So there is some bias, as I have returned to this property more than 12 times over 8 years. They have something for every budget, cabanas, dormitory and miniature casita houses that can sleep up to 5 people (two kings and a single bed). Every year this location makes improvements to the property. Free breakfast every morning makes waking up... More

We stayed here a couple of nights. Robert was very helpful, and accommodating with leaving our baggage after checkout while we toured the ruins. The beds in the separate cabanas were comfortable, but wifi only worked for us when we were closer to the shared kitchen area. Showers were hot. Our cabana also had a tiny fridge, and a small...

The hostel grounds are beautiful... it is full of gardens and exotic plants, there are lounging areas, the kitchen and common areas are nice, includes a pancake breakfast with coffee, and the staff is very friendly. The facilities are super basic and all of the bathrooms are shared. It's not super clean, but fine for the low cost. It is... More

This incredibly charming property is such an authentic Mexican experience! It is THE best place to stay in Tulum Mexico, in our opinion. Here's why: 2 blocks to town, 5 minute drive to beaches and the Mayan ruins. The accommodations are lovely, clean, and tastefully appointed, but also so incredibly affordable, leaving you the cash to spend on fine dining,... More

First place we stayed in when we got to Mexico from Belize and we were so happy the first place we walked into was full so we found this place. Unbelievably helpful and freindly man who worked there was such a bonus. He even washed up all our dirty dishes when I left the kitchen for five minutes. Made me... More

Stayed here for four nights and absolutely loved it. The first night was spent in one of the dorm rooms as there were no available cabañas to begin with. The dorm is basic but is well equipped with fans (although a couple were broken) and a private bathroom. On our second day we moved into a small cabaña which was... More

Thatched roofed cabanas in a beautiful shady garden....truly tranquil, and very reasonable rates...Owners and staff were also very friendly and helpful, use of computer and tv. in the common space as well as a book exchange library and breakfast every morning (hope you like pancakes!) Bikes were also available to rent but they were in pretty bad shape, barely rideable.

A bit of a walk south, this place is lovely, the owners friendly and gardens beautiful. The cabins are cool and quirky, with mosquito nets; quite small but there is a wonderful communal area with books, games and a great kitchen. Wifi is also good. Speak flawless English (and even the Spanish is spoken so thoughtfully that it's easy to... More

I stayed here for four nights, having reserved a small cabana in advance and sent half of the amount due via PayPal. In fact, after the payment was sent, they informed me that the first night only a dorm was available. This misunderstanding was due to the e-mail correspondence of the staff whose English was limited and could not clearly... More
