This was an extremely well run hostel. Had a lovely vibe, Jose and his staff were so welcoming, helpful and always up for a chat. The breakfasts were incredible! It was exciting to wake up each morning and see what was being served... Ice cream stuffed chocolate croissants, poached eggs, crêpes... There were often activities in the evening such as... More

Mama's Home is everything you want in a hostel - clean, functional, good communal/chill areas, air com that works, great price, but most of all, an amazing host. Jose' and his team are the best I've come across in all of my travels. Jose' is super-friendly, welcoming, patient and knowledgable. The 'surprise' breakfasts are awesome!

Great hostel. Friendly, laid back. Tepid showers. Great home cooked and varied breakfasts. Go for an AC room if available... I stay on night in the non ac room- tolerable but much more comfortable with AC and that dorm is a corridor of sorts as others have to pass through it to get to their dorms. Friendly and helpful staff.

We stayed here for 2 nights and would have loved to stay longer. Comfortable 6 bed dorm with aircon, clean, great vibe and really great location. Jose is such an awesome guy and all the staff members are really helpful! The most amazing breakfasts too- you really can go wrong. Can't recommend this place enough!

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
