Nice place, kind of pricey. Our toilet would not flush, we finally just got in the habit of filing our trash can in the shower to pour into toilet. Would definitely go back, probably just a fluke. Nice pool and good enough location

First I was sleeping there over two night, but I liked it so much and spend one other night there. The vibe and the location are very nice. The bad thing is, I think it is a little bit to expensive and there is a nice kitchen but allowed were only vegetarian food! Thank you :)

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

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
