Once you’re not exploring Vallarta’s nightlife ‚Hostel Vallarta‘ is inviting you to chill out on our large colorful rooftop terrace, enjoy your free breakfast there with a perfect view of the ocean, beautiful sunsets, barbecues and parties with other backpackers.

    Just returned from a fantastic week at Hostel Vallarta. So easy to get to, you can take a ‘Centro’ bus from the airport and get off at the malecon (aka boardwalk) and it is only a few minutes walk to the hostel. It’s in a perfect location with easy access and walking distance to everything. Hostel has a great vibe and easy to meet fellow travelers. Staff and guests are super helpful in recommending activities and providing directions. I would definitely recommend this Hostel!

    Clean and beautiful hostel right in the middle of the Malecon. Super affordable, great service, super comfortable hang out space - I wish we didn’t have to leave! Two blocks from the boardwalk, great clubs and restaurants, and about a 10 minute walk to the beach if you want lounging space.

    Had a great stay, with backpackers from all over the world! Everything is close but I took buses to get to some awesome beaches. My only complaint was no A/C but I adjusted well after 1 night. There is a farmers market 1.5 blocks away, and Oxxo even closer, but breakfast was pancakes and coffee if you want that.

    Staff is very friendly and welcoming. Location couldn’t be better, many restaurants around and a convenience store right on the corner. The hostel could be cleaner and wifi could be stronger. Breakfast is just ok but you can also buy your own groceries.

    When checking in, staff weren’t friendly. 6 bed room with hardly any room to move between beds had 8 guests in it and only had fans, which made it extremely uncomfortable and impossible to sleep at night. Bathroom was not up to standard. Door to room was never locked. No social atmosphere either. Amazing location but this did not make up for the disappointing quality of the hostel.
