It's easy to wind up in this hostel if you don't have much prior knowledge as far as lodging goes in Tulum. There are many signs leading you here once you exit the bus station - I imagine this is how everyone arrives. The property has potential, but I found it to be very dark, both inside the dorm room and in the common area. The dorm room I stayed in was right off the common area as well, which meant little privacy or quiet.
I rented a bike one day and it was of a good quality. In the morning there were tamales for breakfast which we had seen being made the previous night but the family who works (and lives?) there, and that was a nice treat. However, there is no real warmth or identity to the place, and I checked out after one night to seek lodging elsewhere.
I have stayed in other hostels where towels are lent for free and kitchens have common items like salt, oil, vinegar available for guest (who wants to constantly buy/travel with that stuff?). These things were not openly available.
There are places to hang wet clothes, but it is not really clear where you are supposed to wash clothes, if you're looking to do that.
