#20 of 132 Specialty lodging in Puerto Vallarta
Formerly known as Oasis Downtown Hostel, this is one of the few youth hostels in downtown Puerto Vallarta. We like to see ourselves as a refuge for travelers; a safe, fun, memorable place where life-long friendships develop. Be greeted (with an ice cold beer) by our friendly and helpful staff who also enjoy a good party! So if you want a good time here in Puerto Vallarta, come and join us. In total we have four dorms: we have an eight bed female dorm, two ten bed mixed dorms and a four bed mixed dorm. They all come with fans. There are also assigned lockers inside the dorms for each guest. The staff members organize some bar crawls, day trips to the beaches and Spanish lessons; feel free to ask for any events!
