The hostel was quite quiet when we were there, good rooms, comfy beds, clean bathrooms, good breaky. On the south end of the Main Street but ok if you hire a bike.

It's an absolutely gorgeous hostel, and the staff are all really helpful and friendly. It's right outside the main part of Tulum, but it's really easy to walk to Tulum town, or take a collectivo to the beach or ruins.

Thank you very much for your comments. We're really glad you liked our hostel and we hope to see you again sometime!


Quiet, quaint hostel with nice rooms and nice staff. Its a little far from the beach so I highly suggest to hire bikes. Only a short ride to the centre of town though. They have a mango tree so when in season you get to eat them for breakfast.

If you want to chill out and relax in a lovely Garden. Here is a brilliant place to do it. The hostel is inspired by Frida Kahlo and has a really nice vibe to it. The one downside is the distance away from the ruins in Tulum.


This hostel has a great vibe and a great setup. Beautiful interior courtyard and common areas. The disadvantage of this place is it's location (sorta at the very end of town) and it's proximity to loudness. It seems that every single dog in Mexico resides within five square kilometers of this hostel, judging by the amount of barking that went on during the night. Aside from that, it was generally a pleasure to come back to and escape the heat. Showers cabins/stalls need to be replaced though.


Wonderful hostel; loved the outdoor space. Staff was relaxed and helpful. Everything was very organized. Across the street from an excellent restaurant, El Camello Jr. and close to bike/moped shops and lots of other stores. I'll definitely be back. Thank you!

Although the rooms are clean, there were quite a few cockroaches and a lot of mosquitos. The staff is really friendly and helpful,the room is spacious and comfortable. Although they advertise that breakfast is included,it only consists of bread (a very bad quality one), jam,banana,coffee andere milk.


The bathrooms are in dire need of cleaning. Did not even want to stand in them. Plus the cleaning service only comes when you check out so the floors are always covered in sand and very dirty which gets into your bed. Overall not a good value for money. Staff is too busy watching videos to be of any help. They also close the kitchen early which cuts off your access to clean drinking water which you really need in a hot tropical country and doesn't reopen until 8am the next day.
