Stayed here for 3 nights and did not want to leave. Hostel is 2 minutes away from the beach, and is exceptionally clean. Hot water always available and great communal area/bar which makes it easy to chat to others. Staff were very friendly and helpful! Highly recommend the kayak tour led by Jason. He's very passionate about nature and loves...

The bar was closed for renovations during my stay but that just means the Hostel is making improvements. Apparently they do this once a year in low season. Very accommodating and friendly staff and enjoyed the hammock chairs in the lounge area. Would come back.

This hostel is an awesome tree-house style backpackers heaven. The kitchen has everything you need and there is a nice spot to eat and hang out, overlooking the rest of the hostel. It has a great location, two minutes away from the beach and a stones throw away from shops on Holbox. The staff are organizing events regularly and we...

This island is beautiful. Tribu is a lovely hostel, the private rooms are great and well worth the price. Kitchen was clean and tidy always with free water. The hostel is beautiful. I can definitely understand why this is recommended in the Guardian. One of the best hostels we stayed in our 5 month trip of central and South America.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Tribu for 5 nights and loved it. It was busy and loud at times, but we didn’t mind. Most of the other travelers were in our age group, so it was nice to get to know them a bit. We booked our whale shark tour through the hostel and it was perfect – there...

The rooms and showers were substantial, but we were there for 2 nights and the bar was closed both nights due to understaffing. We were attracted by the 'cinema' advertised online, but when we went to watch a film we discovered that this has been converted into another dorm. They relied heavily on volunteers staying there without proper management. A...

My boyfriend and I stayed for 2 nights in a dorm with AC. Very clean and well kept bathrooms and showers. Amazing location, a block from the beach and a 10min walk from the harbour. The kitchen was well equipped, good knives. Beautiful hostel, super colourful hammocks and chill out areas everywhere. Sweet bar with lit candles at night. Very...

A great hostel, staff were so friendly and offered lots of information on places to eat and bars as well as good beaches. Their map was amazing, one of the best hostels I have been to. The Wifi is good in the hammock area and they have daily activities or tours. Just remember to get your water out the fridge...

Been traveling for two weeks and this was the best hostel we've stayed yet. The receptionist are very nice and helpful. The facilities are awesome with great decoration and attention to detail. Right next to the beach and a bar and activities to socialize. Thanks!!!
