Everything about this place is wonderful. As soon as we saw the place we knew it would be an amazing experience. When we entered the reception we met César who was very friendly and chatted with us, giving us maps of the town and many recommendations about where to eat and where to visit. He seemed to us to be... More

This place is a great deal. We stayed in El Corrodo. There were several fans and windows on either side to give a nice cross breeze, so despite being in Tulum during the summer it stayed relatively comfortable all day and night without AC. The whole place was adorable, the lobby, the garden, the bar, the kitchen, and our room.... More

The hostel is super lovely, totally clean, and staff were helpful. For me, it didn't make up for having to walk or cycle in the heat on the highway everyday to get anywhere (eg. shops/beach/cenote/ruins). There are no footpaths at this end of the main road, so you literally need to walk at the side of the highway, which really... More

I stayed here for 2 night in May 2015. It's located at the end of the main road in Tulum, but within a few minutes walking distance you can find places to eat, supermarkets or other stores. The doorm had 2 separate bathrooms for 8 people which was good. Everything was very clean as well and the lush garden gives... More

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
