    Really lovely hostel! Love the vibe and the staff! Its perfectly located near the center where all the restaurants, bars and stores are but at the same time its still quiet silent at night. The beds are also comfortable :)

    Nice hostel with very friendly staff. We stayed there for 6 nights. Bed is more comfortable as couple (we travelled as friends) as it’s a queen. It’s very close to the main stretch of la punta which has both positive and negative implications. Walked to la punta break with surfboard daily, easily doable. Rooftop is nice. Beware of mosquitoes on groundfloor as it’s beautiful and green

    I loved my stay at Akumal, it’s perfectly located in La Punta with a laid back atmosphere, has a rooftop terrace with hammocks and one of the cleanest and best equipped kitchen I’ve seen. The staff are all very friendly and the manager made it feel like home.

    Beautiful little hostel in a great central location in la Punta. We booked for 3 days and ended up staying over a week. Ryan and the rest of the staff were so lovely to us, giving us some casual volunteer work for accomodation when we needed it. One of the best hostels I’ve stayed at overall

    Such a good place. About a one min walk from the beach and lots of restaurants and much nicer then staying in Centro. The hostel it’s self is chill beautiful clean and very safe feeling as if the area around. The safe are kind and accommodating and great for a chat or any advice. Definitely worth the stay with in puerto.

    Great hostel with really sweet pets hanging out. The dorm room beds were pretty comfortable and they have a great roof with shade. Private rooms are nice and have balconies in them. Staff was really chill and nice, the manager even offered to drive me to the airport for my flight. It's specifically not a party hostel - lights off passed 11. It's in a great location and overall I really enjoyed my stay. Only thing I'd ask for is having some curtains by the beds but tbh it didn't really matter

    The best thing about this place is the people. Ryan, Agustina, Nico and Margarita were so nice and accommodating to what we needed. They even let us leave our bags and shower there when we came back to Puerto Escondido for just a few hours to take our flight, and lent us towels so we could go to the beach. So so nice. That being said, I do have to mention that a cockroach walked over my friend’s leg when she was going to sleep on the first night. Ryan and Agustina were super nice about it, they gave us coc
