I stayed at Jose @ Mama's Home for several weeks and if I hadn't had to leave, I would probably still be there. Jose and his stuff are super friendly and very helpful. Whenever I needed to know something (like where to find this, where to get that or where to have a good, cheap meal) I just had to... More

As a woman traveling by myself I cannot recommend this place highly enough. There are so many good reasons: Firstly, security! I booked a private room and never thought I'd find a king size bed and A/C in my room (the private bathroom was expected). I felt in heaven. The room was cleaned regularly and that was a big plus....

Mama's home is situated a couple of blocks from the main road, which means it is in a quieter neighbourhood but still easy to reach the the centre of Tulum and all of it's bars, shops, and places to eat. José, the guy who runs it, and his other staff are very friendly and welcoming, not one person excluded, which... More

Firstly, this place came under new ownership 8 months ago. The owner, Jose, from Spain has worked very hard to clean the place, add new paint, and make it a great hostel. The improvements are not finished yet but it is already great. Rooms were clean and comfortable. We had private room with great a/c. Breakfast was pretty good. Great... More

Cannot recommend this place highly enough. Jose, the owner, works tirelessly to make Mamas brilliant - he's great, full of excellent advice, location is fab - close to ADO station, near bicycle hire to get to cenotes, collectivo for gorgeous beaches, awesome restaurants nearby too. The hostel is clean, the rooms are great and all the staff are lovely. We... More

As a budget traveler, hostels are normally my last choice considering they are not all consistently clean and safe. However, I always check out the ones in the area, because there are some really fantastic hostels. And this is definitely one of them. Based on the reviews from Tripadvisor, I arrived in Tulum with the option of Mama's Home or... More

We booked here for 3 nights but ended up staying for 4. This is a super friendly hostel, Jose and his team work really hard to make sure everyone is happy and encourage a great community spirit amongst the guests. The bathrooms and kitchen needed a little TLC, but as the place is still relatively new I'm sure Jose will... More

This is an amazing place, the owner and the whole staff were super accommodating. We stayed here for three nights on our way south through Mexico, and I couldn't be happier. They serve a delicious breakfast every morning and everyone has been insanely friendly. Our room had air conditioning (only 1 usd more per night) as well as quite a... More

I stayed for over a month at Mama's Home and it was great! Nice dorm, clean, pretty good bathrooms, great outside sitting area, pretty social. Really yummy breakfast everyday that rotates from sweet one day to savory the next. And Jose who runs the hostel has all the info and is really helpful with anything you could possibly want. There...

We loved our time here and extended our stay. The owner was away, but the guys looking after the place were great. Breakfast was a highlight. Always delicious and a surprise. Great location, only a few minutes walk from 'street food corner'. Air-con in the dorm was a treat. The place was always clean and tidy.
