Property Description

Open the door of the hostel, feel the sand of the ocean on your feet and start walking along the beach.
Living in front of the Ocean and near the Ocean is a big difference.
Relax in the shade of our large thatched roof and gaze at the ocean while relaxing in our hammocks.
Jumping from the hammocks to the Ocean is a privilege of living in front of the Ocean.
Surfing, chess and volleyball are our passions.
Our beach is located at the tip of Zicatela, one of the favorites of the surfing community.
Our location is excellent. We are facing the Ocean and behind us we have the main street, where you will find restaurants and surf shops. This makes it great so you don't have to walk long ways and go through dark streets. Save time and taxis.
You will find that this hostel is a small tribe.
We receive many volunteers who are traveling the world and make Hostel Zapotecas their home.
You will find a small community of adventurers who travel the world and work in the hostel in exchange for a bed.
They are artisans, jugglers, musicians who travel the world and make Hostel Zapotecas their home. View House Rules

    Really nice place cool stuff literally right on Punta beach (the best beach on the island). Don't know why all the bad reviews if you're going to a hostel and paying 250 pesos don't expect 5 star hotel facilities everything works and everything's clean and most importantly everyone is really cool. Atmosphere and vibe are perfect in this place.

    Pretty good it feels like the movie of the beach some cool people there they have the revolutionary vibe so dont expect nothing fancy. They respect each other. When i was there they had some sustainable eco building proyects going on so it was nice to talk about it and learn some stuff myself .

    The location of Zapotecas and the super friendly staff are what makes this hostel so amazing!! We would cook dinner in the kitchen every night watching the sunset in front of us over the sea, which I can’t say I’ve got at any other hostel. The staff are also so welcoming and are constantly trying to improve the hostel. Obviously the cleanliness could be a bit better, but you are practically sleeping on the beach under a palapa so you can’t expect 10/10 cleanliness.

    I really enjoyed my stay at Zapotecas. The location is amazing and the people are friendly. The only con is that it’s not clean at all, so if you’re a person that values cleanness a lot I would not recommend it, but I would definitely go back there again; the location is just priceless.

    The hostel is riiiight at the beach which is super nice, with everything you need close by! However, as previous reviews it doesn't have walls and there are a lot of stray dogs adopted by the hostel. We thought it was cute but good to have your expectations set right! It's not really a backpacker hostel, people here tend to stay for months and pretty much everyone we met worked for accomodation. There were no activities organised to easily meet people but it was okay!

    This hostel definitely lives up to the other reviews it has. If you’re looking for somewhere cheap and just a bed to sleep on then this hostel might be for you, but if you’re looking for a fun place to hangout and meet people maybe not. The hostel itself was dirttyyyyy, and I usually don’t mind a little dirtiness but this was next level. The staff were nice but not the most friendly and welcoming. So it’s a place to stay if your standards are low & you don’t expect much!
