Just back from an 8 night stay at Tribu in Holbox with my girlfriend. This is easily one of the friendliest, cleanest and well equipped Hostels I’ve every stayed in. The owners Mia & David and extremely helpful and friendly. The kitchen is clean and well organised, there is a nice bar and roof top terrace.. Its 1 street back from the beach and 3 mins walk to the main square of the town - Location is perfect!

I can 100% recommend Tribu!

Tribu Hostel is brand new! Go there! The owners are very sweet, helpful and discreet.

Great ambiance with a lot of people from France, Italy, German and Mexican. Backpackers yes, but if you're not, like us, you'll be ok, not feeling you don't "fit".

Kitchen is great, cleaned by a nice and smily Holbox couple. The private room are not big, but very comfortable. We missed some place to put our clothes: no furniture or closet. You have a semi-private balcony but no chair: that would be great for some private time for reading outside the room.

Go for the fishing trip they sell to the hostel customers: GREAT!!!
Holbox is a great destination fir relaxing and being in contact with very nice mexican people... REALLY!!!

I travelled a lot but I've never found such a wonderful place at such a low price. the people, the staff , the amazing Structure of the Hostel bright colours and super confortable, everything was perfect. Incredible eating on the "comedor" while watching the see through the palms, and it was magic contemplating the sunset on the terrace lying on an hamaca, dominating the sea and the landscape....simply perfect, you cannot miss it at all!the kitchen is well organized there is space for everybody.
funny spending the night at the hostel bar, every night there's something to do, and there's also an incredible cinema with a dolby surround!

I spent a few weeks on Holbox recently. As with most folk lucky enough to get to Holbox I ended up extending my stay for a few weeks! The island itself is beautiful, and Tribu Hostel is a great place to base yourself. It's brand new and the owners are genuinely friendly and helpful. They have put so much work into the hostel, with each detail being carefully thought about. The furniture is all handmade, there are plenty of places to relax on hammocks and enjoy the view. The kitchen is spotless and there is even a cinema room! Lovely spacious dorm rooms and gorgeous private rooms if dorms aren't your thing. Excellent value, best hostel I have stayed in in my travels around
Central America and South America. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tribu to anyone, be prepared to never want to leave
