The best thing about this hostel is the location, it's right near the Tulum ruins and the quiestest beaches in the area. The bike that comes with your bed is fantastic, you can get around really easily to cenotes, the beach and the ´downtown´. The breakfast is also fantastic, really sets you up for the day.
Los Mapaches is somewhere between camping and a hostel. It´s a great looking location, sort of like a giant tree house, but there were a lot of bugs and even a few rats running around our room. It´s not a case of cleanliness, just that the rooms are pretty much open to the elements, with just slighty broken screens as windows. Depending on where your room is, it can be quite a walk to the shared toilets.
Beware of the ´kitchen' as well. It only really consists of a fridge to store stuff in. There´s no way to heat anything, even water. So you can´t actually cook any food for yourself.
All in all a positive experience, but only for people prepared for basically living outdoors!More
