    A very nice hostel that’s about a 15 minute walk to the beach. The staff was very helpful in giving recommendations and tips for how to get around Puerto, Charly, Kai, and marifer were especially helpful! This place has events going on every day so it’s perfect for socializing and the vibes here are immaculate. The cleanliness of the place was very nice as well and the facilities are much better than expected! Overall a great place to stay, would 100% come back.

    The best hostel! Super clean, really spacious kitchen, collectivos to go to La Punta / Zicatela are right in front, and nice beaches within walking distance. All of the staff and volunteers are very helpful and friendly, special thanks to Gina & Kai for being so welcoming & positive :)

    We loved our stay here! Beautiful garden / hangout spots, great kitchen. Our room was comfortable and clean with a nice en-suite and AC. Location’s good as you can get to some of the best beaches on foot. Sunday night was the best with a trip to beach with volleyball, bbq, dj and drinks.

    Absolutely amazing hostel with so many nice people and friendliest staff I’ve met so far. They arranged daily activities and we went to all of them because they were so fun and engaging. I really recommend this place.

    The property was really nice, and it’s a very social location. The staff was very helpful, and it’s a good place to meet people. They host tons and tons of functions at the hostel. It would be great if you were traveling solo. You can easily take a bus/collectio to the beach for about 10 pesos or you can take a taxi for around 50-100 pesos.

    It's a nice hostel. Far from La Punta though. At daytime cheap collectivo, in evening/night only taxi so if you want to party a lot stay @La Punta. But hostel has fun social activities and I liked that it was in a local area next to the market and you can walk to the smaller beaches. Not all staff was helpful ("just google"or"just ask around") but the Spanish girl was amazing!! I think it's weird the nice roof top is staff area, and the route between 2 parts of the hostel needs light at night.

    Great staff, super friendly and helpful. Though there is not much happening. Great to chill out but not a lot of social activities.

    This is a quieter spot in Puerto Escondido as it is a bit far away from the main beaches. I did not meet many people while staying at this hostel. If you are looking for a place to relax, this is it!

    Our room was nice and air conditioned but the location of the hostel wasn’t ideal. You could rent bikes but they were rubbish quality. And the staff (volunteers) weren’t the friendliest. Kitchen was a decent size, a lot of food flies around the place though.
