Went here for only one night. The hostel is located close to Carizallilo beach and just around the corner to a couple of restaurants in Rinconada.

The hostel seem very new and is very clean. The breakfast included consist of batter to make your own pancakes. The beds are probably the most comfortable I've had traveling around in Latin America the past 4 months. Friendly crowd, pretty young though. Super friendly and helpful staff

I would definitely recommend this hostel and go here again.

Volunteered at this hostel for a month through workaway and couldn't have made a better decision ! The owner is an amazing guy - an American who fell in love with puerto escondido ! Hostel is super laid back and has a pool plus poolside beers ! There are hammocks on the rooftop with a view of the sea .. They help you book tours for dolphin watching .. Surf lessons and also trips for the glowing phytoplankton lagoon "life of pi" effect ! Location can't be better with a 10 min walk to the beginner surfer beach playa carrizallello .

Vivo Escondido was undoubtedly one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at, if not the best. My friends and I (a group of four) booked one night and ended up staying for 2 and a half weeks and would of stayed longer if we didn't have flights booked back to Australia. Vivo felt like a home away from home; it is kept wonderfully clean and has fantastic amenities (pool, table tennis table, numerous hang out areas, great bathrooms and spacious dorms, lovely terrace, the list goes on). The location is unparalleled: a 1 minute walk to Playa Carrizallilo (a beautiful beach) and the main street which has great restaurants and shops. The staff are the loveliest people and take pride in ensuring Vivo runs efficiently, but also making you feel like you have come home at the end of the day.

If you are coming to Puerto Escondido (which is also an absolute must go in Mexico), Vivo needs to be your very first port of call. I cannot recommend this hostel highly enough. You will feel like you have come home.

Room tip: 6 bed dorm is the best

Fantastic place. I'm 50 and my husband is 57, we didn't feel out of place here even though they were all a lot younger than us. We were made to feel so welcome by staff and other guests. Extremely clean, no loud music or drinking after 11pm, you have to go.into.town if you want to drink after this time.
Would definitely go back to this place. Loads of restaurants within a 2 minute walk. Close to 2 beaches. Shop that sells cheap beer and provides outdoor seating for.You to.drink.it and watch tv outside, like a cheap bar. Haha.
In. Quiet place, residential.area away from the tourist hotels and shops.
Perfect
