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. Eventhough there are always people in the beautiful courtyard and you can get to know a whole bunch of backpackers from al over the world, you can relax...

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...

Having read a few of the references on here, I'm not quite sure what people are expecting from a hostel in Mexico, it definitely isn't of equal standard to a 1st world country. We stayed here for 3 nights whilst working out which cabanas to stay in on the beach. The reason it was a little long for Tulum non...

I think the lonely planet team should reconsider their recommendations about tulum. We had a private room across the street with no one there to host us. The fan was awful and we could see the cieling moving with it. Woke up this morning to ants in my brace case and a dirty shower. Windows taped up with a shoddy...

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...

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
