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

    We originally had book two nights here bit ended up staying a week as we loved this place so much! Such a wonderful ambience and throughly enjoyed the company of everyone staying at this hidden gem. The rooms were great, the pool was awesome and breakfasts delicious and great value too. The staff were so helpful and friendly. We couldn't of asked for better service here. Pretty sweet location, nice and quiet street but very accessible incl. markets and beaches nearby (closest about 10min walk).

    Great stay at the hostel. All of the staff were so friendly and helpful. The bar is amazing and has delicious cocktails so cheap every night. There are shuttles to the beaches everyday, but you can also just walk to a couple of the nearby ones anyway. The rooms were pretty hot, but to be expected in that kind of heat anyway.

    Pool was really nice and breakfast was pretty good. Pretty chill vibes when I was there but spoke to some really nice people too. Bed wasn't the comfiest and water pressure low, but no dramas, still slept easily

    Amazing communal area with pool and nice atmosphere. We felt a few things let it down a bit though - eg two days in a row we put the sign out for our room to be cleaned but it never was, breakfast wasn't as good as we'd hoped for 50pesos (better options a similar price nearby) and the bedroom was just so so hot - feels like better/more fans are needed. Generally a good place to stay though.

    A little bit far from town/bus stop/beaches. The buffet breakfast (additional charge) is good value for money. The bar area and pool provide a great space to meet people.

    Pros: Friendly, helpful staff Great pool and bar hang out area so it's easy to socialise Relaxed vibe in a great setting Plenty of info on activities Cons: Run by a lot of volunteers, mostly German, who have are a bit cliquey and disorganised The hostel is out of the way. 15+ minutes walk to the beaches, which is long in the heat and humidity of Escondido - would be a good idea if they had bikes for rent. Overall I enjoyed my stay and would stay again if better located.

    Atmosphere is social, but in my opinion, it's not worth the poor night's sleep. I've never felt a harder bed in my life, very cheap & shaky bunk beds, my pillow was covered in black mildew and they couldn't provide a new one at first until the second night I was there. Bathrooms are as bad as they come & it's very loud with any amount of people I the bar. Come here to party, don't expect any comfort.
