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.

    Really nice place to spend a cool visit in Puerto Escondido. It has a good location in a safe area pretty close to Carrizalillo Beach. The place has a pool and benches to rest after a tiring day. The staff is also amazing with a cheerful vibe.

    Had such a great time here! Ended up extending my stay 3 times because it feels like such a home. The place itself has a really chill vibe with a pool, netflix room, several kitchens and tables for socialising. It’s also close to several beaches and restaurants. The staff was also very helpfull, open minded and shared a lot of themselves. If I ever go back to Puerto Escondido there is no doubt where I’ll be staying! 10/10 from Norway.

    I planned to spend a few nights and ended up here for a month. The staff/ volunteers made my stay perfect As everything that they did was full of love! Heni made the best drinks ( and gives the best hugs), Lara has the biggest smile serving breakfast! Dani was always super helpful on reception and has the best recommendations for where to eat! There was lots of communal areas- a pool (necessity in Puerto’s heat) ,clean kitchens, a bar- makes it easy to meet lots people. STAY HERE 💜

    This might be my favorite hostel ever! What was meant to be 4 days turned into 2 weeks. From the second I walked in, warm smiles and lovely people greeted me. The amenities are great, events are fun, rooms comfy, outdoor spaces great for socializing, and the indoor spaces for respite from the sun. I can't say how much this place felt like home, and the amount of people I met that I'll keep in contact with later is awesome. Heny, Laura, Katia, Dani, Julio, and La Palapa, love and miss you all!
