    BEAUTIFUL place and some amazing people. The owner and the house give great vibes. Just 1 minute walk to the beach and close by some of the most delicious restaurants in town. If you book for a couple of nights you will stay for way more than you anticipated. HIGHLY recommended!

    Akumal is a gem of a hostel. The owner is super friendly but vigilant when it comes to safety and locking that front door. The cafe/patio area is quaint and the food is delicious. The rooms are clean and the entire staff is as affable as could be. If I’m ever in La Punta again I know where I’m staying.

    I booked 2 nights and stayed more than 1 week. Really enjoyed the super friendly atmosphere. The staff is helpful and always in a very good mood. There were hockey competitions, game nights and always good music. At the same time, they respected the night rest at all times. I always had a very good sleep and enjoyed the closeness to the center of La Punta and the beach. Also, they have a very nice rooftop and café - Overall, I will definitely come back!!!

    Great place to stay. Feeling like Home, great energy, having close many places to eat, grocery and having the beach in less than 5 minutes walking it’s a great experience. Definitely I stay again.

    Great hostel in a great location. Eric and the rest of the team were always so friendly and welcoming, and there was always a fun chilled atmosphere. I stayed in a few hostels in puerto Escondido and this was the best by far. Booked 2 nights and ended up extending it to nearly 2 weeks.

    Excellent location and great staff. Only downside was no one wearing masks or social distancing, which is a problem in the whole area.

    Not a terrible hostel, but not all that great either. The dorms could definitely use a bit of a makeover, I think it’s quite telling that they don’t have any photos of them online haha. Staff were super friendly and they have lots of activities!
