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.

"If you are looking for a cheap and basic accommodation and would also like a sweet breakfast included and a great location close to the Mayan ruins, you should consider Lobo Inn in Tulum. The Location Lobo Inn is located outside Tulum and very close to the famous Mayan ruins. The town itself is around three kilometers away and can be reached easily with the free bikes of the hostel (the same goes for the beach). The beach is next to...
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....
"Fantastic atmosphere - I stayed a few nights at this hostel in one of the dorm rooms. I liked the circular hut layout of the dorms; they were spacious and not too crammed together like some hostels i have visited. I loved the house pets there. And Charlie the owner was very sweet welcoming and helpful, as were all the other employees. My one complaint that kept this from a five star would be that the room was a bit musty. But it was explained...
Casa Del Sol
"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 for everyone in the hostel so you may have to queue for the shower. The breakfast starts only at 8h30 (or more) and again you have to wait your turn to eat so it's not very practical if you want to leave early. The staff...
El Jardin de Frida
"Calm, comfortable hostel. - I liked this hostel because I meet so many nice people here. The workers here are all nice and have helped me with every thing I asked of them. They have a lot of patience and are very kind.

It has a social vibe, and a big common area with several hammocks, great for chilling out after spending a day walking around the ruins with a thousand other tourists.

Hostal Tulum Naa
"Hostal Tulum Naa is a basic but fully functional and budget hostel in Tulum.

Mango Tulum Hotel
"Amazing place! - This is the best hostal i've ever stayed at. Nice owner, great and helpful staff, beautiful garden, nice pool. 4-bed dorm was clean and comfy. I was here at low season (early october), so the town was relatively quiet. Hostal was fully booked though. Spent some nice evenings in the pool, chatting. No party hostel, but fun and relaxed crowd. Would recommend it to anyone!" … "… has a large garden area with...
"What a great stay! - I booked this for the novelty of getting to stay in a tube, but was pleasantly surprised by how nice it was. Each tube has its own A/C unit and power outlets. The screen door and windows had curtains for privacy, but since they were of light material, the breeze and sunlight were still able to get in. Very much a plus in my book. The open breakfast included eggs, toast, cereal, orange juice, and coffee -- again very nice....
"Good location but poor accommodation - The location is really good -- it's very close to the tulum ruins and to the beaches. In the price of the night you can borrow a bike for free, which is the greatest and only advantage of this hostel. We biked to beach, ruins, and to grand cenote and using bike in tulum is really handy! I didn't like the hostel appearance, the rooms are dirty and old. The hostel is on public area without any fences, so...

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...
