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.
