A terrible experience, we arrived late in the evening and found bed bugs and dirty bedding broken shower. After half an hour we asked to leave and refused to give us the money back. Really really not recommended הגענו מאוחר ומצאנו פשפשים במיטה, סדינים מלוכלכים ומקלחת שבורה. אחרי חצי שעה ביקשנו לעזוב ולא הסכימו לתת לנו את הכסף חזרה. מלון...

was family run in 2013. Excellent location and hospitality. Small amount of rooms for families and backpackers dorms. Nice place to meet people from Cancun and all over world. Best beaches are a 20 minute bus ride from hostel. 3 blocks walk from ADO bus station. Best local restraints and shops across street. Pool and garden nice.

I had a good time at that hostel. It is a bit far from the beach, but it is easy to get there by taking the bus. The hostel was clean and it was at a great price. There was a cool area beside the pool where we could hang out with other people that were staying at the hostel....

En route to Merida, I landed in Hostel el Meson de Tulum for four nights. Under new management, I found the young man to be enthusiastic with excellent ideas for the hostel: his ballyhoo, the owners. I enjoyed my stay. Swam in the pool, but it does need maintenance. I loved my dorm room. Beds are comfortable with a private...

The photos are misleading. Pool was empty and WIFI didn't work. Apparently the WIFI issue had been going on for weeks and they still advertised 'free WIFI' in Hostelbookers. Poorly stocked kitchen and every time you put a pan on the electric hot plate you get electric shocks. Good enough for one night but don't expect it to be what...

There was no water in the pool, the female dorm was smelly and actually full of boys sleeping there. No hot water in the shower. The breakfast was bad organised in a dirty kitchen . Overall a scruffy place, wouldn't stay here again.

Good location in downtown with good bus routes just outside, really close to the bus station for travelling further away (Playa/Tulum/Chichen). All staff very friendly and helpful. We stayed in one of the hotel rooms which was really big, it fitted 2 double beds, private bathroom, free aircon and fridge which was very good touch, and free wifi which suited...
