    This hostel was perfect, great location, friendly people who were very helpful and informative with any questions and I had, good clean facilities and just a stone throw from the beach front! I really enjoyed the local area they have everything here from good food to yoga classes to great nightlife. I stayed for around 5 days and would happily return if my journey brings me back near this area🙌

    I highly recommend staying here. The family who own the hostel are kind and will help set up different activities around the area. Including a trip to a nearby lagoon where you can swim with bioluminescent plankton! Eric was very warm and welcoming. The location is walking distance from all the restaurants, bars, cafes, etc. but far enough away so you can sleep peacefully. Stay here!

    I loved Akumal. Eric and Sabi were great hosts, being incredibly friendly and helpful, as were the volunteers. The hostel is really chilled, attracts a variety of people from around the world, and very close to the la punta break. I originally only booked for two nights but ended up staying about a week! Will definitely be back!

    I had the pleasure to stay at Hostel Akumal for 9 nights. The hostel is very well located, bright and clean. The terrace was my favorite part of the hostel. There was also a fully equipped kitchen. What I love the most was the people there, from the owner of the place (owner and his wife); to the volunteers, and even the people working at the delicious coffee place next door, everyone was simply generous at heart with the best energy, I felt very welcome and so happy there :) highly recommend!

    Felt like a little family here. Staff were so kind and humble, and a great atmosphere with the other guests. 5 minute walk to the beach, shops and restaurants were right outside the hostel. We’ll definitely be back :)

    I you have to book a private room, choose the one with private bathroom. Rooster making noise from 4.30am till 8am. Strong smell of humidity or mold in the room. Great location 2min from the beach.

    Stayed for 1 night. Upon arrival the staff told me they prefer long term guests as opposed to short term stays, during covid it’s understandable. The room had a giant moth and a cockroach in the shower, apparently this is normal in puerto escondido. The small screens in the room also looked like it hasn’t been cleaned for months. Many hostels here are run by volunteers instead of professionals cleaners, don’t stay at the ones run by volunteers because they don’t clean like the professionals do!
