Property Description

Hola from the Oasis family!

We would like to welcome you to our hostel, (your home-away-from-home).

We opened our doors to backpackers and other world travelers in 2005, and we are proud to be the first hostel in Puerto Vallarta.

Built from the ground up, and little-by-little, Oasis now boasts four floors with dorms, private rooms, showers, and several “chill” spots onsite. You will never feel crowded at the spacious Oasis Hostel.

Begin your mornings with yoga or coffee on our rooftop terrace with its panoramic view of beautiful Puerto Vallarta. Or better yet, complete your day there with a refreshing “evening” beverage. Join other travelers, or relax alone. The option is yours.

When you travel, the location of your accomodations is a big consideration. Oasis is conveniently situated in an authentic Mexican neighborhood, just five minutes from all the tourists attractions including our world-famous beaches (by bus). Or fifteen minutes distance on-foot.

Speaking of convenience, there is a 24 hour Kiosko only meters away. But, if you get the munchies, and prefer to stay in, we offer a snack bar, with noodles, chips, candy, cookies, popcorn, soda, and water. You can even purchase a cold cerveza (beer) should you desire. Plus, there are numerous food stands within walking distance.

    Staff is super friendly and the view from the top floor is amazing! It was great to be in a location where you are away from the craziness of the core, but still close to everything. Breakfast was delicious. Highly recommend.

    I love this place. Always trying to make you feel at home. The breakfasts are great and the malecon is just a beautiful walk down the hill beside the river. I will be back!

    This is a family-owned business, that pays attention to detail in every way. From excellent Internet in all the rooms and including the terrace, huge Mexican-style breakfast, and perfect location, this is certainly the premier and five-star of hostel accommodations for a vacation or stay in Puerto Vallarta. This hostel is secluded in tranquil and quiet area of the city with only 7 minute walk to beaches and the Malecon. For a 1-10 rating for this hostel, it deserves nothing less than a 10.

    Fantastic family run hostel. A great place to relax the days away. Not a party place at all. Rooftop and common room were always comfortable. Ximena the volunteer was delightful and helpful. Breakfast was home cooked and delicious every day. Local street tacos behind the hostel are the best I've ever had. Rooms were clean and spacious but could use some new mattresses. Power outlets were sparse and the wifi was not great. Thank you senora and señor.

    Great staff. They held a Valentine's Day dinner. Few people staying during COVID. Great view. Pleasant walk to town and beach but lots of time and steps should be expected. Good breakfast

    The bed I rented was in a dorm but I was the only one there. I paid for a week. The next day the owner said because I had the room to myself I needed to pay $85 USD more for a private room. I refused and thought that was the end of the conversation but the next day he tried again. When I asked for my money back so I could leave he backed down but the whole experience left me uneasy and distrustful and insecure. One of the other guests said the owner tried the same thing with him so he left.
