Property Description

We love children and know that they need protection. The hostel’s layout is not adequate for children as there are galleries without handrails, chemicals at the pool and drinking games at the bar. That´s why we are happy to host anybody 18+.

We are situates in an 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 (60 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.

    What a place! It’s easy to get sucked in at la punta or zicatela but here you get so much more and also it’s half the price! The breakfast buffet is amassing and a must, the design and vibe is so social and fun, cheap bar with great bartenders, lovely pool, free shuttles to the beaches! Everyone recommended it and I felt so lucky to find myself there! Thanks Tower Bridge

    Probably the nicest hostel I stayed in Puerto Escondido. The private room (#5 I think) was big, the pool was great and in the evenings the bar had drinks for good prices. I stayed one night in another hostel in La Punta and found it much worse; in any case you can get to La Punta by taxi for 50-60 pesos for the nightlife.

    Pros: Staff is very friendly and helpful. The owner actually leads some of the trips. It was cool because only about 5 people signed up but he still took us to some waterfalls that were like 1.5 hours away. Any other owner could have easily cancelled (the minimum was 6 and even though only 5 signed up, they still went with the trip). Party until midnight. Con; You can do a long walk (30 minutes) or cab to downtown. Once you go to the bars its probably safer to take cabs back at 3am.

    Very Good

    10 Apr 2021
    We stayed for 8 nights and had a good time here. The staff was helpful and nice, but the music coming from the bar was often obnoxious and offensive. It's a party hostel but quiet hours start at midnight. The location is okay, it's close to the airport but around a 20 minute walk to Playa Carrizalillo and the restaurants in Rinconada. If I go back to Puerto Escondido, I will probably stay in La Punta or somewhere that has more restaurants nearby.

    Did not enjoy my stay here. The staff was nice, but they were doing construction on the pool. Very loud machinery and dust everywhere. Was not relaxing at all. Was told at check in that it should be the last went on every day I was there. They should have reached out and let people know the condition of the hostel. They definitely shouldn't give there guests false information.
