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.
Party Hostels in Cozumel: We had a good look and didn’t come across any hostel advertising itself as a party place. Cozumel is more about diving, beaching and enjoying a relaxed atmosphere. However, Hostel Auikyani has a bar next door and holds weekend parties – head here if you’d like that kind of atmosphere.
Ferry to Cozumel: There are two companies that run a ferry service from Playa Del Carmen to Cozumel. The crossing takes around 40 minutes departing from the Ferry Pier downtown. Check out the 3 best hostels in Playa del Carmen.
Let’s move on to a more lively accommodation that’s suited to sociable creatures. Welcome to Hostel Auikyani.
This is a brand new, cool and cosy little place that’s a consistently high rated hostel.
Cosy is certainly a word to describe Auikyani, as the spaces are small and compact. The upside to this is that dorms are kept small with as little as 4-beds, and a slightly larger 6-bed option.
If you prefer, you can book a budget double room for two.
Note: Some of the rooms do not have windows, so bear this in mind.
Honestly, we’d recommend only using the room for sleeping, not hanging out. Anyway, there’s a wonderful neighbour bar called “La Cagua Maria” which is a gorgeous space for mingling.
From here you can hang out on its big terrace and watch the sunset over the Caribbean Sea. Yes please!
Back at the hostel there is also a comfy common area with sofas and small kitchenette setup with lots of necessities except a stove.
Make up for it by taking advantage of the unlimited free tea, coffee & drinking water!
Wednesday is Ladies Night and there are often party vibes galore during the weekends over at the bar. These days the music gets a little louder.
Location: Right in the city centre of San Miguel, looking towards the ocean and just one block from the island ferry pier. A short walk and you’ll come across the best bars, cafes, clubs, dive centres… you name it!
