I wasn't in Tulum for very long simply because my plans didn't allow it. However, after staying here, I wish I could have extended my stay. I stayed in one of the tree houses (second floor) and it was clean and organized. Chelo, the owner, is sweet and hospitable. She puts a lot of heart in her work and cares... More

The rooms and bathrooms were very clean. The lady who runs this hostel is very sweet and very caring. Free bikes are provided with your room and she rents out snorkels at a discounted rate. Her homemade breakfast is amazing. A great value. The hostel is by the road so passing cars can be a bit loud but overall a... More

I cannot say enough good things about this beautiful oasis. From the moment you arrive Chelo and her boys make you feel like family. The grounds are very beautiful and have a treehouse/jungle feel. We chose to rent a room with a private bathroom and shower which was immaculately clean and maintained. Most of the rooms their do have a... More

Very comfortable hostel with a great host away from the hustle and bustle of Tulum but still close enough to enjoy everything as and when you wish (especially with the bikes you're allocated upon checking in). Cleanliness throughout the hostel was exceptional and the included breakfast was one suitable for champions.

What a wonderful stay!! We were there for 5 nights and loved it! It is everything you need; cute cabaña, free bikes, yummy breakfast, free filtered water, snorkel rental, clean and amazing host! It has a great location that allows you to cycle easily to the ruins or beach in 10 minutes, or into Tulum town in 15 minutes. It... More

We stayed in the private two level room with a private bath, two twin beds, and a king bed. Chelo and her sons love their home and are proud to share it with you. Every morning Chelo... More

situated a little outside of the main town, but right across the street from the tulum ruins, and free bikes are a part of your stay. She gives you great maps of the surrounding attractions and restaurants. The dogs and staff are so friendly. Breakfast is always yummy and homemade every morning and the full kitchen and nearby grocery store... More

The love, passion and attention to detail the owner Chelo has for her hostel is incredible. The rooms are immaculate and spacious- great for a couple. Bikes come as part of the deal, providing a quick and easy way to get around town. The best part is the breakfast, personally cooked by Chelo. An array of fresh fruits and fruit... More

Stayed in the Posada Los Mapachen in a double room. The room, whole property and owner are fantastic. Unfortunately we had a tight schedule and stayed only for 1 night - but I would have loved to stay longer. The place is located outside Tulum town on the highway to Cancun - right across the road to Tulum ruins. The... More

Upon arrival the owner of the Posada, Chelo gave us a warm welcome and beckoned us in. She is a peoud lady and has her rules. She requested to hold our passports during the stay, which we received back on checkout no problems. She requests to have our bags fumegated to ensure no contamination of the accommodation, which to us... More
