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 ‘grill their own’ fish and meat. Breakfast is also included.

It can get pretty rowdy at night, with everyone congregating around the bar and playing drinking games until the early hours, so if you’re after a good night’s sleep then this probably isn’t the place for you!
