Tribu is a great lodging destination for couples, solo travelers and backpackers who want to get away. This hostel is perfectly synchronized with vibes that the Island of Holbox radiates. The design is unique, interesting and very inviting with its wooded structure and communal areas. The reservationists at the front desk are warm, accommodating and are happy to offer their...

Great place to spend your island days! Helpfull staff, cool bar and loads of activities during the whole week. Rooms where clean and specious, they've got a huge kitchen and an outdoor bbq to prepare your meals.. and there are plenty of hammocks outside to chill some more after a day on the beach!

We stayed in a private room with private bathroom, which was small but magically managed not to overheat with a super hot weather. The only problem...

I enjoyed this hostels set up. The kitchen is huge, dining area is on a beautiful patio, and lots of chill space. The bar always has something going on, although it could open earlier in the day... The staff are friendly and the beach is less than 5 mins walk away!

The place was very unique with amazing colourful walls and artwork. We had a double room on ground level. The room kept cool with the trees shading it so we didn't have any issues sleeping. They went the extra mile for a hostel giving us towels and toiletries. The kitchen was great with lots of hobs, although the fridge could...
