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

Calling all Beachbums! Me and my partner traveled to this Hostel in May and stayed for a weekend which can only be described as pure bliss. This hostel is one of the cleanest, friendliest, chilled-out, fun, beach bum atmosphere I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. We rented a couples single room which was 30$ CDN a night... More

The Tribu is thee place to stay in Holbox and worth staying there. They have comfy beds, clean washrooms, big kitchen and a free welcoming cocktail to boot! The main beach is one quiet block away and easy to get to. The wifi could be more powerful but otherwise I would easily recommend Tribu for a great experience..

We went there as group and were hosted here during 4 days! Amazing buildings, full of love and cozy atmosphere! Hammocks everywhere, nice dormitory and bathrooms! One night there was a PIZZABURGER party, the best combination ever tried (I'm Italian, trust me, homemade pizza dough was amazing!) Sincerely recommended !!
