Unfortunally I could only stay one night. Super nice stuff and super sympathic ambiente :)


Overall good hostel but I wish they swept the dorms daily or at least left a broom since there was a lot of sand on the floor. Could also use more fans in the dorm rooms. Also it is important to tell people that the kitchen has hours, especially for those leaving before 7am - I had to leave my food behind because the kitchen was closed.


Tribu Hostel is more a family than a hostel. Right next to the beach, activities every day, chilling areas, good facilities... All this plus the amazing staff/volunteers will make it tough to leave the place. Definitevely coming back! See you soon guys!


Very good hostel with great staff and a really nice vibe. I like many others stated longer than originally planned!


Great, modern, super clean hostel. But the Mosquitos are a killer with no indoor communal area to chill out in.


The security wasn't as tight as some hostels we've been to, but we had no problems. I think the staff should wear a little paper badge or a pin, because it was hard to tell who worked there and who was just hanging out. The island is amazing, but the bugs are voracious. I think it would be a good idea to screen in the upper or lower porch area, it would be a relief to hang out and not use bug spray for a part of the day. Even if the fans worked up top deck would help. Nice kitchen great staff.


One of the best/nicest Hostels I have ever been to. Thx a lot to the staff.

An awesome hostel with a lot of love and colors... But what make this hostel an amazing place, is the staff and the plenty activities that are organized every single day to make our experience even better. Super recommended!!

Maybe i expected too much, but i didnt enjoy tribu. The "helpers" who were there for renovations were very closed off and didn't make anyone feel welcome. The bar was closed the entire time (without any compensation), the wifi is only in the common area so everyone is always online. There is no atmosphere which is sad because it has the makings of a fantastic hostel experience for travellers. I heard ida y vuelta is a better hostel, however i ended up leaving tribu to stay with a local friend x


Great place to stay but would like breakfast too


it's a great hostel on a great island. Hammocks all over the place and superclose to the beach. Nice staff. I mean hostel is great, maybe a bit big and kitchen a bit dirty. But that's normal, and other than that, brilliant.


Great hostel for solo travellers, very chilled out place on this beautiful island. Rooms are basic but fine, nice big kitchen and bar, awesome hammock area. Would definitely recommend this hostel!


Great location, just steps from a beautiful beach. Very friendly and helpfull staff. Can't wait to go back!
