its a big area but in the same time a cosy place with a nice pool and a beautiful reception area with a "palapa roof top". All the rooms have a fan and the price is really fair. Rigel, a mexikan woman run the place and she and Mathias are really helpful to book tours or rent a board! Supermarket... More

This hostel is in a great location! 5 minute walk to Carrizalillo beach, bars, restaurants, cafes, and convenience store. Walking distance to Puerto Angelito, Bacocho beach, Mercado Benito Juarez, and the Supermarket. Zicatela beach is an easy 30 minute walk or a 6 peso colectivo ride. We enjoyed our stay here, met some great people and loved the generous mango... More

If you're coming to Puerto Escondido to be at the beach, relax and be around great people Shalom is the spot. It's right by the best and most beautiful swimming beach that's a little more calm and less touristy than the main beach. There are restaurants and shops near by, but it's not on the main strip so it's an... More

As a surfer, I spent 3 weeks in Shalom, I can just say: Perfect spot to be, when you want to enjoy the gentlle Carrizalillo waves. Just a 3min walk away from THE beginner-intermediate surf spot in the entire area Carrizalillo, the location is just amazing! And by the way, from the looks Carrizalillo is also just a dream come...

This is a cheap hostel with swimming pool. It's huge for a hostel, but the installations are good preserved. The staff was very helpful, in addition the most of them are very friendly. Also is well-located, near to the beach Carrizalillo and in the end part of a boulevard with many interesting locals (food, beer, cafes, clothes...).
