We are a young and very Hostel experienced team, we love what we do and our passion is your perfect vacation.

The house is created with love and everything a traveler could need to be a happy person. We work very hard on getting better every day and we hope you gonna enjoy it more than you expect.

We are a fun hostel, but not a ‘party’ hostel. We enjoy to be together, play cards or learn salsa, but we close our bar at 10.30pm so you can sleep well at night. If we need more fun at night, we grab a cab and go out to zicatela to dance and enjoy the beach life at night.
We offer comfortable dorms, beautiful private rooms, 4 fully equipped kitchens and a fun pool area with bar.
We count with several common areas to get to know new friends or read a book in a quiet corner.
And, yes - we have wifi, one of the best in Puerto Escondido (what does not mean that it´s an european High Speed Version, it´s still mexican).
We love to meet new people, beach activities, listening to good music by the pool, cooking together, surfing, dancing and we believe that the most important thing is the energy people create, when they get together to be happy.

Our staff is amazing and always smiling and willing to help you or take you out to one of the amazing spots of puerto escondido. We LOVE what we do and your happy smile is our best payment.

    Great times at Bonobo's! Good vibes next to the swimming pool, close to the beach and the atmosphere it's amazingly happy all day long. Safe environment and the lovely staff makes Bonobo a must go while in Escondido! I loved the chill music playing every day!

    Amazing place, the staff here make you feel so at home. The building is a great place to chill with the pool, you’ll need it in the hot 34 degree days. Stayed in the superior dorm and cant recommend it more. Get woken up every morning with sunrise ocean views and gentle sea breeze. Short 20min cab for 50 pesos to la punta for surfing too.

    I had a lovely but short stay here. The hostel helped book me on the bioluminescence tour when I arrived and it was great! However, I felt really carsick when I got back but the hostel staff and owner took amazing care of me - I felt so looked after! Everyone was lovely and the vibe was great. The only downside, which I think others mention, is that it is pretty hot at night.

    Bonobo is definitely one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. The staff is awesome and very helpful in planning and organizing lots of activities. Breakfast in the morning is great and the hostel is located in a quieter area very close to a beautiful and very quiet hidden beach. Bonobo is a very social place where it is very easy to meet people. Only slight negative thing I could think of is that there is no AC, the fans provided for every bed work well though.

    I loved Bonobo! It’s a great mix of chill and active. The scene at the hostel bar is super fun and welcoming in the evenings, but quiet hours are actually enforced so people who want to sleep will have no problem. Beds are also super comfy!! I did a bunch of the activities organized by the hostel, as well as some incredible that the hostel arranged for me. Always tons to do! Mostly though, the staff is amazing. They made the vibe super welcoming and you really feel like family. Thank you all!!

    I am super unhappy about the activity scheduled and cancelled by the hostel staff, after made a lot of changes and waiting around for more than an hour. The activity is organized by the hostel BUT conducted by a third party. THe same kind of cancellation happened the previous day and the staff didn't bother to check or confirm with the third party or not willing to hold them responsible. THey should either change the party that provides the activity or provide addtl. discount.
