This guide is perfect for YOU, when you…

  • are tired of crappy hostels!
  • want a social Hostel to actually meet people
  • are happy to spend $1 to $2 more for a much better experience

Make sure you take a look at all 40 best hostels in Mexico. We also have a guide on the coolest party hostels in Cancun if that’s more your style.

Cancun, Mexico is very well known for its beautiful beaches, resorts, and amazing nightlife. It is a Mexican City on the Yucatan Peninsula bordering the Caribbean Sea.

Whilst you’re in the area we highly recommend checking out the best hostels in Tulum and the greatest hostels in Playa del Carmen. On the other side of the Yucatan peninsula, we also have a guide on the best hostels in Holbox that might come in handy if you’re traveling around. 

What we cover in this article?

You can find all 5 Star Hostels here with Hostelgeeks and all guides to “Best Hostels In” here.

Quick Introduction to Cancun

Average price for a bed: Hostels in Cancun cost 10€ – 20€ per night for a bed in a dorm. A private room starts from 46€ up to 120€ per night. This is a rough average just to give you an idea.

Prices always depend on season and holidays. Please always check exact rates on Hostelworld.com or Booking.com. Hostelz.com is the website to find cheapest prices. They compare prices from all booking portals. Very useful!

Hostel Location: You can stay either in the Hotel Zone at the beach strip (called Zona Hotelera) or downtown. The beach strip with its lagoon is very popular. Personally, I enjoyed staying more downtown, maybe a bit due to the fact Zona Hotelera is so much more expensive too. Please check our map to see all locations and our favorite restaurants and bars.

You can take local buses to get to Zona Hotelera which is around two peso (10 cents only). It is easy and fast and from downtown you are at the beach within 30 minutes.

Safety: Hostels are very safe in Cancún, but of course in the city there is pick-pocketing and several tourist scams. A friend of mine got even pick-pocketed by the police here too. So watch out for these things.

Important: Many travelers get pick pocketed on the bus journey between Cancún and Tulum. Keep your valuables on you and do not put your small backpack under your seat.

Check-In and Check Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3pm), while the Check Out time is before 11:00 (11am). Hostels usually offer luggage storage in case you arrive earlier or leave later. Make sure you check if luggage storage is free or if there is an extra cost.

1. Mayan Monkey Hotel & Hostel Cancun (Party and Upscale!)

It is likely you have already found the best place: Mayan Monkey Hotel & Hostel Cancun!

Update: Former name of this hostel was Señor Frog’s Hostel. The official name now is Mayan Monkey Hotel & Hostel Cancun.

Read: Our list of favorite beach hostels worldwide – this hostel has also found its place on it.

Let’s drop the biggest pros instantly:

  • FUN Bar
  • swimming pool
  • lagoon view
  • huge dorms and private rooms
  • rooms come with a lake view

Oh, and in case that is not enough: They have a Slide!

You can actually slide from the hostel into the lagoon.

Mayan Monkey Hostel ​is a great mix of upscale hostel and party hostel. It is not a laid-back hostel. At night, you can either join the people in the bar and have a seat on the fun bar stools – or you can rest in your room.

Rooms and bar (common area) are separated, so here this is possible.

You can choose from luxury double rooms with a lagoon view to 6, 8, 10 and 12 Bed Dorms. They do also have female-only dorms available; they come with 12 beds.

Every bed in the dorm comes with a power-socket, light and privacy curtain (we love this!)

Good to know: Travelling in a group of 4? Consider the Suite with ensuite balcony. Now, THAT’S a treat!

It is the only one of the Cancun Hostels here on the beach strip. Meaning, you are away from downtown but directly at the beach and lagoon.

places you near the main streets of Cancun.

You are only 15 minutes from the beach. Hurray!

Good to know: Nomads Hostel and Bar was previously the Mayan Monkey Hostel Cancun. Do not let this confuse you. Remember, there is no Mayan Monkey Cancun now.

Also! There’s a second Nomad Hostel with a similar name at #3 – make sure you book the correct one! The two hostels are an easy 5 minute walk from each other.

Travellers staying at either Nomad hostel has access to both hostels to socialise.

Who’s up for BBQ?

Every Saturday, the hostel hosts a BBQ on the roof where you can meet staff and guests. While the Nomads Hostel does not offer a free breakfast, their chef cooks dinner daily.

But there’s more.

If you’re hoping to see more of Cancun, or Mexico in general, you can take advantage of the hostel’s partnership with Party Rockers travel Agency which books tours to the eco parks, ruins, reefs and other attractions.

