    Excellent place to stay for the money. They do an excellent job at keeping everything clean. Location is perfect. Don’t stay anywhere else in Puerto. You want to stay in this part of town if you’re an international traveler. Trust me. I throughly enjoyed my stay and the people I met at the hostel.

    Really nice small hostel at La Punta, one minute from the beach. The vibe is friendly, chill and in general the fengshui in this place is good. Shops, veggie market and restaurants are right there, but it's not noisy. Easy to meet people, have few beers but the party happens outside of the hostel and you can sleep well there. Owners are very nice people and the volunteers are clearly selected very carefully, had a great stay, thanks again!

    An amazing little hostel with no negative connotations attached at all. The location is so close to the main street but hidden enough to keep it very peaceful. We stayed in a private room with a double bed and it became home instantly. the most comfortable bed we have slept on in mexico so far. Toilets and showers were always clean. The communal kitchen has everything you need and also created a great social setting. the pets were a plus. we were sad to leave!

    I really enjoyed my time here. The location is perfect -- tucked away off the main drag and a short walk to the beach. Everyone was welcoming and laid-back. I enjoyed socializing in the common area but also appreciated how there's enforced quiet hours to guarantee a good nights rest. Also, the entire property was also spectacularly clean which isn't something you see all too often at hostels. I'd gladly stay here again in the future.

    This place had a great vibe. I stayed in 3 hostels in Puerto Escondido and this one was the easiest to make friends in! The owner is so nice and chilled. Loved La Punta area in general

    Pacific Buddha have something special here. The hostel itself is gorgeous, with a tranquil garden, hammocks, and hippy-chic decor that makes for a lovely escape from the 'hustle and bustle' (lol) of Puerto Escondido. The atmosphere can be described in the cliche 'a home away from home'. The only negative I'd note is that the owner, who was otherwise very helpful, sometimes seemed stressed/short-tempered, which caused some (avoidable) tension between guests/hostel volunteers.
