Property Description

Ideally located right in the cultural center of Puerto Vallarta, the famous boardwalk with delicious street food, performances and a strip of cozy bars, clubs and nice restaurants is in walking distance just two blocks away from the hostel.
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.
The hostel has opened its doors in November 2017 and provides all the comfort to make this place your home away from home: new comfy mattresses, fast WiFi reaching every single bedroom, a patio with a huge TV and Netflix to chill out as well as common spaces with Pingpong and table soccer to make new friends and have fun. What distinguishes the hostel from other inns in town is its incomparable méxican style in every corner: painted murals, the dedication of our rooms to famous méxican personalities and of course our méxican style food and the hostels’ events.
Not a party animal? No worries, if you want to take it slow and need a little space just for yourself, besides our 4-,6- and 8-bed dorms we also offer private rooms and quiet spaces to relax.

    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.

    Great fun! It can be very hot at night, but that's about the only negative I can think to say and that is more about the location than the hostel itself.

    I would highly recommend Hostel Vallarta! Awesome location. The big dorm rooms are great, right near reception so the wifi is strongest. The rooftop area is gorgeous, and a social place to hang out in the evenings to meet other guests. Breakfast in the morning is super simple - pancakes (cooked for you!), and coffee. Drinking water is available at the hostel, and there are 2 oxxos nearby to get any bevvies or snacks.

    Nice hostel, nice staff, in a good location to party. Also there is every night something going on. Its especially nice to sit on the rooftop terrace and drink some beers or if you dont want to party there is a whole nother area to chill. The only thing that bothered me was that yellow bright wrist band I had to wear all the time.... made me feel like I just came out of a club or I'm part of a tour group or resort.

    Unfortunately this hostel didn’t meet my standards. It was quite dirty and the beds were definitely uncomfortable. The rooms have no AC and the bathrooms are awful. If you’re looking for a place to get drunk with other tourists then this is the place for you. I preferred something more clean and quiet so I could wake up early and explore PV

    I expected a lot from this hostel due to the pictures online and what I’ve heard from people, but the AC in our room didn’t really work, it stank like s**t in there and there are barley any bathrooms in the hostel. Also the ladder of my top bunk was broken so I couldn’t really get up my bed. The breakfast was really good though and our night out was also really fun. Wouldn’t go there again though

    Staff were nice but unknowledgeable, vibe was nonexistent unless you just wanted to smoke, upper bunks had no safety rails. It is not a clean hostel and only one fan in a 10 person room which made it very hot and uncomfortable!
