About Mezcal

With its traditional architecture and charming pool terrace, Mezcal  offers travellers relaxed budget accommodation with a funky design and popular poolside bar.

Both private rooms and dorms are available. The rooms are decorated in warm colours and feature cooling tile floors and flat screen TV’s.

The pool terrace is very much the centre of the action at Mezcal . Aside from the pool it features intimate seating areas, a garden and of course an immensely popular pool bar.

Breakfast and dinner are both available onsite, but given the location of the hostel, in the centre of the commercial district, there are many authentic “non-touristy” Mexican restaurants in the area for those who really enjoy this cuisine.

Mezcal prides itself on being able to offer great activities, both day and night. Day activities range from catamaran trips to jungle tours, while night activities usually involve visiting some of the cities best clubs.

Positive Reviews

Great party atmosphere

Going through the reviews, it became clear that the happiest of all guests were those who had come to Cancun to party (yes, as a verb). It was mentioned that the pool bar does great business day and night, and that there was an all round excellent atmosphere with drinking games and other activities.

Free breakfast and dinner

While new guests should reconfirm with the hostel, many past guests were astonished to discover that their rate included not only free breakfast, but also free dinner, both of which were described as very decent meals.

Convenient for the bus station

Though, of course, the hostel is not really all that close to the famous beaches, guests knew this ahead of time, and were in fact quite happy with its location. Often mentioned was the proximity to the central bus station, which those travelling to other parts of the region really appreciated.

Negative Reviews

No in-room Wi-Fi

A number of guests were disappointed to discover that they could not access the Wi-Fi system in their rooms, but had to venture forth to the public areas to connect with the world beyond central Cancun.

Too loud for some

Some who did not know beforehand that this hostel bills itself as a bit of a party place were not impressed with the loud music and revelry late at night when they were trying to get some sleep.

Air conditioning only available at night

Several guests reported that the hostel management were only prepared to turn on the air conditioning at night, meaning that they couldn't retreat to their rooms for a cool interlude during the day.
