If staying in Tulum on a budget then mamas home is ideal. The breakfast included in the price are amazing, different everyday, fresh and delicious. The staff are so friendly and helpful and always happy to chat through your travel plans and make recommendations. The hostel itself has a beautiful communal courtyard. It's just wonderful!

Great, friendly staff and the best breakfast you've probably ever had in a hostel...thank you!

Really enjoyed my time here. Jose is mega friendly and would always help with any questions. The breakfasts are amazing, a different one everyday and always fresh. One of the best aspects is you can have fun and meet people as a solo traveller, but after 11 the music stops so you can go to bed in peace or carry on the party elsewhere. Ended up staying longer as the hostel and tulum are great!

Amazingly sociable hostel. Met the best people and with the music / socialising ending at 11 it means you can have a quiet night or go to the local mojito bar to kick on. The staff are great at giving advice and breakfast was the best I've had at a Mexican hostel. Can't always stay that extra night if you change your mind as it's so popular (and you will stay longer than you planned to) so book for longer than you think you need to!

The best hostel I've ever stayed at. The atmosphere was fantastic, the breakfasts every morning were unbelievable (I stayed 11 nights, and it was something different and delicious every day), and the staff were all really helpful. The location is great too, it's in town but very easy to get to the beach, ruins, cenotes and other attractions. Do yourself a favour and book now, instead of waiting until halfway through your stay in Tulum, when you're sick of hearing other travellers rave about it.

The only hostel to stay in Tulum!! Feels like home, cool vibes, amazing breakfast and little events each night to bring everyone together. Jose does everything he can to make sure your stay is amazing, I'll be coming back here many times in the future!

We stayed in this hostel in October this year and it was amazing. Absolutely everything about it was great. Great location, facilities, breakfast... and the staff (especially Jose and Al) were unbelievably helpful and friendly. It was also a nice size hostel too - not to small, but not too big... the place had a lot of charm. Staff were great and gave really great info on things to do in Tulum, places to go to eat and party etc. Highly recommend!!!!

Jose was extremely helpful, particularly when my girlfriend was sick he was very considerate even offering a special plain breakfast to help out. Would recommend this place to anyone even before that.

Very nice knowledgable staff. Great breakfast. Free water. Daily activities. Good social area with hammocks. Afternoon tea and cake a nice touch. Stayed in many hostels, first time I've felt the need to leave a review.

Mama's home is situated a couple of blocks from the main road, which means it is in a quieter neighbourhood but still easy to reach the the centre of Tulum and all of it's bars, shops, and places to eat. José, the guy who runs it, and his other staff are very friendly and welcoming, not one person excluded, which in turn creates a very friendly and open atmosphere. This is a very well run hostel, it is cleaned daily, there is an excellent (included) breakfast, and events in the evening.

A home away from home. A great place to meet other travellers, and the hostel has a really friendly feel. Breakfasts are very yummy, communal outside area great. Jose is wonderful, very friendly and makes you feel right at home. Alan Jose's wingman deserves his own shout out for being fab and again making me feel very welcome throughout my stay. Cannot recommend this hostel enough, especially if you are travelling on your own as you will 100% love it. See you at Christmas Mama's home. X

Brilliant hostel all round - great location (10min walk to ADO Bus) close to loads of great restaurants and 5-10min walk to bike hire, also right near collectivo for Akumal (awesome beach - turtles!), brilliant staff who work tirelessly to make the hostel super fun and give it a great atmosphere, very clean, the six bed dorm room has awesome a/c and is nice and cool, great breakfast (different every day) - cannot recommend this place highly enough. Would have loved to stay longer.

2 blocks from main street, everything we need in walking distance. Staff very good, Jose is very very nice. Excelent Wifi and there are 2 PC´s we can use. Tea time everyday from 5 to 7 PM. In Mama´s Home you arrive as a guest and leave as a friend.

Jose is the man! Turned up to Tulum not having done any research and he planned our 4 days there. Extremely helpful, nice, and great place to stay!

Had a great time here, excellent vibe encouraged by all the staff eg movie nights, awesome breakfasts and generally just interacting with guests which you don't often see due to language barriers or in jaded hostel staff. The 6 person dorm with aircon was awesome, heaps of bathrooms never had to wait, very clean, kitchen looked well equipped, good sized common areas including big courtyard. Easy walk to the bus station. I would vigorously recommend this place.

Breakfasts are second to none. Imaginative ,wholesome filling. Quite exciting anticipating each mornings breakfast. Atmosphere is compelling, hard to leave. Booked for 2 nights stayed for 12!!. Met people here who have returned time and again. Jose and all the staff go to ultimate lengths to ensure your comfort and your trip memorable. This from 2 retired ladies travelling in uncharted waters, feeling at home in Central America.
