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 (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.

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

    Erik and the hostal team have been great! Welcoming, accommodation, clean, and friendly. The hostal has a “friends are family” vibe and know how to have fun, with a reasonable quite time applied. Perfect for balance if your up early to hike or explore. The eco-friendly facilities are clean, well maintained, and add comfort to a cute space, not to mention: how great is the pool! Five stars, will do again.

    My Favorite hostel in the whole world! I'll be back! The best thing here is that the owner Eric seems more interested in making sure everyone is having a good time, and that everything works, rather than making money. And he took care of everyone during the pandemic. Many thanks!! And if anyone reads this, go check out Taqueria Rocio!

    This place is sweet! It's a bit of a walk to the beach but they have free shuttles in the mornings. You will want to have a place with a pool when in Puerto Escondido and Tower Bridge has a killer one! Stay here.

    Bloody love this place. It's close to the airport which is really convenient, and you can get to the beach by 15 minutes walking. The best thing about this place is the chilled out, social vibe that turns into a really nice atmosphere in the evening! Loved having a couple of drinks and a boogie at the bar, but everything is reasonably tidied up by 12 so it's not a total mad house and you can still get a good sleep if that's what you're after.

    Very close to the airport. That's the only reason to stay there. Good hostal but there is nothing for the traveller/backpacker close by. It's a long walk in any direction.

    Pros: the design is really cool and having a pool for the price is a bonus. There was a good atmosphere and staff were helpful with local tips. 2 improvements: Guests should be informed when they check in about the 'no alcohol in fridge' rule or there should be a very obvious sign (not #3 on a list of standard kitchen rules). Really annoying having newly bought beers disappear Have an enclosed luggage storage space. The cat peed on my backpack while it was in storage which is super annoying.

    Very Good

    Friendly staff. Good pool. Good breakfast (extra cost). Free shuttle to the beaches every morning was really nice. Showers weren’t good and only had a curtain that blew open when people walked by. Bed (private room) was painful to sleep on.
