Property Description

Authentic Mexican neighborhood with best swimming beaches in town

Tower Bridge Hostel is a beautiful oasis that has the amenities and charm of a small resort.
We are not in the very touristy zone of Puerto Escondido, but have a lot of exciting and reasonably priced activities to offer. If you are looking for the authentic Puerto Escondido you will find it here!
The area is very quiet and safe at night. Our location is right between the city center and Puerto Escondido’s only three safe swimming beaches. Playa Carizalillo, Playa Coral and Playa Manzanillo can be reached in 12-20 minute walks from the hostel.
Playa Carizalillo is suited also well for surfers at beginners and advanced levels, we are happy to help you with board rentals and surf lessons. The romantic bay is as well the perfect spot for swimming and snorkeling. It’s perfect for anybody who's after a relaxed Mexican beach atmosphere with crystal clear water and nice little local food places.
For the convenience of our guests we offer a free daily shuttle service to these three beaches at 11 am. You can rent snorkel equipment at the hostel.

Rich and Cheap Food
The local Benito Juarez Market with its lively Mexican atmosphere is just 850 meters (10 minutes) up the road. It offers authentic Mexican food and freshly made juices as well as flowers, handicrafts and souvenirs.
The perfect shopping place for people on a small budget or on self-catering holidays!
Around the hostel there’s a variety of very good cheap restaurants, cafés and taco places (5 for 30 pesos!). The prices are significantly lower than on the touristy Zicatela beach.

Social Melting Pot
The hostel's goal is to provide an environment where people from all over the world can get together, have a great time and share their travel experiences. Therefore the hostel is designed to be a social meeting point and offers a wide variety of amenities for your entertainment. These include a large barbeque area, games area with pool table, foosball table and a wheel of fortune at the bar. Our poolside bar serves hand shaken cocktails for a backpacker's budget.
The property is completely landscaped including a large free form swimming pool surrounded by a rock garden and colorful native tropical trees and plants, which all adds to the feel of Oaxaca, México.
DIGITAL NOMADS: WiFi has been finally upgraded. We are now receiving a fast signal via radio relay.
Extras provided: free outside parking, in all dorms there are power outlets in the lockers and USB contacts are installed at each bed with mini fans and reading lights, bar, public kitchen, breakfast buffet (50 pesos), towels, linen, different tours available.
Please note that we can clean your room daily if you like. Please ask for this service, as we cannot offer it automatically.

If you arrive earlier than 2 pm or leave later than 11 am we are happy to offer you our luggage storage service and you are welcome to hang out at the lounge, the bar or the pool. View House Rules

    Really fun hostel, and only about a 10-15 minute walk to the beach. The pool and hammocks are awesome, rooms and bathrooms are clean, kitchen well-stocked. The atmosphere was really fun, unfortunately I was sick while I was there so I didn't get to hang out with the other guests at the bar. I left very early in the morning before anyone was at the reception and Erik was nice enough to send me my key deposit via paypal. I would definitely stay here again!

    I stayed at the Tower Bridge Hostel for a few days and I was amazed by the atmosphere. The staff and also the guests are open - minded and convey you a feeling of being a part of them. Especially the cocktails at the bar are sooo tasty as well as the food at the surroundings! There is also the possibility to learn surfing for just a little money (and a lot of other activities) and the beaches are really beautiful and close to the Hostel. In my opinion the best place in Puerto Escondido !

    I and a friend of mine have booked one night in this hostel, but because we liked it that much, we extended our stay for two more nights. If we had been able to stay more time here, we definitely would have, but unfortunately our flight was already booked. Especially the atmosphere is incredible! All people, the guests as well as the staff, are so friendly, helpful and open-minded - so their slogan "come as stranger, leave as lover" fits absolutely!

    We loved it! The place has great atmosphere and the common areas are really chill. We meet Erik, the owner, and you can definitely tell there's a lot of love going into this place. I would only point out that one guy at the reception wasn't particularly nice during our three days for no reason whatsoever and that wasn't cool. That aside tbh the place is pure awesomeness.

    Really good social common areas. Bar on an evening was always lively. Kitchen to cook in can be hectic with so many people using it but we managed. Pool is great. Quesadillas just outside the hostel are incredible. 20 min walk to most beaches except Zicatela.

    Stayed during quiet season. Hostel offered a range of activities but hostel location wasn’t central. Taxis were cheap and there was a free morning shuttle to beaches.

    Staff were excellent and helpful. We stayed in a private room. Most things were great or at least decent about the hostel; however, our room had a terrible smell of mold. Not just some mild mold smell. It reeked of mold and mildew. The moldy air blasted us every time we walked in the room. The clothes we didn’t even wear ended up smelling awful/like the room after.

    Ostello più che spartano. Struttura ben organizzata negli spazi comuni ma la stanza privata che avevamo era davvero obsoleta. Non abbiamo trovato lenzuola pulite e abbiamo usato i nostri asciugamani. Staff non troppo accogliente tranne qualche eccezione. Posizione scomoda, consiglio l’utilizzo di un mezzo privato per muoversi anche se l’ostello organizza navette per le spiagge. Prezzi comunque bassissimi e molto convenienti.
