Hostel crucero is very chill, it is a nice place to sleep, take shower and stay close to tulum ruins, its great they include breakfast and bike so you can ride to downtown or beach. The staff is very kind and it was great to meet Orlando and Antonio the owners

Tulum is not a place with good bargain hotels. Deal with it. So I wanted a 4 sleeping room with a car park and breakfast included and within walking distance from the Tulum ruins. Picky I know... Ok so I didn't expect much and risked it. Did you see the houses where the majority of the mexicans live in while...

A difficult hotel to rate. Pros: Super friendly staff, free bikes (great to visit Tulum ruins and beaches), well located, good wifi, fantastic breakfast, some nice decoration touches, large rooms, free parking, nice garden to hang out or for breakfast. Cons: Not very clean, poorly illuminated room, no hot water, many mosquitoes (this one not their fault I suppose).

This hostal is the best option to stay at. I stayed with my Boyfriend for 3 days and those were the most magical days in Tulum. In the morning you get breakfast which could be 3 different options, there is coffee as part of the deal in the mornings as well, which is perfect for me because I love coffee....

The dorm room was the most crowded and hot hostel room that I have ever stayed in. There were four bunk beds crammed into a room that should only have two, and there was one fan that barely worked. The room was also quite dirty, and the bathroom almost never had toilet paper. The staff was generally friendly except for...

It has been a really positive experience, the owner is such a nice person, very kind and friendly. The hostel is clean, with hot water and laundry, and if you want also air conditioning. The location is very good, closed to the ruins, the beach, the supermarket and to el pueblo. They even give you a bicycle for free, that...

I spend one horrible night at this hostel and it doesn't even deserve a single star. I stayed in a dorm and it was by far the worst dorm i've stayed in after five months of travelling centralamerica - small, hot, and unbeleavingly dirty. The bathroom didn't have a sink and it was disgusting all around, the toilet bin hadn't...

Tulum was one of the places I was really looking forward to on our 3 week trip around Mexico, Belize and Guatemala. The beach was paradise, the ruins were amazing, what a shame about the hotel (or more like run down hostel). The only good points to this place was that it is a good distance to the beach and...
