tobydixon Moma's Home is the best kept secret in Tulum. The staff is genuinely friendly and very helpful. Fanny is a great Manager and the tour guide Estaban will take you to the coolest places in Tulum for the best price. Everyone at Mama's Home make my trip that much better. If you can stay in the top first toom (it's the best) the other rooms are ok but for the money it's still can't be beat-toby

macvdb It's a nice place, very clean and well kept, with lovely staff who will help you with anything you may need... It is just across a huge supermarket which is pretty handy, and there are some restaurants and a coffee shop close by. From the ADO bus station it is a really simple walk which takes about 15/20 minutes. To the beach it's about an hours walk though, but you can rent bikes closeby for about 80 pesos/day or get a cab (to the beach) for 70. Cold and hot purified water is available and you can even make yourself some tea or coffee. The shower is pretty good and the beds pretty comfortable. All in all a nice and relaxing place to stay :)

marf28 I really felt at home here, breakfast was a treat to wake up too and having a bike made it super easy getting to the beach, town, and some near by Cenotes. The only problem I found was it is pretty loud because you right on the highway but ear plugs came in very handy and after that I had no issues. The family is really wonderful and helpful in pointing out near by attractions and I would not hesitate staying there again.

eliska.chl I've stayed with my boyfriend in this hotel in March 2011 for 10 nights. The hotel is located in the centre of really nice town Tulum and it's only five minutes from main bus station. Hotel has beatiful garden and its own restaurant with bar where you get tasteful food and drink from breakfast to dinner. And the hotel has his own bakery! Like a speciality you must also try drink with tequilla called "mayan sacrifice". Rooms are quite big with good equipment - air conditioning, TV, king size bed, bathroom...distance to the beach is about 5km (but you can go by taxi or by bike). The staff of hotel is really nice! Everybody is very friendly even if you don't speak spanish. They are really good friends! And there are very cute cats. I recommend this hotel to everybody!!!

Migueq Great place to stay. We Just stay for 1 night an everything was perfect. The Hostal had just opened one month before, so everything looked really new. We reserved a share room but when we get there the room was just for us, so even better! The location is ok, 2 blocks away from an important avenue where you can buy everything you need. The only thing to take into account if you are travelling in these days is that the hostal doesn't has the name in the front, so you have to guess to get there. And 'cause they opened just one month ago, people in the surroundings didn't know where was located. Just to take into account, the hostal has all the front wall painted in red.

maciberkeley Super nice staff and owner! Basic facilities but clean and hot water. Amazing breakfast with products from organic market garden. Best hostel experience ever.
idpv I got into Tulum from Belize on the bus at 3AM and there was someone at the desk to let me in and aim me at a bed! Bus lag is worse then jet lag! The place was OK clean and pretty friendly, close to bank, bakery, good restaurants, and a fine vegetable market! I did some of my own cooking and washing, and occasionally splurged on dinner out. The breakfast/ bar system works well, and it's nice to get a free daily bus ticket to the beach. ! THey could use a better strainer on the dish sink so you can remove the usual food sludge from the drain, and some backpackers still need to learn how to wash their dishes! Not much has changed from 30 years ago! I'll probably stay here again.

stacey.fac The bikes can´t be beat. If you´re looking for the pool, hot water, salsa lessons or sunday night party, forget it. If you just want a place to stay and some friendly people to chat with and excellent proximity to the ruins and the beach, this is your place. 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.
Stephanwithana The pros: beautiful surroundings, friendly people, eco oriented. The cons: granted it is camping and priority is natural surroundings, it could stand to be cleaner and better organize. Tents were stacked pretty tight. A great time had regardless.

mich.clan I am currently working outside Tulum and come into Tulum on weekends. I have tried a number of different hostels over the past few weeks, and walking into my room at Hostel Marcopolo Dive Tulum was like finding a little bit of paradise! I was staying in a private room, wtih bathroom en suite. The room is beautiful, very clean, spacious, the bed comfortable, the bathroom immaculate, the hot water shower works. The walled treed gardens give a cool breezy place to sit and just relax. As a small hostel it is also not noisy and loud, though there was a friendly group of travellers staying. There is free wifi across the property, although it was a bit intermittent in my room (but no more so than any of the other hostels i have stayed in). The hostel was marginally more expensive than the other places where i have stayed in a private room, but of so much better quality, that the 20 or so extra pesos that i payed for the room were more than worth it! The location of the hostel is excellent. Located in central Tulum it is set two blocks off the main road, so is quieter than other places that are located on the main strip, but is within easy walking distance of everything you need. The staff and owners are very friendly and helpful. A plus is also that that the hostel is working at recycling glass, plastic etc. ... something that isn´t common in the hostels in the area. My only criticisms are that there is nowhere to cook, but there are laundry facilities and fridge and washing up facilities. If you are looking for a quiet beautiful place to stay, located in central Tulum, offering good value - this is the spot. I would definitely recommend it.
