I spent 2 nights there and it's worth going. The owner is very friendly. The breakfast is made by local women, and obviously it is so yummy. The hostel is located in the center at 5-7 min from the bus station. You can book without asking yourself questions.

Stayed in a private room here over dia del muertos. They put on a great party for the guests. The breakfast is the best free hostel breaky I have ever had but I think there may be only one option per day so if you're picky with food..... The shower was a bit dodgy, they tried to make a cook... More

This place has a great atmosphere and for a few days it's a great place to meet people. The dorm I was in had a LOT of people in them and they're a bit hot but for the most part it was fine. They're a bunch of bathrooms in the room. Never had to wait. Lockers next to the door.... More

Jose end all staff are so nice, this hostel is downtown and very quiet, near everything, walking distance to the bus station, very friendly atmosphere. The breakfast is excelent, tea time every day from 5 to 7 pm. Every night there´s something to enjoy, piña colada, movies, barbecue, but by 11pm is all finished and quiet for those who wants... More

I had a really great time at Mama's Home. The social arena is great, the staff is amazing, the hostel is clean and cozy, the breakfast is superb. I would recommend everyone to stay at Mama's Home when visiting Tulum!

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
