I know that its not 5 stars hotel, maybe highway behind is very noisy...but...bikes for free! Perfect to reach the beach in five minutes, close to tulum ruins, lovely friendly atmosphere inside, freezer for beers in the kitchen, you can easily use all equipment from that kitchen, breakfast amazing! Best place to spend two days in Tulum! Highly recommended for...

The hostel was great. It has comfortable common areas, delicious filling breakfast, with several options available. The common areas were clean as well as the bedrooms. They cleaned the private rooms and badrooms every day. They give you free bikes because the hostel is 2 km far from the center of Tulum, so it was cool. The owners and staff...

This location was provided exactly what they offered: budget friendly, better than expected breakfast (included), and the convenience of free bike rental. During my stay renovations were being made to give the facilities a face lift, which did wonders for first impressions. Yes, some things weren't great at first like water pressure and a non flushing toilet. However! The staff...

The location is very convenient to go to the ruins, as it is a 10-15 min walk from the hostel. Going to town is also easy as there are buses that stop right outside every 2 mins. Breakfast is pretty good for the price...make sure you go very early if you have somewhere to go as it can get busy!...

We booked a large double room with a king bed. All the facilities mentioned were present. The bikes were a great bonus. We only stayed for a few hours before our plans changed and we needed to move. The manager was very understanding and brisk in helping us cancel. We really appreciate that.

Staff are friendly and approachable. Delicious breakfast included and decent sized rooms and bathroom. Collectivo stops right across from crucero, making it easily accessible. Only a short 5 min bike ride to the beach and 15 min bike ride into town. Bikes are free too :) If you're after something more fancy, consider spending more.

My boyfriend and I stayed in a private room with air conditioning for two nights. We chose the place mostly based on the price and available parking. The room was small and not particularly nice looking but for the price I would say it was acceptable.There was good water pressure in the shower and the air con worked. Tulum was...

Hostel is reasonably priced and the free breakfast (with room) was actually pretty decent. The location is further from town than I would've liked (2-3km), and about the same distance from the ruins, so the location isn't quite ideal for either. However, the free bike rentals help alleviate this, and for some that may outweigh the location issue.

This place was soo cheap and I got far more than what I paid for. I stayed in the female dorm. It was basic but clean. No dirt on the floor and I was provided with clean sheets. They fed us a really nice omelette breakfast with fresh tropical fruit and coffee. Bikes were part of the deal and we...
