I had an extremely enjoyable stay at the Bendito Rancho Hostel. The hostel is located just seconds form the main drag and it is close to everything. The couple who run the hostel were helpful, accommodating and made everyone feel at home. The rooms were clean and well presented and the food in the adjoining restaurant was really tasty and...

we had a twin with own bathroom, which was really nice. Because of the windows we have been able to sleep without a/c. At our last day, the Restaurrestaurant reopened and the food was great and so cheap. The coffee is really outstanding good. There is no cleaning at the private rooms, which wasn't so nice for our long stay.

Stayed two days in a private room, shared bathroom here and really enjoyed my time at Bendito Rancho. It's located blocks from the beach / bus station, so walkable and taxi-able! Also very close to the collectivo station for a cheaper alternative to taxis that will take you to Tulum and many fun stops in between like Akumal. We arrived... More

The hostel provides you a towel, they have good lockers- big and comfortable and the room is very spacious although being for 14(!) people. You really don't feel it's such a big dorm. The... More

We stayed here at the beginning of our two month trip and really enjoyed it. We stayed in the dorm on the top floor. It was clean, the beds were comfortable and the lady running it was really nice. We met really great people when we were staying here which made it really fun. I would definitely stay here again... More
