Very good, the cereal breakfast was good and always enough for everyone. Great location, close to the ruins and cenotes. However they did not offer the option for two people to share a double bed when booking online! The staff were so friendly and helpful.

I really like this place, but I thought the price was a little high. It was clean and cute, my only huge problem was our toilet. The freaking thing wouldn't flush to save my life. Finally we started gathering water in a trash can to pour in the toilet and that would work. I was worried about the noise, but... More

Stayed here for 4 night with a group of friends and we were all excited about the double bed bunks. There is a downstairs seating area, free use of a kitchen, and pretty cool bar upstairs. It's not the cleanest place and the owners aren't the friendliest but overall - okay place. There's a bike rental place next door as... More

We spent two nights at chalupa. The air con only runs at night (9am-9pm) but during the day, if you get back from a bike ride and are hot, you can just take a dip in the pool! Not the kind of pool where you want to stick your head in but it's definitely refreshing on a hot day! A... More

This is a really great place. Its well and truly worth the money, which is next to nothing. Upon our arrival the staff greeted and spoke with us for a solid half an our about what there is to see and do in tulum, gave us great advice and lent us snorkelling gear free of charge. we intended on staying...

This hostel seems to be a good value for Tulum. Location is at a major junction, not really charming, but handy to explore the ruins, cenotes and beach if you have a bike. Rooms are surprisingly spacious, clean, with AC and rather intimate as for a dorm (5 beds only with attached bathroom). But the absolute deal-breaker is the bar... More

The place was great, the rooms are big enough, the beds are sooooo comfortable i wish i could bring one back home. It is 3,5 km from the beach but if you rent a bike or have enough time to walk it is easily done, the city center is just around the corner, the restaurants and supermarker are close too!

I really enjoyed my stay at Chalupa hostel. The pool was great and the mezcal bar upstairs was a lot of fun. There were plenty of other backpackers to meet and some locals in the bar. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The AC is limited from 9pm to 9am but if your in your room all day there is... More

We had a great stay at Hostal Chalupa which is located right on the main road to the beach, to the Tulum Maya ruins, Gran Cenote and Tulum Centrum. The staff was fun, friendly and helpful and the hostel felt very social with large communal areas and a bar upstairs. Supermarkets were close by and there would always be taxis... More

We stayed in a private room which was actually more like a hotel room than a hostel room: really big room with two double beds and private bathroom. The room was clean and the shower had hot water. There are lockers in the room. They have vans in the room and air conditioning (pretty loud) during the night starting at... More
