“Filthy and noisy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014 via mobile

There are plenty of nice hostels in Playa, but this isn't one of them. Absolutely filthy and the rooms are dingy and crowded. There's no good common area and the bar upstairs is a joke- they play incredibly loud music until very late at night which can be heard in all corners of the hostel and doesn't allow people to have a conversation, yet the bar tends to be completely empty most of the time! Bizarre. It is trying hard to be a party hostel but not succeeding particularly well.

On the flip side, the staff were all pretty nice and helpful!

I would avoid staying here when there are so many better options nearby.

Stayed here for one night, good location. The staff seemed nice and helpful at the time. The only thing that killed the experience for me was that I gave some of my belongings to reception to clean and didn't get all of my personal items back. I have since emailed the owner and the hostel but haven't heard anything back. Such a shame for this to happen so I don't think I'll be staying here again!

Really comfortable place to meet people (better to share room as the 3beds suit is inside of a shared room and it's not worth it) like that you can meet more people, free toasts, eggs and coffee information breakfast and pasta at the night!
Really good location and workers, noisy as any other in playa del Carmen. Nice beds, nice environment, nice pizza and BBQ parties! You will end up going out with everyone there. I will go back! Quality prize.

Not very service minded... We first got there after hours of driving... Nobody was at the reception so we went further in.. All of a sudden a man jumped over, looked drunk, accusing us on breaking in bc we were trying to get further in to find somebody to help us...
Overall, awful place just by the service and first impression...
Avoid at all cost...

Hostel Che is a good hostel with a lot to offer. Breakfast is very good - you cook it for yourself which is nice. You can eat as much as you want. The staff is really nice and friendly, 24 reception. Few things: while I was there, some people didn't take care of their stuff and some thing got stolen - so just be careful. Beds in the girls dorm are not recommended, but the rest is great. If you want a trip to Cenotas with snorkeling ask for Alex. Highly recommended!!!

I was forced to spend a night in Playa del Carmen and left with Che as the only alternative. It was horrible from the moment I arrived to the moment I left. No one was serviceminded, only "partyminded". It was loud, messy, dirty and poorly maintained.
Didn´t like Playa del Carmen, didn´t like Che. Will never go back!

Won´t repeat but only agree 100% with the detailed review of ErinH876.
