It was okay. I’ve stayed here before and it was much better last time. There were a few travelers working to live there and it had a pretty chill and homey vibe. It felt like a hostel There is a full blown staff with security now. This is a hotel, not a hostel at this point. The drinks are all US prices, you are not allowed to bring a beverage in with you. Security will make you drink it on the steps or pour it out even though you have a private room. I would have rather stayed in a real hostel than deal with the odd rules this place had. You want to get super fckd up and spend a bunch of money, have the music so loud you can’t talk to the person next to you until late hours? No problem. You want to bring a beer from the restaurant below or that you got from the store next door in with you to your private room? ABSOLUTELY not. It’s an okay place to stay if you’re 22 and trying to rage in Tulum. Otherwise find a cheaper hostel, or just book a hotel for the price. OH and my partner ended up with a super weird rash that got diagnosed as pool folliculitis back home from their murkey, dirty pool.

The property is well over hyped by the photos on the website. There are 4 floors of rooms and dorms, yet only on the ground floor is fresh drinking water (which must be used also for brushing teeth) available, this water is in a large jug which should be set on a water cooler or other dispenser but it’s not. To fill water bottles or cups you must lift and pour the incredibly heavy jug. The “kitchen” facilities are beyond the pail, a very small room with just two electric cooker rings and two small refrigerators are meant to be adequate for hundreds of guests. No personal alcohol can be consumed in the lounge area or stored in the refrigerators, it will be thrown out by staff, so be prepared to pay bar prices or take warm drinks to the beach. The free breakfast is a choice of toast and/ or fruit with yogurt, other options are available for purchase. Upside? It’s a 15 minute walk to the center of town, and a short cycle to the beach with a bike you can rent the on site. I stayed in a 12 bed all female dorm and the bunks were private and the room was well equipped with showers and toilets which were kept clean and for the price of about $20 a night USD that’s pretty good. The vibe of the place is geared towards people who think they are between 18- 24 which includes older guys who stay there to flirt with the young clientele. But it is what it is, a cheap room in an okay location.

The room we were in was 201. The room was extremely noisy. The bar music was played until 1 or 2 am every night and you could hear absolutely everything. The bass from the speakers actually shook the bed. We requested to be moved to a different room several times. The stats only answer was that they were all booked up and couldn’t do anything. We were also told that extra towels were extra money and the hotel actually required me to leave a deposit if I wanted to keep my drivers license. The staff was extremely unfriendly and unhelpful. For almost $200 a night we expected a lot more out of our experience. We actually checked out early due to how unhappy with the hotel and it’s staff we were. The room was relatively clean. That is the only plus I can think of.

My husband dropped his wallet and it was picked up by the yoga teacher and supposedly taken to the reception, when we went to ask everyone at reception (6 people total) states the wallet was not there. The security and a receptionist called the yoga teacher a few times to ask where the wallet was placed and she never answered the phone. Then the hotel manager offered us to wait in her office while they “looked for it” 5 minutes later after she offered an apology, the security guard walks in with my husband’s wallet. The wallet was looked through, nothing was missing but the fact that they searched the wallet, nothing was in its place, tells you the intentions they had. Horrible customer service! Nights Before this incident we went to the bar for drinks, ordered our drinks and literally 10 minutes later after watching the bar tender prepare drinks for 3 other people, we asked for ours and the bar tender said they’d forgotten to make them, at this point we cancelled the drinks and went to the room. HORRIBLE, unprofessional, dishonest. Do not book here! You will regret. They don’t even have elevators, so plan on pulling your luggage up a flight of stairs.
