Property Description

We are a nice quiet and colorfull hostel. 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.

With our staff consisting of locals and volunteers from all over the world, we know exactly what you need to see and to do while visiting our city.

    Full of colour and beauty, Hostel Vallarta is a treat for the eyes, with many imaginative murels and comfortable, picturesque spaces. I was greeted with a warm welcome by Maggie, who was always happy to help me with advice and suggestions. I didn't need to speak Spanish to build a friendly rapport with the manager, Alejandra. There are many volunteer staff from various origins, who were always bright, fun and engaging. Facilities are well-kempt, bed v.comfy, new + clean with good lockers closeby

    Hostel Vallarta is a fantastic travel hostel. There's an electronic locking gate which is very secure. The rooms are wonderful and clean. The rooftop terrace is fantastic for both an early breakfast (before the heat of the day) and watching the sun set. There are lots of interesting people from all over the world with whom you can connect and go on side-trips with. But the best part by far is the staff -- an amazing crew of friendly, helpful, and overall just wonderful people. Thank you all!

    My room was in the lower portion. It wasn’t pretty or anything. Doesn’t matter, this place was great! Volunteers/workers were great and friendly and there was an activity to do every day. At night there must have been some staff birthdays because there were tacos and beer for a small fee as well as guests just chilling and hanging out, drinking, playing party games. I’d definitely go there again if I was in PV in this zone.

    Hostel has super huge amount of common ground and a nice rooftop. The only awkward part is the check in. Not really anybody that sits at the front desk, but the door is gated and you need a FOB to get in which means secure. I happened to see someone that was entering and they brought me in and introduced me to who I needed to check in with.... You can see the ocean from the rooftop, and there are plenty of guests that are willing to share their knowledge about what to do in the area.

    Excellent stay at Hostel Vallarta! The staff are extremely down-to-earth and friendly, knowledgable about the area, and offered/shared excellent meals with us (pancakes, tamales, dinners, cake, etc). The owner went out of her way to make sure that we were comfortable and felt included in hostel happenings. The wifi was steady and there is filtered water provided. I would definitely return and will recommend to family and friends! Thank you so much for a comfortable weekend getaway!

    This Hostel is so close to the Malecon, easy to get to and from the airport as well as day trips around by local bus, is lively and welcoming. The rooftop is lovely and has views of the ocean. The free pancake breakfast is a nice touch. It's not the cleanest (don't let that keep you from staying here) but it makes up for it in charm! It is quite loud as it's on a busy road. In March it wasn't too hot. It is mostly staffed by volunteers but they're kind and bring their own talents to running it.
