This is one of the best hostels I've ever been, The infraestructure (each detail of the decoration!), the staff, the ambient, bar,kitchen, everything was totally lovely. I really recommend this place. It has a great mix between the peace of the Island and the good vibes and fun of the Hostel. The only thing they need to change, in my...

Stayed here for 4 and didn't want to leave. Stayed in the six bed dorm. Great location near the beach, clean facilities, friendly staff and fun daily activities. Holbox is a great place to chill out and Tribu definitely makes it possible.

Tribu is well located near the beach and town plaza. It also has a nice design and lively social activities. It's a party hostel but in a good way, in that the dorms are far enough away from the bar that you can get some sleep. The staff is helpful and friendly and the kitchen is probably the best of...

The hostel is a great place to stay if you want to really relax on Holbox. I went there for two nights and ended up staying six because it was so nice. It's just a short walk to the beach, or to go to the shops/bars/restaurants in the town. The rooms are very clean and well-equipped - each room (dorm...

I spent a week at Tribu on my second visit to Holbox. I started most mornings with yoga on the roof deck. from there, I went to Spanish class with la Professora Extraordinaire Juliana. Many of the staff supported my emergent Spanish with patience and encouragement. Afternoon and evening activities kept me very busy, although there was time enough for...

This hostel, located in paradise, offers outstanding customer service, terrific amenities, clean facilities and all at a bargain price! I can’t say enough about the quality of customer service at Tribu; the owners and the staff rock! The location is not on the beach, but an easy block away. They offer fantastic tours which were convenient, affordable and awesome! Not...

We slept in a 6 mixed dorm Good beds, showers and vibe.  From the port it is a 15-20 min walk. Or take a golfcar as taxi. Don't forget to get your deposit back if you have an early checkout! The day before, we were talking to the reception to arrange a taxi and ask where we should leave the...
