“Worst hostel experience ever”

Rating: 1 Reviewed on December 08, 2018

I stayed in this hostel in a private room for 1 entire week (I didn't change it due my lack of money). It is a lie they have a kitchen - only the staff can use it. The security is awful! Anybody...

Directions

From the Airport, there are three main ways to get to the Hostel.The First and most expensive is to take a Taxi. Taxis cost between $40 and $60 USD, but can fit up to four people so that you can share the cost.The Second is to take a Shuttle/Colectivo. This costs about $15 USD per person. The downside is that they take the long way to get to the Hostel, so they take longest of the three options. The upside is that they drop you right in front of the Hostel.Either way, by giving your driver these directions, either of these two options should be able to find us quickly:'Para llegar al Hostal, desde la Tulum, toma 'COBA', después del semáforo del Hospital, doblas a la derecha donde antes se encontraba el restauran 'El Tacolote' como para ir al parque de las palapas, y justo antes de llegar al parque, a mano izquierda verás unas banderas, y un portón de madera grande. Este es el lugar!La dirección exacta es: Alcatraces 45 SM. 22 Mza. 10 L. 26, Retorno 5, Cancun, Mexico'Your Third, and cheapest option is to take a bus. Here are the directions to take it:At the airport, you need to get to Terminal 2. If you arrive at terminal 3, there's a shuttle that leaves every 10-15 mins that takes you to Terminal 2 for free.If you arrive at Terminal 2, then when exiting, ignore everyone trying to sell you a taxi, or a shuttle (They're aggressive and pushy) and walk to the **other** side of the Airport looking for a bus called 'ADO'The bus costs $56 MXN pesos or about 4-5 USD and takes 30 to 45 mins. depending on traffic.Once you're at the bus station follow these directions:Leaving the bus station (stand facing the Oxxo establishment), you walk left, and cross the Uxmal Av.Slightly to your left there's a road called 'Margaritas' (note: if you're standing next to an 'Extra' establishment, you're on the wrong road!)Walk straight and follow this road!You'll pass a church to your left, and then an open plaza with a stage with a large thatch-hut like roof on your right, keep going.Once you've passed the parking lot for this plaza, you're only half a block away!Look for Flags and large open wooden doors just before the street corner. Welcome to Hostel Ka'beh! (Ring the bell if necessary!)
