Great character Hostel. Chelo our hostess was wonderful and loves her guests. Breakfast amazing and was enough for lunch too! Bikes included which was a great bonus which we made good use of. The hostel is next to a main road which did not bother us as we are used to traffic sounds. Lots to do nearby, we cycled to the beautiful Grand Cenote, to the beach and the ruins and caught a "collectivo" bus to Akamal where we swam with turtles. Hostel rents snorkels; much cheaper than on the beach.


Excellent réception, very good breakfeast, beautiful environnment but very very noisy because of the road

We originally booked our stay for 4 nights, but were so incredibly pleased with Posada Los Mapaches that we booked another 4 nights. The owner, Chelo, and her 2 sons were extremely friendly and warm hearted. We felt right at home! The breakfast is amazing and changes every day. Coffee, tea, fresh juice, fresh fruit and main dish. Huge! The facilities are beautiful and constantly cleaned and cared for. Couldn't ask for a better location...literally right across from the ruins. LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!


Chelo and her sons were wonderful! The breakfasts were well presented and delicious. The bicycles were perfect for getting to the ruins, the beach and into town.


The best hostel I have stayed in for many years. Fantastic breakfasts. Chelo and her sons are perfect hosts - very friendly, accommodating and happy to help. I had a really, really great stay. I hope I can return in future! Muchas muchas gracias! ~Oscar.


Chelo was very accommodating and welcoming to my boyfriend and I. The complimentary breakfast was so so delicious and very filling! The rooms had a very rustic feel to them which was perfect for us. The atmosphere was beautiful! The bathrooms and rooms were very clean. If we ever come back to tulum we will be sure to stay with Chelo and her sons!

It was a delight to stay here! Chelo and her son Daniel were very friendly, the homemade breakfast in the morning was delicious, and advice about getting around town with the (included!) bikes was very helpful.


Very nice place to stay on. Chello (the women who own the place) are so amazing. I loved that place!
