When yu come to theWeary Traveler as a couple wanting a private room, they now tell you they have them across the street; however, they end up being 3 blocks away. Number 6 had no hot water in the shower and the A/C didn't work; not counting the fact that yu had to put up 200 pesos depeosit on your...

This has to be the best hostel ever! Great atmosphere, clean, air conditioned. The back yard has a grill so you can cook your eggs in the morning and grill a burger in the evening. Lots of friendly people here and the atmosphere was really cool as well.All the staff are very friendly and helpful and theres a free bus...

We moved from the Casa del Sol Hostel and stayed in a under maintained very basic private double in a separate building (no facilities) across the main road and around the corner. The room was not very nice and the building old and desolate. You have to carry your bedding including pillows and towels with you and return them at...

This could be such a great place if the owners just invested a little more. The mattresses are really terrible with springs sticking out which make you scared to get pinched while you sleep. The bedclothes are terrible one piece thing with sheet and cover sawn together and sawn in pillow case. Very uncomfortable but I understand the benefit for...

the longer you book to stay the cheaper it is per night. The rooms are great and there is a great big long family table where everyone hangs, cooks and drinks. you cannot bring your own alcohol into the hostel and you buy drinks by using a swipe card - so you bill gets HUGE without you realising. VERY dangerous...

This is hostel is great for it's communal atmosphere, kitchen facilities and free extras such as water, wi-fi and a bus to the beach. It is particularly good for solo travelers. However, on our second night we suspected that the lines of bites on us were something other than mosquitoes and we soon discovered that our mattress was infested with...

I only stayed one night, but I really enjoyed it. Only problem is the dorm rooms were a bit cramped. Otherwise, they have a great breakfast option (free breakfast, they provide eggs or pancake batter, etc and you cook it on their grill). They have free shuttles to the beach. The people are nice and helpful. Definitely do the cave...

I spent neary a week at The Weary Traveler Hostel and didn't want to leave. Like they state on their website: the guests stay longer than they planed and so did I.

The Weary Traveler in Tulum, Mexico, is a popular spot with backpackers largely due to the free bus to the beach and its proximity to the Mayan ruins. The outdoor communal areas are excellent (unless it rains) – and more than make up for the cramped dorms. There’s a large kitchen with fridges, toasters and a barbecue where guests can...

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
