The owners and the hostel are amazing. The dorm had aircondition, you get bikes to ride into town for free, breakfast was delicious and the location next to the ruins was great. There is also a pool. Make sure to get off from the collectivo at the ruins and don't take the whole trip to town.

We had great stay this hostel. The staff were very accommodating when we asked to arrive a day later than planned. We liked it so much here that we ended up staying an extra night too. The bikes are a fantastic way of exploring the local area and the pool is a great refresher any time of the day. The breakfast is excellent and the owners are super friendly and even organised BBQ while we were here.

Fantastic place! Great location only a 5 minute bike ride from the beach and ruins,. Akumal beach is a 20 min collectivo ride and highly recommended for swimming with turtles and the reef. We had a super clean, secure room with air con, wifi & hot water, beautiful refreshing pool, great communal area where you can meet other travellers, fully equipped kitchen, AMAZING free breakfasts, water and coffee available, free bike!! We loved our 4 nights at Lobo Inn- thanks again Cynthia and Wolf 😉

Excellent hostel, the atmosphere is great and the owners are really polite and always answer your questions. It's a little far away from the main town but the free bike rental solves that problem. Totally recommended...

The highlights to this stay are the common area, the pool, and the breakfast. The staff were perfectly helpful. I do think the shared dormitory is in poor condition. The mattresses and bunks are very old and becoming rusty. The bathroom is very small and cramped and the light doesn't work. the room has a scent of sewage. There is no furniture in the room to put one's things. The air conditioning does not work adequately for the space. It's so poor that a direct fan may be better.

Alot of construction going on, the pool was getting fixed amongst other things - drills etc were going all day. None of this was mentioned at the time of the booking which I thought was poor because it effected my stay there. Apart from that, kitchen is good, free water, free bikes, close to the beach and riding distance from town. Staff gave helpful advice though one lady refused to let my friend keep the bike past check out even after being offered money when there were plenty extra bikes.

The location is quite great to see the ruins and go to the beach but it´s close to the road so quite noisy. They rent bikes for free during our stay which is very nice and practical cause it´s not close to the center and shops (walking). But the staff is not very flexible. The open area is nice. the room has good air conditionner and the beds are ok. Good value for money

It is close enough to the beach but far from town, what helps are the bikes they let you borrow. Would be nice if it was closer to town for more food options.

We stayed in private room w ac. Very comfy bed, ac worked very well. Toilet is basically part of the room, so smells will travel around. Also, toilets door is seethrough, so not recommended for people who might be shy or just met each other. Breakfast was really very good, nice change from the usual grub and so nicely presented! Owners very friendly. Location is good, you can walk to beach or town in 20 minutes, but after dark have to take taxi, as no streetlights. Taxi from town 50 pesos.

Lobo Inn is the perfect place to stay in Tulum! It is close to the ruins and the beach and you can rent bikes for free there. The breakfast is amazing and the owners are friendly and give you really helpful advice what to do in and around Tulum. We stayed there twice, because you can get easily to the airport from Tulum, so we spent our last days there.

Awesome staff. Great breakfast and location (for the ruins and the public tight beach). Room we had was private (hardly). No air con, so get ready to sweat and the pool is empty. Waaaaaay over priced for what's on offer. Free bikes are epic.

This was my third stay at the Lobo this year. And I will be back next year. You can't go wrong with free breakfast and free bike. And Mr. Lobo fixed my broken reading glasses! What for can a traveler ask more? Thank you Mr. Lobo! By the way, they are in the middle of renovation. I am really looking forward to see the finished product next year. It will be beautiful. Highly recommend this hostel.

Very close to the beach and Tulum ruins: about a 10 min walk or 2 minutes by bike (free bikes make transport very easy). Delicious breakfast (one of the best I have ever eaten in hostels), friendly atmosphere, clean room and extremely friendly, helpful and interesting owners/staff.

Just do not go there! Had booked a deluxe bed room with en-suite bath room and got this: - Mold in room - terrible stomach problems after breakfast from hostel - en-suite is a joke, you had the toilet in the same room - doors could have been easily broken up, everyone could get into that area - way to expensive for what they offer - staff did not even know when I had checked in, did not get my name right and thought I was someone else - it really felt as if I only was a cash cow/making tourist

Cute little hostel, easy to get into town but a little further than most would usually be. Can jump in a taxi for about 40 or 10mins walk. A little further to the beach! The pool was empty when we stayed (in March) - one of the main reasons we booked this accom :( Breakfast was good! Very close to the Mayan ruins but can get very busy so get up early to visit without the crowds. Wifi pretty poor. Rooms ok

The positive things: Close to ruins, you could rent a nice bike for free, you could use the kitchen and the coffee was good; but the place was nothing special, there were better places downtown and cheaper. The woman who was working there was loud and seemed bossy and bitchy, the bathrooms were awful, smelly, dirty, and it took time to get a shower since the pressure was very low. The rooms (dorms) were awful too everything looked like in the state of falling apart.

Really made you feel at home! Breakfast every morning was so good and free bikes made transport so easy! Thank you Lobo Inn for a great stay x
