Hadn't booked in advance and was lucky that they had room for me in the end. I arrived in a huge thunderstorm that went on and off for a couple of days, but still really enjoyed those days hanging out with other travellers at La Isla. Stayed upstairs in the large dorm room. Some of the beds are just mattresses...

I didn't actually get a chance to stay at the hotel because they didn't let me in with my friend and her 7 year old son! I called in advance and being a low season they said that they had almost all the rooms available but I didn't mention we were travelling with a kid, when we arrived the next...

The people working here make la Isla the amazingly chilled and family like atmosphere!!! It becomes home very quickly. Clean beds, showers and toilets, great food nights and warm and soft sand!! Family diners are excellent, caro's juices mindblowing and all the animals the cutest ever

This is the most special place I've been to, right by the beach. You can't beat the price, even for a private room, which is what we had. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, our room was very cozy and clean, and you get a free continental breakfast; they buy their coffee in town, and it's some of the...

We like to travel light and not to leave a big footprint. So I am glad we couldn't find the place we were looking for and ended up at La Isla. Wonderful crew, interesting people from all over the world, simple, clean and well kept facilities and of course the wonderful location at the beach in Mazunte. We found a...

After spending some time in mexican cities, nothing could feel better than La isla hostel. Located directly on the beach of a tiny town, the sound of waves is the only thing you can hear at nights. Hostel owners are very easy going and friendly. There are several cats and dogs to keep you company besides an amazing bunch of...

Stayed in the dorm. Perfected located in one of the most amazing places in Mexico. Hostel was full of interesting individuals from all over the world. Everyone working there makes you feel like you're home. BRING BUG SPRAY! Mosquito nets had holes everywhere.

We have stayed here a couple of times, the first time was in 2014, that's when the the "new" owners, Martin and Emilia had just gotten the place. We stayed for more than a month, it was amazing! The atmosphere, the beach, the town, the people...everything!! Martin and Emilia are the most awesome owners of a hostel/hotel/campground we have met...

I stayed at Hostel La Isla for over a month. After having spent some time in the mountains all I wanted was a beautiful beach, some cool waves and too meet some great people. Hostel La Isla supplied me with all those things. They have dorms, privates and camping so you get a good mix of people and the family...

Undoubtedly the most magical and relaxing place you'll find in Mazunte. I took a yoga retreat last year in October in Mazunte and stayed on La Isla for a month. First didn´t know what to expect .. the result?... a great stay!! Martin, Angy, Mario and Ximena made my stay the best!! ... I always felt comfortable and at home....
