“great for backpackers”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

Clean, centrally located, helpful staff. Would add some more power outlets though and refurbish the showers a bit - some more privacy wouldnt harm anyone :) Wifi works great! Would stay here again for sure.

It's currently 3:40 am and I've woken up with loads of bites all over me. I've been to see the night man on the see if I could change beds and sheets and that was totally fine. I changed beds but same story. When I turned the light on and actually looked at the sheets I found big bed bugs crawling every where. I wouldn't recommend this place at all!!

Hostelito C, Propietario at Hostelito Cozumel, responded to this review, 24 May 2013
Hi Nico, we are really sorry about your experience with the bugs, we want to let you know and our costumers that @Hostelito Cozumel we have a very strict fumigation program, every month a professional company fumigate the whole building, but because of the extreme beach weather and the many visitors that come to this hostel sometimes the bugs come on their lagguage. Anyways we are not looking for excuses and after this experience and to improve our quality we are starting to fumigate up to 3 times a month. Thanks for you comment cause it help us improve.

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?!?
