Mama's Home is your home whenever you're in Tulum. Our free breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so we serve it up Caribbean style on the terrace. Afterwards, grab a cup of coffee and lie back in a hammock before heading to the beach. Feeling the heat? We have air con in every room, so just crash in the common room and stream a film on the free Wi-Fi. When the sun goes down, the surrounding streets' bars come alive, but if you’d prefer a quiet one, pick up a board game in our lounge.


Whether you’re after a vegan brunch or tasty tacos, you’ll find them at one of the bars and restaurants in our centrally located area. From Cancun International Airport, the journey to us takes around 90 minutes. Go via shared taxi or get a shuttle to Cancun then take the bus to Tulum. We're 9 minutes' walk from the Terminal de Autobuses de ADO. Explore the Mayan ruins of Parque Nacional de Tulum a 4-minute drive away. For snorkelling, spend a day at the Gran Cenote – a limestone cave – just an 8-minute cab ride. Or, go direct to the sands of Playa Pescadores, 13 minutes by car.

Rooms and Dorms

Travelling with a buddy or two? Book into a private room with its own en-suite. We also have mixed dorms with shared bathrooms, and you can hire towels at reception. Each bunk has a locker for keeping your backpack secure – but remember to bring your own padlock with you.

Extras and activities

Rent a bike from the front desk and you can be sunning yourself on the beach in 15 minutes! Pick up a book from our exchange for reading on the sand. We have free city maps to help you find your way around, too. Come back and get into the Caribbean atmosphere by cooking dinner on the BBQ or use our communal kitchen to make lunch (and save a few pesos).

    This is by far the best hostel I’ve ever been to! Gabby and Tom were the most amazing hosts and went above and beyond to provide us with the best experience, and even helped me with a bad issue I encountered after having left the hostel. I am truly thankful to have met and made such amazing friends there and to couldn’t recommend Mama’s home enough. I will definitely be coming back without a question. Also, if nothing else, Mama’s homemade breakfasts are the best!

    Mama’s Home is by far the best hostel I’ve stayed in. The breakfast every morning was probably the best part, gotta have some sustenance to start the day. The environment was in all just amazing, the staff was wonderful, the activities every night really helped the people staying at the hostel feel like family. Definitely recommend to everyone traveling to Tulum. Go MAMAS HOME!!!!!

    The best hostel I have ever stayed in. The staff are amazing! Some of the best people on the planet. ALL of them! The breakfast is fantastic. The rooms are comfortable, quiet and clean. It has a nice kitchen to cook and a great hang out area. The guests are fun to be around and the nightly events are always a blast. I extended my stay and didn't want to leave. I will definitely come back!

    What differentiates Mama's from other hostels? It's unique culture. Tom and David have ingrained a chill, inclusive, family vibe through and through - you can feel it from the artwork, to the guests, all the way to the staff who make amazing breakfasts! Stay at Mama's if you want to meet the most interesting travelers who are genuinely open to learn and share. The beds are comfy, strong A/C, and kick-ass volunteers like Gabby. What more can you ask for? Highly recommend for solo travelers!

    Mama’s Home is by far the best hostel I’ve stayed at. The reviews almost seemed to good to be true when I booked but it exceeded my expectations. I’ve stayed at so many “nicer” hostels but the people, atmosphere, and genuine sense of community are impossible to mimic. It was the first hostel I stayed at when I began my solo backpacking trip and it was because of that I was able to connect and travel with others. Of course I had to come back to stay again and when I did, it really felt like home.

    Best Hostel i have stayed at in my whole trip! Even with the current situation the Hostel planned heaps of fun activities to keep everyone busy and was especially good for a solo traveler to meet loads of great people! The staff are super friendly and helpful, great with helping book trips, giving inside knowledge or even just having a beer with. The Girls in the morning are so friendly and cook the best breakfasts, restaurant quality all included in the price. I will be back!

    I stayed for ten nights at Mommas. I have traveled the world and have stayed in many hostels. Momma's has beat them all. When I checked in the owner told me 'welcome to the family' and that was exactly my experience. The staff and volunteers are very kind and helpful. Every day we all would gather together for activities and share meals. The rooms are clean and simple (not a five star hotel of course!) and any issues are quickly resolved by the staff. I highly recommend this hostel!
