Was told it's the best hostel in Central America, It was great for its location and staff are nice. We stayed in a dorm room on the second floor, pretty good with its own toilet and basin. Shower was right outside our door. Own balcony which was handy! Not the most comfortable beds but oh well. We had two ceiling...

Hello Natasha! Thanks for staying in Tribu and thanks for your review! :) This year it’s been a really difficult year, not only for our hostel but for the entire island in terms of water, electricity supply and internet. The internet connections was not bad, it was awful the entire summer. Holbox is a tiny island that just started to...

We were really excited to come and stay here as the previous reviews were great. However upon arrival it was not what we expected. The staff were lovely and do not blame them for any of our bad experiences. Travelling as a couple and sleeping in the private room next to the common area, the night we arrive there was...

We stayed here a couple of weeks ago, our room was nice with good AC and a little balcony, staff were really helpful and friendly and the facilities were great such as the bar, the rooftop and the numerous places to chill out. The kitchen was fully equipped and had lots of hobs to cook on but maybe a little...

One of the best desighned hostels I stayed in. An amazing roof with a beautiful ocean view, great for yoga and stargazing. The bar is lively and has regular and changing events and parties. Well equiped kitchen. Dorms with good air-con, in-door toilet, shower is outside. A perfect place to base yourself and enjoy the magical Holbox beaches.

Spent 4 nights in the girls dorm. Very clean and quiet even when there is music at the bar. Kitchen is very well equipped with an oven and even a cake mold. Dining area is a bit cramped though and generally I felt the histel lacked sitting space. Staff is welcoming and helpful. Had a great yoga course on the...

Tribu is a great lodging destination for couples, solo travelers and backpackers who want to get away. This hostel is perfectly synchronized with vibes that the Island of Holbox radiates. The design is unique, interesting and very inviting with its wooded structure and communal areas. The reservationists at the front desk are warm, accommodating and are happy to offer their...

I spent three nights at Tribu with my daughter, who's eight. We both loved how cheerful and colorful the place was, furnished with great taste and humor, clean, and how helpful the staff was. We stayed in a private room with private bathroom, which was small but magically managed not to overheat with a super hot weather. The only problem...

I enjoyed this hostels set up. The kitchen is huge, dining area is on a beautiful patio, and lots of chill space. The bar always has something going on, although it could open earlier in the day... The staff are friendly and the beach is less than 5 mins walk away!
