I had heard a lot of 'good things' about this place, and I really wanted to like it.
Upon walking in and saying hello, the front desk person, a young mexican girl, seemed to feel like she was doing me a huge favor by acknowledging my presence, and she seemed either tired or stoned and either way she was completely apathetic.
I asked to see the room for myself and my friends, on the way to the room there were about 30 young folks partying it up right outside the room she was showing me, which I acutually wouldnt mind too much as I am also young and like to party although i would have preferred that it wouldnt be so close to the room.
The room smelled horrible and stuffy. The beds seemed worn out and the sheets were barely on the beds. Im writing this review because I believe that it will save some other people as sensitive as I the time and energy it took me to check this place out. Best of luck.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Weary Traveler Hostel Tulum was started by backpackers for backpackers back in the year 2000. The hostel was built around what they themselves wanted to find in a good hostel when they were traveling. A good social vibe A book exchange A bar with backpacker prices Communal Kitchen (loaded with free spices, salt, pepper) Full Cook Your Own Breakfast Free Rice, Pasta and lentils for dinner Good Advice on Tours and Activities Some aspects of the Weary Traveler Hostel Tulum appear to be unique but they are not. Many of them came from other hostels where we had stayed long before we dreamed of opening a hostel in Tulum. For example the Burn Your Own BBQ was inspired by the Bondi Beach Hotel's incredible steak barbi setup inside the bar. Huge, beautiful cuts of beef were in a display fridge that was part of the bar. You would say, "Yeah, give me that one!" and huge chunk of raw red meat came at you on a platter. It was your job to cook it how you wanted it. The Weary Traveler Hostel Tulum has changed, evolved, gone back to our roots and changed again and again over the years. We have always tried to evolve as a hostel, stay ahead of the competition and anticipated the changing needs and desires of our guests. So welcome to The Weary Traveler Hostel Tulum, mi casa es su casa! John, one of the originals from way back when. ... more less
