Mayan Monkey Hostel Cancún

Mayan Monkey is located in the heart of Cancun's Hotel Zone. Next to the lagoon, right across the street from a public beach and only steps away from Cancun's best nightclubs. We are also 15 minutes away by bus from downtown. We consider ourselves a hub for all barefoot travelers, digital nomads, and adventurers alike. Our social spaces create the perfect environment to meet new friends. The property has fantastic common areas surrounded by the lagoon and spaces to relax, work, play and watch the best sunsets in town.

Everyone at our hostel is treated with respect and is welcomed as a friend. We want our volunteers to have an impact in our guests and staff and have a fun, safe and comfortable time while doing so. We have adjusted operational procedures and taken preventive measures to ensure safety: *Antibacterial gel stations as well as face masks are available to all our guests at all times. *The temperature of ALL arriving guests and staff members will be screened. *Shared rooms are kept at 60% of their capacity in order to maintain a healthy distance and are cleaned 3 times per day. *Our staff has been trained in best practices. *Deep cleaning throughout our hotels has been increased and is in line with standards recommended by the CDC and local authorities. *We will be practicing social distancing while still having fun both in common areas. We are ready to welcome you soon!
