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.

    Amazing hostel, super close to some of the main beaches in Puerto! Ultra friendly staff and super fun vibe, good place to chill and meet people without being a 'party hostel'. Beds are good and super clean and breakfast is amazing! I've stayed at 5 different hostels around Puerto and this place is by far the best one!

    The hostel happy hour is a great way to meet folks, and drinks were super cheap. It ends early (10ish) which is great for people who are tired, but the party moves down to some of the local bars if you want a few more drinks or dancing. I also really enjoyed how shady the main courtyard and pool area was- it was plenty warm and the shade made it a refuge from the sun while I was sunburned. Crowd was a bit older (25-30) and most were actively learning Spanish. Staff was amazing and helpful.

    Nice hostel. I’ve been in the superior room which is on the 4th floor with double beds with mosquitos nets with a view. PROS; near the beach, many activities, pool, bar, great vibe, breakfast included. CONS; cold water, super humid/hot without rooms, no A/C, tiny lockers (cannot put luggages), same porridge breakfast everyday.

    Awesome atmosphere. There is a kitchen on every single floor which is so convenient. Out first room on the fourth floor had no door so we were basically sleeping out side. And there were no mosquito nets. I didn't seem to have a problem with it they supply free bug spray and every bed gets a personal fan. Even tho there's no AC I slept fine every night.the lockers are really small you really only keep your valuables in there. Great place to meet people.

    Absolutely loved my stay at Bonobo! The pool is amazing and so is the free breakfast of porridge and fruits. The free coffee, water and towels are a nice touch. There are activities every evening so it's a very sociable hostel. Only issue is the rooms don't have air con so it's very hot at night and my room smelt slightly of damp.

    Staff were lovely and really helped me when I needed to see a doctor. Hostel is a short walk from 3 different beaches which is great and 10 mins in a cab to the biggest surf beach. Privacy isn’t great here with no doors on any rooms (meaning lots of light and noise at night) and 1 shower and toilet between 8 people was problematic at times. Overall, friendly and relatively comfortable.

    I stayed here because all the reviews were so high. The hostel has good facilities, but it is a party hostel and I feel the reviews should reflect that. The upstairs dorm rooms have no doors and a bathroom is shared with 10 guests. There is an open wall feature, which gives great views but is bad for mosquitos. There is a relaxed attitude to drugs and its a noisy place to sleep. The lockers are too small so everyones stuff is everywhere. The breakfast was great as are the common areas.
