One of the best desighned hostels I stayed in. An amazing roof with a beautiful ocean view, great for yoga and stargazing. The bar is lively and has regular and changing events and parties. Well equiped kitchen. Dorms with good air-con, in-door toilet, shower is outside. A perfect place to base yourself and enjoy the magical Holbox beaches.

Dining area is a bit cramped though and generally I felt the histel lacked sitting space. Staff is welcoming and helpful. Had a great yoga course on the... More

Tribu is a great lodging destination for couples, solo travelers and backpackers who want to get away. This hostel is perfectly synchronized with vibes that the Island of Holbox radiates. The design is unique, interesting and very inviting with its wooded structure and communal areas. The reservationists at the front desk are warm, accommodating and are happy to offer their... More

I spent three nights at Tribu with my daughter, who's eight. We both loved how cheerful and colorful the place was, furnished with great taste and humor, clean, and how helpful the staff was. We stayed in a private room with private bathroom, which was small but magically managed not to overheat with a super hot weather. The only problem... More

I enjoyed this hostels set up. The kitchen is huge, dining area is on a beautiful patio, and lots of chill space. The bar always has something going on, although it could open earlier in the day... The staff are friendly and the beach is less than 5 mins walk away!

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
