I really liked this hostel as the staff were very friendly and they provided a great breakfast as well. Cinthia is a character and speaks great English. The dorms are comfortable and secure and air-conditioned. There's a basic kitchen for guest use and two computers for free internet surfing as well. The courtyard at the front of the hostel is a good place to chill with a beer. The hostel is close to Tulum high street where the bars, restaurants are etc. Highly recommended.
Really enjoyed my stay here. Had a pretty relaxing time, wasn't much of a party hostel but that suited me fine. Great free breakfast and very friendly staff. Nice patio/courtyard for food and drinks also.
The hostel was good, really calm, good breakfast but really small, it just makes you hungry...

Mamas place and their negative attitude and lack of hospitality was a dissappointment .

I'd heard good things about Mama's Home, but there wasn't many people staying when I was there so the atmosphere is probably better usually. The location is great, close to restaurants. There really needs to be a towel provided for the bathroom as it has a pool of water after a few people would shower. A couple of the staff weren't very friendly and you felt like you were a burden when you asked a question. The breakfasts were excellent and free water is a big plus.
I came here midway through a bout of food poisoning. There was no toilet seat, no shower head and the bathroom floor was dirty. Needless to say I had a terrible time. Air con was good though and breakfasts were decent and filling. I changed hostels after a night.
The hostel has a great vibe and the staff is very friendly. The breakfasts are delicious and internet works great in the rooms. The room we stayed was huge and spacious. The only thing we lacked was bathroom towells for the lavatory and the floor. Apart from that our stay was much enjoyed and I'd definetely recommend Mama's home and go back whenever I go back to Tulum!
It was phantastic. Nice staff. Nice Guest. Room really cheap you can choose between van or air condition... The breakfast is included.It changes everey day and the "Mama" servs it on her own for every single person! The beach is close- you can go by bike or collectivo if you are on a budget, but even the taxis are not too expensive. I really enjoed my time and will definitely come back. If you go to Tulum, this is the place to stay!
