This place needs an extreme cleaning. The pool water was blurry and green. The bathrooms and the dorm had a nasty smell to them and worst of all there were bed bugs. Because of the bed bugs we left in the middle of the night, the owner did give us our money back but we didnt even get an apology.

Excellent place to stay. The hostel is owned by a lovely couple that are very kind and helpful all the time. The hostel is very nice and along with the facilities is a very good place to stay. The location is great because it's literally infront of the Tulum ruins. If you want to go downtown they have complimentary bycicles.... More

This place already has a lot to offer. The staff are very welcoming and laid back. When we arrived at 5am, they let us into our room straight away to have a nap. We paid 180peso for a dorm room, similar to in town prices with a few more facilities on offer. The have a great free breakfast. Sweet one... More

I spend three nights at this little gem. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but once you come in, it's like a new home. The owners are the sweetest couple, warm and inviting, and willing to help with anything. Nice pool, big, airy and very clean dorms with bathrooms and AC, and a well organized kitchen with everything... More

Lobo was a nice hostel, with good location and free bikes, close to walk to the beach and town is close enough to cycle, unlike hostels in town not necessary to take a bus in either direction. The breakfast was good, wi fi was good. We did not get any towels.

I just finished my stay at Lobo Inn and I can't recommend a stay here enough! We heard rumours about how amazing the breakfasts here are and so booked 3 nights. The breakfasts did not disappoint! From banana pancakes to blueberry bagels with some kind of sweet spread and papaya conserve; they trumped any breakfast I've had at a hostel... More

I would not suggest that anyone stay here. I stayed with friends last month. The hostel is right on the highway and somewhat isolated. It is really not too close to the beach. If you ride a bike, the beach is 15 minutes away, and if you walk, more than half an hour away, and somewhat difficult to find. The... More
