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...

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

Every hostel owner should come and take tips from Jose! Great hostel, cleaned every day, breakfast included, aircon dorm and a relaxed atmosphere in the centre of Tulum. Jose will go out of his way to make sure you have a fantastic experience in Tulum. 100% recommended!
