For a homey vibe on the Yucatán Peninsula, it’s hard to beat Mama’s Home. The friendly proprietors put a lot of effort into their daily breakfasts (included in the price). Fresh bread, eggs and local produce cater to varying dietary needs. The blue and white dorms, along with private rooms (featuring en-suite bathrooms), are super clean and come with air conditioning. Relax in a hammock, socialize with fellow travelers on swings or rent a bike to head to the beach with your new amigos.
