- Hostal ChalupaFirst to ReviewNov 02, 2013
I think Chalupa is the best hostel in town: a stylish and clean place with air-con only dorms, all with queen size (!) bunks beds and ensuite bathrooms. Beds were in great shape when I was there (June 2012), sheets and towels are included, as are lockers (with locks) and Wi-Fi. There's also a little pool tucked beside the open-air lounge, a rooftop solarium and a terrific vegetarian restaurant--all huge pluses. The only thing that would make this place better is if it were located on the beach. (One can dream.)Recommended for:

For ages, Tulum’s one and only hostel was the Weary Traveler, down by the bus station. The WT is still there, but it has slowly descended into mediocrity, especially the rooms, which are dark and cruddy. Thank goodness the Hostel Chalupa came along, with brighter cleaner dorms and an all-around cheerier atmosphere. There’s a pool on the ground floor and a sundeck above, both great for hanging out. The kitchen is open to guests, and is strictly vegetarian. The hostel is on the main road connecting Tulum town to Tulum beach—not the greatest location, as it’s a bit of a walk to restaurants and shops in town. Then again, you’re that much closer to the beach. The Chalupa rents bikes or you can catch the Weary Traveler beach bus, which passes by at fixed times every day (and is the last bright spot of the fallen king).
