Could not have picked a better place to stay in Tulum. Very centrally located, laundromat and plenty of little markets nearby and a few blocks to the main road where restaurants, shopping and tours were all available. We had a car, but would have survived without one. Jose and his staff are helpful and happy and every morning we were...

This is a hostel so offers group sleeping rooms but also offers more private one and two bed private rooms with shower and AC. Great breakfasts are provided each morning along with coffee & tea. The main host is Jose who is very helpful and welcoming along with his other assistants. Rosie is the "Mama" and does the delicious breakfasts...

Only got to stay here for one night but seems like a quaint hostel. We were greeted by the lovely host who showed us around. The hostel organises to have food brought in from a local restaurant at 8pm which everyone eats together, often with entertainment. The minus point at the hostel is that it is strictly lights out for...

When you book a bed in THE hostel, which awarded not just for the best Mexican, but the best North American hostel for 2 years in a row, and you read the glossy reviews, obviously you have some expectations. But you would not expect, that this place will be a huge disappointment, and you will have to face many many...

Everyone I met at Mama's home, including the staff, was wonderful. Really chill place to hangout, the food–it was my girlfriends favorite out of the whole trip. Great little hostel, good value for the price.

We stayed for a couple of nights last September. The accommodation was good value for money. We had an en-suite AC room which was very comfortable. The vibe in the hostel was very friendly. Breakfast each morning was definitely something to look forward to.
