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.

Location: Most hostels are in the same area, couple miles from the beach. The only way you're going to get closer to the beach is by staying in a resort. Good location for restaurants & public transport. Cleanliness: Very clean. Helpfulness: Staff are super helpful with suggesting activities, places to go, where to eat, etc. Was a bit of a... More

Awesome place to stay! Very clean and refreshing. Hot showers. Open, relaxed atmosphere with hammocks, good music, chill vibe. Many activities to socialize people! Jose is very knowledgable of things to do. Best breakfasts, and free!! Highly recommend. And plan to stay longer than you expect, you'll fall in love with this place!

This is simply the best hostel I have ever stayed. Probably, all other hostels I will visit in the future will look disappointing in comparison with Mama's Home. What I really appreciated about the hostel is the relaxed and open vibe. Everyone is welcome and there are lots of opportunities to socialize with fellow travellers (enjoying the terrific breakfast, activities... More
