Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I would choose this place over a hotel any day! It is large and spacious, but nicely enclosed and cool. Tons of space to string up a hammock and enjoy the shade. Abundant washrooms and showers and public spaces. We loved our three-night stay here, met some interesting people, and found the bikes and breakfasts super convenient. There are drums and instruments and colorful artwork everywhere which all contribute to the vibrant hippie vibe of the place.

I stayed in Casa del Sol with two friends and we had a real good time. Good advices from the managers and the place is real nice. Fresh fruits and « crêpes » for breakfast, a nice roof where to smoke... the place has it all. Go Casa del Sol.

While Casa Del Sol may not be the Four Seasons, it has everything you need for a fuss free stay. The breakfast is delicious and it’s in a quiet but still central part of Tulum. What makes this Hostel special however, are the people. The receptionist in particular, is one of the nicest and most helpful and accommodating people we’ve met in Mexico. If you’re looking for top-tier luxury, look elsewhere. But if you want somewhere relaxed, affordable, unpretentious and with bikes to rent - head here.

The two words I would use to describe my stay at Casa Del Sol - disappointing and weird. We stayed for 4 nights during December of 2018. The hostel is not as advertised - what looks like a regular building is actually a semi constructed asphalt structure that is in disrepair. We stayed in an upstairs bungalow, and for the duration of the stay the Women’s bathrooms were almost always without soap or toilet paper. A “fixer upper hostel” would have been OK on its own, but staying here feels like being an unwelcome guest in someone else’s home. It seems that many locals and travellers are living there full time, including people camped in random tents on the second level. Every conversation could be heard through the paper thin walls, but no conversation could be heard over the BLASTING music and drumming that began at 7 am in the morning, and went late into the night, every single night. While the breakfast was good, the kitchen was filthy and not fit for preparing food, and we also left with hundreds of bug bites, unsure as to whether or not that is par for the course in Tulum. I have stayed at many hostels in my time and this was one of the worst. Do yourself and favour and spend your time and money somewhere else.

They mean well but it’s not a professional operation. There is stuff everywhere and some of the gas and water arrangements are downright dangerous. Something bad will happen sooner or later. I stayed in a 6 bed ensuite which had air con It was so cold I had to wear my fleece in bed as well as a blanket but they didn’t do anything to try to make things better. They had sole control of the controller. The owner said something about it was a luxury and still people complained. Well, yes they will with that attitude. The wall between the bedroom and bathroom didn’t go to the ceiling so you could hear what was going on in there and it made a disturbance during the night, especially as the door was sticky and made a noise as you had to force it open.

We stayed here for four nights and were initially taken aback at how different the hostel looked from their photos. The overall colour of the hostel is dark and brown, mainly concrete based. That being said, we had a good time here. We were really thankful to utilise the free bikes in the day and complimentary breakfast. The size of the hostel is large with plenty of room to do either social or be by yourself. The WIFI is strong in the communal too. The bathroom and showers were not exactly the best or worst. Just like this hostel, they were just 'meh'

Stayed in a private room. The concept of this hostel is so cool, wooden huts in what probably was only destined to be a multiplex car park. Eric was great in showing us around, free bike hire and a great breakfast in the morning. Would highly recommend!

I stayed 3 nights here in private room with shared bathroom. The room is spacious and the price is very affordable and it includes breakfast. They give some variety with the breakfast in different days. They also provide free bicycle use which makes it so easy to explore Tulum. I used the bike twice to explore the cenotes and to go to the beach. I really like the design of the hostel with wooden materials and nature/village look. The owner Eric and his uncle are very cool people. They're very friendly and helpful with your questions. I left my jacket at the hostel and they're kind enough to help to get it sent to me in Playa. This is definitely the place I'll stay again if I go back to Tulum. Muchas gracias!

Our private room en suite we stayed in at this hostel was very cute, and for a very good price. We loved many things about it here, including the breakfast and the chill vibes. The free bikes that we were given really made our exploration of Tulum easy. The hostel was very quiet when we stayed here and it may have been better if it was a little busier, although this is nothing they can help and it was lovely to give them trade.

This hostel was absolutely everything what I wanted. It is not a crazy party hostel but a very chilled laid back hostel. What I loved is the breakfast, the owner makes it every morning for everyone, so you wait with each other hungry at the big table. So after breakfast you will have for sure some new friends to go on adventure with. It gives you the feeling of being part of this great family and it is really clean with a great kitchen! I would not hesitate to go back here! And the free bicycles makes everything very easy!
