    Really nice hostel, with a nice staff. The main dorm is of twenty beds well organized so it feels like a 4 to 6 bed-dorm. And the mattresses are really good compared to a lot of other hostels !

    I stayed in a private room in Hostel Sheck, now Malinche, for 8 days. My room is as advertised, clean, with plenty of storage space, and with AC. Good facilities, there is common space you can chill at and cleaning lady cleaning your room everyday. Good location yet quiet at night. Love the staff here, receptionist Gustavo is super friendly and helpful and speaks good English, we became friends by the end of my trip. Overall is a good BnB experience.

    Nice hostel, nice very helpful stuff. Sometimes is a bit loud especially in the morning when people chat downstairs. Good price included pretty good breakfast. The location is very good, close to a salsa bar if you love dancing and many other bars and restaurants.

    Friendly and helpful staff. Clean rooms, huge kitchen and set in a cool area with lots of tropical plants. Good location and only 20-30 minutes by bike to the beach. Very environmentally friendly. Also nice bar area but not the best for non-smokers, perhaps a designated smoking area? Would recommend.

    Good value compared to the average hostel cost in Tulum. Staff are sweet. Breakfast is small but good and I like how it is made for each individual. Wouldn't say there is much of an atmosphere here and the dorm bathroom is pretty grubby. Overall decent place, would stay here again.

    Overall a great place to stay for the price you pay. The showers and restrooms were always clean. Amazing jungle feel. Breakfast was nice. The stuff was amazing. Genuine smiles, really helpful and always there. My main issue were the beds. The mattresses had this synthetic leather finish, meaning that the bed sheets were always coming off during the night. Kind of uncomfortable sleep.

Everything Dirty, no spoons, and the fridge Never gets cleaned For this price you get cheaper ones with included breakfast that are clean (but without the fancy stuff)

    They don’t rent out towels? There is no hot water, the bathroom in the main dorm is dirty. Toilet paper wasn’t replaced for 12 hours. I forgot a shirt beside the locker area for a few hours and the cleaning staff said it was nowhere to be found. The hostel was overbooked and someone was sleeping in my bed. The staff said they couldn’t give me sheets because they didn’t have the keys to the linen closet. I had to share a bed with a stanger and wasn’t given money back. Just stay somewhere else.
