Good value, great location, air con was included in our dorm room, very clean and had an amazing night learning to salsa for free! Lovey staff and would recommend to anyone looking to travel on a budget. Also gave us great advice on the local area and helped us hire bikes from a local company including discount :)

As a solo traveler, where I stay is super important because it can make or break a trip sometimes. At Mama's Home, Jose has created an atmosphere that is welcoming, relaxed, and yet full of adventure. I met some really awesome people here whom I keep in touch with even though I met them at Mama's home almost 2 years...

This hostel gets top marks because it's clean, it's quiet at night, it's safe, the staff are super helpful, it's conveniently located close the main street in Tulum (restaurants, bike hire etc.) and breakfast is included. The breakfasts are not just toast and jam - they're delicious, beautifully put together meals and the even catered for us being gluten free...

Amazingly charming hostel, very clean showers with hot water and delicious breakfasts in the morning. Jose was very accommodating by offering me an earlier breakfast the day I had to catch an early bus, which was appreciated. If you sleep in the non air-con dorm, I suggest grabbing a bed farther in rather than one close to the doors as...

I had a really great time in Mexico and plan to return. Part of my experience was staying at Mama's Home that I can only describe as chill and vibrant! I met so many awesome people, from Jose to other staff members and travellers. I wish I could have stayed longer. I've also never had a breakfast at a hostel...

Stayed here for 4-5 nights. Very comfortable stay, great friendly staff who were very approachable. Special mention to Jose. Oh yeah, the free breakfast was awesome. Hostel was not party oriented which allowed for a quiet stay but still allowed you to meet like minded people

My stay in mama's home was very good. The owner is lovely and works hard. The volunteers working there are also very nice and give a lot of information. Breakfast is included and it is honestly amazing! I got this place recommended by other travelers and was definitly worth staying for a couple of nights!

I think the other hostels in the area should re-name themselves to sound like Mama's home, so they can be booked out day after day after day. a perfect mix of location, seclusion and price makes for a great place to use as a base for adventure, or just chill. Jose, Tess and Rachael make sure that everything you need...

This is my second time staying in at Mama's in Tulum. Still remains just as fantastic as last time. Very involved and friendly staff. Jose the owner is a legend and makes you feel at home immediately. Staying in a private room this time and it always immaculate. Beautiful breakfast every morning by the lovely Rosi ( a local mexican...

Great location in town, great atmosphere, the breakfast in the morning is nearly gourmet, the staff in the hostel is really amazing. Jose, the owner is a very welcoming and excellent person, he knows a lot about town, which cenotes, restaurants, beaches to visit.

“Try to stay in the smaller dorms.”
