“Very pleasend place for spend hollidays”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2013

I slept in this hostel 1 night in private room. I was so surprised because of very clean kitchen, room and restroom and really calm place during the night. Owners of hostel-Zuzka and Michal are friendly and open to people lives there and try when are people interested in, make freetime activities together. I travell a lot and it was one from the most friendly places for accomodation, witch I have ever visited.

Now that i have time to review the hostels that truly deserve mentioning and recommending, i have to say that this is a place that we would definitely go back again.

(+)
Staff were friendly and they try to build a friendly rapport towards their guests. You feel relaxed.
I loved their coffee!
Hammocks
Not too far from a major grocery store, laundry service and a cheap but authentic mexican eatery.

I just have to say that they have cramped mixed dorm, i think a bit too many beds. But its not a deal breakers specially when its not filled up.

There were odd and entertaining individuals that were their main guests during our stay. They added to the flavor of the place.
This place was CLEAN... we heard not so good thing from the other guests staying at the other hostels and they transferred to this hostel instead.

We liked the place so much we stayed an extra day.

We stayed here for 7 nights
Everything that you expect from a decent hostel is here: nice atmosphere, nice clean kitchen, super quiet dorms, walking distance to/from the beach, bus, supermarket, restaurants, great hammocks and Great Music, very friendly and chilled staff. Suzi & Michael are very informative on all things playa. Great spot

We stayed in Tres Mundos for only two nights ... unfortunately. We didnt have much time to stay longer as we would love to. This was the best hostel we stayed induring our whole trip in Mexico. The Slovakian couple Zuzka and Mišo who are running this hostel are very friendly (we instantly felt like at home), they also have lots of good tips for you what to do around Playa del Carmen. The rooms are clean as well as kitchen and other shared places like small terrace, roof terrace etc. We loved the colours, great music, excellent pizza night, cold drink and great chat. We would recommend this hostel to everyone ... I mean to real travellers:) dont expect breakfast in a bed ... its a hostel ... but they do have breakfast for free:) And wifi internet and hammocks and ... we just loved this place:) Hope to come back soon! Good luck guys, you are doing a great job!

I stayed one week in this hostel and it was wonderful time for me. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I like there many colours and relax in the hammock. Exciting was BBQ on the roof terrace with music. The kitchen and also the room was clean. The hostel is not far from the beach. I can reccomend this accomodation to everyone.

I know hostels can't be held to the same standards as 5 star hotels but this place was pretty ridiculous. I know you're paying for a cheap bed but you can't let go of all you're standards. When my husband and I arrived we were led up to our room past a dirty kitchen and to a room which we shared with a man who seemed to think pants were optional. If you can't keep your boxers on then pay for the single sex dorms. It's just common courtesy.

I will say the location was good; only 4 or 5 blocks from the beach, but this fact was dulled by a few other factors. There was no where to lock up your things and the front desk blasted reggae music 18 hours a day.

All in all a person could do a lot better.

, Manager at Tres Mundos Hostel, responded to this review, 8 July 2012
Dear reviewer, I'm sorry, but we cannot be held responsable for a dressing habbit of your dorm mate, it has nothing to do with a cuality of services or hostel in general, as you could have met him anywhere else. Also, unless he is molesting you, he is free to dress the way he choose, and i don't remember you complainig about it either.
Neighter I remember you complaining about our music, blasting is a pretty strong word for our ambiental micro-speakers, I know I cannot satisfy everybody, but most of our guests want a bit of music, I can't turn it off just for one person, who doesn't even express his dislike.
Yes, our cheapest dorms (the one you booked) doesn't have lockers yet, however we offer to keep your valuables safe in the reception, but we do have dorms with lockers, I could have moved you, again, you didn't say it.
Our kichen is clean most of the time, I'm sorry that you found it dirty and for the fact that the way to your dorm led throught the kitchen.
I promise we will try to do it better.
Happy traveling!

We are really glad that we found this lovely place. Zuzanne and Michel created in less then 1 year the perfect hostel for us.
Everything that we expect from a good hostel is here: nice atmosphere, good clean kitchen, tranquillo dorms and privates, walking distance from the beach, bus, supermarket, restaurants…, beautiful paintings on the walls, relaxing hammocks and Music, friendly staff, nice people around, pleasant activities (footbal and volleybal on the beach, yoga,pizza night,…) You see…this is the place to go! Viva Tres Mundos !!
We only planned to stay one night, but easely we ended up staying five! And we will come back…soon !!
