Property Description

Authentic Mexican neighborhood with best swimming beaches in town

Tower Bridge Hostel is a beautiful place in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca 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.
WiFi is free of charge and of course available in all rooms. All lockers are equipped with power sockets.
Extras provided: free WiFi, free outside parking, locker boxes with sockets for charging phones in the dormitories, 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.

Check in at 2pm, check out at 11am.

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

    One of the best hostels of our trip so far. Very cool atmosphere, nice pool and bar area, great breakfast buffet (so worth the 50 pesos!), very helpful staff and owner with really good recommendations.

    Tower Bridge is 100% one of the best hostels in puerto escondido. I stayed for a couple of nights in a private 3-bed room, which was really big with comfy beds. The only downside was that it had no fan and the en-suite was separated from the room only by a curtain but whatever I was into it. I’ve also stayed in the big dorm which is really comfy as well, and has fans. The hostel staff are also super fun (shoutout to Ellen and Lea!) and are up for hanging out every evening.

    Super social hostel with all the facilities and activities that you will need. Free beach shuttle in the morning, good breakfast, lots of hammocks, kitchen, decent pool, pool table and a bar with backpacker prices. We really couldn’t ask for anything more! Staff are really friendly and the rooms clean. Made some great friends here!

    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.

    The hostel is not in the center of town but they offer a free bus to the main beaches everyday at 11:00 am which is very nice. I highly recommend this place if you want to get the puerto escondido and not want a super crazy hostel but still want to socialize!

    Great place to stay in Puerto Escondido! With the best staff and owner, the bar, the pool with volleyball net, fooseball and pool tables, great privates and dorms; I cannot think of many flaws this amazing hostel has. Be careful though, you might catch the bug and never want to leave..

    Nice hostel, the owner is really friendly. The bar area is cool and it’s in easy walking distances to the beaches. Loads of volunteers work there which make it a bit cliquey but it’s still cool.

    We booked the en suite twin private which turned out to be a very uncomfortable bunk bed with a bathroom that you access via the kitchen. The common area of the hostel was really nice. The wifi didn't work particularly well and it's quite a walk to the beach
