Stayed at Mama's for 5 nights both with a group of friends and on my own once they left. The hostel is super cute and colourful, there are different activities on offer overnight, and they have by far the best free breakfast I've ever had at a hostel, with a rotating menu item that changes every day. The staff were...

Stayed in 'Mama's home ' for two nights. The first one was in a dorm, the second in a private room and both were great. The hostel is clean and every little detail makes the place lovable: the interior, the outside place of the staff. it definitely has its own little charm. Also It's easy to get to from the...

Me and my husband stayed at Mama's Home 3 nights during our Jukatan trip, at the end of travel we came back for 2more nights. Great choice if you want to meet new friends -almost each evening they make socializing events ;) night silence starts at 10pm, but it is just a block away from Tulum's night entertainment street -...

This hostel is first and foremost, beautiful. The common area is colorful and a great place to hang out. The internet is fast and the rooms have air conditioning. The shared hostel room isn't the best but the atmosphere more than makes up for it. Every night there are events, like Barbecues, or Parties. Don't worry if you're not a...

Depressing private room in the back with one light fixture with a view of an empty lot with garbage strewn about. No air/no fan. Breakfast was served with fanfare but with poor ingredients, so I passed.

Hands-down the best hostel in Tulum city. You will feel right at home when you enter this beautiful designed and colored hostel, conveniently located right in the heart of Tulum city. You are minutes away from epic bars, delicious food, and spectacular shopping. Plus you can easily and cheaply rent bikes to visit the most beautiful beach you will ever...

Mama's Place is a backpacker delight. From its funky cool atmosphere to its swinging bar and welcoming hosts you'll be entertained as well as fed and housed comfortably. An eclectic mix of international guests book a few nights here and often return to it's vibrant and fun atmosphere. A budget price will include a great breakfast and ooodles of night...

So, I love this place. The food and the rooms and the AC are amazing. The people who manage it are incredibly accommodating and friendly. Jose is great--he will give you some great recommendations for food and bars and day trips etc. The one complaint I have about Jose is that I was having a bad situation with a taxi...
