Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Horrible and isolated location
This hostel is literally located in the middle of nowhere, it's difficult to find, there was no cell phone service and it's just the creepiest vibe upon arrival. Did not feel safe as a solo traveler. Could not stay there. Had to look for another place to stay.

If you don't have money and need to stay only 1 d
This hostel is the best solution if you don't have money and need to stay only 1 night. The hostel does NOT have a warm water to take a shower and this was not indicated on the ORBITZ web site. The one-bed room has only a wall fan. There is no air-conditioner that makes your August nights with 80 F outside too bad to sleep. During the day is also impossible to stay in the room because it is too hot there. It is written on the ORBITZ web site that a room has a fan, but I did not pay attention to that. They did not write that a room has NO air-conditioner. Otherwise, I would never rent such a room. The beach is 7 walking min, but the water there is full of see weeds and stingrays. You can take a ferry to Isla Mujeres and swim there, but it is 1 hour of ride + it is only several times per day and sometimes there is a big line that you can not get on the ferry. If you rent a car, please, be aware that local police will stop you without any reason and will ask you to pay $160 for nothing. This happened to me near a very expensive hotel Villa del Palmar Cancun on my way to the Hostel Punta Sam. I told the owner about this story. He told me that the police is bad in Cancun. The good about this hostel, that they have a very honest and kind housekeeper Marco. He makes that hostel much better! I would recommend the owner of the hostel to triple Marco's salary!

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
I was a nice hostel very simple. I have few suggestions: - add a net door in the lobby to avoid the mosquitoes (are a lot in the evening) - The internet wifi is bad (I only got the good signal in the lobby), would be nice if they can add repeat wifi signal device around the building. It's important to have a good signal for travelers. People, there were very friendly
