We love staying here! The rooms are clean and colorful and close to everything downtown Tulum! We have stayed here two years in a row & love the artwork, the location and the friendly staff! Tv & AC too! Good prices.

This is a great place. Clean, comfortable and secure with good rates. AC and WiFi worked great. Location is central, everything you need is closeby. Prices are comparable to what you would pay at any midrange hostel, especially if there's more than one person in the room.

The hotel was very much worth the price. We managed to get a room last minute during NYE and we got exactly what we paid for. The rooms were clean, the wifi decently fast, the beds and pillows comfortable.

Stayed here much longer than we planned as really enjoyed the vibe in Tulum. Turned up without having booked a room and got the Coba room for 650MXN a night which we negotiated down for the additional nights. Room was clean and spacious with possibly the biggest flatscreen TV we have ever seen, although we didn’t use it. Only one...

Use to be nice, neat and affordable. Even when it's still the most economic hotel in Tulum, now the service is: none. The room keeps the best mattress (after my own bed) but it's dirty and unattending. Looks they pass or are passing through a remodelation and now the space is shorter and has a wood made stairway in the...

Just spent a week in Tulum at the Chilam Balam. Tulum is a sort of hippy dippy paradise that is changing with the arrival of both expats and gated communities. If you want cheap and cheerful while searching out whatever your possibilities are, this is the place for you. Situated on the main drag, with a common balcony on the...
