Ive been travelling for 5 month from South America to central- and this is the first time I've been told I'm not allowed to leave my bag at the hostel or use the wifi after checkout!! The rooms were full of bugs (like an old barn that somebody put a bed in) Dora the hostel owner was nice at first and breakfast was nice, but this hostel defiantly not worth the amount of money.. Go to weary travel- it is not the best but you have transportation to the beach which saves about 140 pesos for a day
We stayed in a private room here. It was more of a screened in hut. For tulum, the price wasn't bad. Her breakfasts were small. One day we had a roll with jam, juice and a cup of coffee. Kitchen and bathroom weren't bad. The only real problem was the sheer number of mosquitoes. Even though we stayed away most of the day, used mosquito coils and slept with a mosquito net at night we were absolutely covered in bites. There were noticeably more than in the rest of tulum. Dora was very nice.
As ¨rustic¨ as the other reviews indicate, but if you go in expecting that, you will have a wonderful, relaxing stay. Dora is friendly, helpful, and the variety of breakfast (day to day) is a wonderful touch. A quiet seclusion, but only a minute from the main street, and from renting a bike that can get you to the beach, the swimming caves, the ruins, the beach, the beach... Most of the cats will keep to themselves, and not seek pats, but their presence definitely adds to the charm!
Calm Cabins' name does not lie- a very tranquil place to stay. At the time of my stay, I was the only person in the dorm and there was one other person staying in a private room. The bed was comfy, though i think if there were more people in the dorm it would have been a bit hot without a fan all to myself! Bathroom and kitchen are clean. Dora is a great hostess - lovely and helpful and cooks a wonderful breakfast for you each morning. Note: if you are allergic to cats, there are 6 here!
i stayed here for two nights. It was wonderful, located on the back street from the main Tulum ave, so it is quite. The onwer, Donna, was really nice, and her breakfast included was delicious. The facilities was rustic, not the usual, but it was worth the money. I would recommend for any one looking a quite place to stay in the touristy Tulum.
Great Hostel a street back from the main road, was a little hard to find. But the owner Dora was really sweet, she was so helpful with lots of local information and made great breakfasts everyday. The private room was good size and she supplied us with plenty of drinking water.
Dora was very kind ad she and her cats were fabulous hosts. The accommodation was basic, but excellent value and in a good location.
