We are an awesome Hostel! You won't regret making us your Home Away from Home while in Cancun!
At Hostel Ka'beh we believe in slow travel. You're on vacation! Why should we wake you & take your bed away if it's not necessary? Why put a restriction on your breakfast time? Why should you stress about having to adapt to us? Relax! You're at home. Your home away from home!
(PLEASE NOTE: If you want to stay for just one night, just drop by. We'll definitely find a way to accommodate you.)

At Hostel Ka'beh, our goal is to be true to what a Hostel should be. We are a low-cost option for globetrotters looking to stay at their Home Away from Home. Fellow Guests and Staff are your friends and family, and the Hostel has everything you could possibly need while traveling, but couldn't pack!
Our Hostel is changing travelers views of Cancun, one person at a time! We maintain a relaxing atmosphere, the kind that prepares you for a long day exploring some Mayan ruins, or the kind where you can literally kick back and do nothing!
The Hostel itself is perfectly, centrally located. We're half a block away from the main square, where you can get real, safe, *amazing* Mexican meals for 2-3 USD! The square is also bustling with cultural activities every Thursday through Sunday!
