Absolutely loved this hostel, the staff is super nice, there is a pool and lots of hammocks and chairs to hang out in, bar that happening every night. About a 20 minute walk to the beach. TIP: it's quite close from the airport, we didn't walk but you probably could, when we arrived everyone was husseling to get us in the taxi, if you walk a little down the road outside the airport there are cheaper taxis waiting, worth the quick walk to them (they are green and white or red and white stripped).


Great value for money , amazing and helpful staff.


If it weren't for the staff this hostel wouldn't be as great as it is!! They provide a great party atmosphere and the pool and hammocks are nice. Not aircon and hot. Dorms smelt like toilets. No hot water (not that you really need it because it's so hot). I had a great time here though. Lock your stuff up - not very safe


Awesome place - typically people book 1-2 nights and stay 1-2 weeks - we did! The pool and pool bar are probably the best bit, and the hammocks - especially in off season when its almost too hot to go the beach. However the beaches are close - and gorgeous. Would stay again!


Awsome vibe. Very helpful a friendly staff always up for a good party. Try the dirty mother cocktail at the bar. A little far from beaches but nothing that 30 pesos in a taxi can't sort out. Best value for money private room we have had in the whole of Mexico.


The hostel is nice and the atmosphere very friendly; there are a little swimming pool, a lot of hammocks and some corners where having relax. It's quite close to the bus terminal and to the mercado central but quite far from the beaches (25-30 min. walking) and from bars and restaurants. Unfortunately there is free Wifi but not free computers and no washing machine. Our stay in Tower Bridge Hostel was nice!


Very nice environment, lots of fun, warm and helpful staff.

This hostel is incredible! The tropical laid back feel and pumping bar adds for such a tight knit experience where you will meet and party with everyone in the hostel the staff are so helpful and awesome people Joanna is so welcoming and and will help you with anything! Collin runs the bar and knows exactly how to party and get everyone involved, the spinning of the wheel is also a big contribution to the hilarious shinanigans that go! I'll see you in 5 months guys


This hostel was excellent! Booked in for 1 night and ended up staying 3. It is pretty close to the most beautiful beach for swimming / beginner surfing and a short taxi away from the main strip of shops and cafes. Hammocks and the pool were fabulous. Real communal atmosphere too.

Thanks for staying with us, and thanks for extending one more day to celebrate my birthday (pics and videos on our Fb page soon, whether you want to see them or not). It was a real pleasure to have you here - travelers like you make the communal atmosphere most people are looking for in a hostel. Safe travels. Xx
