Overall atmosphere was lovely - it's a beautiful property with a number of cozy common spaces to spend time in. Breakfast was simple but tasty. Friendly and helpful staff with lots of tips, was able to easily rent a bike from the hostel as well to explore Tulum (much cheaper than a taxi!)

The staff is fantastic, especially Cyhthia(front desk). She was a wealth of knowledge and you can tell she enjoys her job, especially when dealing with difficult foreigners😜. Seriously though, she made for a fantastic experience.(I’m not sure why other guests didn’t try the fruit stand outside the hostel. Cheap Tropical fruits, how can you go wrong?

the whole complex had nice and relaxing vibes to it. we loved the colourful container rooms. beds were spacious and comfortable, room and bathroom clean, windows had mosquito nets, wifi was good, there was ac in the room, there was free parking in front of the hotel. we liked the location, however if you dont have your own car it might not be the best option for you (10 min car drive to Tulum). communal kitchen with fridge. pool that we didnt use. gated hotel with security. we felt very safe there.

Tulum Bus station is 900 metres from Hostel Che Tulum, while Bus station Tulum Ruins is 2.2 km from the property. The nearest airport is Cozumel International Airport, 64 km from the property.

I went on a solo trip to Mexico for the first time and this was the first place I stayed. I had never stayed in a hostel before and was kind of nervous about the experience but it was amazing! I stayed at one other hostel during my stay and I much preferred Che. There's a very cool vibe to Che, it's extremely social but not in the forced awkward way. Everyone is super kind and the staff is pretty lax which ultimately made me feel more comfortable! The drinks and food are pretty cheap too! I spent less in Che on food and drinks than I did in one single hour near the beach. They have all you can eat food options as well, my first night was all you can eat BBQ for like 100 pesos and it was absolutely AMAZING. The rooms aren't anything special, pretty standard but clean. The vibe was immaculate though. People from other hostels all gather at Che to pregame before they go out so I met so many amazing people. A wonderful start to my vacation. I highly recommend Che!

Looking for a hostel?

Budget travelers know there's no better way to make the most of their trip than by staying at a hostel: Save money for exploring during the day, and swap stories with fellow backpackers in the shared kitchen or bar in the evening. Dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms are standard hostel fare, but private rooms are also available for those willing to pay a little more.

    Great dorms, first time solo travelling in a hostel. Felt very comfortable and safe. Felt private in the beds, nice and comfortable. Toilets and bathroom were clean. Whole building well maintained. Beautiful common rooms. Good breakfast deal, cheaper than most places. Events were plentiful and organised well to socialise and explore Tulum.

    Very nice hostel with a beautiful indoor area and pool. The dorms are spacious and the curtains in front of the beds are really comfortable. The location is also great because you can get to the center relatively quickly and walk to most things except the beach. There is a program every day, which means that as a solo traveler it's easy to meet new people :)
