IF you tak the collective from Cancun or Playa del Carmen make sure you tell them you´re going there before you hit Tulum. It´s about 2 km north of the main city center.
oh and the breakfast is phenomenal for a hostel. home cooked and different every day. plus wifi and internet.

We booked by Travellerspoint so we wouldn't be wandering under packs looking for a home when we arrived. Our first shock was that the hostel, although near the ruins, was several kilometres (40 peso by taxi) from the town's restaurants. If offers free internet and bicycles but just try to get a go at either. Free breakfast comes at 9.00, after most tours you may be on have left.
Our private room was squalid, the sink a converted cooking-wok that barely trickled, the shower-head a disfunctional conch shell. I'm not sure of the brand of the air conditioner but suspect it was a Legionnaires. The toilet had no seat and when we mentioned it to the receptionist, he looked at us as if to say think yourself lucky you have the toilet.
We are on the elderly side of the back-packing set and this place just about cured us of the practice. There were plenty of young packers there though so maybe they found something we didn't. They must be easily pleased though.
