The beds are really big so if you want to save money share a bed. Hostal Chalupa is also one if the hostels closest to the beach and there is a bike rental just next door which we appreciated very much. Over all a very good hostel!

Tulum is expensive compared to other areas of Mex. so the value of this hostal is more acceptable. Private rooms are located at the entrance near the busy street where the reception, kitchen and social areas are located so noise is an issue. However, with the noisy wall A/C and the large fan running at night it blocks out these noises( ear plugs advised). They have a Mescalaria upstairs- 100 pesos and you select 3 mescals from about 25 and sample them along with the traditional worm salt.

This was one of our favorite hostels. The hostel itself is a good representation of the city: liberal, vegetarian, open minded, and welcoming. The staff went out of their way to make sure we had a good time. The location is perfect for people who wish to visit the ruins/beach and the town for it is situated at the cross roads of all three. The hostel has a mescal bar on the roof, which opens in the evening. Highly recommended.

Friendly and fun staff, good location in between beach, Gran Cenote, Maya ruins and Tulum centrum. I'd stay here again.

The hostel was very clean, the staff were helpful and there's a bar upstairs so there's always someone to talk to. The music was loud on one night but not enough to bother us. The beds are double beds too so great value! The location is a little bit out of the main town but still walking distance and closer to the beach than most other hostels. Would definitely recommend this hostel!

The atmosphere was pleasant here and the staff was nice, but they did mess up our reservation so we ended up having to stay in a dorm for our second night. They did give us our second night free due to their mistake, but we would have bought the dorm in the first place if that's what we wanted. However, its worth the money and if you like cereal for breakfast, go check it out.

Mattresses aren't so good, but great location, friendly staff and a nice bar.

We stayed in a 5-bed dorm and the beds were big. Unfortunately the linens weren't exactly clean. There was also a lot of mould on the walls. The bathroom had a large shower but was also dirty. There was very loud music on the terrace, so you need to party, because there is no way to sleep. The lockers were good enough for a small backpack. Staff was friendly. There is also a kitchen.

The hostel is located at the northern end of the town on the road to the beach (which is > 3km though). There is a supermarket just around the corner. You are not allowed to cook meat in the kitchen (vegetarian cooking only). If you're not a vegetarian this might get cumbersome if you stay a little longer. The Bathrooms were cleaned once a day, which didn't prevent the shower from starting to smell from bad water though. The staff was helpful and gave us maps, directions and tipps.

Good hostel. Was very quiet when we were there - didn't really see anyone else but apart from that couldn't really complain. Helpful staff and good base to go to Coba ruins. Beach is nice and unspoilt.

Huge cockroach in the bathroom... Beds were really big but not very comfortable. Nice rooftop bar - sometimes with travelers from other hostels. Good place to meet people. Breakfast only corn flakes and instant coffee - no toast.

Great atmosphere.you can't cook meat in the kitchen so don't buy any to cook! A bit of a walk from town BUT it's in the middle of everything you'd want to go check out. Hire bicycles! Up stairs bar is pretty cool also!

Nice crowd here. The hostel is well located to explore the Tulum attractions etc. The breakfast was very basic though!

Pretty good hostel midway between the city and the beach, right on the road that will take you to Coba ruins and a number of cenotes. If you have rooms near the entrance, it gets pretty loud and the breakfast is pretty meager but otherwise a good place to stay.
