These hostel is one of the best I have ever stayed. The location is awesome. Very lovely people who works there- they are very kind and makes you feel at home and give a lot of information. I stayed in a double room, which was very comfy and clean. And I had a balcony. Also the garden is wonderful- you...

I didn't like Tulum. But I really liked this hostel. The main highway from Cancun to who knows where runs right through Tulum and this hostel is located right next to the highway and the far end of town. There's nothing calming or enticing about the area, but once you walk into the reception it's like you're transported to a...

If you travel and frequent hostels, this'll be one of the best ones you've ever stayed in. Staying here was beautiful, magical and everything you've dreamt of for a stay in Mexico. The front desk is incredibly helpful, kind and patient. Two of my girlfriends and I stayed in two different private rooms and had such a wonderful time. We...

We spent two good nights at this hostel in a private double room. Nicely decorated, big comfortable bed and all windows mosquito proof. Bfast was all home made, with jams, pancake and bread, plus coffee and bananas. Could have been more abundant though, but we did not ask if we could get a second plate. Not possible to stay in...

Located on the edge of town, about a 10 minute walk from the bus station, Jardin de Frida is a really lovely little spot, perfect for people who want to have a quieter stay in Tulum. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the property itself is lovely. We stayed in bot the dorm room and a private room....

They do free basic brekky of bread, crepe and jams or you can buy something from the menu In the dorm, the beds are clean and comfy enough and the fans are great...

El Jardin de Frida was exactly what I was looking for in Tulum - peaceful, clean, and colorful, a place where I felt truly welcomed and calm. I stayed in both the 7 and 5 person dorm. Each dorm was well-maintained, and the bathrooms were very clean. The showers always had hot water. Even though it's right off of the...

I really enjoyed my time here and stayed in one of the private rooms. The garden is beautiful and a nice place to relax. Also, the staff was kind and informative. Our food at the hostel is was delicious and healthy. There was a free breakfast, however, if you eat as much as me you may still be hungry afterward....

I stayed here a couple nights with my husband at the beginning of the year and we absolutely loved it! Once you walk through the entrance and step inside, it truly is a little bohemian gem. Our check in was easy and quick. The gentlemen showed us around the property and then showed us to our room, El Cotorro, which...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
El Jardín de Frida is your home in Tulum, we're an Eco-Cultural Poshtel, full of magic, culture and art built around a beautiful botanical garden. The project is inspired not only in Frida Kahlo's amazing life, but also in Mexico's great culture, art and traditions, offering all that in your stay. We are located in Tulum's residential area, on the main avenue, 5 minutes away from downtown and the bus station. We cater to guests looking for a quiet and comfortable place to relax, surrounded by a beautiful lush tropical garden. Our garden is programed to help you heal and release any energy you no longer wish to carry with you. You will be surrounded by the beauty of nature... The singing of the birds in the morning will wake you up and the chirping of the crickets at night will accompany you in your dreams. In our beautiful botanical garden you will find different species of local trees and plants, like the sacred Mayan tree or the chicle (bubble gum) tree, amongst others. Here you can learn about our local flora and their uses. We also have a hammock site where you can lay down below bamboo trees, a great place to arrive and chill after a day of exploring the area. We are concerned not only in the quality of service but also in developing activities that benefit the planet. We offer you a good price, an excellent service and an unforgettable stay full of magic, nature and Mexican culture. Here you SLEEP, LEARN and HEAL. Welcome HOME! ... more   less
