Property Description

Property Information:

The property offers rustic cabañas with beds equipped with mosquito nets as well as camping space, communal baths and showers, and a comedor overlooking the ocean.
All bedrooms are built and decorated with natural materials such as bamboo and palm.
Our goal is to protect Nature, we recycled materials as much as possible and keep water consumption down to a minimum.

The owner, laid-back Emiliano, will cook for you unforgettable meals with fresh local ingredients and help you to navigate the area, which he knows like the back of his hand. For an holistic healing experience, try the Temazcal, a prehispanic sauna, or a relaxing massage, perfect to recover from travel fatigue and to fully enjoy an evening by the sea...!

Mazunte is becoming increasingly involved in eco-tourism: you can take a boat trip through the mangroves or along the coast where you can see the local wildlife, such as dolphins, turtles and whales. Mind-blowing Punta Cometa is at walking distance, don't miss the sunset from here.

    The staff was so nice. Emiliano know so much about not only Mazunte, but the nearby towns. He gave me great recommendations for many wonderful meals. He also helped me a lot while I was there, including showing me how to use aloe vera as a plant and calling for a taxi for me to make sure I’d have transportation the day I left. All of this even though they had just suffered some damage from a hurricane. I definitely intend to go back and stay at Cabañas Balamjuyuc.

    Emiliano is the best host you could possibly hoped for, the view is amazing and if you are looking for a chill hostel in nature, this is the place. I will definitely come back there next time I’m in mazunte :)

    Awesome stay! Great vibes and just super chill. No lockers available but everyone was comfortable leaving things out. I had no issues with security. Checking in and checking out is pretty informal. The hostel has great views, great vibes, and good people. Enjoyed my stay.

    Really rustic hostel, feels more like a camping experience with dorms instead of tents - prob not for everyone, but I liked it (though there were tons of cool people staying when I was there). There is a communal kitchen you can cook in and an outdoor grill. Great view of the water, you cant see the sunset but it's on the way to Punta Cometa which has the best view in the whole town. All the beds and stuff have fly nets so it's not bad at night. Super nice and cool staff that we hung out with

    Hostel located almost at the top of a hill so the views are amazing (the walk to get there isn't so amazing). It is a rustic hostel so only stay here if you're really into nature. When I arrived I wasn't informed of any of the facilities of the hostel (wifi, bathrooms, kitchen etc) and the check in/out is a little disorganized. Nice experience after all.

    Very Good

    It’s in a lovely setting and Mazunte is so special. The 4 bed room was extremely basic and we did appreciate the rural nature of it, However our check in was a bit disorganised and we were asked almost every day we were there whether we’d paid and how many nights we were staying. It just felt a bit disorganised. Shame as it’s a very nice place. I’d advise staying in the nicer two bed room rather than the bigger ones that are more basic.

    Very idyllic place with a great view. Unfortunately, there were no facilities for cooking, or food to buy in their 'cafe' as described, which made our stay there difficult. The owner seemed nice but the rest of the staff was very rude.

    Unfortunately, we had a really bad experience at this hostel. Everything was very dirty and we also didn't have water in the morning. Furthermore, the prepayment we already made, didn't get accepted from the hostel, so we paid the prepayment on top of the amount. The staff wasn't nice and we didn't feel very welcome. We have really a lot experiences with hostels so far, but this was really the worst I ever stayed! We really wouldn't recommend to stay at this place!