We know that there are a lot of best party hotels in Cancun but why go elsewhere if you can stay the best place to party in Cancun at a lower cost.

Location: The hostel is only a three-minute walk to the main bus station making it an easy home base if you plan on venturing out of the city. For us, this was perfect for arrival. We could just hop over the street and check in.

3. Nomads Boutique Hotel & Hostel

If you want to embrace the fun of Cancun without staying right in the spotlight, you should take a look at the Nomads Boutique Hotel & Hostel, formerly known as Mezcal Hotel & Hostel.

Important to know: This second Nomads Hostel has a similar name to our #2 – make sure you book the correct one! The two hostels are an easy 5 minute walk from each other. They belong to the same group, so you can hang out at both hostels!

The hostel is set in a two-story house in a residential area of the city, close to downtown too. Make sure you check our map with all hostel locations.

We absolutely love Nomads Boutique for two reasons:

  • both dorms and private rooms are HUGE and well equipped
  • swimming pool and their events
  • access to sister hostel, Nomads Hostel & Bar

Nomads Hostel vs Nomads Boutique – which one to choose?

If you want a more quiet stay, I would stay at Nomads Boutique (#3 in this list). Then for the events like pool parties and such, i would go over to Nomads Hostel. This way you combine best of both worlds!

What rooms can you choose from?

Private rooms sleep 1-4 people with a private en-suite washroom. Shared rooms sleep 4, 6, 8, and 14 people with female-only 6-bed rooms.

All shared rooms come with en-suite washrooms. Bedrooms at Nomads Boutique Hotel Cancun Mexico are brightly painted and feature balconies and gardens for guests to enjoy.

There is a café next door to the hostel, and a grocery store only a five-minute walk where you can pick up food.

Worth a mention as well is the great Coco Hostel, backpacker hostel Cancun has to offer.

If you don’t feel like walking to the beach, you can take advantage of Coco Hostel’s outdoor swimming pool and terrace.

There are multiple common areas at the hostel where guests can relax, make friends, and decide what to do next.

Location: The hostel is conveniently located only a few minutes from the central bus station, as well as many of the attractions in downtown Cancun and the nightlife of the hotel district.

La Palapas Park is near to the hostel and is one of the best places in the city to get a taste of Mexican street food or shop for souvenirs at the market.

What about cheapest hostels in Cancun?

Of course, there are always cheap hostels.

We think, it’s not worth it to go with the cheapest hostel out there.


The difference is usually 1-2€ ($1-2) per night, and a lot of amenities are not included. This can be breakfast or linen.

However, if you are traveling on a shoe-string budget and you wanna save every penny, there are ways to find the cheapest places in Cancun.

  1. Open Hostelworld with full list of budget places to stay in Cancun
  2. Order the listing by price

Simple as that. Make sure you use then the other filters and rank per price.

Also keep a close eye on the ratings, especially the “extreme ratings”. Meaning, the best and worst.

These ratings can give great insight on what to expect.

Best Hostels in Cancun for Solo Travellers?

What is the serious, best hostel in Cancun for solo-travellers?

We have two options for you – and it depends on what YOU want:

Nomads Boutique: A room with your own privacy, a relaxing veranda to take time for yourself and a pool to plunge in is just the perfect bundle for a solo traveler. The hostel also organizes activities and trips. That makes it great to mingle with your hostel mates.

Yet, again, you can also just relax.

Mayan Monkey Hostel: … is great to meet people from all over the world! The bar is a social hub! Walk in the pub and you have new friends in no time.

The biggest difference between Nomads Boutique Hostel and Mayan Monkey is the location, really.

We also wrote a big guide on simple and effective safety tips for female solo-traveler.

Party Hostels in Cancun?

Party in Cancun? Well, every time is the best time to party in Cancun. It is really no secret that Cancun is a party place. And yes, there is a bunch of fun backpacker party hostels in Cancun.

Here’s our take on cool hostels in Cancun for Partying:

  1. Nomads Hostel and Bar
  2. Mayan Monkey Hostel

Pool or party?

Why choose if you can have both.

Nomads Hostel and Bar: … was designed for fun and leisure. Drinking, partying while you dip in their rooftop pool.

Mayan Monkey Hostel: … opened in 2019, and is rocking the city ever since. We really like the healthy mix of upscale dorms and rooms and the super cool bar. The best resort in Cancun for partying.

The difference again is the location, and Nomads Hostel is MORE party.

If I were you, I would would pick Mayan Monkey Hotel & Hostel.
