Looking for somewhere to stay in Isla Mujeres, Cancun? Hostel Pocna is a big favourite with backpackers looking for good time.
There are two bars – one inside and one on the beach; a games room (with table-tennis, pool tables and movie area); a volleyball court; loads of hammocks, free wifi and a restaurant that serves amazing tacos and super cheap cocktails.
Every day there are free activities, including volleyball tournaments, Spanish lessons and yoga on the beach. So if you’re travelling on your own there’s plenty of opportunity to meet other people and have fun. And if you fancy a spot of snorkelling you can buy tours from reception.
The only downside to Hostel Pocna is there’s no kitchen to prepare your own food and dorms are very basic. Fortunately breakfast is included, although it’s only toast and one piece of fruit, but food is generally fairly cheap on the island and there are plenty of supermarkets and restaurants for dinner.
