Tribu is the little perfect family you always wanted at the edge of the world. It is a beautiful place, very clean and well maintained, with lots of fun and interesting guests, staff and volunteers, yet not crowded and allows you your quiet space. You will find Gently clay coloured clean rooms, with air conditioner or with fans (good enough... More

The place was very unique with amazing colourful walls and artwork. We had a double room on ground level. The room kept cool with the trees shading it so we didn't have any issues sleeping. They went the extra mile for a hostel giving us towels and toiletries. The kitchen was great with lots of hobs, although the fridge could... More

Dorms are large, nicely decorated, and clean. The whole place is designed well and has loads of character. Front desk staff are super friendly and extremely helpful. On my first night I was on the top floor in an all female dorm but with no air con, I could not sleep it was so hot. Moved to an air con... More

This is one of the best hostels I've ever been, The infraestructure (each detail of the decoration!), the staff, the ambient, bar,kitchen, everything was totally lovely. I really recommend this place. It has a great mix between the peace of the Island and the good vibes and fun of the Hostel. The only thing they need to change, in my... More

Stayed here for 4 and didn't want to leave. Stayed in the six bed dorm. Great location near the beach, clean facilities, friendly staff and fun daily activities. Holbox is a great place to chill out and Tribu definitely makes it possible.

Tribu is well located near the beach and town plaza. It also has a nice design and lively social activities. It's a party hostel but in a good way, in that the dorms are far enough away from the bar that you can get some sleep. The staff is helpful and friendly and the kitchen is probably the best of...

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

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
