The hostel is a great place to stay if you want to really relax on Holbox. I went there for two nights and ended up staying six because it was so nice. It's just a short walk to the beach, or to go to the shops/bars/restaurants in the town. The rooms are very clean and well-equipped - each room (dorm... More

The hostel is super close to the beach as many are since the town in quite small. The layout of the hostel is super great everything flows into each other in the hostel from one level to the next. There is a relaxing area with sitting hammocks a roof top terrace which is one of the tallest in the small... More

I spent a week at Tribu on my second visit to Holbox. I started most mornings with yoga on the roof deck. from there, I went to Spanish class with la Professora Extraordinaire Juliana. Many of the staff supported my emergent Spanish with patience and encouragement. Afternoon and evening activities kept me very busy, although there was time enough for... More

This hostel, located in paradise, offers outstanding customer service, terrific amenities, clean facilities and all at a bargain price! I can’t say enough about the quality of customer service at Tribu; the owners and the staff rock! The location is not on the beach, but an easy block away. They offer fantastic tours which were convenient, affordable and awesome! Not... More

We slept in a 6 mixed dorm Good beds, showers and vibe.  From the port it is a 15-20 min walk. Or take a golfcar as taxi. Don't forget to get your deposit back if you have an early checkout! The day before, we were talking to the reception to arrange a taxi and ask where we should leave the... More

The staff is friendly, the island easy, the colours of the hostel are cool. The staff is helpful and they have a lot of activities. I was there at the opening of the bar, pretty cool, but the room are close to the bar. So if you are a light sleeper, you may have problem to fall asleep. Be careful,... More

Comfortable, clean, well-managed, and beautiful. Lots of activities going on here, in case you needed more to do than explore the town or beaches, which is a lot of fun, too. Hot and cold running water, lovely murals, hand worked artisan furnishings and appointments. Internet WiFi available. During our visit there was a cooking lesson, ceviche with fresh local fish....
