    What’s not to love. At Pacific Buddha they have friendly staff, 2 lovely dogs, a clean hostel, and it’s soooo close to the beach. It does get hot in the dorm room but so will everywhere in PE when you have no A/C so just bear with it. I love the kitchen as it gives you the chance to cook with ease. Don’t come here if you just want to party and drink. It’s all about chilling out, enjoying the people around you and... few a cheeky nights out ;)

    Pacific Buddha is the best hostel I have stayed at so far in my travels. The owners Tyler and Angelina are both super welcoming and loving people, as are the staff members. The hostel itself is small and cosy, kept immaculately clean, the beds are comfortable and the kitchen is really well equipped. The common areas create an open and communal vibe, one that makes you never actually want to leave.. Overall, this place feels like home and that’s all you really want when you are travelling :)

    Hands down the best place we’ve stayed in our 7 months of travelling. The private room is spacious, the beds are comfy and the overhead fan is plenty to keep you cool at night. It’s close to the beach, there’s a wicked fruit and veggie market and a bunch of little cafes just around the corner. Because it’s smaller the place has a super friendly and social vibe and attracts a nice crowd of people. We often sat around having beers in the evening or ate together. Would stay again!

    We had a lovely experience at PB. It is a small and cozy hostel so it is very easy to meet the others staying there. The staff is great. The owner is very attentive and careful. It is very clean. A great little home base to explore La Punta from! Highly recommend.

    Amazing, very homey and chilled hostel, you instantly become part of the family. There’s only one dorm and three private rooms, so if you’re looking for a place, where you’ll get To know everyone and live together, it’s perfect. Great location, spacious dorm and super cute pets :). Would always recommend it :)

    Such awesome and friendly staff. Einstein, a very laid back and happy 8 year old dog is head of security and can be found on duty all day from a beanbag or ,when he’s too hot, the cold floor below the fan in the kitchen area. Really chilled vibe, close to the beach and restaurants. The owner also has a skate shop nearby and hosted a community skate even in the local basketball court which was great. one of the volunteers, gets a special mention for her insane hairdressing ability!
