“Very good hostel in Tulum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

One of the cheapest hostels I could find in tulum town, and the place is really good, always very clean, the room maid cleans the rooms and makes the beds every day; the staff is always very helpful they really go out of their way to make your life easier; it feels really safe, lockers are good, kitchen is nice there's even a blender, and always impeccably clean, nice outdoor area with hammocks, came back to tulum few times and always stop here

Stayed February 2014, traveled solo

We found the Tulum Naa by accident when looking at another hostel across the street that didn't have any space available. Tulum Naa gave us a 4 bed dorm as a private (which we were looking for). What a great find. Small - only 5 rooms. We had room service everyday, even having our towels made into animals with fresh flower adornments! The entire hostel was cleaned daily, the kitchen appeared to be cleaned at least twice daily and the grass area raked daily. Staff is very friendly and helpful (Irene and Guadalupe especially), and yes, English is not their first language, but remember you are staying in a Spanish speaking country :) . Wifi connection was good, we had adequate hot water and the shower pressure was fine. The exterior door is locked at night and we felt very safe and comfortable. Location is convenient enough, just a few blocks off of Ave. Tulum. We'll be back!

Apprehensive about the hostel as there are few reviews offered on TA, we were sceptical before we stayed- was not at all necessary! The hostel was lovely and peaceful and the rooms were clean and functional. Staff were polite, friendly and helpful. Ended up extending our stay there as there was such a nice feel to the place. Great for the price paid.

Stay at Hostal Tulum Naa in a 4 bed dorm with a private bathroom. Rooms generally were fine in terms of space, but shower had no water pressure, so washed in sink. It got very hot in rooms and lots of mosquitos. Location is nothing special as it's also a little out of the way and hard to find at night.

I hung around the hostel communal area as I had an afternoon bus to get elsewhere, but the manager abruptly asked me to leave as I was still at the hostel after checkout time. He left me no choice but to wait on the street and then at the bus station for hours before my bus left. There was no language barrier as I'm a native Spanish speaker, so the manager cares little for his guests. The other staff were fairly helpful though.

I recommend staying elsewhere for the same price practically, closer to the coast where the scenery is incredible - it's probably 30-40min door to door from the hostel to the nearest decent beach.

Tulum Naa is a budget hostel located very centrally in the town of Tulum. The staff are helpful and friendly, although do not speak fantastic English. It has great kitchen facilities including a fridge, two cookers, a blender and a microwave. The dorms are small with 4-6 beds and are ventilated with fans. There is a small clean garden area with hammocks and tables.

The hostel is a little difficult to locate as they haven't yet installed a sign on the exterior. Basically, look for the imprinted signs on the pavement of the street Satélite Norte

I have almost nothing bad to say about this place at all and would certainly stay again, for me it is the definition of everything you want and expect from a well-priced hostel. It's worth mentioning that all the other guests while I was there were couples, so perhaps not such a great place for lone-travellers.

really regret prebooking 3 nights there .We came across so many nicer hostels in the area with a pool and first of all A/C and by the beach for the same price.You just can't sleep at night,melting away with a fan in the room that heats up during the day and stayes extremely hot at night.There is no place to hang around with other backpackers but just a big wall to look at outside the rooms.The bathroom was really dirtly and the only good thing about the room was no bedbags.There is no info about the area available at the reception and bit difficult to communicate with the reception if you can't speak spanish.I would reccomend staying elsewhere but here...

This place is awful, really don't stay here tulum has so much more to offer for far cheaper. Even the hostel sheck over the road is better than this. Have stayed here 3 nights and not had a half decent sleep while here as the rooms are like ovens, it's hotter inside them than outside all day and night. There has been no cleaning at all and the shower is filthy. The bed itches. There is literally nothing to do here besides look at a big wall, not even a lounge space. There is no information at all and the staff hardly speak English so it's been difficult to work out where things are, for instance the distances to the beach, cons or the cenotes. A simple leaflet and map would've saved south time. Not even a sign for this place on the front door. Honestly I've stayed in hostels all over the world and can't wait to get out of here. So dull, and so dirty with the sweat from the heat at night it's crazy. If you can stay down at the beach do so, if not look for somewhere that has bikes instead of full hire as its not really with it over a collectivo. Even the campsite down by the beach was cooler than these rooms. The amount of money the owner makes here they could easily put in air conditioning and do simple things to sort this place out. Til then it's a no go. Btw security is awful as well, no keys to the rooms only a small locker. Anyone can walk past the lady at reception anytime. And the kitchen has barely any cookware in it, literally just 1 pot with no lid kind of thing.
