Property Description

Bonobo Surf House is your home close to the beach, it´s more than just a hostal, it´s family, it´s an experience!
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.
Our guest House is just 3 minutes from Carrizalillo, one of the best beaches of Puerto Escondido, perfect for swimming and your first surf experiences.
You gonna find a lot of delicious restaurants and nice shops around the corner, 4 paradise beaches are in walking distance and if you need some nightlife - Zicatela and its Bars and Clubs is just 8 minutes in cab.

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.

The breakfast is included and of the nicest moments of the day. Get together at the pool area to enjoy some fresh fruits, a creamy porridge (dairy free) and all the coffee you need for a good start into the day.

    My brother and I arrived to PE a day before the rest of our family. We stayed one night at Bonobo and absolutely fell in love. In fact after a night at our Air B and B we wish we could go back to Bonobo. We enjoyed the atmosphere and other traveling guests. It’s in a perfect location to the best beach and restaurants. I will be back if ever in PE again. Thank you Bonobo.

    Reasons to stay in Bonobo: 1.- Facilities are clean. 2.- You have a clean pool after walking in the heat of the town. 3.- Is within 5 min. walking distance to Carrizalillo beach. 4.- STAFF, all of the people from Staff were just great. 5.- As a solo traveler it is impossible to not meet more people, they have a lot of activities all of the days where you can meet other travelers. TIP: If you want to take Surf lessons ask for Jordi, lessons with him were so cool. Thanks for all Guys, Carlos

    Great location for Playa Carazallilo and 40peso taxi ride to main restaunt area. Breakfast was nice and fresh. Staff was helpful. We booked on the top terrace and got a nice breeze which helped with the heat and had a great view! Showers were a little weak and cool, but it was fine bc we didn't need hot water at the end of a hot day. Very clean and beds made daily! Also helpful that they offered a big jug of water so we could refill our water bottles and cut down on plastic waste.

    I had a nice stay at Bonobo surf house. I wasn't too impressed with the cleanliness of the hostel and I had expected that the rooms would have AC at night considering the heat of the region. The staff and the volunteers were super friendly and helpful.

    V comfy beds and a fan for each bed which was definitely needed, loads of kitchens so never a queue for cooking n family dinner was great fun. Breakfast was nice but the same every day which could get boring if you stay for a while. The closest beach is great for beginner surfers. Could do with some more toilets as there was often a queue whilst someone had a shower. The nice view from the top floor balcony felt difficult to enjoy as the balcony had been made into another ‘dorm’.

    Loved this hostel. Was offered coffee or water on arrival. Each kitchen has fab facilities. Great people are attracted to this hostel. Strong surfing vibe. Pool is just an extra bonus although is not large. Happy hour extended for us and they were really yummy. Hostel also hosted a free Salsa class on Wednesday night. Breakfast basic, porridge but doesnt mean boring. Delicious. Would book again! 😍

    The location is good has a Zicarrillo beach closer 5 min walking and it’s a wonderful place! You should take a drink... Jordy is a good barman! the internet in my room was no good and the door didn’t close so the door was always open.

    This is a sociable and fun hostel and situated in a great location to get to one of the best beaches carrizalillio. The breakfast is great and there is a kitchen on each floor which is useful if you want to cook for yourself. The staff are great too! The hostel does need a bit of updating as the bathroom ‘windows’ are all broken so people walking down the stairs can see in when you are showering. The pool didn’t look that clean either.
