We went to this hostel as it was highly recommended by lots of people... We were not disappointed! We stayed in an air conditioned room which was great. Rooms were really great and the staff were so so friendly and helpful! Pina colada night is super fun just make sure you don't have too much tequila!!! Breakfasts are delicious too!... More

Mama's Home is well located near the center of town, walking distance to the bus station and restaurants. Jose is a welcoming host. The place is hugely popular and packed when I was there in June. The delicious crepe breakfast is legendary. The vibe is great and I met people who stayed here for over 30 days hanging out. Will... More

We originally booked four nights at Jose at Mama's Home but ended up staying almost two weeks. We loved our time in Tulum and at Mama's Home specifically. We stayed in one of the 6-bed dorms. The room was cleaned daily and there was air-con. Breakfast is included in the price and it was different everyday! Additionally, it was a... More

Jose is the most wonderful host you could wish for - friendly, informative and approachable. He speaks perfect English and knows everything. When a mistake had been made with our booking he gave us a private room for the same price as the dorm - so generous. The free breakfast every morning looked like something you'd be served at a...

Staying at Jose at Mama's Home is like staying with a friend. Literally. The hospitality is warm and the energy at the hostel is wonderful. Which makes it very hard to leave! The room I stayed in was huge, spotless and had air con. Breakfast and the 'motto of the day' were the highlights for me each morning - no... More

I stayed in this hostel for 2 nights. It's a good place with nice people there. I stayed in the dorms, and unfortunately they are mixed. Another issue was air-conditioning, it seemed to be broken and working all of the time like crazy, so in the morning I had a sick throat. Other than this everything was good. Breakfast is... More

Jose is a really nice guy, very helpful! Hostel is clean, kitchen has what you need. There is a very relaxed atmosphere at the hostel, easy to just pass a couple of hours in a hammock. Dorm room was nice and looked like it was taken care of regularly
