We stayed at this hostel for one week. It's situated downtown within a walking distance to restaurants and small shops. The beach is a 30 min (slow pace) bike ride away from the beach. Bikes can be rented near by, the price was 60 pesos a day. The hostel is layed back and quite well maintained. A minus was the... More

In a world where hostels are hit or miss, Mama's house is a home run. Yes they have what you need (safety, security, comfortable beds, hot water, free killer breakfast) but what makes this hostel rise to the top are the intangibles. The staff here are incredible. Lori, Anna and Arsene are truly exceptional people who shine from the inside... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with my daughter her boyfriend and another friend. We had two joined rooms with two double beds and our own bathroom. Once in through the front door the central courtyard is just lovely- like an oasis. Tables to eat at, hammocks, a full sized coconut palm, plants growing up the walls. Our rooms and bathroom...

Jose and the crew are awesome. Great atmosphere. An activity organised every night. Quiet time in the hostel after 11, so you can continue drinking elsewhere, or get some peaceful sleep without the noise. Know everything about the local area. Loads to do, awesome beach.

Wonderful, fun and interested staff - some of my favourite people to have met this trip. Great central location. I felt secure and safe. They make breakfast for free too - and it's AMAZING. Not just DIY toast and cereal... FULL breakfast ! Colourful and comfortable atmosphere. Fast and free wi-fi, even in the rooms! Rooms and beds were comfortable,... More

Wanted to find an affordable place to spend the night in Tulum and Mama's Home turned out to be one of my favorite hostels on my Central America trip. Jose and the rest of the staff were really friendly and helpful, answering queries and even offering to help us barbecue food that we could buy from the local supermarkets. Breakfast... More

After a long trip from Belize it was like coming home when we landed in Mama's home. We had a cocktail making night and ended up out with José and a crew from the hostel. Breakfast was lovely and the movie night was just what we needed the next day. There are lovely places to eat nearby and easy to... More

I stayed at Mama's Home for three nights (November 12-15, 2015) as a solo female traveler in the 6 bed mixed dorm. This was my second time staying at Mama's Home (the first time was in May 2015). The hostel is perfectly located in a quiet residential neighbourhood, just two blocks south of Tulum's main avenue and within close walking... More

Mama's Home is more than a hostel. Of course the breakfast is amazing but Jose and other hosts make sure everyone feels themselves welcome and comfortable. You'll get tips what to do around Tulum, where to eat and if you prefer staying at hostel they have different events every evening. The quiet time starts at 11pm so there's no noise... More

I was only lucky enough to stay one night, but wish that I could have stayed longer. The room and bathroom were really clean and well set up. The breakfast was super tasty and a good size. The outdoor sitting area was enjoyable. Close to lots of restaurants and shops.
