    The place looks amazing and the staff is really nice and helpful. There are events almost every night, where you can meet the other guests and have a tasty watermelon with the beautiful sunset on the beach. Breakfast was really good as well !!

    I've extended 2 weeks, so far. Delicious homemade breakfast changes daily and is made by the amazing Carolina, Feliz, Araseli who also keep the place spotless. Activities are in evening and balanced between one-day partying and one-day chilling events. My first ever yoga and it was incredible. Atmosphere is awesome - really fun place to hangout during day + 2 netflix rooms. Layout encourages socialising and it is really easy to meet great people here. so many people leave and come back.

    Very basic hostel but it has been by far my favourite! It felt like a little family and I could have stayed there for so long if I had the time, was so so sad leaving. Highly recommend doing the sunset yoga!

    Look no further than this hostel! La Escondida is the type of hostel you want to be at- beautiful staff, lovely facilities, you can party when you want but also chill when you want, amazing breakfast, organise nightly events so you get to meet everyone, great location- yes it is in central but is walkable to some beaches and a 8 peso collectivo to the others. We ended up rebooking again n again, trying other hostels then coming back. Vibe & atmosphere cannot be beaten!

    La escondido is the way to go! Best atmosphere, great for solo travellers, the facilities are amazing close to so many cheap restaurants, then next door is the sister hostel Puerto Dreams so you can go back and fourth. My stay was made by one staff member called Ana!

    I had a really fun stay at La Escondida first in the female dorm and then in the 6 bed A/C room. Would really recommend the 6 bed over the female dorm as I was boiling hot if I ever went in during the day and freezing cold because of the A/C at night in there. La Escondida is great if you want a mix of the party atmosphere at Puerto Dreams but also want the option to chill if you’re not feeling it. The volunteers were super lovely and always willing to help. Thanks guys for a great time!

    I usually don't give bad reviews, but this time I have to. The facilities are okay, even tho 2 showers / restrooms for the big dorms is a little stretch. My problem are the volunteers who apparently run this place, are constantly high and discuss where to find the best authentic Mexican food (in Mexico). It also is not quiet, the party may be next doors but it might apparently loss well be right in front of your door. I guess it's personal, but i've you're not into weed fueled conversations skip
