“A great place to chill and watch the world come and visit.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

Cynthia and Lobo are wonderful hosts in this lovely hostel close to the ruins and the beach. I stayed for over a month during the Christmas/New Year's holidays and it was full and very busy but that made it all the more special because Cynthia and her staff cooked special dinners for both eve's of the holidays. You are treated like family and the breakfast is wonderful and different every morning. It is a hostel, though. More for "travelers" and less for "tourists" looking for a bargain place to stay, so if you are not used to community rooms, shared bathrooms, community dining, and shared experiences - don't stay here. I met amazing and interesting people from all over the world and I would say, come and stay just for that. Come for the beach (that's why I was there, escaping the winter, up north) and see the sights and relax! Catch up on your reading, surf the web, make new friends, exchange ideas and have some fun! The Lobo Inn is a nice place for a home base to explore in and around Tulum. Thank you, Cynthia and Lobo.........you know you are on my list for places to escape to next Winter. Aloha!! Sam

The staff is very friendly and helpful, they speak both english and spanish, the breakfast is different everyday and the bikes are fine, we didn't had problems with them. Its the hostel with the best location in tulum and the kitchen is fully furnished. Most of all we liked the good vibe of the place and of the visitors,everyone happy and talkative in the common areas and during breakfast. Most of the bad rewiews lie. The staff don't steal and dont even ask the passports

I stayed 4 nights here and it was truly a fun and rewarding experience. I met some awesome fellow travelers and made some really good friends in the process. The place itself is in a good location. The ruins are across the street and theres a small shop across the street that serves some decent food for a low price. The rooms were as expected, crowded with bunk beds and the lounge area was cool to lay back at; Hammocks were strung up and a computer for personal use was available. No towels included in the price but the breakfast was...and it was good. Free bikes as aforementioned to get to the pueblo. Big lockers for your possessions. Overall I would recommend this hostel.

We stayed in a private room, only downside is the bathroom isn't really separate and has no hot water. There was air conditioning but no fly screen on the windows so you can't leave them open at night. We stayed for 2 nights. The free bikes are great, we used them to go into town at night and to the beach during the day. Cynthia, one of the owners, was friendly and made great breakfasts. The whole place looks pretty run down hence the average review but it's good value and the room was cleaned everyday.

Nice breakfast, Nice location for visiting the ruins And going to the beach.
The place when we stayed had the smell of Goa, filled with "happy" travellers, so if it s your thing, go there. Some of them seemed to love it.
The room for 4 was okay but it could have been much better. Honestly be sûre to share your room with people you know because the bathroom is open so you can hear everything.

My friend and I stayed here for a little under a week and loved our stay in this homely hostel. Lobo Inn provide bicycles for free so you can ride to the beach or ruins in five minutes, or to town for five or ten minutes in the other direction!
The breakfasts were great and the place was really social. We met lots of lovely, like-minded other travelers. One night there was a barbecue and other nights people just socializing and having dinner together. The beds were comfortable, air conditioning worked. Really enjoyed our stay.

Where do I start, rude employees, kids running around screaming, they tell me that I can use their washing machine, then say no when I put them in the wash, rooms smell like urine, no toilets seats, no hostpitality, just generally DO NOT GO HERE!
