    Best hostel I've stayed in! The property has 3 privates and 1 dorm. I was the only girl at the time but felt more safe than in some other hostels. The owners and volunteers have their hearts at the right place. It felt super welcoming. Only chill vibes at Buddha hostel! It's small so you know everyone who's staying there. Very respectful and quite place but always someone to hang out with. Located a few steps from the beach, this is your place to stay when you visit La Punta. Muchas gracias!

    By far the best hostel ive ever stayed in, with no exaggeration (and ive travelled alot)!! Where do you begin? The owners make sure the place is clean, safe and your every needs are met with a smile. Top marks. Expected. What makes this place is the positive energy and memories you will experience and cherish. Again, vibes created by the owners, volunteers and the guests who are all on the same level. Family vibes, true authentic old style hostel travel vibes! Truly memorable and unique!!

    I had such a fantastic stay! The atmosphere Pacific Buddha has created means that you feel right at home in no time, it is easy to meet people and get into the groove of the La Punta laid back lifestyle. You will no doubt be wanting to extend your stay. The location is in the middle of La Punta and close to the restaurants/bars and beach. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here and will most definitely be back!

    Great place to meet rad friends. Great communal kitchen! Really cool staff, although the place is pretty much left alone most of the day. If you’re sensitive to noise or the occasional bug bite/mouse poop don’t stay here.
