Great Breakfast prepared just as you want it with fresh, natural ingredients. The cleanliness of the room is amazing, never did I feel sand on the floor even when the hostel is on sand. Our room was provided with a small kitchen, with a water dispenser and all the utensils you needed. It is totally the best option for people... More

When we got there, there was no one at the reception (even though there should have, as it was in the afternoon), a guest then gave us the cellphone number of the owner, David. After calling him, he came and told us our room wasn't available because they were overbooked and therefore we'd get an "upgrade". This already seemed kind... More

Hi. We took into consideration your comments and informed the owner of the house you got as an upgrade about your review on the cleaning. We are also evaluating other options thanks to your valuable review because, as a matter of fact, this house is not belonging to our complex. I don't agree with you about the comments of the...

Excellent cabanas, close to the beach, lovely hosts. Holbox is a great island, this spot is even more idyllic & tranquillo! Don't even doubt about the whaleshark tour (including a visit to the flamingos), just do it. An unforgettable experience! The beach walk to punta cocos is also recommended

nice, clean, water for free and cozy wooden casas and cute details all over the place. Owners are friendly nice people and even if you think seeing whalesharks is too touristic for me, you will be paralised doing it. Can´t do anything wrong with it

For one week I stayed in a dorm at this hostel and had a great time. The hostel is less then a minute walk from the beach and a few minutes from the centre of Isla Holbox (small supermarket at a minute). Rooms are cleaned on a daily basis and the general atmosphere is very chill. Good hammock area, tiny,... More

Best hostel i've ever been to. We slept in a beautiful private cabana, and were woken up every morning with the sun filtering through our yellow curtains and the sounds of the birds. It was definitely like paradise. The staff at the hostel were very friendly too, especially Antonio, the chef. He was a sweetheart, very helpful with questions, and... More
