We stayed in a nearby hotel (see Puerto Holbox review) and visited bar. Brest selection and prices. Quiz Night on Tuesdays, Art Night on Wednesday. Others on other nights. Friendly bilingual staff. Asked other visitors about the hiatal and all were very impressed with staying there.

Such a cool, peaceful and friendly place to spend your time in Holbox... The dorms were comfortable (albeit a little hot in February), hot water showers, fantastic kitchen and communal deck... Can't think of a single thing they could have done to make it any cooler... Definitely deserving of the number 1 spot on Trip Advisor for Holbox.

I absolutely loved this hostel and would have to say it's one of the best staffed hostels I've been to. I had to leave early and they even refunded me my money! I hope that if you're looking at coming here just do it because holbox is heaven. Make sure to go on jam session night which is great fun!

Had to stay across the street the first night, but our little double room a Tribu was worth the wait. It had a little private balcony facing a wooded area and plenty of hot water. The bed was ok, too. We took a kayak trip into the mangrove with our guide, Jason. That evening we teamed up with Jason to...

This review is for the Tribu Bar. After a few quiet nights I stopped in at Tribu after I heard about it by word of mouth. It was a fantastic bar that has a theme each night. Dance Music, Salsa night, Trivia ect. The staff was very nice and the vibe was laid back and fun. One of the few...

This hostel is probably one of the most relaxing and fun locations I've ever had the pleasure of staying. From the hammock chairs, to the rooftop terrace views, and the amazing facilities… Tribu has it all! I'll never forget the nights I spent watching sunsets and looking at the stars on that terrace with great conversation. Meeting so many people...

We had a double room for two nights. The hostel is as great as already described. Really good service and lots of details. We liked the room much. You have a small safe, too if you bring your own look. I think the rooms in the upper floor have a little bit more privacy, since there are always people hanging...

This place is the best! Quiet rooms but with an awesome community vibe. Upstairs is one of the best bars in Holbox. Say hi to Julien and Bucha for me. There is a quiet rooftop great for solo yoga, meditation, or sunset gazing. The kitchen is the best I have seen at a hostel and the community eating space is...

I understand that some people who travel and stay in hostels are very much into the party scene, which is great; however, it is wonderful when a place takes into account the people who want to get some sleep and maybe get up early to watch the sunrise or make it to a morning yoga class on the beach. Tribu...

My friend and I stayed in Tribu Hostel for a couple of nights and it filled all of our expectations. The atmosphere was really chilled and hammocks offered great opportunities for relaxation. The rooms were decent and kitchen made cooking possible with all the equipment needed. Hippie-stylish hostel has also a bar where guests can meet up. The incredible beach...
