Really enjoyed our stay, we're sad when we couldn't book again. The staff is very warm and inviting. They also found and returned my friend's wallet and passport before he even knew it was missing. Thank you guys! Will be back.

I love Hostel Che . The staff are awesome. However they are remodeling the bar upstairs and unless you don't mind being woken up by sledge hammers and power drills in the early morning I would pick another hostel. They don't even discount for the inconvenience. When you party till 3 a.m. and get woken up by sledgehammers at 7... More

Hostel Che is definitely a party hostel. We slept in the room next to the lobby and were kept up until 5:30am. Not a bad thing but not ideal when you have to get up at 6:00am. The rooms were nice and clean and airconditioned. The hostel is in a really good location - close to the main strip/beach and... More

As noted, it's where all the action is at. If you want to party/drink each night then it's golden. Our dorm was pretty dirty, especially the bathroom. The shower backs up into the drain on the floor so it gets flooded if there are too many people showering in a row. Also the sink tap didn't work so had to... More

Hostel Che has everything very close, the main bus stations, la 5 avenida (the main attraction of Playa del Carmen), clubs, beaches, restaurants . That would be i think the only reason i would recommend it. Oh no...also the parties they organized on the terrace were really cool. The stuff were young and restless, some of them really nice. I...

Stayed at this hostel for only one night, it's a good place to meet people with it's rooftop bar, but nothing really special. It's not really clean (stains in the bedsheets) but for one night it's okay. When I arrived there was heavy metal playing at the reception/common area downstairs same as during breakfast, which was perhaps a bit too... More

While the rooms were fine and the included breakfast was pretty good, the staff wasn't that friendly and the hostel wasn't that clean. There are other hostels that offer more for the same price so try to find them.
