If you're looking for 5 star accommodation this is not the place. It's very cheap and in my opinion perfect for backpackers on a budget. The cabanas are small and basic, but private. The shared bathrooms are relatively clean and there's hot water in the shower - I really couldn't ask for more for 26$ a night. Breakfast is pancakes,... More

This place is terrible. Spend a little bit more and stay at a decent place, or just go for a hostel near the tourist area. First, our rental car company didn't have any cars available and we had to spend some time/extra money to figure something else out. We were arrived about 2 hours past when we had planned (though...

We stayed in one of the very nice casitas. The place is like jungle, so mexican and very friendly owner. It looks and feels much better than on the photos. The only thing I would like to have in my casita, is a little wardrobe for clothes as we stayed for 8 nights.

So there is some bias, as I have returned to this property more than 12 times over 8 years. They have something for every budget, cabanas, dormitory and miniature casita houses that can sleep up to 5 people (two kings and a single bed). Every year this location makes improvements to the property. Free breakfast every morning makes waking up... More

We stayed here a couple of nights. Robert was very helpful, and accommodating with leaving our baggage after checkout while we toured the ruins. The beds in the separate cabanas were comfortable, but wifi only worked for us when we were closer to the shared kitchen area. Showers were hot. Our cabana also had a tiny fridge, and a small...

The hostel grounds are beautiful... it is full of gardens and exotic plants, there are lounging areas, the kitchen and common areas are nice, includes a pancake breakfast with coffee, and the staff is very friendly. The facilities are super basic and all of the bathrooms are shared. It's not super clean, but fine for the low cost. It is... More

This incredibly charming property is such an authentic Mexican experience! It is THE best place to stay in Tulum Mexico, in our opinion. Here's why: 2 blocks to town, 5 minute drive to beaches and the Mayan ruins. The accommodations are lovely, clean, and tastefully appointed, but also so incredibly affordable, leaving you the cash to spend on fine dining,... More

First place we stayed in when we got to Mexico from Belize and we were so happy the first place we walked into was full so we found this place. Unbelievably helpful and freindly man who worked there was such a bonus. He even washed up all our dirty dishes when I left the kitchen for five minutes. Made me... More
