Yucatan Hostel/Hotel Reviews

Monkey Hostel, Campeche

This was one of our favorite hostels in the Yucatan. The staff was loads of fun our room was nice, bathrooms were clean and the best location we could ask for. It was a steal at 189 pesos a night/$18. We had a double room in which is a quieter choice over the dorm rooms in the main building. The hostel also has internet, a great patio above the building, washer dryer available for 25 pesos and a basic breakfast.

Nomadas Hostel, Merida

This too was a good hostel; it was clean, offered water for 1 peso for 1 liter. The downside was our room was scorching hot. It was a hot week though and we would suggest a room with some airflow. Nomadas offered internet, had a basic breakfast and free salsa lesson in the afternoon. The staff was nice and seemed very knowledgeable.

Rio Bec Dreams, Xpujil

Hmm, what can we say about this place...

Papaya Playa, Tulum

This was a decent place for the price $30 a night for a basic cabana on a nice beautiful stretch of beach. All bathrooms and showers are shared which needed a bit of cleaning. We also made the mistake of paying for all 4 nights in advance when we decided to leave a bit early. The manager didn’t want to give us the last nights. After much debate he decided to meet us ½ way. There were allot of options available in Tulum, but everything seemed to be $40 or over so we felt we got a good price.
