“AMAZING!!”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Best Hostel i have ever been to in my entire life! It's clean! It's close to all the bars and restauraunts! It has a rooftop pool! It has a fully staked bar! It has a big screen TV for the sport events and an X-Box just for chillin! The ladies are everywhere everynight and the hosts are really cool guys!!

Dont hesitate, no other hostel is as clean (maid service everyday) and welcoming as 3B.

Thanks guys, made my trip this much better.

Cheers

The hostel is a true backpackers hostel with a nifty bar on the roof top. The owners have had some time to iron out a few kinks that may have been reflected in previous reviews. The hostel is fine. The rooms are clean and the bathrooms sanitary. What more can you ask for on a budget? I would recommend buying or bringing a pair of ear plugs because it will be loud in a shared room. The hostel is geared toward cultivating the party atmosphere so if you're not interested in that you might want to try a different place. The bar hosts different events each night of the week and is a great place to meet people. Check it out if you're in town.

I stayed 3 nights in thr hostel and I was very happy with all the services they offer. The room I stayed in was new and had a problem with the a/c but besides that it was very good. It has a great rooftop and a cool ambient in general. Totally recommended.

If you are backpacking and looking for a fun place to hangout in Playa then this is you. The guy that runs the place is full of beans and has created a backpacker to suit all your needs. The rooms have spacious bunks and a/c. They are cleaned daily and well maintained.

The roof terrace is the highlight. It is vibrant and always has different parties going on. It has a pool that over looks the street and he always has some DJ mixing up a list.

I wanted to give this place 6 stars! Unfortunately I couldn't. Don't wait your time going to anywhere else if you want to have a good time.

The hostel reminded me of some of the ones you see in Europe, chic and new. Its has a nice location two blocks from the water and one block from the main strip, which is nice as to not have crowds around. The rooftop bar is cool, they have plenty of places to lay down and just hangout listening to the music, not to mention that on Fridays and Saturdays they have sushi night, good sushi for a fairly inexpensive price. The staff are super helpful as well, they know a bunch about the area around Playa and if they don't they have a friend that does! Highly recommend staying there.

Room Tip: If you have 3 people traveling with you splurge for the private room, it's only a couple bucks m...
