    Great atmosphere. Incredible staff. I travelled alone and was nervous at first but the staff were so welcoming and friendly. I left and returned with two more friends. Highly recommend this hostel. Hugo is an excellent bartender and Jesus is a great amigo! These guys will take care of you with great hospitality. I will definitely return to this hostel for drinks and accommodation.

    The staff here are very fun and friendly. Being only 2 blocks from the Main Street it is in a great location a couple minutes away from the busy part of town. The only negative during my stay was that construction workers were building some additional wooden structures and they started making noise before I got up. Once these are built, the courtyard is going to be even better to hang out in. *See if there will be a mezcal tasting on the rooftop while you are there. Totally worth it

    Very Good

    29 Jan 2021
    It was a good hostel and the other guests were very nice but it was weird that guests couldn’t use the kitchen. This was never explained to me and I went up on the roof one morning with a loaf of bread and one volunteer asked if I wanted to use the toaster. So I assumed, like all other hostels, I could use the kitchen. I went back another day to eat and a different volunteer in the kitchen just looks at me and bluntly goes “you can’t be in here.” They were pretty accommodating besides that.

    Very Good

    31 Mar 2021
    Staff was very friendly. Location is good. The bunk I had was a safety hazard. I sliced my foot open on the rusty sharp edges. The dorm mates I had were sloppy, left dirty clothes and junk all over the floor. Very hot in the room even when they run the A/C.

    A basic hostel in a good location in downtown Tulum. Chill atmosphere, which is sometimes ruined by really loud, bad techno music.

    This hostel was aight. Some of volunteers working were nice and some seemed to not be enjoying it. They have a small kitchen for the staff only to cook, but why not for the guests? For the price which I understand is tulum they should allow the use of the kitchen. They claim there is hot water and I didn't have a hot shower the whole time. All in all it was an ok hostile but they could use some improvements for sure.

    Would not recommend this Hostel! The room was very dirty. I would be surprised to hear that the bathroom was cleaned before we got there, and it definitely wasnt cleaned while we were there. The shower, toilet and sink were all gross. The whole room felt dirty. AND WORST OF ALL Most of the time we were there there was no running water. So no shower but also none of the toilets worked. It was VERY gross. And the staff (all volunteers), although very friendly, offered no help or solutions.

    I was really disappointed with my stay at this hostel. On arrival we had a very frosty reception... no smile and greeting from the lady at the desk. We then found out that guests could not use to kitchen it was only for volunteers, there was no access to drinking water as that was in the kitchen. The air con in the rooms is controlled by the staff and turned on & off with a set temperature. Very loud music then starts playing right outside at 8am. The majority of the volunteers were unfriendly
