There's nothing particularly good or bad about this place, it just kind of coasts into the 'ok' category. Good points: the room was spacious, had 2 double beds and the pressure of the shower was good. Bad points: the water supply to the taps and toilet didn't work at all for a couple of hours every morning, the pool was...

Good hostel and a really fair price. Basic breakfast included but more than enough. Really big double beds to yourself in the dorm rooms. Javi, the manager is really friendly and gives great advice on where to hire bikes, get your washing done, eat some local food and more. Great backpacker hostel atmosphere in a great location.

The place was really clean, staff made sure to leave everything spotless if the guests didn't. We stayed in a room for two with a private bathroom and although it was pretty dark, you can't expect too much from a $30 room in Tulum, as it was $15 each and that's just a bit more than you'd pay for a...

Relation quality-cost is perfect. The hostel had everithing you need for sleep and pass the time. In adittion have a terrace where you can read or simply know people. Also, it's located in a perfect point between the beach and town.

The place was clean with a vegetarian kitchen (though I didnn't really use it) and an open plan setting. The beds were great! Double beds, top and bottom bunk, if not a stand alone bed. I have to admit the mattresses were great! Every room has lockers, and you receive a key for your room. You don't receive a sheet...

Staying here was perfect. It was for a great price and the rooms and hostal were nice and clean. They have a nice, well sized pool. The atmosphere is very chill and the staff was accommodating and friendly especially Javier. The location is great, its right at the start of town and also on the main road to the beach....

Two weeks into a round the world trip, this is the best cheapie hostel I've stayed in so far. It was quiet but still able to meet people easily, sensible amount of beds in each room, and nice atmosphere, breakfast, location, comfy large beds. Comparison point is hostel Che which is round the corner that I stayed in for two...

Rather clean, staff has a weird and very odd vibe. Great location and nice pool, that's about it! It sucks that it only allows "vegetarian" cooking only, if you are in a budget that pushes you to go out and have a snack or dinner if you are not vegetarian therefore spend more money! Why it's so difficult to have...

If you just need a cheap spot to crash, this will do. But don't expect much more than that. The room is, how do I say this nicely, just not that nice, but the sheets are clean and the room is cleaned every day (we stayed in a private room). We stayed a few days during the low season and...

Stayed here before heading down south, and honestly it set the bar too high for any other hostel in Belize or Guatemala to match up to (in terms of ammenities). I truly realized how spoiled I had been after my stay, but having a pool inside, air conditioning, and double beds was seriously so so nice. Riding the bike to...

“The 5 bed room is a great size”

“Rooms downstairs away from Bar maybe quieter?”

“The upstairs room is very loud with bar music playing loud until late hours, would be quieter in downstairs rooms.”

“Don't rent a bike from next door like they recommend. I'm pretty sure you get overcharged. I heard there is somewhere cheaper further down the road. Use the beach by the ruins, it's nicer than what you can get to in the hotel district.”
