Tulum is a quaint town just off the Caribbean coastline. The town has many cool shops, restaurants, and all of the amenities you would expect to find such as a large supermarket and several banks.
The most famous thing about Tulum are the Mayan ruins. You can take a taxi, which has a set tariff to get to places; if you are on your own, it is cheaper to take the collectivo vans that run up and down the road between Playa Del Carmen and Tulum. You can also take these collectivos to places like Akumal, to snorkel with the turtles and sting rays, or to the cenotes around the area. The most popular of the cenotes is Dos Ojos and the Gran Cenote. You can snorkel or dive both of them and there are multiple companies through the town that run tours out to the cenotes for diving and snorkeling.
El Paraiso is one of the most popular beaches within the area and it's postcard perfect. You can hire one of the many bikes from around the town to get there or take a taxi. The beach is absolutely pristine and not to be missed.
Hostels in Tulum are scattered from one end of the main strip to the other and some of them are toward the beach. Do your research on hostels in Tulum, as some are way better deals for your money than others. Some include free bicycles for the day and other offers, which will help keep your costs down during your stay in Tulum.

"Rancho Tranquilo's facilities, including colorful decor, lush landscape, and fun atmosphere are excellent. However, our experience with the staff left something to be desired. The Location The hostel is located at the southern end of Tulum, on the main street. It is easy to find, and the entrance is marked by two brightly painted surfboards beckoning you in. Rooms and Bathrooms On the first night, we rented one of the smaller...
Weary Traveler Hostel
"Weary Traveler Hostel is probably the main hub of activity for backpackers in sleepy Tulum and is a great place to meet people. It’s friendly, reasonably comfortable, and clean, so it’s a solid choice for the area. Sand seekers be warned -- it is a fairly long way from the beach. The Location Weary Traveler is in the somewhat uneventful "town" part of Tulum, about six kilometers from the beach and ruins, with a smattering of places to...
"New Management at Lobo Inn - Lobo and Cynthia (the owners) have taken over management of this property in 2013. They have spruced up the place quite a bit, and have kept the place from getting overcrowded which had been a problem in the past. The free breakfasts are good and are served between 8 and 10am. They provide free bikes to ride, but at the time I was there the supply was limited, so sometimes in the afternoon there were no bikes...
Mayan Hostel Tulum
"Fantastic - In a good location, close to town for shopping and services (about ten minutes' walk). On the main drag to the beach. We walked to the beach each day it takes about forty-five minutes to get there but we need the exercise after the great free breakfasts which are out each morning. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The facilities are great such as the kitchen, free internet, and indoor and outdoor seating areas. Very clean...
Casa Del Sol Mexico
"Casa Del Sol Mexico has a really cool look to it and a really social vibe, but discomfort with the rooms and the beds is a big letdown. The Location The hostel is at the far end of the village of Tulum from the roads to the ruins and the main beach. The cost of a taxi or collectivo to these locations is the same from anywhere in the Central District. Rooms and Bathrooms There are three dorms here and they smell like mould and...

"Overall very happy - We stayed for 3 nights at Hostel Chalupa; the staff were exceptionally helpful and informative. The only suggestion I have is that we were missing a sheet on the bed. We had a sheet to sleep on as an under sheet but no top sheet, but as there were no spares one night and the washing did not come back from the launderette the other night we had to fold the sheet over and sleep on it. Apart from the suggestion about another...
"Mama's Home is a small hostel close to everything. Its size and the friendliness of the staff create a personal and welcoming environment that would make Mama proud. The Location Two blocks away from the main strip, Mama's Place is well located and only a short stroll from a wide array of bars, restaurants, souvenir shops, and scuba schools. There is an excellent and cheap bakery next door and a small convenience store on the corner....
"Find somewhere else - When we arrived our booking had been ignored and so our room was taken. The staff were not apologetic and vaguely offered to help us find somewhere else. In the end we just settled for the dorm room. Mistake! pros -- Mmm tough one ... Can't think of any. cons -- unhelpful staff, no sheets on the beds, poorly ventilated and very hot rooms. in summary, I'd find somewhere else, there must be better places around." …...
Casa Del Sol
"For two nights most - Location was good and it was nice and clean. But the noise! if you want to book night for sleeping do not come here. It was like sleeping in a nightclub. And wi-fi doesn't work in rooms." … "Good price and good location - We were there on Christmas and it was full so I guess some of these problems don't happen too often. The cleanliness was average in the kitchen and in the bathrooms. There's only four bathrooms...
El Jardin de Frida
"Clean, friendly, and fabulous tacos!!! - I cannot say enough about El Jardin de Frida! I stayed 2 nights last week (october 2011) and had a great time. The proprietor is friendly, speaks perfect english if you need, and takes incredibly good care of his guests. The dorms are standard issue as far as hostels go, but they were clean, neat and spacious. The 2 best things about this place are how quirky the garden is (very eclectic and offbeat)...
