“Little oasis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

I had the pleasure of staying at Calm Cabins. I was actually only meant to be briefly passing through Tulum...and in the end I stayed for over a week!
Situated off the main road but close enough to the bars, restaurants and other amenities....Calm Cabins is a great peaceful place to base yourself....with a great garden to relax and kick back in.....I had the pleasure of watching the resident woodpecker...countless lizards....iguanas.....a possum...parakeets..whilst I was staying here.
Dora the owner....is very friendly and knowledgeable of the local area having lived here for many years so make sure you pick her brains to make the most of Tulum. She can tell you about the best attractions and the most economical way to explore and experience Tulum and surrounding areas.....whether it be visiting the nearby cenotes or relaxing on the beautiful beach....you get the impression she really likes her guests to be happy.

Okay other plus points for this hostel.

Mosquito nets:).....no biggy but believe me...you will will be able to sleep a whole lot easier...there is notably more mosquitos in Tulum than other resorts...such as Playa and Cancun.

Breakfast is made fresh by Dora every morning at a reasonable time that suits you...and if you are staying more than one night then the chances are...she will mix it up a bit so your not eating the same thing every morning.

I can definately recommend this place and I really hope to visit this little oasis again.

We stayed one week at Calm Cabins Tulum. This place is just amazing, close to everything you need. Best Breakfast ever. The owner is very polite and helps you a lot. Great tropical garden. We booked the private room that is very clean and fresh. Excellent quality for the price.
Highly recommended if you are looking for a quiet and nice place to stay.

This cabins are rustic, clean and comfortable; a place to stay if you like to get out of the noise areas. You can use the kitchen, there is WIFI. Dora the owner is nice, gentle and educated; She speaks good English,Spanish and other languages too.You don;t have to worry about the cats, they keep the place safe from rodents.

small cabins in a nice garden area, the owner dora is very sweet, speaks perfect english and will cook you a variety of delicious authentic breakfasts with juice and coffee, its in central tulum close to abarrotes and bike rental places and the bus terminal. you can use the kitchen, although its a shame you cannot use it before 3pm. internet, plenty of space at least in our private room. really really good value. bring mosquito repellant!

I've been traveling for 5 month, never before been told that I can not stay and use wifi after checkout!

Rooms a full of bugs (not even a room) and although the owner was nice (until checkout) and breakfast was nice too it is defiantly not worth the money!!! For the same amount (and cheaper) you can get a lot more in other places in tulum!!

Before you go there watch the owners comments for people who wrote reviews on hostelworld something is not ok with her...

Our check out is at 11.00 A.M. These guests from Israel checked out at 17.00 Hrs. when I told them that the service they payed for was over. Yes, they left their luggage here at 10.00 A.M. went to the beach and came back at 16.00 Hrs. They not only used the WIfI, No, they also used the kitchen to cook their food, They ate outside at the garden, used the toilet and left the floor dirty. This is the main reason why we don not store luggage after check out any more. Unfortunately some guests like them take advantage and behave as they were still regular guests.

They were also whipping the kitcheen door all the time showing their very bad education. Of course I was nice until I put them a limit.
This woman got her bug bites in Bacalar (the place where they stayed before Tulum) I even recommend her a doctor, When she went to the hospital they told her it was an Allergy, Her boyfriend did n´t get any bite. We do not have bugs bed here. Our place is clean.
Yes, It would be very helpful for other travelers to read the good comments we also have in Hostel World and right here in Trip Advisor, Thank you.

This is the real Calm Cabins. Its small, relaxed, rustic, clean and comfortable.
The garden is really good with hammocks, you can use the kitchen and has good Internet.
The owner Dora is the nicest lady ever, she helps you out with everything and she is a really good host. She speaks many languages. The breakfast was very good, different everyday and she tries to accommodate you as best as possible. If you are looking for a budget calm and nice place to stay this is it! Its close to the bus station, the supermarkets and really close to here you can get a bus to the beach.

the place is run by the owner, a very nice woman , the house has a very a big garden that makes us feel in the midst of nature, the rooms look down right in front of the garden.
breakfast is very good, freshly, prepared and served by the owner.
I've had a very good time, the environment is very quiet and people are very friendly.

Room Tip: the single room in the middle of the garden, wonderful
