We stayed in one of the cabins... it was ridiculously hot with only a fan. The rest of the hostel could be amazing, lots of space, but it's totally unfinished. A bit of a disappointment. Fully functional kitchen. It was very quiet when we stayed, no atmosphere whatsover. Prices are low.

We usually stay in budget hostels and enjoy our stays but not this time. First thing checking in walked in stood waiting for 10 minutes before someone got off the lounge to ask us what we wanted. Had no knowledge of our booking we had to show the owner on a phone (not uncommon) then made us wait for 30... 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

Very nice hostel with helpful staff. Lucy the owner is friendly and like to teach you some spanishe lesson. :) The room was clean and the bed was comfy. No a/c but it was fine cause of the two fans. 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
