    Sleeping in a Tube

    We would have loved our stay if the power had not gone out. Unfortunately, the power went out at just this place. They were hoping to have it fixed by 10:30pm but we were exhausted and had a big day planned and did not want to take the chance. The staff refunded us our money and we moved down the street. It sounded like this had been a problem in the past and I hope they get it fixed. Without air conditioning your are sleeping in an unventilated concrete tube. There is enough air flow from two small screened openings that you wouldn't die but if would be unpleasant. Plus there are many mosquitos so leaving the door open wasn't going to work. We had spent one night there already with no problems and were looking forward to the second. I liked the mattress and my husband and I were able to sleep together on the double bed. We are both tall - he is 6'4' and ended up sleeping toe to head. Not very romantic but it worked. Breakfast was eggs, coffee, toast and cereal in the morning. It was ready a bit later than expected but we waited. The wifi worked all over and the area is very cute with hammocks and plants. I liked the calm location that was still accessible to everything. I'm not sure if we would stay there again, but we probably just had bad luck.

    Do it if only you are stranded

    From pics this hotel looked inviting and chill with cool concept. However, rooms are horrible, shower has no water pressure, if someone flushes in the bathroom you are getting burned. Shower drain was clogged so it was not very pleasant. Kitchen was dirty. If you are not first 5 people to breakfast then make your own eggs, staff wont make any. Laundry service was overpriced, in the city it was 50% off. Rooms get so hot, AC units in the pics are just a false sense of chill. We had AC running for 10 min, turn it off for 2 hours. It makes tiny rooms really cold. We liked hammocks, palm trees in the courtyard, cheap bicycle rent on site.

    We left after only 30 minutes in our room.

    My wife and I arrived late in the evening after reading good reviews and were excited to stay at such a cute and quaint place, however we left after only 30 minutes in our room. The lady and gentleman at the front desk were very nice and the service was pleasant, but there were just too many mosquitoes and the mattress and cover were so stained and disgusting that I contemplated sleeping with cloths on. I'm not sure if there were pillows, but a red centepede crawling from behind the bed was what made us leave. The the staff was more than accommodating and offered to give us mosquito repellent fresheners and incense to accommodate us, but we were too grossed out and were already covered in mosquito bites (I had 42 at that time) to stay. If you stay here, know it's more like camping (even if you have a tube room) just because you would need to bring your own sleeping bag and pillow, and watch out for the bugs. That, and we didn't really expect the tube to be as small as it was. There's really only room for one bag under the bed. I really wish it would have worked out. Perhaps we were expecting something else, but we've never stayed in a hostel before.

    nice facilities, but way overpriced for a hostel type place (you get your own room, but it's literally just a bed in a concrete tube, bathroom and lounge are shared) Tulum has tons of hostels so check around for better prices, though if you to stay here, it will be pleasant.

    Great experience in the tubes!

    The mattress was super comfortable and the ac worked really well, making it a really great experience for one night. The staff was fantastic and fellow travellers very friendly. Breakfast was very good and the location is pretty great too. Overall a once in a lifetime experience !

    Charming short stay

    A quick solo trip to Tulum for the first time in my life. Fantastic service - the friendliest lodging staff I had ever met. I was dubious about staying in a tent, but I slept so well with the cool breeze that comes in the evening and waking up to a peaceful environment. The tents are set up with a light and a fan, as well as a fairly comfy mattress. All my needs were taken care of. My only complaint is the cleanliness of the bathrooms. This could be improved upon somewhat, which may (or may not) help to reduce the number of mosquitoes.
