Great swimming beaches with shuttle service
Our location is right between the city center & Puerto Escondido’s only four safe swimming beaches. Playa Carizalillo, Playa Coral, Puerto Angelito & Playa Manzanillo can be reached in 12-20 minutes walk from the hostel.
For the convenience of our guests we offer a free daily shuttle service to these three beaches at 11 am.
Playa Carizalillo is suited also well for surfers at beginners and advanced levels, we are happy to help you with board rentals and surf lessons. The romantic bay is as well the perfect spot for snorkeling (you can rent snorkel equipment with us). It’s perfect for anybody who's after a relaxed Mexican beach atmosphere with crystal clear water and nice little local food places.
Playa Coral is the wildest and cutest beach in town : You won't find any restaurants and only few people get there. It is also the best beach for sunset sessions.
Puerto Angelito & Playa Manzanillo are connected to each other. You will find the best restaurants for fresh fish & seafood.
Rich and cheap food
The local Benito Juarez Market with its lively Mexican atmosphere is just 850 meters (10 minutes) up the road. It offers authentic Mexican food and freshly made juices as well as flowers, handicrafts and souvenirs.
The perfect shopping place for people on a small budget or on self-catering holidays!
Around the hostel there’s a variety of very good cheap restaurants, local food & cafés.
We are also close from the best taquerias in town! And also the cheapest (5 tacos for 35 pesos)!
The prices are significantly lower than on the touristy Zicatela beach.
Social melting pot & nightlife
The hostel is designed to be a social meeting point and offers a wide variety of amenities for your entertainment. These include a large barbecue area, games area with pool table, foosball table and a wheel of fortune at the bar. Our poolside bar serves hand shaken cocktails for a backpacker's budget.
The area where we are located is very safe and quiet at night.
There's a lot of nightlife in Puerto Escondido. Most of the bars and clubs are located in Zicatela.
The taxi ride to those places costs between 40 & 50 pesos and taxis are really easy to find.
