I recommend this hostel without reservation. It has a nice communal space downstairs with tables and hammocks, a kitchen you can use, and BREAKFAST- this is not your average hostel breakfast- sometimes it's healthy, sometimes unhealthy, but always a treat. We had a large private room with ac and bathroom and it was nice. Some of the dorms don't have... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with my wife and while the hostel had everything you would expect it really made a difference how friendly the staff and owner were. The place is great to meet other travellers and unwind. For the price a great choice..

Jose at mamas home is one of the nicest hostels I've stayed at! The owner Jose is very accommodating and is always ensuring his guests are comfortable and having fun! The breakfasts are AMAZINGLY delicious and vary between sweet and savoury. Rosie and Selene who cook all the breakfasts and work very hard to ensure the hostel is always clean... More

I spent the last three nights at Mama's Home and it was so relaxed and inviting. I'm sad to not be staying again tonight, but if I ever come back to Tulum, I will definitely stay here. The staff is very friendly and in the main courtyard is always someone to chat with if you want to hang out.

Best breakfast ever at a hostel. Most welcoming and communal atmosphere ever. Jose is the best host ever. Later on I ran into a woman I met there and she summed it up. "Every hostel is **** compared to Mama's"

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. Irish lady managing reception desk could not have been more helpful and accommodating. English guy who sort of runs the show is very friendly and goes out of his way to help you. Very clean hostel, exceptional breakfasts which change daily and are cooked and cleared for you. Great atmosphere... More

If you're lucky you can catch "rum night" with lots of fun and drinks or "movie night". Staff is very helpful with everything and... More

Thank you Jose and the rest of the amazing staff (in particular, Lori) for an amazing time in Tulum. Jose, your hostel is one of the best I have stayed in during our 9 month trip. The first thing I loved was your warm and welcoming nature, which all your staff had. Such a refreshing change to the vast majority... More

Probably the best hostel in Tulum. All the staff (especially Jose) were very friendly and knew so much about the local area. Jose recommended a great place to go for cheap tacos. My favourite tacos in Mexico! If you go make sure you ask him where this is. The breakfasts were amazing - some of the best I've had travelling... More
