“A wonderful place to rest.”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

I have been visiting this place for more than 10 years. The facility is perfect for people looking to make contact with nature. Zipolite is Magic. But, from Lo Cosmico, it is amazing. The place is own for a very nice family that is very nice and helpful to their guests. Lo Cosmico is visited by intelectuals, artists, friends, and nice people from all over the world that every year return to meet their close friends that share the taste of the delicious plates prepared by this family. If you are atracted by a multicultural environment, this is the right place to be. Lo Cosmico is acknowledge for the good service and respect to human beings from any kind of language, culture, or sexual orientation. I strongly recommend this place. If you are fancy or trendy, probably you will not understand a nice place like this.

I recently returned from my 5th trip to Lo Cosmico in the last 5 years. The good feeling, hospitality and accommodation I experienced on my first trip prevails today and I am very grateful for that! Located at the western end of Zipolite, the cabanas and palapas of Lo Cosmico flow naturally over the landscape, far removed from the noise of the beach bars down the way. You might hear birds, the crash of the ocean surf only 80 meters away, or the soft laughter and conversation of friends and travelers on the cafe terrace...yes, there is also an amazing cafe at Lo Cosmico! Serving in the morning and afternoon such items as yoghurt, fresh fruit, mexican breakfast dishes and the most delicious crepes in all of Zipolite! And even better, the proprietors of Lo Cosmico, Antonio and Regula, are the most gracious of hosts one could ever ask for. You won't find air-con or t.v.'s at Lo Cosmico, but you will find a restful and tranquil place to enjoy the incredible beach of Zipolite!

Room Tip: Rooms nearer to the beach have a better breeze coming through.

First impression wasnt bad, the rooms are dirty but ok... showers/toilets are filthy. We had an option of staying a maximum of two nights. The beach was beautiful but it just rained non stop while we were there and there was nothing to do at all in the hostel and we were the only ones staying their. The guy who ran the joint was sleezy and wierd, didnt enjoy talking to him at all.

We ended up trying to check out at 12 (that is their checkout time) but couldnt find the guy anywhere, cos there isnt even a receptoin and no-one else speaks ANY english. So we sat with our bags packed in our room for two hours and when he finally woke up we checked out. He said that cos we checked out late we had to pay 200 pesos, and that was after barganing him down from 300. We just paid and left...

My recomendation is go stay somewhere more in the middle of the main street. You can get a private room for two or a shared dorm for the same price if not cheaper and in a better location. You have to walk 5-10min from Lo Cosmico hostel to be able to get good food.

PS. The food at the hostel very average, and they dont have shared dorm rooms so be prepared to fork out for a private room...

All persons there (owners and visitors) are very chilly and friendly. Breakfast ist good, bathrooms are good and the cabanas are really nice. Everything is open and it is just one minute to the beach! The beach is wonderful and there are good bars where you get tasty mojitos.
I want to come back again.

Lovely place - my boyfriend and I liked it so much we stayed there for twice as long as we planned! The cabanyas are very basic - beds with mosquito nets, table and chairs, hammock on balcony and shared (cold) shower and toilet, but they're so sunny and airy, and the view from the balcony is absolutely beautiful. The people who own the place are v friendly and laid back, and the beach (about 30 seconds away from the cabanyas) is lovely. Don't go here expecting luxury, but for the price you won't find anywhere better in Zipolite.
