Our Story

 The MermaiIMG_1234ss 2d Hostel was born from our travelling hearts and adventurous minds.

We are 2 best friends who love to travel around the world, experience the world and new cultures .

We know exactly what travellers need to be comfortable and feel right at home.

The Mermaid Hostel is a new vibrant place to stay in Cancun.

We offer 2 beautiful locations in Cancun: The Mermaid Hostel Beach & The Mermaid Hostel Downtown.  

Great Location


The beauty of the Caribbean ocean across the street. We are located in a  private residential area with security.

Walking distance to the Ferry that takes you to Isla Mujeres. Just a bus away from all the hot spots in Cancun.

We are located in beautiful Puerto Juarez, in front of beautiful El Niño Beach *blue flag certification.  Its a local fisherman area with lots of seafood restaurants (catch of the day), very close to El Meco archeological site. Just a bus away from all the hotspots in town: 8 minutes away to hotel zone, Nader street  and ADO bus station, 10 minutes to market 28 and shopping malls.



Our new location
in the center of Cancun. A block away from Las Palapas Park and Av. Tulum.

This hostel is close to great restaurants and bars walking distance from the hostel, ADO bus station, banks, supermarkets, shopping malls, etc. You can take the bus to hotel zone one block away from our hostel.

This is a great option for travellers seeking comfort travelling on a lower budget that want to sleep in a beautiful place and walk around the city experiencing local lifestyle. This is a very popular spot  for travellers because of its great location.

Las palapas park offers a lot of culinary options, regional food, churros, famous marquesitas, ice creams, esquites, artisan stalls, shopping and music and art festivals.
