The Hostel is super close to some of the prettiest beaches in puerto. I stayed with a big group and even though our room was a little dark , it was huge. The Pool area is great and as we happened to be there for the hostel's anniversary we enjoyed an awesome party with free drinks for every guest. The bathrooms need better maintenance though. The owner is a very nice woman who was glad to help us on anythyng we needed, even when when the transport service we hired to get back to mexico city arrived a day late and we had no money left to pay for a room of food. Nice place overall

I have seen many hostels all over the world and I know how hostels are and that they are not the cleanest places but the price is what counts, right?!
However, I was in the Shalom in low season, the girl at the reception apparently just came out of hiberation and there were not many human guests present. I had a cockroach sitting in my bed and a scorpion under my backpack the next morning. The crap in the corner didnt even bother me... through the thunderstorm at night, we had puddles all over the room the next morning (beside the fact that water was leaking from the sink as well).
I stayed in hostels for the same or a better price and slept way better and only the fact that one can reach a beach in walking distance would not make me stay there again; Zicatela is on the other side if town.

Nice hostel with main building and some bungalows, also camping available I think. All clean.
They have a swimming pool, but no one's using it, as it's 200 meters to a great beach called Carrizalillo (but long stairs to come back after swimming). It's ideal if you'd like to swim or try some surfing: the guys from the 'yellow tower' give surf lessons and are always there to chat. The waves are good for beginners: there are some, but not as big as the "Mexican Pipeline" on big beach Zicatela.

Walking distance to city center and market, places like La Punta are quite far, but colectivo taxis are cheap.

From the staff there was one very friendly girl and some rather rude/bored people.

Unfortunately no internet/breakfast included.
But rates are cheap, I paid 100 Peso/night for a single room (off season), with a fan in the room (it's very hot in Puerto Escondido).

Actually a very good hostel, but it can be boring when you're a solo traveller (the first few days I was the only guest, later joined by two others).
