    I can highly recommend this hostel, very clean, nicely decorated, great breakfast, staff is friendly& helpful. You can go across to Puerto Dreams if you feel like some more party (they are connected) or stay here and chill in the hammock. The free bikes are a big plus! Overall a great atmosphere!

    I‘ve been returning so many times, it just feels like a second home!! Everyone is just super chilled and social and people tend to extend their stay, so it always becomes like a little family :)! Special thanks to Addis, Elias, Greta, Lauren & Natscho for welcoming me like I‘ve never been gone :)

    Hi stay here! Comfy beds with curtains for privacy, beautiful courtyard area, fully stocked kitchen for guest use, free breakfast, and access to the bar at the party hostel next door (connected by a staircase from the courtyard). They also put on fun events and have free bike rental🙌🏼🙌🏼. SO to Sara for being the best.

    I had a wonderful time at La Escondida. I started spending three weeks there and when it was time to catch my flight home, I decided to stay cause I liked it so much here. The staff is definitely the best part, cause it’s not just staff, but more of a family.

    We had such a lovely stay at la escondida/puerto dreams! The atmosphere was super laid back and friendly, plus they had a great party on the Saturday night! Also the receptionist natscho was so helpful when we had a problem with our bus and spent an hour on the phone for us!! All the other staff were lovely too. Overall had a great stay and would definitely recommend.

    Best hostel in Puerto, super relaxed vibe but the adjoining hostel next door which you have access to has more of a party vibe so the best of both worlds. Clean dorms and the staff were really friendly and helpful!

    Pros: very clean, different breakfast everyday, staff made a big effort to make a Christmas dinner for everyone Cons: Arrived at 7:45am thinking to drop the bags but the reception was closed despite sign saying it opens at 7am. Low ceiling, the upper bunk can barely get any air from a/c or fan Slow WiFi due to the number of guests from the two hostels combined In general lack of uniqueness. It has cool decor but you feel you could be anywhere in the world and not Mexico

    So I’m starting the the air con gimmick ac starts on at 10pm and off at 7am.. so you can’t get in the room from 9am to 10pm the 8 bed dorm room is so hot that is impossible to have a rest after a day at the beach.. all of us was complaining to the receptionist. I’m reviewing this to improve the hostel and make it better for travelers. then the staff are very helpful, the two hostels are with amazing atmosphere. Breakfast in the morning are good too.. and also offering free bicycles everyday 👌
