Not too far to walk to from the port, this is a beautiful looking hostel with plenty of hammocks to chill out in! Good atmosphere in the bar and the staff are friendly. Did the whale shark tour from here which was awesome! Only issue was the kitchen opening times; if you had to be up early for the tour... More

We spent five nights at the hostel and felt at home from the first night onwards. Great staff and an awesome house...no almost like a castle. Close to the beach for good morning swims. The staff is helpful with any questions you have and also provides you with whale shark tours etc. I definitely recommend it:)!

Unlike the most other guest on this hostel, we was a family of five. This is primarily a place for young travelers with a low budget who are looking for new friendships and a nice place to stay when they visit the beautiful Holbox Island. Despite this was the Tribu hostel a very pleasant experience for us as well. The... More

This has got to be one of me and my travelling partner's best experiences - and we've seen quite a few places! The place is one of the only real backpacker places on the island and the design of both rooms andcommon areas is quite unique. They organize whale shark tours with a good company at competitive prices. I forgot... More

If you are visiting Holbox (and you definitely should...because it is amazing) you should be required by international law to stay at Tribu!! Easily one of the better hostels I've ever stayed at (which is quite a few). -The staff and owners are amaizing, super helpful, and incredibly friendly! -The location is a few short steps away from the beautiful...

Stayed @ Tribu for 5 nights @ the end of May 2014. Office staff provided great insight about island. Cleaning staff friendly and thorough. Owners Lisa & David were present and very kind. A queasy person normally, I was apprehensive about going to see/swim w/ the whale sharks that start migrating toward/around the area starting in May. Owner David ensured... More
