    This place felt like home away from home. Ive spent the past couple months working remotely and La Escondida has been my home base. The wifi was great for working plus Puerto Dreams has a relaxing coworking space with a dreamy garden. The whole Puerto Dreams team and volunteers make you feel at home as soon as you check in. The owners were absolutely wonderful and a warm presence during my stay. I will definitely be back in the future.

    My Stay at la Escondida was amazing! I loved the vibe around the whole hostel. Everything is super clean thanks to the maintenance staff that comes everyday. The whole Hostel Team is super nice and helps you with any question or problem you might have!! The chill areas are amazing, you are surrounded by greenery wherever you go. The location of the hostel allows for a not so touristic experience. I would definitely recommend!!:)

    Great hostel with excellent social areas!! I found these really easy to meet people. They also host events which bring people together. This is by no means a party hostel but you will always find someone to go with and catch a cab to the parties. The WhatsApp chat is helpful for events. The staff are very helpful and friendly. It is located in the centre , about 15 min from a beach so location is good. Lots of good places to eat around. Most parties are zicatela and La punta (10-20min cab)

    La Escondida/Puerto Dreams is a fantastic hostel! Well-run, with helpful and friendly staff, beautiful facilities, a great location in the center, right next to the market and many shops and local eateries. The vibe is relaxed and friendly, you meet great people there, there are lots of fun organised or spontaneous activities. It’s a perfect stay for anyone looking to make new friends and enjoy the area! The rooms are very comfortable, with good facilities and well-kept. Awesome hostel!

    This reminded me of an off-the-beaten path hostel that's centrally located in the authentic part of the city. The hostel was great and the staff were nice. The volunteers all seemed to get along great and made a great atmosphere for the travelers. When I was there, they had an all-white dress party to celebrate the birthdays of a couple volunteers. I only stayed one night, but I'd happily stay here again.

    Lovely hostel, great kitchen and relaxed social atmosphere with plenty of organised events and good places to meet others. While slightly out of the main areas location wise there are some lovely beaches and restaurants nearby so this isn't entirely a problem. Beds extremely comfortable good privacy curtains and facilities.

    A beautiful hostel and staff were really friendly, kitchen and common areas were also nice. However, it was quite far from the beach and we found ourselves getting taxis most days.

    If you want to stay away from the huge party scene (la punta) it’s a great location that feels far less gringo-y. There isn’t a whole lot of atmosphere in the hostel — part of the issue is it’s a very large hostel w many gathering places so it makes it harder to meet people. Lots of long term stays w people working. Overall pretty clean and showers had good water pressure. Rooms even have AC.
