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)

This hostel is between town and beach. The location is perfect for all kind of activities especailly beacuse you get free bikes. If you wanna go any further all the collectivos stop infront of the hostel. The staff is really helpful and really friendly as well. Please consider that this is a hostel that is basic but nice. Consider as well that they have new owners that are starting to reinstall all. I had a great time there.

Really good staff , nice and helpful! The location is really close to the ruines and beach, and moreover there are bikes thar you can borrow for free at the hostel! Thus, it can't be easier to grab a colectivo from the hostel to get almost anywhere you want!

We didn't like our room very much, it was a bungalow on stilts that shook constantly with every passing truck, the shower leaked and we shared the room with some wildlife that I would have preferred to stay outdoors... BUT the staff were very friendly, they cooked a fantastic breakfast each day and were ideally situated for visiting the beach & ruins.

The family that runs this place is very nice and they are very helpful. However, the hostel is not in the location listed on the map. It is actually in front of the main street to get to the ruins, far from downtown and beach area. As a single woman traveling alone, I did not feel comfortable coming or going past dark. They did have nice hot showers and free bike rentals.

You are awesome. Free bicycle is really a plus. The only thing is that we couldn't use the pool and i kind of chose this hostel for that. Bbq night was very good, bringing everybody together

it is very difficult to find good money for value in tulum but lobo inn is it. its the closest to the beach as it gets and they give you free bikes to get there which is a HUGE plus, since every other hostel rents them. the room looked kinda rambly assembled and the toilet was inside the room, separated only by a thin linen "door". other than that though, i highly reccomend the place, the family is really helping, there are nice common areas and the breakfast was very nice

The open air environment is nice and having bicycles to get around is definitely the reason this hostel is so nice. You can take a bike to the beach or to town, which helps with getting to enjoy Tulum. Nice ambiance: I painted a mural while staying there and I loved being able to contribute to the overall beauty of the place. The staff is sociable and very real, nice people. The breakfasts are varied and filling. The only thing I'd change is the chlorinated water but everything else is wonderful

Nice location even tough it's out of the city centre. The beach is so close by bike with is a plus! City center is reached by free bikes (ok standard) in 10 mins. Friendly staff and rooms (private) had a nice atmosphere and were clean.

Staff were very friendly, free bikes were useful, breakfast was good and so was the atmosphere. However, the bathrooms were cramped and dirty, there were a lot of bugs and the rooms weren't great.

I had the best french toast here and the barbecue they made was really great - the best salad I ate in Mexico. The atmosphere is really great.

This hostel has a lot of good aspects and could be the best if they just smartened the place up a bit and cleaned it on a more regular basis. The family are amazing - offered to cook for us when we showed up late the first night and one of them picked us up when they saw us walking back from town one day. Free coffee all day, good wifi, big kitchen, amazing breakfast (choc and banana crepes and spanish tortilla), free bikes to use, super close to the beach and ruins, big lockers, free water.
