Arriving at the coast from the mountains, our van spit us out, a bit dizzy, from the ride from Oaxaca City.

This place is perfect. We had planned to stay a couple days and then travel a little more around Oaxaca. Not only did we not want to leave San Agustinillo we didn't want to leave Bambu! It doesn't get much better than this, so we...More
The setting is perfect for relaxation; shade when needed, sun when wanted, and ocean breezes. Bambu is a small hotel with friendly staff. We had a second floor room and absolutely loved it! We slept with the balcony doors open and were wooed to sleep...More
This place is just perfect! The cabins are spacious, beds are comfortable, safety box, very clean, mosquito net, plenty room to store your things, and our bedroom had a good size balcony. There is a functioning communal kitchen and plenty of space to seat on...More

It is not a hostel; I'm not sure I have more to add than my original review. I don't know what your concerns are re: "hostel versus hotel." The rooms are private, with private baths. It is not fancy. The clientele is diverse; some young folks who cooked in the communal kitchen. You can't really buy groceries in this town. We ate all meals out - there are maybe 6 or 7 restaurants; we are content with fish and ceviche every night on a mexican beach vacation. You don't need a recommendation - it is a tiny town and you can get the lay of the land quickly. We had ceviche on the beach every day for 3 days at a place I can't remember that Bambu's owner recommended, and there are adequate breakfast places. We don't bother with pizza in mexico but it is there.
In terms of accomodations I would reiterate that there is no hot water - that was my main problem. I don't care about a pool but I like a hot shower. But I survived. We never left San Augustinillo but you could easily take a taxi to Zipolite.
