We stayed here for 8 nights in a Diego Rivera suite (bed room, kitchen, living room) that was the nicest hostel room I have ever stayed at. We have been here already 2 times because we like the calm location (a bit far from the beach, but all the hostels in Tulum are). It has been very clean on both of the stays we have had and as a place I highly recomend it! The down side of this hostel are that the wifi only works at the reception and that the staff is extremely unfriendly and doesn't know a lot and are not willing to help u (you have to ask many times and normally the answer is just "i don't know" and they are not willing to try and help u. The only person of the staff that was nice and really knew things was the clening lady! Also the breakfast that is included is very poor (cafe, white bread, cereals and banana) and when things run out u have to try to find a staff memember and ask to get more food. All in all, if u don't want to get help from the staff stay here, if u do, you will find better places like for example the secret garden where staff is really nice and helpfull.
