I came into Tulum on the night bus (not recommended) so I had to wait for the manager to arrive to open the reception at 8am so I chilled on the bench outside for the 5hr wait;) Once inside I was warmly greeted and got access to the dorm room once another traveller had vacated the space (as I didn't...

I stayed at Jardin de Frida for 1 week in a dorm and it was a great stay. I met several other travellers who were really nice. We would cook dinner together in the kitchen which is big and has what you'll need to cook up your meals. The hostel itself is beautiful, clean, and relaxing. The beds are ridiculously... More

I stayed in El Jardin de Frida last March for a week. I chose one of the 2 suites they have, which is a real bargain for the price. It's like a small apartment with a well equiped kitchen and a private balcony. Only downdraft the bed, which I would call a mini queen.. There is breakfast included in the... More

This is by far the best hostel I've ever experienced. I spent several nights there last winter and this winter I returned. The staff are wonderful and thoughtful, and one even remembered me from year to year! The two hostel rooms are well appointed and comfortable -- and they have regular twin beds, not bunk beds!! Showers have great pressure... More

What a find!...I mean that in 2 ways: it was a great spot after a long day of travel but it was not easy to find. At the south edge of town and not well lit but that was the nice part of it as well. The place was beautifully laid out with a nice reception area, beautiful garden and... More

This was right up my street. Well set out. Lots of places to stop and relax in, reception, garden, bar and very helpful friendly staff. They have wifi which was great. Tulum feels very safe and the relaxed feeling that this place creates adds to that. The rooms are spacious and well maintained. Thanks to the Jardin de Frida gang.... More

This is our second stay at Jardin de Frida, the first one was excellent and it just got better! Don't get me wrong, I've stayed at fancy Fairmont hotels, but this place is so unique and inviting! Unfortunately, restaurant was closed, so we didn't have a chance to try their food. We were really happy to see Frida and Coco!... More
