Traveling as a party of 3 we had a nice time at the Weary Traveler Hostel. We stayed 4 nights and thought that this was an adequate length of time. We had a private room which included a bunk bed with a double bed below and single bed above. The room had air-conditioning, a fan and a private bathroom with...

I was a bit apprehensive about staying here due to some of the reviews but it turned out to be excellent. There are two buildings, we stayed in the second building which is a two minute walk away. The room had air con, ensure and was close on the Main Street so close to everything. The free breakfast is great,...

We stayed in this hostel for 3 nights. We wanted to leave earlier because we changed our travel plans but they wouldn't refund the last night so we ended up staying there the full 3 reserved nights. So be aware of you reserved here, you can't cancel one of the nights and get a refund. The hostel is undergoing a...

Stayed at The Weary Traveler as a group of 3 for 4 nights. Couldn't recommend it more; very sociable, great breakfast, rooms are clean and have air con, staff are helpful and friendly and the free Caiparinha hour is an excellent opportunity to meet fellow travellers and people on holiday.

Convenient, friendly and comfortable. The breakfast in this place is fantastic. Pancakes, omelettes etc all included in the price. Also a cheap bike hire place on site. When I was there there was a problem with the bar licence so the bar was not open. For me this was a blessing in disguise because it meant the hostel was quiet...

I stayed at the weary traveler for two nights. I had spent my first night in Tulum at a hotel on the beach, but it gets so windy after 4-5pm that it wasn't worth it. The vibe at TWT was friendly and relaxed. People hung out during the great free breakfast (omelets, pancakes, cereal, toast, coffee) happy hour, and dinner....

Stopped for a night in Tulum, traveling from Puerto Morelos to Bacalar, and found this great place. We left for a dinner, slept well and had a terrific breakfast. The vibe seemed great. We returned to our room to discover that someone, either during dinner or while we were at breakfast, had stolen my computer. The owner talked with his...

Most hostels have one feature that sets them apart from the rest. While otherwise rather average, I really loved the Weary Traveller's unique selling proposition: free caipirinhas between 6:30 and 7:30! OK, a free cocktail is always nice (and four are even nicer) but what I liked most about this is that it brings people together. Just before 6:30 the...

I spent four nights here. I took a private room as I'm a bit older than most people staying here and I was on a two week holiday rather than a longer adventure. This hostel was a great place for a few days. The free breakfast well surpassed expectations of what you normally get in a hostel. And the free...

We three middle aged British guys are travelling around Quintana Roo, booked ahead from Playa the previous day and arrived after the hour long journey by collectivo (40 each) at 14:00hrs and walked the block to the bright cheerful WTH and into reception.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Weary Traveler Hostel Tulum was started by backpackers for backpackers back in the year 2000. The hostel was built around what they themselves wanted to find in a good hostel when they were traveling. A good social vibe A book exchange A bar with backpacker prices Communal Kitchen (loaded with free spices, salt, pepper) Full Cook Your Own Breakfast Free Rice, Pasta and lentils for dinner Good Advice on Tours and Activities Some aspects of the Weary Traveler Hostel Tulum appear to be unique but they are not. Many of them came from other hostels where we had stayed long before we dreamed of opening a hostel in Tulum. For example the Burn Your Own BBQ was inspired by the Bondi Beach Hotel's incredible steak barbi setup inside the bar. Huge, beautiful cuts of beef were in a display fridge that was part of the bar. You would say, "Yeah, give me that one!" and huge chunk of raw red meat came at you on a platter. It was your job to cook it how you wanted it. The Weary Traveler Hostel Tulum has changed, evolved, gone back to our roots and changed again and again over the years. We have always tried to evolve as a hostel, stay ahead of the competition and anticipated the changing needs and desires of our guests. So welcome to The Weary Traveler Hostel Tulum, mi casa es su casa! John, one of the originals from way back when. ... more   less
