    Awesome stay at Vivo Escondido. We ended up doubling our stay! The private rooms are spacious, clean and have everything you need, especially the A/C. Location wise, it’s not on the main beach, which is absolutely no problem as there are plenty of nice beaches to chill at close to the hostel. Staff was extremely helpful with booking tours and figuring out nice places to eat. Also, common area and pool were awesome. It’s very easy to meet people because of the great atmosphere. Thank you✌🏼

    Best hostel I've been to so far in mexico (month and a half of exploring half of Mexico and a lot of hostels), the staff was amazing you could easily forget that they're working there and not your best friends (Roxy) The place itself is beautiful and very colorful, the location is really good, close to the less populated beaches of Puerto escondido and the beginners surf beach - playa carrizalillo.

    I had a great time in vivo escondido. The place is located minutes away from the beautiful coral beach and in a relaxed neighborhood. Met really nice and fun people. Big Thanks to Roxy AKA Roxan for treating the guest as friends. Also to Matt for taking me to Thi boxing Aydi for drafting us from Mazunte Adelen and Meggy! Also pool with volleyball you can take snorkeling gear and beach games from the hostle. Air condition in the rooms and everything is clean. Also well equipo kitchen.

    The staff are amazing. Thank you to Roxy, Idy, Clara, Mats, and Adeline for making the experience great! The place has a relaxed and homey feel. People are friendly and open. Sleeping quarters are comfortable, and AC at night is very good at cooling the room. Showers and bathrooms are easily accessible. Pool is great, and the bar is regularly stocked. There are restaurants close by, including multiple beaches. Time truly stops here. Highly recommended.

    We had a very lovely and relaxing stay here. Ended op extending and could have stayed longer. Manager and volunteers were friendly and especially Roxy and Mats made our stay memorable! Newly renovated pool, showers and beds (VERY nice). Hostel's got a pet dog and cat and the place really feels like home. Nice kitchen, free water and good coffee. Aircon starts at 10pm, which could be a bit late for some, since it's very hot. Would definitely recommend and would stay again anytime.

    A lot of volunteers at the hostel making it feel quite clicky and had a weird atmosphere. Some said hello others ignored you. Hostel has potential and cool graffiti. Was looking forward to the pool but there was loads of bugs in it and I don't think it was cleaned the two nights we stayed. Dorms were good size and had lockers but air con wasn't switched on until 10pm and fans didn't cut it. Close to beaches and restaurants which was a plus
