If you're backpacking or just on a tight budget, Hostel Quetzal is one of the best hostels in Cancun. Located just off of Parque Palapas in downtown Cancun, the hostel is an artsy airy place with a leafy garden and a great rooftop lounge. All rooms--private and dorms--have A/C, which is huge, especially in the steamy summer months. They are all very clean and well-kempt. Rates vary from $15-40pp, depending on the season and the type of room you get, but all include full breakfast and family-style dinner. The owner, a former professional dancer, often organizes club crawls too.

Discovering places like the Hostel Quetzal is what makes traveling so much fun. Hands down this was my favorite place in Cancun in the budget category. Set in downtown Cancun, the Quetzal is a little hard to find but well worth the effort. Monica, the owner, lived and worked in this space before a hurricane intervened to force renovation. The skeleton of this beautiful structure survived to reveal a wonderful, happy space that used to be a dance studio.

There is a boy/girl theme going to much of the house so female travelers have a secluded space to retreat too. But that is not to say there isn’t, ahem, ALOT of commingling going on at the Quetzal. This is a favorite spot with international travelers and Monica herself sees to much of the social activities including a communal dinner and partying field trips to the surrounding beaches. If you do go please say hi to Monica and tell her Aaron says hi.

We had a little difficulty finding this place, but once we did we were very pleasantly surprised! As far as hostels go, this was the nicest one I’ve seen. We were immediately greeted by Monica, who we soon found out was the owner of this special place. She gave us a thorough tour of her entire property, showing us about every room and option, and told us about all the activities (and there were many!), as well as how she prides herself and her business on its homey feel and comfortable amenities. For the price she charges, there are so many awesome rooms, and options available. I could just feel the warm, happy vibe there, and once she told us of the history of the place, I really knew why. Monica is a dancer, and this was actually her personal home, dance studio, and recording studio before Hurricane Wilma destroyed it. I was very impressed with the friendliness, cleanliness, and pride of the owner and her “home.” I could go on, and on about this Hostel!

Realmente no me gustó para nada, los aires acondicionados no sirven, solo tiene 2 baños para cada piso, el desayuno que sirven es muy básico . Café y emparedado. Y la piscina y áreas públicas están muy descuidadas. No lo recomiendo .
