Good place to stay if you plan to stay out most of the time. It was okay, the bed was okay. Met nice visitors. The receptionist was helpful. Not very far from the major attraction in the city. But there was a guy coming in and out the room to fix the bathroom. It was not so comfortable for me...

If you're looking for a cheap place in this location (close to the strip), than this hostal is a good option. Otherwise, I would advise looking downtown and just catching the R1 or R2 bus to the hotel areas for a bit of nightlife fun. I booked a bed in an 8 girl dorm and for the price I paid...

If I was in Cancun just to party with friends I would love it. Its close to all the fun and easy to get to... I stayed here with my girlfriend in one of the big dorms. And was ok. We just needed to sleep one night after arriving in a late flight and had to go to Tulum next...

I simply loved this hostel. It's an abandoned mall remodeled into a hostel with some stores like grocery store and a hidden bar (I dare you to find it) with an amazing bartender. Juan Gabriel at the front desk took incredible care of me and my friends during my whole stay. If you like to travel the way I do,...

My husband and I got a private room for two nights. The location is perfect for anyone who loves the Cancun strip. However, we booked a long day trip and when we got back the door to our room was open. When we went in, our room was clean but all our bags were moved around. One bag was put...

Perfect place to stay if you want to be close to the beaches and the night clubs. The hostel is not like most other places, but at least you are in the right spot and you can negotiate all the prices for the night clubs and tour, in stead of paying higher prices at the other hostels. There is a...

I was looking for a basic hostel for 1 night in Cancun. I didn't want anything particularly flashy - just economical and with good wifi. Thats exactly what I got at Hostal Mayapan. It's not crazy but the people are nice, its very central and it comes with free breakfast! Would recommend for anyone with similar requirements.

During mid-August, not lot of people staying there. Room was kept clean. A/C running all day and night but does not stay cool enough due to room size is pretty large. Need to bring your own padlock for locker. Towel is available to rent with deposit.

A friend and I stayed at Hostal Mayapan for 3 nights during a recent trip to Cancun. Having been on holiday in California several weeks before, we were looking for something a little less expensive but in a central location, and this came recommended. We stayed in a private room with a bathroom which was very basic at best. While...
