    The house is very pretty! I really enjoyed my stay here, it was very chilled and I was looking for that. It’s very easy meeting people here and do stuff with them. The beach is 2 min walking and also the restaurants and shops.

    A home away from home - Tanya and Erik are fantastic hosts and the hostel is a two minutes’ walk away from the beach and stellar sunsets. Great kitchen and rooftop, and family vibes.

    I stayed here for about a month and this hostel truly felt like home. Very relaxed place with great common areas to chill out in, especially the rooftop. All the other guests were super lovely & overall Akumal just has a nice home vibe. Tania is really friendly & a great help with anything you need :) I'll definitely stay here again if I come back to Puerto Escondido!

    It looks like the pictures on the website were taken a while ago and the hostel doesn't seem to be maintained at all anymore. People I ended up sharing the room with were really nice but nothing was organised to get guests together.
