I had to find a place to stay for my last night in Mexico and I stumbled across this place online. SO glad I did...great location, close to ADO and city buses to check out the city a bit. First impression is big for me and the staff was great from the time I walked in the door til the next morning when I left. Roof top bar was awesome!! Relaxing atmosphere, clean and great drinks, Paul is awesome! Rooms were spacious and the beds were great....would not hesitate to stay here again.

We stayed in a private room. The room was very nice and clean. It's not too loud even if there is a party at the roof top terrace and it's next to one of the main avenues (avenida uxmal). The kitchen and the roof top terrace are very nice. The breakfast here used to be way better (last time stayed here 2 years ago) and also the staff was nicer. The problem here seemed to be, that many of the workes were working there in exchange of a accomodation, which is a nice way to travel but also they didn't seem to be very into helping the customers. The two girls making the breakfast were more talking whith each other and smoking (inside the kitchen) than checking if there was still some food left at the breakfast (supposed to be a buffet). Also the bar staff where more into partying and getting drunk themselfs than providing nice time to the hostel guests. Would recommend to people that want to party but not to people that want to chill get help from the staff. Also good place if u just use cancun as a transit city 'cos the hostel is just few minutes walk away from the ADO bus terminal.

We only spend one night in Cancun and we are very happy that we decided to stay at this Hostel. The staff was very nice, the rooftop bar was great and the room was huge and clean.
It is located in a great area, just a couple of minutes from Parque de las Palapas where you can get great street food!

This is a good hostel for Mexico, Its close to the bus stop, making going up and down the coast easy. Breakfast was nice, fruit was also offered which was a bonus. It was all nice, except one thing kind of bothered me. There was next to no one staying here, we saw about 15 people all together over both nights, and I'm pretty sure a few of them worked there. It seemed that they shoved all the females into the one room, which was about 12 beds or so which was a pain because the girls that seemed to live there had there stuff everywhere and i literally had these girls clothes hanging all around and on my bed and had to step over and move there things to get to my space. it was pretty packed. It really wouldn't have hurt to break the girls up a bit alt east into two rooms. Other than that the it was good, The staff were really nice and helpful and let us store our bags for as long as we wanted which was really good because we had winter clothes for the end of our trip that we didn't want to lug around for the week, so we left it there and took a bus down to tulum. That was a major bonus because noone else would do it for us and they did for free!

Best Hostel I stayed at in Mexico! This is how hostels should be!

Pros
- Super helpful staff: Angel was a legend set up a bunch of last minute tours and gave me some great advice on local eats
- Clean: Cleaning staff came through every day
- Great upstairs bar: Great rooftop bar with hammocks and a jacuzzi for meeting other travellers
- Other: Good lockers (make sure you bring your own lock) and strong internet (quick enough for Viber calls home)

Cons
- No downsides! Like a said best hostel I stayed at in Mexico.

Highly recommended particular if travelling alone

Only a 5 minute walk from the ADO bus station, Mundo Joven delivered much more than I expected. The helpful and friendly staff checked us in even though we didn't have cash, which was the only way to pay, and allowed us to put our bags in our room before going to the bank machine. We stayed in a private room with ensuite bath, which was exceptionally clean and looked recently redone. The room had a decent mattress, two TVs, a couch, AC, and a large window that opened, overlooking the street. There's also a rooftop patio with a bar, where they serve free breakfast. You will also find hammocks, a hot tub, and free wifi as well as three computers for guest use. It might not the quietest place you could stay, but its an excellent hotel and I would stay there again.
