Stayed here as part of a package with a minibus trip from Tullum. I joined trip advisor just to write a review about how amazing this hostel it.
The place is like no hostel I stayed in after 7 months in South and Central America. It is like a big family home, the kitchen is stocked with every type of herb or spice you would need to cook and there is a massive gas or coal grill in the back garden next to the pool. This made me and the couple I met on the mini bus go to the super market to buy things to cook on the grill and have beers in the garden.
The place is brand new, crisp white linen is on the bunk beds. There is AC or fans in the rooms and there is a massive TV room with big comfy couches. The staff are helpful and if you get the mini bus from the Tullum to the border (for onward travel to Belize) it actually works out cheaper than getting the public coach service with a night's stay in this place.
I had to leave to catch a flight the next morning, I wish I could have stayed here longer.
