Staff are friendly and approachable. Delicious breakfast included and decent sized rooms and bathroom. Collectivo stops right across from crucero, making it easily accessible. Only a short 5 min bike ride to the beach and 15 min bike ride into town. Bikes are free too :) If you're after something more fancy, consider spending more.

My boyfriend and I stayed in a private room with air conditioning for two nights. We chose the place mostly based on the price and available parking. The room was small and not particularly nice looking but for the price I would say it was acceptable.There was good water pressure in the shower and the air con worked. Tulum was...

Hostel is reasonably priced and the free breakfast (with room) was actually pretty decent. The location is further from town than I would've liked (2-3km), and about the same distance from the ruins, so the location isn't quite ideal for either. However, the free bike rentals help alleviate this, and for some that may outweigh the location issue.

This place was soo cheap and I got far more than what I paid for. I stayed in the female dorm. It was basic but clean. No dirt on the floor and I was provided with clean sheets. They fed us a really nice omelette breakfast with fresh tropical fruit and coffee. Bikes were part of the deal and we...

Tulum is not a place with good bargain hotels. Deal with it. So I wanted a 4 sleeping room with a car park and breakfast included and within walking distance from the Tulum ruins. Picky I know... Ok so I didn't expect much and risked it. Did you see the houses where the majority of the mexicans live in while...

A difficult hotel to rate. Pros: Super friendly staff, free bikes (great to visit Tulum ruins and beaches), well located, good wifi, fantastic breakfast, some nice decoration touches, large rooms, free parking, nice garden to hang out or for breakfast. Cons: Not very clean, poorly illuminated room, no hot water, many mosquitoes (this one not their fault I suppose).

This hostal is the best option to stay at. I stayed with my Boyfriend for 3 days and those were the most magical days in Tulum. In the morning you get breakfast which could be 3 different options, there is coffee as part of the deal in the mornings as well, which is perfect for me because I love coffee....

The dorm room was the most crowded and hot hostel room that I have ever stayed in. There were four bunk beds crammed into a room that should only have two, and there was one fan that barely worked. The room was also quite dirty, and the bathroom almost never had toilet paper. The staff was generally friendly except for...
