Pretty decent hostel with good facilities. Includes breakfast and water refills and has nice chill out areas with hammocks on the beach. Has a good beach bar which is very lively, but is away from the rooms if you want an early night. We had a private room which had 3 fans in it but it was still absolutely boiling...

Poc-Na is admittedly the hotspot for nightlife on the island. However, I would recommend staying elsewhere and coming here for a dance after dinner. We were in a 4-man dorm with no AC, consisting of 2 bunk-beds in a room so small that all 4 of us could not stand up at the same time. I found the room so...

My boyfriend and I stayed her for 2 nights in a private room with AC. Although the room was quite small and smelt a little bit of damp, the AC worked perfectly and the rest of the hostel made up for any downsides. There is live music and parties in the hostel that move to their beach hut after 11....

Massages at the Poc-Na spa where great and amazing value, in fact everything there was amazing value! Great atmosphere and amazing location. The beach party was great but far away enough from the rooms to still get a good night's sleep. Worth every penny!

Me and the misses stayed in a private room, it wasn't air conditioned but was still ok for a hostel. Shower pressure was dribble at best but did the job in the end. Saw bed bug reviews prior to stay and........no bed bugs..... For me at least, my partner had minimal bites, about half a dozen. Breaky is included but...

Strict with terrible customer service. We responded email 15 min late due to our flight, and they cancelled our entire 4 day reservation. Showed up after the last ferry of the night and was told that we were out of luck for all 4 nights reserved months ago. Even after numerous confirmation emails! Wandered the streets at 1230am to find...

I have traveled and stayed in hostels all over the world and must say this one was by far the worse experience. The hostel is very dirty, they never seem to clean the outside sinks where everyone brushes the teeth and is disorganized. For 370 pesos you get a very basic room without a bathroom and couple fans which are...

I never stayed for their logings, but stop in when I'm on the island for breakfast/lunch. It gets a bit lively at night at the beach bar, so a great place t to grab a drink. Its a short walk from north beach.

Stayed here for two nights in a private room with a friend. First impression, really chilled place with friendly staff who spoke English (unfortunately my Spanish is a work in progress so this really helped!). Great communal area with bar as well the big sell... A massive beach garden area (backing onto the beach) with hammocks, volleyball pitch and a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mexicos oldest hostel that still ranks among the countries best. Built in the 1950s it is located on Isla Mujeres, a small Caribbean (7km long) island and is 20min from Cancun by boat. This hostel boasts a restaurant and bar that is open until 11pm, after which the real fun begins at the beach bar until 2.45am. Pocna has access to beach volleyball, games room, movies on demand and bikes for rent. We are close to North Beach, which is Isla Mujeres most beautiful beach and Pocna itself is situated right on its own beach that is perfect for relaxing and taking the sun.This exciting hostel offers free activities such as Yoga everymorning, Spanish classes, juggling and what ever happens to be being taught by one of the many talented people that pass through. If you have the talent and the time of at least one month, you can teach an activity and have your cost of your stay covered.Winter time brings on private parties inside the hostel and also bonfire nights with live music and jamming after. Everynight in there is live music in Pocna and the year also brings many high profile bands to play within the walls of Pocna. Those to date include Los Authentico Decadentes, Los Aguas Aguas, No Te Va a Gustar and La Renga with many more in the future plans. An amazing fun and social hostel. On the backpackers trail and full of international guests. A must to come and visit in Mexico. ... more   less
