A wonderful restaurant and hostel in the heart of Puerto Escondido's most authentic area. Mario the owner will personally ensure that your time in Puerto is unforgettable, bestowing upon his guests the wealth of knowledge he has gained over the last several decades. Highly recommend.

This place for the money is the best your gunna get in Puerto Escondido. It's more of a hotel but without hotel prices. The location is right on the end of the Main Street which sits you in between town and Zicatela beach. The owner is friendly and fare and they have a good Italian restaurant in front. I would...

There was only one working PowerPoint in a room for four people.

Let me say firstly that the city is great. The beach is pretty small, and there are lots of fun and charming places to eat or drink around there. The neighborhood is right by the main beach, so that is good. The owner also was very nice. We ate in his restaurant and he empathized with us about the horrible... More

Great Value place to stay, right near the beach and main strip. Rooms are a decent size, owners are super freindly and welcolming, If your looking for some great Italian food, head next door, their Spaghetti bolognaise is one of the best I've had!

The rooms are very basic, no extras at all. The bed was a little soft at one side and the fan was a bit noisy. Good value for money though. For great food, especially fish dishes, go to nearby restaurant Pascale! We went there three times and every time it was amazing.

Super friendly father and son duo running this hotel/hostel/Italian restaurant. Very conveniently located to the main part of Puerto Escondido, restaurants and port side beach. About a 20 minute walk to Zicatela...so not ideal for surfers! We stayed one night in a private double - and we're upgraded due to them renovating the front stairs (it was low season). The... More

Staff were attentive, friendly and helpful. Our room was basic, old and tired but kept very clean. It was fine for what we needed. The location is pretty good too. I would stay here again if on a budget.
