    Description

    Hi,
    We are Tommy, Sheldon and Zach, 3 guys from England and Canada who bought a hostel in the Oaxacan surfers' paradise of Puerto Escondido. It's a big, colourful villa with a pool, in a quiet neighbourhood within walking distance of the beaches . The hostel offers an intimate atmosphere and attracts guests of all ages from all over the world, some of whom can end up staying for a long time or returning to stay with us.


    Because plans tend to change so often, especially on the road, please contact us within a week of your potential/desired arrival date, we have no idea who we will need a month from now.


    Please read on.

    Puerto Escondido is a VERY cool town. Surfing is definitely one of the most popular activities, but there's more to Puerto than just surfing. Go out on the open water for a fishing trip and return not only with fresh caught tuna, but also up close interactions with dolphins and turtles. Learn how to dance salsa or take Spanish lessons at one of the excellent language schools. Go deep sea diving, snorkeling, kayaking, whale spotting or simply relax on the beach and dance the night away in one of the many bars. You will not be stuck for activities during your stay in Puerto Escondido, that's for sure!

    The hostel is close to the best swimming beaches of Puerto Escondido and a 5 minute walk from the beginner/intermediate break at Playa Carrizalillo. We are just steps away from the Rinconada, which has a bunch of great restaurants ranging from Middle Eastern cuisine to seafood straight from the ocean, to pizza and even sushi. You can basically walk to anything that you need and taxis to nearby neighborhoods in Puerto Escondido cost only 40-50 pesos.
