During my stay in Tulum I was in the Hostel "Casa del Sol". I felt very comfortable and the people was really friendly and hospitable. The rooms also kitchen and shower/toilet was clean. Its a big Hostel (3 Etage) with a lot of space and shade. Music is playing in the kitchen and washing area, its not loud so you... More

Very bad atmosphere as the lady-manager (owner's sister) together with her mother constantly watches your every move - you literally feel like in Big Brother show - she is obsessed with the money, cost of electricity and every 5 min. checks if you switched off the light or the fan if you are not in the room. Breakfast is the... More

"Nice hostel" we thought at the beginning but after some days there we can't understand how a person like Lucy can manage the place... She is like a coronel seating all day in the common area saying "Ulisses, come! do that!! Ulisses! come!!", the boy who works there. Breakfast is ridiculous with no variety of nothing, just "tortillas" with egg.... More

Breakfast included. Nice communal area. Good wifi reception. The tranquility of the place depend on the guest. While I was... More

The hostel itself wouldn't be bad as it has a big usable kitchen, communal area, nice cabins as private rooms for a reasonable price and a nice roof top, although constructions need to be finished. The very poor review is because of the lady who apparently tries to manage it. The only hard working guy there is Ulysses, I assume... More

I think we got off to a slightly bad start, due to our appalling yet improving Spanish. We thought she'd over charged us. I got the calculator out on the computer and kept pointing and doing sums like a bit of a crazy lady, then I realised she was saying she'd give us the change in the morning. I was... More

I have stayed here a few times, and each time I've loved it. The staff are very friendly, the beds are comfortable, and it's out of the way of the hustle and bustle that is Tulum. Has a fantastic wide-open communal area and a great kitchen. Massive fridge which is essential when there's lots of travelers in the same space!... More

Hostel is really familiar, runned by local people. The lady likes to communicate with you,in spanish of course :-) Breakfast comes later than at 8., so don't count on it when you leave in the morning. It's not very clean but it's ok to stay there as a backpacker ;) But pay attention and put your stuff in the locker,there... More

A nice little hostel ran by a Mexican lady and her mother, very basic but a good atmosphere. The cabins are nice for a bit of privacy. Breakfast was homemade by the lady who owns it which made for a nice, personal touch.

the manager is a unique personality. Nice rooms , clean and quiet but average. Small breakfast and the only think that we didn't like is that we were charged even for a shower that we took after our check out. Never asked before.
