I happened to walk past Weary Traveller on my hunt for a hostel. It is really close to the bus station, and it`s very well organised with a no-cash-until-you-check-out system. Dangerous for some. I was very happy with the free lentils, pasta, and rice. Cooking pancakes, or eggs (just the way I like them) for breakfast was no problem. It`s...

We got a room in the hotel. The sheets were annoying and the shower didn't work. The breakfast, which you had to make yourself, was poor value. Save yourself some money and choose somewhere better.

Weary Traveller has a good outdoor common area, helpful staff, and is a block from the bus station. I like that I can just leave my passport at the front desk, order beers from the bar without cash, and pay when I check out. They rent bikes, organize tours, and have a free shuttle to the beach twice a day....

Awsome hostel; clean, fun, breakfest, salsa and bbq nights, shuttle to the beach, wifi, music and great location and price. But-we stayed in a private room for 2 and these are the cons: the building with the private rooms is located outside the hostel, almost a block away! Its not fun to walk all this way every time. Second, for...

My husband and I stayed at the Weary Traveler in Tulum for two nights in August. We are retired, have a tight travel budget, and the Trip Advisor reviews sounded good. Neither of us has stayed in a hostel before, so we really didn’t know what to expect. The check in process was automated and very easy. The staff is...

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
