Excelent place, good kitchen, helpful staff, good vibes.
A/C was only on during night as electricity costs a lot in Mexico. And this is a cheap hostel. You want 24/7 AC, you go to a hotel and pay more for it. In the dorm there was a big fan cooling the air all the time. I had no problem having some siesta sleep during daytime.
I as a vegetarian was very happy about the "no meat" rule in the kitchen that I used everyday.
Pool was fixed, cleaned and filled with clean water during my stay but I did not see anyone using it. And why would you when you have beautiful sea and amazing cenotes close by. I think they should take the pool down and build another dorm room. There were many disappointed travellers asking for a bed but the place was full. I recommend booking, especially high season.
Highly recommend this hostel and I would use it again.
