Gorgeous hostel on an amazing island. Kitchen is great, staff very helpful (free sweets on check in), nice hammock area, bar and roof terrace, very clean, free water, good cinema room, amazing location and great atmosphere. Few things they could do to make it the best hostel yet - include a free breakfast, bigger lockers (could only fit my small bag in), more plugs in the room and wifi in the room. Do the whale shark trip through them as other trips didn't do everything that we did.

Amazing hostel, we felt like at home! The atmosphere is incredible and wait till you see all the hammocks. They offer a lot of fun activities, it's just a good decision to stay at tribu! I fell in love with that place...

this hostel is truly one of the best, i stayed in a private room with my boyfriend and it was lovely. Isla Holbox is one of the most beautiful places on earth, and the hostel will set up a swimming with whale sharks tour for you which was amazing. The staff are super friendly and accommodating and there's always a different and awesome activity going on in the upstairs bar that kept the place interesting. it was also well worth the price. LOVED IT, can't recommend enough!

This is the best hostel I've ever stayed at (and I'm a frequent traveler). First of all, the atmosphere is just awesome - great people and brilliant staff. They have their own bar located at the hostel with descent prices and fun activities, the kitchen area is clean and have all necessary cookware. The suite was better than many hotels. Some of our stuff got stolen on the beach one nigh (not Tribu's fault) and the staff was so helpful throughout the process with the police and everything!

This place cannot be faulted! Extended my stay I loved it that much. And the STAFF ARE SO SO SO AMAZING! Got very ill and as a solo travellor from home isn't the best experience. But the staff made the experience so much more barable, they checked on me all the time, called the doctor, stayed with me and made sure I was never alone! I CANT RECCOMMEND THIS PLACE ENOUGH!! Whatever you do, STAY HERE YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPPOINTED!

At first, they had messed up our reservation for a 6 bed dorm and told us we had to stay in a 10 bed dorm, which was a minor inconvenience. The owner felt so bad about it, she found us in the hostel bar that night, bought us drinks and upgraded us to a private room for our second night for the same price. There are awesome activities every night, a great community atmosphere, and it's 2 seconds from the beach. If you like hanging out with cool people and having drinks, you will like it here!

Tribu is a wonderful place.Can I say more that I returned here again eventhough I live like 10000 kms away. It's like you move in to a colorful magic-castle for a while where you dont need shoes, you cook some food, all day just relaxing and chilling in the hammocks (I wish I had as good afternoon sleeps back at home as I had there in the hammocks!!) or on the beach, or on the roof terrace. Whale shark trips and the planton shining at night are again, sooo unique. The bar is excellent too!

It was my second stay in Holbox at Tribu and there is a reason why I keep coming! Tribu is one of the best hostel I've stayed at in all my travels. It has a great vibe, super chill, close to the beach. These people understand travelers and they have basically created the perfect hostel for them. Their bar is fun and they always have something different every night. It attracts ppl from all over the island so great place to see new faces! Already looking forward for my next stay...
