This place was a diamond in the rough. Chelo was the most incredible, friendly, warm host who made us feel totally at ease. The wooden huts are well made and safe - just be aware that there's no air con so it can get pretty hot during the night. The breakfast is the best bit- fresh fruit, cake with cooked... More

Such a great vibe - the host Chelo and her two sons provide a home style hostel experience that is uniquely mexican. Standouts include the Amazing home cooked breakfasts - and bikes included with your stay! The rooms are simple, clean and set out so you still retain your privacy. Chelo provides awesome local advice to help you make the... More

I was on a trip with my boyfriend for two days and we were really sad we couldn't stay longer! Chelo has lots of rules but she treated us just like family. Breakfast was wonderful, the place is like paradise and very quiet and romantic :)

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Posada Los Mapaches. The owner, Chelo, is the sweetest lady and she can cook a mean breakfast! Morning breakfast was always delicious and very filling. The location is great - across the street from the ruins and very easy to bike to the beach. The grounds are very well kept and beautiful and the... More

I can't say enough good things about our stay at Posada los Mapaches. Our host Chelo was welcoming, friendly, and patient, even when our flight was delayed by five hours and we missed check out. Breakfast is incredible. You sleep in a tree house with a thatched roof. Definitely opt for one of the top floors if possible. Rooms are... More

I found this lovely place over trip advisor and I'm totally happy with this choice. The hostess is such a lovely and helpful English speaking woman. The rooms are clean and and set up in a tree house like fashion. You get a shared outdoor bathroom, including showers and toilets which are clean! The beach is in walking distance and... More

Beautiful round and buildings with immaculate gardens. Perfect breakfasts each day, free bikes and all the safety gear. The road out front can be a little noisy, so try and get a room at the back our on the ground floor. A home from home.

Stayed there with my friends for almost a week, as it was so hard to leave.. Staying there feels like staying in a jungle.. Stay includes the best breakfast ever or bike rent, which allows you trips to the beach, to the town or nearby Cenotes.. The owner is a really nice person and helps you with anything you need...

this is one of the most remarkeable hostels i've stayed at so far - if the word hostel does it justice at all. It feels a little bit like sleeping in some kind of jungle logde. no concrete walls but wood and palm trees surrounding you. It is neat, well kept and as tidy and clean as it can be.... More
