Bathrooms could be more clean, brekky very good, staff/owners so amazing, perfect location, amazing with the free bikes, comfy beds, excellent location, 10min bike to town and 5 to the ruins (quick bike ride) Really value for the money, and coffee all day :) recommend this hostel if you want something simple but good!


Run by a family, homemade breakfast made every morning was great, the swimming pool is beautiful, clean, and perfect because it's very hot!! Really cool travelers go there, free bike rentals, and staff was helpful and nice!


Awesome hostel with a nice common area outside, a kitchen, nice big lockers in the room. The staff go out of their way to help you. They let us keep our stuff locked in a locker in the dorm room we stayed in free of charge while we went to the ruins and then let us use the shower and kitchen when we came back and allowed us to use the bikes all day even though we had technically checked out. We just hung out there using all of the facilities for free while we waited to catch an over night bus.


Lobo Inn is such a great deal! You get a bike (which is totally necessary in Tulum) and a great breakfast with your stay. The owners and staff and super sweet and helpful, as well. Whenever I go to Tulum I stay at Lobo Inn, I always tell people to stay there.


Great little quiet hostel near the beach and mayan ruins. Free bike rental makes it pretty easy to get around. Owners and staff are very friendly and eager to answer questions. I would come back for sure


Love the community of people and the staff at Lobo. Free breakfast was delicious and different. Free bikes made for fun trips to the beach and to the town (lighting is poor on the way back, I'd recommend coming back before sun down). Very basic accommodation, no hot water but we loved Lobo Inn anyway!


Perfect Atmosphere, extraordinary value for money, outstanding staff. Probably the best hostel I ever stayed with.


Stayed here for five nights and had a great time! The hostel is located about 20-25 minutes walking distance from the city centre, however the hostel provides free bikes which makes transportation very easy. Another big plus is that the ruins are very close - about 10 minutes walking. The hostel has a nice outdoor area and a kitchen available for use from 11am to 11pm. The breakfast is great and different everyday. The rooms are standard, but bring mosquito spray!


Really lovely hosts though I did feel a bit uninformed at times but it was a perfect location (feels like you're in the middle of a highway until you suss out the beach and town and realise you're right inbetween :) :) breakfast and bikes were a dream!


The lobo inn was a great hostel - very central to both the town and the beach. The bikes included in the price make it a great draw, and Mr Lobo and Mama are very accommodating . Thanks again !


We stayed here a couple nights to see the ruins which was a 20min walk away! We were really impressed with the fresh and delicious breakfasts the staff prepared every morning. The staff were always bubbly and helpful! Overall we recommend staying here for a couple nights.


Best place to stay in Tikal. I felt safe, big lockers, enough bathrooms, & outlets. Breakfast was creative & filling. Coffee tea water available all day. Bike incl with reservation was crucial. Location between ruins & main city was awesome - you were never too far from the ruins, the beach, or the main drag. Common area encouraged hanging out & socializing. Shared kitchen & fridge was amazing. There were certainly things to be improved, but felt it was more about the city infra than Lobo.


The hotel is very clean, great outdoor space & dipping pool for people to socialize. You are literally across the road from the road that leads to the ruins which is about a 15 minute walk. They have bikes for free use which is also awesome. From the ruins the beach is about a 10 minute walk so it's easy to get to the beach by bike or walking from the hostel. To center it's 60pesos for taxi/20pesos collectivo. Breakfast was super, dorms clean w comfy beds, must bring your own towels


A lovely homely hostel. The staff were all very friendly and accomodating, and the free breakfasts were delicious. The outside courtyard was great for laid back socialising with a vibrant mix of older and younger travellers. The location provided excellent access to the ruins and main beaches, with the town centre only a short bike ride away (free bikes provided). Noise was not an issue, and the hostel was kept extremely clean. Wifi could be a bit dodgy at times. Would definitely recommend!

You could manage to clead MUCH more and take care of the facilities, it was very humid and the cleaning was really really poor. We couldn´t take the thought of showering and going to the bathroom. We thought the staff was nice and the effort and making a good atmosphare was really nice, but the amount of torn downess of the facilities and lack of cleaningsness in the bahtrooms, and kitchen made the experience traumatic.

Owner Comment (Hide)
normalmente no acostumbro contestar a los comentarios de los clientes pero me parece un poco incomprensible que alguien que hace un check inn a las 10 pm se va de fiesta por lo cual no estuvo mas de cuatro horas en el hostel, pueda hacer una valoracion tan severa y sin ningun tipo de argumento especialmente un 31 de diciembre


Great people, perfect location and the best breakfast! You can rent bikes for free to bike to the pyramides - awesome! :)


I really liked the staff and the environment at Lobo Inn. The rooms could be better and the mattress was horrible. The owner told me they are going to change it. The location is good, near the Tulum Mayan ruins, and the good thing is that they give you a bicycle for no extra cost and a different breakfast everyday.


We stayed in this place for one night. It is quite close to the Tulum ruins and the owner provides bike for free to ride to the supermarket (1.5km) or Tulum downtown (3.5km). They provided great breakfast and everybody is friendly. I would definitely recommend this place.


The atmosphere and services offered (breakfast, travel advice, etc) were great. The hosts were very welcoming. The facilities were a bit basic.
