We stayed at the Weary Traveler for two nights in December, 2015. The hostel is a bit less cheaper than the other hostels but the vibe was great. The common areas are really nice, the pool looked nice (although we didn't swim in it so we don't really know how it is). Rooms and showers are dirty, small and the... More

We arrived in Tulum on 2 Jan after spening New Years in Playa Del Carmen and so it was literally a breath of fresh air being out of a city again. Upon check in around 3pm, there was a slight issue with my booking; There were no rooms with two beds and air conditioning left (which I had prebooked) so... More

The hostel has a number of dorms, some with AC. I really liked the vibe: The courtyard has one large table where everyone gathers for food and drinks. The kitchen offers free food in the morning, and in the evening you can bake your own burgers on the grill. One of the best places I stayed during this trip

My girlfriend and I stayed here in lieu of staying at an all-inclusive hotel closer to Cancun. We wanted to be within walking distance of different activities and restaurants while also saving money. This hostel fit both of our criteria. We ended up having an air conditioned room with en suite bathroom to ourselves for a week. The staff was... More

In a little bit of irony, I was a very weary traveler. I showed up at the Weary Traveler after a long day of travel from Guatemala and asked if I could see one of their rooms before I booked it. The man at the front desk said I could get the room or not get the room, but I... More

People smoke in the covered enclosed lobby of the hostel. People smoke in the dining area of the hostel and even in the kitchen! If you are a non-smoker, you will be extremely disappointed. Dirty swimming pool. Dangerous exposed live electric wires. No discount offered for weekly stay. I won't be back, ever. Definitely not recomended!

I liked this place and kind of if surprised it doesn't have a higher rating. I stayed in a 8 bed dorm. There is a decent breakfast, big kitchen, swimming pool, hammocks amongst other things. Staff were helpful and it was decent value. I would happily stay here again.

I really stand behind that statement. I got a private room with a bathroom and a shower and a fan for 450 p. Ither hostels wanted 600 for the same standard(mamas hostel). The service is great, more than that. After 2 nights, there was a wierd smell from the shower and i talked to the owner and he moved me... More

I stayed here for one night in a private room. In the short time I was not in the room, I had a large amount of money stolen from my wallet, which was hidden inside my backpack. They also stole 2 pieces of identification and my credit card was used that same day. Spoke to staff who deny anyone entered... More

It is always heartbreaking when something like this occurs. We have lockers in every room and put signs in the room instructing our guests to use the lockers, for their protection. In the 17+ years we have been operating we have had people tell us that they had hidden money in backpacks, shoes and under the mattress. On the rare... More
