    What a lovely, quaint and beautiful hostel in the downtown of Puerto. Within walking and biking distance of all the main beaches (free bike rental). Wonderful staff. Was greeted at the door by Addis, who was so caring and mindful of every single guest. The salsa night party was LEGENDARY. The people staying there were epic. Best hostel I’ve stayed at in Mexico. Also, it connects to their sister hostel, Puerto Dreams so it is almost as if you are getting 2-for-1 hostels. Will come back again soon

    La escondida hostel is the real deal. You can tell the place is run with love. although many of the staff or volunteers they are very well trained and run a tight ship. It has a real hostel vibe in the sense that it feels like home and people treat each other as if they live there. Special mention for the Breakfast by Caro which is outstanding!

    This is the best hostel I have ever been to. The staff is incredibly kind, the hostel is buzzing with life, and the facilities are clean. The beds have curtains and private lights, the kitchen is amazing, and there are always fun social events happening. The bar has great drinks and is separate from the dorms, so you can chill or be social. Great location by the main market--and best of all--very cute cats.

    Just a very thoughtful hostel, good quality all round, no scrimping, comfortable beds, reliable internet/sockets/curtains, all that jam, a great design, relaxing atmosphere to be in with a good kitchen but easy to socialise as well especially over in the sister hostel. Staff are also fab, knowledgable, friendly, helpful, got it all. Breakfast v decent.

    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!

    Enjoyed my stay at La Escondida. Very social vibe. It’s a 15 minute walk to the next beach. Only thing: the AC didn’t really cool down the room during night. Except this everything was fine :)
