A great hostel filled with travelers from all over the world. Everybody loves hanging out in the hammock chairs and many visit the bar upstairs for the evening's entertainment. Friendly staff ensure you have what you need. You'll probably need to pay a deposit in advance to secure a reservation, but the place is often full, so always a good...

Its not often one can't really complain about anything in perticular (see my other reviews) but in this case there was no lack of facilities, knowledge from staff or activities. The last part, the activities, was a really positive plus and surprice from a hostel in a non-supercompetitive area (like europe or the states). They're doing free spanishlessons, free salsalessons,...

I had a fantastic 3 day stay at Tribu. The staff are really friendly and the communal areas are very welcoming. An extremely organised and clean kitchen made it easy to cook my own food. The beach was right around the corner and I made a ritual of watching the sun set every day. The hostel is extremely social and...

We stayed in a nearby hotel (see Puerto Holbox review) and visited bar. Brest selection and prices. Quiz Night on Tuesdays, Art Night on Wednesday. Others on other nights. Friendly bilingual staff. Asked other visitors about the hiatal and all were very impressed with staying there.

Such a cool, peaceful and friendly place to spend your time in Holbox... The dorms were comfortable (albeit a little hot in February), hot water showers, fantastic kitchen and communal deck... Can't think of a single thing they could have done to make it any cooler... Definitely deserving of the number 1 spot on Trip Advisor for Holbox.

I absolutely loved this hostel and would have to say it's one of the best staffed hostels I've been to. I had to leave early and they even refunded me my money! I hope that if you're looking at coming here just do it because holbox is heaven. Make sure to go on jam session night which is great fun!

Had to stay across the street the first night, but our little double room a Tribu was worth the wait. It had a little private balcony facing a wooded area and plenty of hot water. The bed was ok, too. We took a kayak trip into the mangrove with our guide, Jason. That evening we teamed up with Jason to...

This review is for the Tribu Bar. After a few quiet nights I stopped in at Tribu after I heard about it by word of mouth. It was a fantastic bar that has a theme each night. Dance Music, Salsa night, Trivia ect. The staff was very nice and the vibe was laid back and fun. One of the few...

This hostel is probably one of the most relaxing and fun locations I've ever had the pleasure of staying. From the hammock chairs, to the rooftop terrace views, and the amazing facilities… Tribu has it all! I'll never forget the nights I spent watching sunsets and looking at the stars on that terrace with great conversation. Meeting so many people...
