Best hostel i've ever been to. We slept in a beautiful private cabana, and were woken up every morning with the sun filtering through our yellow curtains and the sounds of the birds. It was definitely like paradise. The staff at the hostel were very friendly too, especially Antonio, the chef. He was a sweetheart, very helpful with questions, and... More

I loved my stay at Ida y Vuelta. A friendly staff, excellent food and drink and a perfect location to see the Island. A perfect place to meet the intrepid traveler and enjoy what Isla Holbox is all about. Can't recommend it enough!!!

Great experience. Dorm beds for about $10. There's hammocks and a great restaurant with cheap meal options, but also a shared kitchen with lots of space and dishes! Hot showers (make sure to use the stalls on the far side of the bathroom with two knobs). The staff cleans bathrooms and kitchen every day!! Live music sometimes.

We stayed here for a week and the owner, David, was very kind and ran the place well. We didn't find it noisy at night. There was only one night when people were home late and partying but they were only loud for about an hour. David closed the bar to keep the place with a relaxing vibe and he... More

A great little find in Holbox - incredibly clean, very friendly, lovely atmosphere with everything you could want: hot water 24hr, wifi, 24hr electricity, the social aspect of staying in a hostel, with very chilled atmosphere, 2mins from the beach, 5min walk into town, and an onsite cafe serving breakfast and dinner - amazing food, home-cooked cakes (thank you Donatella...

We came by ferry to Isla Holbox on a rainy day, a guy was waiting for us at the terminal, and since we were 5 people (3 adults, 2 kids) waiting, we took two of the picturesque yellow cab golf carts to the camping/hostel. We were met almost instantly by David and Sasha who showed us around as our cabaña... More

It was our first stay on a oneway trip, we are on a budget and this place suited us down to the ground. Welcome to paradise! The manager of the place is brilliant (was robert at the time), makes you feel at home and is easy to talk to and ask questions about the island. We had a cabana with... More

First impression after long travel from D.F. was that "this is paradise" and it was. The cabanas were super cute and clean. Lovely relaxing areas and nice kitchen. Nice and helpful staff. Only 1 minute walk from the beach, 5 minute walk from the center. Only minus was that in 2 out of 3 nights the electricity and water was... More

We arrived to Hostel & Cabanas early morning and must say that first impression was really good. How bad! We had to wait for a room quite a while because some other people just checked out and had to be cleaned. Hostel is relatively far (for Holbox standard) from the sea side but we don't mind walking so that wasn't... More

HI guys, thanks for the review. I agree with you that the room close to the kitchen is noisy if people are looking for even silence. However, few guests complained for that because the kitchen always closes at 22.30. We understand your point but have to precise that you knew that before taking it because the kitchen was already there... More

Isla Holbox is a beautiful island and Ida Y Vuelta camping is a gorgeous looking place to stay. Reception staff and cleaning staff were lovely and helpful. I can only say be wary of booking your whale shark tours through the accommodation, and paying more for the 'guarantee' of 'better service' than what is offered by tour agencies in the... More

Hi guys, same as for your friends that wrote on the 18th of July, we feel sorry about what happened in the tour you four had but at the same time we are happy that you liked the hostel (check it out for memories www.holboxhostel.com). It's funny because you write like you don't know each other while you were together,... More
