Stayed for two nights, the hostel location is good with a short way to ruins beach and village. Also the hostel offers free bikes which is very convenient. The staff was okay, and the athmosphere was also okay, but the facilities where very dirty and the hostel itself was not so clean.

Is a bad experience. We didnt' get the right information for tourism and the security is bad!

Pretty basic hostel close to the beach and ruins (about a 10 min walk). Fine if you're using a bike, if you were on foot only the walk would be long enough to be annoying. Awesome, awesome breakfast (crepes first day, delecious omelette second day!), hostel facilities nothing fancy but do-able. Use mosquito repellant at dusk!

The atmosphere is super. The woman who leads the hostel really cares for her guests. They even serve breakfast while you can talk outside to the other travellers. The cleanliness was ok. Probably the least clean accomodation I stayed in during my stay in Mexico. Also you have to give them your passport as a deposit for getting your bike. And they store them in an unsafe place in the kitchen whre everybody can take it.

Great location, especially as one has to either walk or bike everywhere. Having the bikes was excellent and enabled us to go to the Cenote and to the beach. The breakfast was the best we have had. Compliments to the chef! Place could do with a really good scrubbing down in the dorms and washroom as not the cleanest place we have been in and yet doable! Outdoor area was nice! Would be great to have information board with location of cenote and other necessities (i.e. grocery store)

I never saw a hostel that did not accept debit or credit card. Localization is good, price is not expensive, but it doesn't have much to offer. The room was dark, too hot, and the fan was really noisy. There are some garbage place in the back, and the smell is horrible. Our room was in an elevated cabaña and we could feel the room swinging really often. My backpack was eaten probably by a rat (we did not see it). The breakfast is good, and bike is free, but you have to leave the passport.

Cynthia is an awesome person. She is always there to answer questions and she will even make calls for you. But the hostel is not in a good location. It's along the freeway, away from the main drag. And the common area is outside only. The dorm rooms are ok, but the private rooms kind of suck. They are not worth the extra $. Also, the rooms don't seem like they were cleaned before arrival. The free bikes are great, give you passport for colateral, but she is organized and won't lose it.

A really pleasant hostel with very helpful and friendly staff. Free use of bikes is a bonus. Also, delicious breakfasts.

Great place to stay if you are visiting the ruins and beach. Plus free bicycles to move around. Free breakfast in the morning is incredible and they change it up every day. Rooms were ok, massive bunk beds. Staff were super friendly and social with the guests. Nice pool, decent book exchange and the owners even had a massive grill dinner for everyone one night. Would totally go back.

One of the most personal hostel I ever been to. very very friendly people . free bike , excellent breakfast witch is served in the morning. They real try to talk to every body about the day or where you from or go. The hostel is just around the ruïnes of Tulum and close to a very beautifull beach. I have promised them to be back when ever I can . love them .

The owner and staffs are very friendly and helpful. The dorm beside the pool is very humid and the restroom is dirty and smelly. Lots of misquotes at night that bite me and woke me up several times. Lockers are provided but you need to have your own lock. Good atmosphere, lots of traveller around to talk to. Shower is surprisingly good though.

The place is quite charming, but it lacks some kind of "soul", juste like Tulum lacks in general. I really appreciated renting a bike for free, though! It was in great condition. However, one toilet for about 6 to 8 people is not necessarily the best. Also, the staff - while friendly - is not much aware of what to do around there, or how to get to the different locations.

The free bikes are a HUGE bonus. The breakfast each morning is something different and leagues above most hostels. The staff was a bit quirky but very nice.

Great Hostal. Definitely stay here! For the price of a bike rental, which you will definitely want in Tulum, you get a bed, and amazing home cooked breakfast, and a bike to ride! Can't beat that value.

The room downstairs back behind the pool area, has massive amounts of insects that come out every night, and into the room, and into the bottom bunks. get a privaye room upstaris. But the staff is very sweet and have free bikes available.

Lobo Inn is situated a bit out of town but you soon realise this is more of a bonus than a hinderance. The free bikes and amazing breakfast, just make you feel like you are at home. I spend my time going to the beach and jumping in and out of their pool. Anything I needed the staff would go out of their way to help me including adaptors for my laptop and free food when they where cooking dinners. They where my family in Mexico.

The hostel average, we had a private room that was horrible: it was very unclean, the room smelled very mouldy and there were a lot of bugs on the floor, so we ended up changing hostels after 3 nights. The common area is very nice, excellent breakfeast, excellent kitchen. Location was beside the highway a short bicycle ride to the beach. To the city centre also good distance with bikes (though at dark we chose to use the bus or a taxi)
