because you can lock it up while it's charging.

The bathroom was clean though the water in the shower was pretty cold. Not sure if it ever gets warmer.There is a rooftop bar to have a drink or to use WiFi, and there is also a computer room on the roof. It was a friendly crowd of mainly young people. They give people a paper bracelet to wear, I suppose for security reasons. There is breakfast included in the price, but as I had a very early morning bus departure, I did not discover what the breakfast was. There is a supermarket across the street and money changers just near the bus station, so it's very convenient.

I'd recommend this hostel to any budget traveler who wants a practical location to stay short-term.

I stayed here for a few nights in December. Overall the stay was very pleasant and i found it easy to get around Cancun from here. The ADO bus station is just one or two blocks away so you can walk there easily.

There were a few small issues that were dealt with efficiently by the hostel owner. The room rate charged was higher than what i had paid for online, but was rectified. There was no wifi available in the rooms which was not ideal. However, they do have computers to use on the terrace. My room was a private room and was HUGE. i was very impressed in terms of hostel rooms. I had a shared 4 people dorm room the 2nd night, which was ok too. The breakfast provided was good enough to help you start your day. Stephen at the front desk was very patient, friendly and helpful. I am sure he will help you with all your questions :)

I booked a Chichen Itza tour through the hostel at $56 usd but i later found other companies offering it for $30. You might want to shop around before booking.

There is a park nearby which has lots of local stalls where you can wander and eat till you burst! You can get your laundry done next door to the hostel too.

I am sure you will enjoy Cancun as much as i did :)

Room Tip: Private rooms are clean and BIG

We arrived at The hostel with our receipt of booking. We were then told that the Hostel had not received our booking and the hostel was fully booked, and therefore would not have a place to stay. They assured us that they would attempted to find us alternatives which I suppose was the least they could do. They were unsuccessful, however per chance a cancellation freed up a room for us. The room was ok, probably what we were expecting. Bed wasn't very comfortable. There was a pungent odour throughout our room when we got in and the stench never left. Glad we only stayed one night here.
