Wow what a great stay, Hostel Quetzal
Before arriving in Cancun I researched the best hostel in the city and this one came as the top rated. My advice to backpackers out there who are heading to Cancun would be to stay at this place without any fears or concerns.
The lady that was either owner or manager was so nice and she was so knowledgeable about the area of Cancun that she was able to provide some great tips on cheap things to do. Also the staff were fun and made a genuine effort to make sure I had fun while I was there. A couple nights they brought around free food as well.
My tip, if anything, would be to try to request a bed that was away from the bathroom. People go to bed late here and if you are trying to sleep early then you will want to be away from the walking. Also bring ear plugs, it can be noisy as late as 1am. [more ]
