We stayed in the suite (unexpectedly) due to a late booking and it was a lovely place, very relaxed and enjoyable. 100% the best part about the hostel is the food in the adjoining restaurant for your FREE breakfast. Home made jams, pancakes and home made bread with coffee. If you find a batter place in Mexico I'd like to... More

I stayed in this hostel in April 2016 and had a fantastic time. The people working there are really nice (more on that topic later)! The breakfast is especially good, not just the same typical breakfast you get in every other hostel! The hostel is decorated in an artsy way and it's so comfortable to just lay in a hammock!...

I went to this hostel because it was close to the Spanish School that I attended. It was the perfect place to stay! The rooms and beds are comfortable, the showers hot, there is a common kitchen and a bar with incredible design. The staff here is simply incredible! Helpful, dedicated and great folks for a chat. Especially Fabian, who... More

We went by mistake with my wife for a breakfast and we found the place very cosy, so we decide to give it a try and actually was good , food was fresh and we'll prepared and the staff was very friendly.. For a Mexican who live out of the country was a good start in the morning

I booked a bed in a dormitory, When I got there I finally decided to get a private room. The receptionist kindly informed me that the private room has no A/C but had a fan. Confident on the fact that the hostel won't sell a room where you couldn't sleep in without dying of heat, I went on. My first... More

The man running this place was so lovely. He told us about the concept of the food, all locally sourced and made artesanally. Was sweet enough to ask us all about our holiday and offer us local tips. Gorgeous little garden setting. We should all support businesses like this!

It's a nice hostel, the ambiance is really cool, very chilled out, the dorms are really good, the breakfast is good even though not at all in the mexican traditional style. If you are looking for something geniuinely mexican this is not the good place to go. The hostal is located near a big avenue with a lot of cars... More

We stayed in 2 other hostels in Tulum but this place was by far our favourite.. We even had to extend our stay. The dorm was so comfortable and clean. We loved the free breakfast and enjoyed relaxing in the quiet, peaceful garden (the super fast wifi was also a plus too!!) The staff were also really lovely and always... More

I loved this hostel so much I extended my stay. Most definitely one of the best I've ever stayed in. It's a little far from the beach, but all of the hostels in Tulum are as well. The rooms are lovely and clean, the grounds and common areas are beautiful, the breakfast is great and the staff are very helpful.

We stayed in el cotorro (private room), which looked lovely...very colourful and the double bed was comfortable. It needs a bit more attention regarding cleanliness (dirty curtains), but was still good. We loved the garden and bar area and the breakfasts. Hanging out in the evening in the garden was such wonderful respite from the traffic on the highway outside.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We're an Eco-Cultural Hotel-Hostel, full of magic, culture and art built around a beautiful botanical garden. The first of its kind in Tulum town, we use solar panels to generate 80% of our electricity and we have a modern biodigester to treat our organic residues. We offer you a good price, an excellent service and an unforgettable stay full of magic, nature and Mexican culture. Our rooms are beautiful, comfortable and clean, surrounded by the beauty of nature... The singing of the birds in the morning will wake you up and the chirping of the crickets at night will accompany you in your dreams. We have a beautiful garden where you will be able to find fruit trees and other local fruits and herbs. We have a hammock site where you can lay down below bamboo trees and listen to the water running from the well, a great place to arrive and chill after a day of exploring the area. ... more   less
