“Awful”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2010

Messed up the booking, dirty, stinky sheets, full of roaches and no hot water at all. Just don't stay here....you can get other places with just as good a location for the same money and way better.

The Mayflower is a great place to stay as the prices are good and the rooms are excellent. There are great facilities - full kitchen, billard table, terrace, free internet etc. It is really close to nightlife and the beach of course. The only downside is that there are a few strict rules in place e.g kicking you out of the terrace at 11pm. We had a great time with the other guests too.

I stayed at the Mayflower with Minnie and the gang for over 7 weeks! Amazing! Minnie really knows how to show her guests the utmost courtesy and hospitality with unwavering professionalism. She fluidly jumps from German to Spanish to English.
Her place is large beautiful and super clean! Her staff are great! Security is friendly and gave me a real sense of safety. There is a spacious kitchen and great social area where tonnes of new international friends await. This hostel is great for the single traveler, groups of friends, and also families. There is accommodation that is appropriate for all types. Mayflower is a short walk to a major super market. Buses and cabs are super cheap and fun to get around in, but the hostel is a 1 minute walk from the BEAUTIFUL Playa Principal. If you're super lucky, there is sometimes a boat/beach tour that includes dinner and drinks put on by the hostel. We went to THE most beautiful virgin beach. Also, if you love surfing check out Playa Zicatela and hit GREKOS restaurant at the end of your day. I really cant say enough about how much I enjoyed my stay at the Mayflower! It is a jewel of Escondito! I will go back for sure!!! LOVE MALKA in Canada!!!

We decided to take the bus (suburban) from Oaxaca to Puerto Escondido if you decide to do this, take Dramamine before you get on the bus. It's a 7 hour mountain drive. The woman next to me vomited on my shoes and didn't fess up to it. The driver tried to get me to clean it up with a kleenex and my bottle of water. My Spanish wasn't good enough and the woman didn't even speak Spanish...another indigenous dialect.
But...back to the Mayflower. After a pretty long walk we found the Mayflower. We stayed in the hotel part and it was very cheap, which we liked. Our room was clean, the decor was simple but nice, and the staff was friendly. I would definitely reccomend this place for budget travelers of any age.

I thought the Mayflower was really cool. The location was perfect (unless you want to surf, in that case - stay somewhere on Zicatela beach). The staff was very friendly and they make sure it's quiet when some people go to bed. At 10 they kick you out of the dining room and at 12 you have to leave the terrace, no curfew though. Breakfast not included in the price.
