Hello fellow travelers - I have been staying at Hostelito every year since 2004. The hostel is centrally located a few blocks from the pier. It is clean, the rooms are spacious and airy, there is an enclosed outdoor deck with sitting area and hammocks, and the hostel staff can help to arrange car / scooter rentals, snorkeling / SCUBA diving, or just provide recommendations on the best beaches and restaurants. I become great friends with the hostel owner over the years and he will go out of his way to ensure that you have a great stay in Cozumel.

I spent 3 nights in Hostelito Cozumel and was really amazing.
- It ´s a very nice Hostal.
- People who work there are very friendly and help us a lot.
- The rooms are very big, clean, hot water, AC.
- There is outside an open kitchen, hamacs, tables for relaxing itself and meeting interesting people.
- Hostelito is in the center of Cozumel.
With my friends, we want to go back to Cozumel because is a beautiful island and we will host again in Hostelito!

Wonderful place in Cozumel! Good location, friendly staff. One of the nicest common spaces we've had in any hostel, with clean kitchen, hammocks, chill-out spaces, etc. Our room (actually the junior suite) was enormous and well worth the $550 pesos - kitchenette, tv, a/c, balcony, many windows with good views. Nicer than most hotel rooms I've stayed in anywhere, particularly for the price.

Go stranded in Cozumel ( watch that last ferry to Playa, people! ) and needed a flop house. This was more than good for the money, heck I'd have just stayed here.

Good for world traveler types, not that great if you're snooty or elderly or anything else. In fact the noise in the morning was pretty bad. Go to sleep early by whatever means you need to do that, but get up early and out, because you will be woken anyway.

Upper deck hammocks nice for an afternoon post diving party with cerveza mas fria!

A little grubby and beds could be better. But what do you want for $35 for a private room, a palace?!?

Every staff member I met at Hostelito was very helpful- got me everything I needed, and if they didn't know the answer (what time the ruins opened), they found out and let me know the following morning.

Howeverrrrrrr, it wasn't the cleanest place.. both of the drains in the kitchen sink were plugged up, and the bathroom showers were clogged with hair.

I see a lot of bed bug complaints, thank god I didn't have any issues with that (and, trust me, I would have known, I have reallllly sensitive skin!). Overall, I'd say it's worth the money. They just need to get their cleanliness in check!!!

Great place
I would rate it as one of the best hostels I have ever stayed, if you want to meet people and divers from all over the world is a great place, the staff is very nice and the prices amazing, there is a commun kitchen and you can save even more cooking you own meals there, great location close to anything you need, dock, bars, restaurants, stores. Clean and the personal is very nice and helpful, you will never feel alone staying there the personal helps you with directions and reccomending places. There are private rooms but I stayed at the the hostel side for over 2 weeks and never had a problem, there are hammacs as well and the locations are nice and quiet if you want to read or chill, you will totally feel like at home, beds are comfortable and the bathrooms clean, only a few steps away from the main plaza and 2 blocks to have a nice walk by the beach.
Love it! Definetily going back to hostelito!!!
