I love this place! This was a place I always returned to during my travels in Mexico. The breakfast was always homemade and so yummy, there were always bikes to borrow (however, check them before you decide to go out on a long bike excursion) and the people running the place were so helpful!

Lobo inn hostel in Tulum is one of the place where I´d like to comeback anytime.
This place is not about shiny, luxury rooms but it has an awesome homely atmosphere.
Hostel is run by very nice family.Everybody is helpful,smiling and very,very friendly and after few days staying at this hostel I felt like part of family.
Delicious traditional mexican breakfast with coffee whole day and bikes included makes price 150 pesos as a super deal.
Location is also very good,close to spectacular tulum ruins and amazing quiet public beaches even though walking distance to downtown is cca 2km with free bikes it´s just a pice of cake...
plus swimming pool is also great.Family is constanly fixing something around so u feel safe and well take care off.
I lived in small dorm with 4 beds and bathroom everything was clean.
You don´t find crazy parties here but If you are easy going traveler who wants to chill and talk to other travelers then this is definitely place to stay.

Room Tip: rooms inside house are has better A/C compaire to Cabanas next to pool where can be sometimes very h...

Lobo is very nice german guy with a very cute family and a really nice stuff, with very good heart and sence of humor! for 150 peso, we got awesome breakfasts, free coffe all day, a very well equipped kitchen with a lot of staff we could use, swimming pool, free bike... the room we lived in was a small dorm with 4 beds and little bathroom with hot water, nice and clean!!! I think for this price i got much more than i imagined and as i said everybody is very helpful, friendly and helps whatever you need with!! We even got invited to the kids birtday party which was really nice, authentic mexican kidsparty! ...and the cake and food was insane! ...and they also have a playground for kids!!!
They continusly fixing something, taking care of the place make it nicer, better and better and i cant wait to see them next year! tha ruins are (the parking area) just the opposite side of the road, the town is 5-10 min by bike.
I think the place is really cool, nice to chill (cool music all day in the common area with free wifi) and close to everything. I recommend to everybody!!!

I stayed there at the end of february for 3 nights and I really liked it! For 150 peso per night you get a lovely breakfast, coffee the hole day, a free bike, a swimming pool and wifi. Its about 5 minutes from the town and about 10 minutes from the ruins/beach, by bike. The owners and the stuff were nice and funny. We really felt at home. Only thing I missed was a fan in the room.

This was the best hostel I stayed at throughout my trip. Cynthia, Lobo, Alex and Romario were welcoming and friendly, always available for tips and advice while managing to create a relaxed and unintrusive atmosphere. Top features include the legendary breakfasts (different every day), free bikes (regularly maintained to a good standard), perfect location for the ruins and beach (the highlight of Tulum), comfy beds, large yet intimate communal areas and a well supplied kitchen with plenty of room for storage. The supermarket or Tulum town are just a 10 minute bike ride away. The environment was friendly and sociable where all are welcome to join conversations or groups for visiting sights, excursions or nights out. Whether travelling alone or in a group, young or young-at-heart, feel like making friends or enjoying your own time this hostel suits all types and needs.

I booked two nights here recently, and ended up staying for six. The location is great for exploring the ruins, located a few minutes walk away. The hostel offers a free bike service, which is convenient for going to the beach, cenotes, and into town. The hostel is located about 5 minutes by bike from the town.

The hostel staff were really friendly and helpful. Breakfast is cooked for you each morning, and each day of the week the breakfast is different, ranging from pancakes with maple syrup, to poached eggs on muffins, to crepes with fried bananas. Each breakfast was great, and with unlimited coffee it`s a perfect start to the day.

I would highly recommend this hotel and rate it highly.
