This hostel is first and foremost, beautiful. The common area is colorful and a great place to hang out. The internet is fast and the rooms have air conditioning. The shared hostel room isn't the best but the atmosphere more than makes up for it. Every night there are events, like Barbecues, or Parties. Don't worry if you're not a...

Depressing private room in the back with one light fixture with a view of an empty lot with garbage strewn about. No air/no fan. Breakfast was served with fanfare but with poor ingredients, so I passed.

Hands-down the best hostel in Tulum city. You will feel right at home when you enter this beautiful designed and colored hostel, conveniently located right in the heart of Tulum city. You are minutes away from epic bars, delicious food, and spectacular shopping. Plus you can easily and cheaply rent bikes to visit the most beautiful beach you will ever...

Mama's Place is a backpacker delight. From its funky cool atmosphere to its swinging bar and welcoming hosts you'll be entertained as well as fed and housed comfortably. An eclectic mix of international guests book a few nights here and often return to it's vibrant and fun atmosphere. A budget price will include a great breakfast and ooodles of night...

So, I love this place. The food and the rooms and the AC are amazing. The people who manage it are incredibly accommodating and friendly. Jose is great--he will give you some great recommendations for food and bars and day trips etc. The one complaint I have about Jose is that I was having a bad situation with a taxi...

Could not have picked a better place to stay in Tulum. Very centrally located, laundromat and plenty of little markets nearby and a few blocks to the main road where restaurants, shopping and tours were all available. We had a car, but would have survived without one. Jose and his staff are helpful and happy and every morning we were...

This is a hostel so offers group sleeping rooms but also offers more private one and two bed private rooms with shower and AC. Great breakfasts are provided each morning along with coffee & tea. The main host is Jose who is very helpful and welcoming along with his other assistants. Rosie is the "Mama" and does the delicious breakfasts...

Only got to stay here for one night but seems like a quaint hostel. We were greeted by the lovely host who showed us around. The hostel organises to have food brought in from a local restaurant at 8pm which everyone eats together, often with entertainment. The minus point at the hostel is that it is strictly lights out for...

You can't look past this place if you're staying in Tulum. I had planned to stay 3 nights and ended up here for 8. Jose is running such an amazing hostel, he is always running around making sure your stay is as good as he can make it. Which is amazing. Along with John and Rachel and the other staff,...
