Booked a private room for 3 nights, ended up staying for 5. This is a really fun and modern hostel, one of the best rooms we have had so far in Mexico. They try to organise activities most evenings and also set up a fantastic kayak tour every couple of days. The lounging areas are very nice (try the individual... More

This hostel is beautiful and fun. There are loads of hammocks to chill in and a nice bar and they organise lots of parties and the whale shark your that you MUST do. The only problem was the heat. We didn't have air con and it was pretty unbareable.

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
