We arrived at Holbox expecting to stay for 3 nights and stayed instead for 8. The Hostel is perfectly situated for ease to the beach and the owners have created a fantastic space & atmosphere in which fun can be had and friendships made. Look no further for your stay on Holbox.

Great very friendly people. Poor aircon, and annoying kitchen closes at 11pm. Otherwise fantastic stay.

Hola amiga! Thank you for your comment! We appologize if the aircon wasn't working at it's fullest during your stay but we've had maintenance done now and also installed a new aircon in the 6 bed dorm nextdoor, so hopefully the temperature is a bit more bearable now. Hope to see you here again one day!

Hola amigo, thank you for your comment! We've taken your words into consideration and have now installed airconditioning in the 6 bed dorm as well. Hope to see you back here at Tribu one day in the future! :)

I highly recommend Tribu enough. The owners at Tribu were friendly and accommodating. I would see them daily with their two young boys and dog. They fostered a welcoming place of serenity with loads of fun and I met new/interesting people - some of which have become great friends who I am still in contact with. Tribu has scheduled bar activities for those looking to mingle and I did Yoga overlooking the Caribbean on the terrace. To me,Tribu represent fun, safety and a break from stresses of NYC

Great hostel over all, but I wish they improve some conditions. I wish they had a kettle for heating water for making the morning coffee/tea. Heating water in a pot on gas stove is extremely time consuming. Also, critical lack of wifi. The wifi was in and out every 30 seconds. Also, in the area where wifi is available, there are only 3 plugs!!! There was a constant line up of people who wanted to plug in their electronic devises. Same story in the dorm. However, their staff is super amazing!!

Great hostel! We had a really good time, the whole hostel was very clean and the staff super friendly and helpful! The private room was very nice, nearly like in a hotel. They have their own bar, a terrasse, yoga classes, tours,... and the hostel is located close to the beach and the town center. Would definitely stay there again!

Awesome hostel. Great kitchen facilities (kitchen locked in early hours of morning so don't forget to claim your stuff out of the fridge if you have an early bus!). A little paradise on holbox. Shower and dorms great. Staff lovely on arrival. Highly recommend staying here.

I have stayed in many hostels all over the world and this one is without a doubt the best so far. The staff is great, everything is very clean, colourful and beautiful decorated, every night there are activities in the hostel bar. The island itself is the absolute paradise-Really cant think of anything negative

Good hostel

Nice social vibe, great location. Its annoying that if you want to use the computeres they provide, you have to pay. And i would like that they serve breakfast, even if i had to pay one extra dollar. Its a small island, it'd make easier the start up of the day for travelers. Good bar and beautiful facilities

Tribu was awesome. Staff was friendly and I really enjoyed the chill atmosphere of the place. Beach nearby is not the best but the walk to punto coco is worth it. The reception doesn't open up till 9am and there is no overnight staff so don't get to the hostel at 7am like I did.

By far the best hostel I have stayed at. The facilities were great. The staff were great. The guests were great. I cant fault anything about this place. I had planned to stay for 5 nights and ended up staying for just over 2 weeks and still didnt want to leave. Thanks Tribu for being so awesome!

This is one of the few hostels in the world that is truly memorable. Mia, the owner is beyond wonderful. She cares about her guests, and it shows most during times of emergency like the one we experienced during my stay there. All staff go above and beyond to make our stay most pleasant. I highly recommend this hostel. I will be back next year.

I really enjoyed this funky spot! Despite the incredible social scene of the place, I managed to get some excellent sleep going to bed rather early compared to most of the other guests. While people are here to interact, I found the atmosphere to be very respectful. It's a pretty hip place. I do wish there was a little more structure for those leaving early as 2 of the 3 buses/ferries are scheduled to leave before reception or the kitchen opens.
