    I LOVED it here. We would have stayed for weeks if we didn’t have other plans. The vibe, the dorm, the staff - all amazing! Gustavo is a great guy and was so good to us. Thanks a million!

    Maybe Tulum's best-kept secret as far as budget accom is concerned! The first time I was in Tulum I stayed at this hostel but under old management. The hostel had so much potential but needed a little love. I liked it enough though to stay again this year in Tulum. TO MY SURPRISE, they are under new management and the place is lovely! Maybe Tulum's best-kept secret for travellers on a budget. Plenty of great spaces to hang out and a fantastic nightly BBQ of the cleanest-tasting tacos I've had

    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.

    The hostel is now called La Malinche. Me and my friend arrived and could check in straight away. Staff is super friendly and super helpful with everything! During our whole stay we always felt like home and all the staff was helpful 24/7! We had lots of questions about how to get around and what to do, and we got loaded with information about the area and Yucatan! The staff there is way better then 10.0!! Room and facilities are good and exactly as on the pictures. I would come again :)

    Didn't like the athomsphere at the hostel. During my stay, people (guests and staff) we drunk most of the time and it didnt make a female traveller feel comfortable. Made the place look like a little dodgy.

    The hostel has changed. Not the location stated and now it's a public bar/eatery, this is now only a very primitive kitchen. It didn't feel secure.

    It is not an 11 bed dorm room, there are just small dividers in a room of 22 people. With 1 bathroom to share. There are more bathrooms downstairs however. Also no curtains in the room so the sun wakes everybody up early in the morning. Overall it isnt a terrible place, i would just expect to pay closer to $8/night rather than $20.
