It's a little hostel. Everything is very rustic and very minimalist. The bathrooms are very clean! The staff is excellent and very friendly especially Rebecca (Brazilian). It's a cheap place to stay. Our room was a three person room next to a 7 person room with guys and girls all mixed in. It had a bathroom that we could all... More

Inside of this secret fortress is a for real jungle with huge plants and a natural feel to it, with stone buildings and huge plants. Just like the rest of Mexico, there are bugs and birds and I think that is fantastic. The birds, about fifteen different kinds, start singing when the sun starts coming up. It's such a beautiful...

La Cigana was a nice hostel Overall. The 6 people Dorm is very small and has no Space by the beds are very comfy. Shower has hot water which is always good. In the washrooms it's kinda smelly although they clean it. You have there spider webs and stuff like that, but as a backpacker you shouldn't be too spoiled.... More

Three of us stayed in the 6 bed dorm for 3 nights. It's a bit of a tight squeeze once backpacks are brought into the room aswell but just about manageable. The place was a bit grubby but did the job. Staff are friendly and helpful. Would stay here again.

While we were here (2 nights), we found in the room: one gecko, 2 giant cockroach, around 10-15 humidity bugs and a Tailless Whip Scorpions, it is not dangerous but it is big and gross, you don't want it in your bathroom i promise. It says there is hot water 24/24h, it wasn't true in my room, there was hot... More

This hostel offers a community atmosphere with cookouts, a nice veranda to meet other people and chat, and is in a very picturesque location - essentially in a small walled-off jungle in a busy area of Tulum. The staff were very friendly and helpful. But beware the humidity! We stayed at the end of the rainy season (which lasted longer... More

This is kind of a place you think about when you hear the word "hostel" First of all, but this matters: the new crew is very nice and helpful !! Tulum itself is pretty fine : we didn't want to stay 1 night and at the end, we've spent 4 days in there ! You'll find la Cigana next to... More

I found this hostel by chance after a late arrival to Tulum, and first booked it for one night as I'd planned to move to the beach area the following day. I picked La Cigana because it's central, cheap, includes breakfast, wifi and a bike rental. I shared a big dorm with 4 people which to me isn't any hassle,... More

I stayed in this hostel for my first few days of my trip and I couldn´t have wished for a better start. The atmosphere and staff are very relaxt, nice and helpful. The hostel is located right in the center and the rooms are clean and oke.
