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.

    This is a very fun Hostel with very attentive staff and a very kind owner. I would highly recommend this hostel to those who enjoy an onsite bar which opens up with drink specials and music around sunset. It’s a great place to stay if you’re looking to socialize and the pool is crystal clean and so refreshing!

    Tower bridge is excellent value for money. Pool is amazing! Shuttle to beaches handy. 20 min walk from bus station, few restaurants near but Oxxo 100m. Guest kitchen often gross from untidy guests but it was lovely after cleaning in the morning. Some non plastic cups/bowls would be nice as hot plastic isn’t great for health. Only 3 toilets but never had to wait. Very social but no party pressure. Water bottle refill is 5 pesos a day, no outside alcohol while bar is open, breakfast 50 pesos pp.

    It's a very nice hostel with a great pool and nice atmosphere, unfortunately a bit far from the beaches (but there is a shuttle bus driving to the beach every day). The owner is very nice and helpful, the rest of the staff is also kind. The double room was quite nice. You have to know it's rather a party hostel as it is very noisy even after midnight and the walls are also super thin, you can hear everything that is going on in the next room.

    beautiful place! love the pool! the volunteers need more training, I was expecting them to help me with itinerary like getting the collectivos and planning my day instead of just making me look it up. It seemed like a chore everytime I asked for help. Please warn your guest about the angry cat she literally attacked me! But I made some great friends there, nice place bring mosquito oil. wifi is slow
