9 people per bathroom, small and crowded, bunks a foot away from each other, no circulation in dorm, loud music everywhere, all the time, brand new staff who knew nothing about anything, moldy smell, couldn't wait to get away from this place

Shabby, grimy frat party! I've stayed at lots of hostels in Mexico and throughout Central America, and I'd put Tower Bridges in my top 3 most obnoxious places to stay. It's got that spring break girls-gone-wild gringo vibe, where you hear dudes (and I do mean "dudes") shouting about how they "just finished my third beer bong of the day... More

A very warm welcome by T and Inge who make you immediately feel at home. I stayed longer than I had planned because I had such a good time. I had a private room which was nice and clean. There is a nice bar if you want to meet other travellers, but if not, there other places to relax. Defenitely... More

Fun and pretty it may well be, but the management is an absolute joke. I had booked to stay here some months in advance at a very busy time, When we arrived, we were told our reservation was no longer valid 'because there were some people in our room already'. A few days earlier, some people had occupied our reserved... More

It's a great place to make friends and have fun. It's a bit far from everything beach and clubs. But I had a great time there. I had a private room so it was ok not really super clean, but just ok. If you wanna have fun stay there, but if wanna rest look for another place.

This is a small and cozy hostel with a big courtyard with swimmingpool and pooltable. We had a lot of fun here since all of the guests where hanging out together and became friends. The hostel is very dirty and has old facilities. We had a lottt of cockroaches in our room. The owner was very friendly and helpfull, some... More

When we first arrived we were reafy to leave, the staff were rude and wouldn't acknowledge we had paid a deposit. Also the bathrooms in the girls dorm have no partitions and the door see through...which is weird. But after a day or two we realised how lovely the staff are and how much fun this hostel is. Unfortunately it's... More

I travelled to Puerto Escondido 4 months ago and had booked a room at Tower Bridge; upon arrival I was told (in a rather condescending manner) they were fully booked and I had a made a mistake (their internet was down so they couldn't check). They were extremely unhelpful with suggestions on where else to stay and when I contacted... More

We visited hostel Tower Bridge in May (slept in a private room). Planned a few days, ended up a week and probably would stay longer if we weren't in a rush of time. This hostel is not that clean (the rooms are, but the rest of the hostel not so much), but we didn't mind that beacause it just has... More

Hey hey, this place is RAD! A little out of town yeah, but within walking distance to the market and a convenience store. Cabs everywhere are generally a set price and let's face it nothing is too expensive. The hostel itself has an awesome atmosphere, a great pool, and awesomely friendly staff that made our visit all that more pleasant.... More
