Description

The Hostelz.com Review

Hostel Che Babel is an average hostel that is very party-oriented. It's located in central Tulum and has decent common spaces. The rooms are quite dusty and the party atmosphere can feel a bit forced. It has good common spaces and a central bar that is a good focal point of the hostel.

The Location

The hostel is a five- to ten-minute walk from Tulum's main bus terminal and is a couple of roads back from Tulum's main street. It is very centrally located and you have easy access to the bars and restaurants in Tulum. The hostel is easy to find from the main street and you can see the bikes they have for rent outside. The road on which the hostel is located is not noisy and feels safe.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Hostel Che Babel has lots of different room options available, including dorms. The dorm rooms only have two plug sockets, which means you cannot always charge your belongings. The beds are not particularly comfortable and there is a lot of dust in the room, which also feels a bit dingy. There are lockers in the room for guests to use.

The bathrooms are off the dorm rooms and are quite small and cramped. The bathrooms have a shower that doesn't have very strong water pressure and there are no hooks to hang clothing. The bathroom is relatively clean, and in a large dorm room there can be a bit of wait to use it.

Common Spaces

The common spaces are varied and social in the hostel. Its open plan layout on the ground floor means it's easy to socialise and meet new people. There is a small pool, though not many people use it. The bar has seating along it and is also where breakfast is served in the morning. The hostel promotes a party atmosphere, and it can feel a bit forced as you are heavily encouraged to drink. If you are looking for an intense party hostel, then this could be for you.

The hostel also has bikes for rent and a list of tours you can book through the hostel.

Summary

Hostel Che Babel can feel a bit grungy in atmosphere and cleanliness. It has an intense party vibe and great amenities on the ground floor.
