Stayed here for about a week and loved it! It's located a few mins walk to Carrazillio beach - the only swimming beach in Puerto Escondido. The beach is gorgeous!
The hostel itself has massive light airy rooms fitted with bunks that have large COMFORTABLE mattresses. I slept very well the week I stayed here. It has a large kitchen with self catering facilities. Downstairs is a computer for guest use and there is free wifi.
The hostel is also close to Spanish language and surfing schools. It is about 20 pesos in a taxi to Zicatela where most of the clubs and bars are (although you should expect to pay a bit more on the way back if you are leaving at 5am!).
The highlights of the hostel itself would probably be the pool and the rooftop hammock area where you can see gorgeous sunsets. The highlight of the location would be Carrazillio beach!
They also offer some tasty home-style dinners cooked by a resident chef.
Ross (the owner) was incredibly helpful with sound knowledge of the area and a few handy travel hints for onwards destinations.
I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone! Some friends I met along my travels stayed at other local hostels which they regretted as soon as they discover this place.
There are still a few improvements being made to the hostel and I can't wait to come back and see how it's evolved!
