Chelo the owner is an amazing woman. Her breakfasts are first class. She is very informative about the hostel, the location and how to get around. She lends you bikes and snorkelling gear. We stayed here for a week, found the cycles easy into town, to the beach, even further afield to the cenotes. Our room was clean, the bathrooms...

From outside you will never except a lovely place like this. Everything is basic, but made with love. The owner Chelo and her Family care very good of you! First it seems a bit strange in fact she uses disinfection spray for your bags against Moskitos and tell you a lot of rules. But in the end everything makes sense....

We stayed at Posada los Mapaches 2 nights only but it was definitely too short! We were warmly welcomed by Chelo who made us feel like home immediatly. We had a lovely room in the trees, with a shared outside bathroom (very clean). You can enjoy the hammocks and have siestas in a Mexican way :) The location is perfect...

I wasn't in Tulum for very long simply because my plans didn't allow it. However, after staying here, I wish I could have extended my stay. I stayed in one of the tree houses (second floor) and it was clean and organized. Chelo, the owner, is sweet and hospitable. She puts a lot of heart in her work and cares...

The rooms and bathrooms were very clean. The lady who runs this hostel is very sweet and very caring. Free bikes are provided with your room and she rents out snorkels at a discounted rate. Her homemade breakfast is amazing. A great value. The hostel is by the road so passing cars can be a bit loud but overall a...

I cannot say enough good things about this beautiful oasis. From the moment you arrive Chelo and her boys make you feel like family. The grounds are very beautiful and have a treehouse/jungle feel. We chose to rent a room with a private bathroom and shower which was immaculately clean and maintained. Most of the rooms their do have a...

Very comfortable hostel with a great host away from the hustle and bustle of Tulum but still close enough to enjoy everything as and when you wish (especially with the bikes you're allocated upon checking in). Cleanliness throughout the hostel was exceptional and the included breakfast was one suitable for champions.

What a wonderful stay!! We were there for 5 nights and loved it! It is everything you need; cute cabaña, free bikes, yummy breakfast, free filtered water, snorkel rental, clean and amazing host! It has a great location that allows you to cycle easily to the ruins or beach in 10 minutes, or into Tulum town in 15 minutes. It...

We just returned 3 days ago from a wonderful stay at Posada los Mapaches. It was me, my husband and our two sons. We stayed in the private two level room with a private bath, two twin beds, and a king bed. Chelo and her sons love their home and are proud to share it with you. Every morning Chelo...
