We had six beds in the female dorm. It was alright but one shower is simlpy not enough for eight beds and the lockers wouldnt have been enough either if we hadnt shared. Fortunately there were mosquito nets for every bed. The owner was not unfriendly, but he wasnt friendly or warm either. The location is quite good though.

My friend and I stayed here for 6 nights in the girls dorm and couldn't be happier with our experience. The dudes who run this place are super chill and play great music. The place is clean, there are places to lock up your valuables, the kitchen is a great touch (for penny pinchers) the beds are comfortable, and Manuella... More

First off, the gentlemen - Julio and Carlos- who manage the establishment are ultra laid-back and cool. El Punto is located very near (.5 km) to the main highway in Tulum, about 1km from the center of town and about 2 km from the nearest public beach. If you want the luxury resort, right-on-the-beach experience, look elsewhere and prepare to... More

I intended to spend 1 night here, and was a little nervous to do so as hadn't stayed in a backpackers since my early 20s (I'm 30) - I landed up staying for 3 nights and would have stayed longer (but had to move to next spot) and loved every minute. The place was a little far from the beach... More

I stayed here for two nights. The room was simple, but spacious and comfortable. I thought it was slightly overpriced for the room, $63/night (including tax). That included breakfast (toast and coffee), A/C, and free bikes. I would have stayed in the hostel part if I was alone, it was a good price when you include the free bike. The... More

I was a little nervous staying here after reading other reviews about being cheated, nickel and dimed, etc. Facility: The property is a combination of hostel and hotel. The hostel part is upstairs in the main building - I did not see that part. The private rooms are all ground-floor, motel-type rooms. They are pretty dark, smell somewhat of mold,... More

I've stayed in countless hostels in my life and usually very flexible when it comes to traveling and don't care too much of the comfort as long as I have a place to sleep and my peace. But obviously El Punto was a different scenario. When I first arrived, the staff didn't know which bed is available so they let... More

Very nice hotel, big rooms, big beds, air conditioners in the room, friendly staff. The location is very convenient - close to the beach and to downtown area, but in a quite location, supermarket right across the road. Free bikes are very convenient for getting around. There is a common kitchen and small fridge in the room. This is not... More

We had a great stop here for 2 nights. We loved Tulum and this was a good place to see it from as it is close to the town centre and near a big supermarket, but includes free cycle hire so the amazing beach is reachable in 10 minutes. It has a cool atmosphere and was a welcoming place to... More

The homemade bread at breakfast was good and the service was fine. Nice - but very small - garden The place seems to be an ok hostel. It is not a hotel and at a rate at New Year of 190 USD we did expect something else.
