We stayed there for 2 nights. The owner David is a really nice guy. He speaks English, Spanish, German, Italian and I think Frensh as-well. He will provid you with all the details you need to know about the island. You can book there the whale shark tour if you want. We booked it on the beach but it's the... More

I stayed 3 nights in the dorm. I liked the looks of the place, the general comfort and the hot water in the bathroom. Sasha was very gentle and welcoming. Despite all this, I could not feel at ease because of the noise and lack of space. Its cabanas with mosquito netted openings as windows, and the dorm I stayed... More

Overall, my stay at Ida y Vuelta was wonderful and I can't say that I have any complaints. The location was very convenient, an easy walk to the beach or into the main square of the town. The service I received was so pleasant and enjoyable. I know there have been some negative reviews, but I simply didn't experience any... More

Located near the beach and about a 10 min walk to the city center, this quiet and idyllic place is just terrific! Spacious cabins designed with live of detail that is unusual for common hostels. The floor of the entire area including the cabins is sand, but on this island I didn't mind that. You can get blankets for the... More

I don't want to sound too negative about this place as we really did love our little beach hut and it was what we were looking for - it was clean, comfy bed and it had some lovely touches like towels folded into the shape of a swan for your arrival - all very romantic! It's also in a good... More

I really enjoyed my stay on holbox, the place was beautiful and this hostel was decked out with great kitchen and bathroom facilities as well as very helpful staff. We did a whale shark tour through them that was also great since we had a smaller group. The downside was the boat that we stayed in and apart from the... More

This is that kind of places that you stay and never want to leave. :D Me and my friends stayed here and as soon as we stepped in, the owner Sasha gave us a very warm welcoming, she was very friendly and helpful as the other staff. The breakfast is included which is good but you can also upgrade it... More

We loved our stay in Holbox which is a superb island, thanks to this hostel, one of the cheapest out there. It's a shame that now the island is getting eaten by big constructions and new fancy hotels polluting the view on the beach (which is still amazing). The hostel offers basic/clean accomodations, and cabañas, with a nice breakfast. It's... More

I can happily recommend Ida y Vuelta to anyone passing through Holbox island. It has private cabins for couples or families, and dorms, hammocks and camp pitches for people looking to save some money. The owners are friendly, very helpful and speak over 5 languages - you will feel so at home, you will undoubtedly want to stay an extra... More

We stayed in a private cabana and it felt more like a resort than a hostel - but with hostel prices. Very friendly staff, 3 minute walk to the beach, free breakfast, and a good vibe. Hope to return, both to Holbox and to this hostel!
