Came here in March and stayed for 3 nights. it is a great place to stay and meet people, with a cool outside area to hang out in with good cheap food and drinks deals. The breakfast are free and good, you have a choice of about 5 different options and can buy more for around 10 pesos. The dorms...

A really nice and clean place, where you have every opportunity to meet other travellers. Everything was just working, so no worries. I loved the place.

The title sums it up, the place simply is dirty. My sheets were bloodstained and the staff really couldn't care less. The toilets and bathroom facilities were also gross. I also met people who had some run-ins with bed bugs during their stay. It is cheap BUT not so cheap that they cant put more effort into keeping the place...

I stayed 2 nights at the weary traveller hostel. The best point is definitely the ambiance : easily meet tons of other backpackers from all around the world. Facilities are clean and in good state. Bedrooms and bathroom are ok. They have a private bus that takes you to and from the beach in the morning and afternoon for free...

In comparision to other hostels I've seen the last month in Mexico, this is definitely one of the worst. The staff is not really friendly neither helpful. Shower and toilet was dirty, walls could use some fresh color. The facilities are under permanent construction, so it's noisy the whole day. And because the community is sitting right in front of...

Handy hostel for Tulum, right beside the bus terminal. There is a free shuttle bus to and from the beach which is great and a good breakfast (pancakes, or eggs etc) is included. The staff are friendly and helpful and there is a really good BBQ available every night (65Pesos for a burger, salad and 2 beers!!). The dorms are...

We moved from the Casa del Sol Hostel and stayed in a under maintained very basic private double in a separate building (no facilities) across the main road and around the corner. The room was not very nice and the building old and desolate. You have to carry your bedding including pillows and towels with you and return them at...

This could be such a great place if the owners just invested a little more. The mattresses are really terrible with springs sticking out which make you scared to get pinched while you sleep. The bedclothes are terrible one piece thing with sheet and cover sawn together and sawn in pillow case. Very uncomfortable but I understand the benefit for...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Weary Traveler Hostel Tulum was started by backpackers for backpackers back in the year 2000. The hostel was built around what they themselves wanted to find in a good hostel when they were traveling. A good social vibe A book exchange A bar with backpacker prices Communal Kitchen (loaded with free spices, salt, pepper) Full Cook Your Own Breakfast Free Rice, Pasta and lentils for dinner Good Advice on Tours and Activities Some aspects of the Weary Traveler Hostel Tulum appear to be unique but they are not. Many of them came from other hostels where we had stayed long before we dreamed of opening a hostel in Tulum. For example the Burn Your Own BBQ was inspired by the Bondi Beach Hotel's incredible steak barbi setup inside the bar. Huge, beautiful cuts of beef were in a display fridge that was part of the bar. You would say, "Yeah, give me that one!" and huge chunk of raw red meat came at you on a platter. It was your job to cook it how you wanted it. The Weary Traveler Hostel Tulum has changed, evolved, gone back to our roots and changed again and again over the years. We have always tried to evolve as a hostel, stay ahead of the competition and anticipated the changing needs and desires of our guests. So welcome to The Weary Traveler Hostel Tulum, mi casa es su casa! John, one of the originals from way back when. ... more   less
