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.

A bit off-centered, about 10 minutes walk or taxi to anything (beaches, mercado). The pool absolutely great in such heat. Staff pretty friendly and helpful. Very laidback place.

You will definitely have fun if you stay here. A nice pool - needs a clean, a really fun bar with cheap drinks and they had a delicious seafood BBQ during our stay! Only drawback is the location, it's a bit of a mission to get to the beach (about 15 min walk), especially on a hot day!

Hands down one of our favourite hostels! Feels like a home away from home. Chill staff, not too many rules, always nice crowd to hang around with. You can cook your own meals in the kitchen, surprisingly fast internet for Mexico, the bar is open every night and during the day you can drink your own beers while floating in the pool. Location is convenient, a short walk from the local market (yummy food for little money) and 3 different swimming beaches. We keep going back. Thank you Tower Bridge!

The staff were too fun, the drinks were too good, and they had too many hammocks. Staying here for 6 weeks has been a dream! Just a bunch of regular beauties running the place, bar is open every night, can bring your own drinks to lounge in the pool & hammocks during the day. On a scale of 1 - 10 I'd give it a f*&k ya! Great surf near by, tons of delicious food, and the Market is just a short walk away. Being near the Market in Puerto is a huge treat!

The hostel was somehow expensive and the staff wouldn't care about guests being extremely loud from 4 am to 6:30 am. That may be fun if you are the one making noise, but when you need to sleep it is very annoying, specially when the rules of the hostel said "silence from midnight". Rooms are OK, very basic though, not worth 25$. It is far from the beach. During the day (when no sleepless night noises and shouts around), the atmosphere is quite good.

Our hostel is known as a place where people come to enjoy themselves, and during Semana Santa there were 50 young people, mostly students, doing exactly that. I'm sorry you picked a wrong place for your quiet getaway. Quiet hours apply from 12pm to 8am, but of course that doesn't stop some people from making noise when they are returning from the clubs.There are plenty of hotels by the beach that can offer you peace and quiet for 50$, during peak season such as Semana Santa 100$.

The best hostel I have stayed in. Although it is a bit far from the beaches, there is one which is close by and the others are a cheap taxi ride away. The atmosphere next to the the staff is definitely the best part of this hostel. There is an amazing bar where you get to mingle with other guests and possibly make lifetime friends. The staff is always there ready to help and always with a smile on their face. This is the second time I have been there and it is a must come back. Best hostel ever!

I did enjoy my stay. Staff is very friendly, Ben/Paola, are willing to give you any info that you need. It's a 10 min walk to the beach and really close to the market, you must go and eat the street tacos by the market. It's incredible, ask Ben for directions. It's not the far from the city just get a cab and it's only 30 pesos.

Tower bridge is a little paradise for backpackers. The hostel has a great vibe with a pool, hammocks and a bar. It is a good party place with nice people and a lot of fun. Make sure you try the amazing cocktails made by the best barman in town. The staff is awesome, really helpful and welcoming. Good location 10 min walking from the closest beach, the rooms are clean and spacious. You will have a blast!!

The hostel is located 15 min on foot away from everything (not in the center). The beach, airport (no noise), bus-termina, central market, shops/restaurants (many close early at 8pm) and the PEMEX-Station which is kind a busstop for colectivos in many directions. The common area is cool with a clean pool, kitchen and bar. Most rooms are clean except the bathroom (privat room) which looked very used and water dripping down from the roof (leak?). The staff was very friendly, helpful and fun.

Great hostel, great staff (who love to party). If you want a chilled out hostel, with a bar and party atmosphere stay here!

This place has great potential but was a little quiet for our stay. The staff tried their best to get everyone partying but unfortunately you can't bring any outside drinks into the hostel after 5pm and beers are 20 pesos each. Dorms are nice, lockers for all and towels provided. They let us check in as soon as we got there in the morning which was so nice after such a long bus ride. Staff were incredibly helpful with advice. It is close to beach and markets but taxi ride from main party street.

This is a definite party hostel. The music is blasting every night. My girlfriend and I weren't really in the party mood both nights we were there so it's a good thing we brought earplugs. But if that's your scene it's a good place! Good staff and nice rooms. Location is okay, need to take a taxi if you want to hit the beach
