Best breakfast in the whole of Mexico (and I've had 5 weeks worth of breakfasts)! Exceptional service, friendly people, helpful local tips & recommendations and wonderful ambience. There's a daily group activity you can participate in (if you want to) which helps break the ice and meet others (handy if you're a solo traveller craving company). Activities range from cocktail...

One of the best hostels I stayed in over 11 weeks of travelling in Central America. The staff are the friendliest I have experienced, they were so welcoming and helpful. The hostel puts on nightly activities with cheap drinks and food and the staff are great at getting everyone involved (not cliquey at all, unlike lots of other hostels) We...

We stayed for 3 nights in mid October. Staff were very welcoming and great knowledge of local area/ bike hires/ places to eat and drink. Stayed in a 6 bed dorm at the back of property- very basic but individual lockers. The room has aircon, but for our first night this did work and was dripping onto the bed directly...

Lovely place. Super friendly staff. Well equipped kitchen. Great music and vibes. Different homemade breakfast everyday. Nice outdoor area that facilitates people talking to each other. Private rooms are simple but nice, lots of space, clean and great water pressure.

I absolutely love Jose @ Mama's home. I visited in May and now am back again in October and everyday the energy, enthusiasm and positivity of this place is at an all time high. THE BREAKFAST IS AMAZING and the most common thing I hear people talk about. Everyday is delicious. There are nightly activities and if Jose doesn't have...

Mamas home was the first stop on our trip through Central Amerika. We stayed there for 4 nights an it was hard to leave. Jose and his team are great, you feel so welcomed, they take care of everybody's wishes and needs. The tips from them for things to do around Tulum were all very good. The rooms and the...
