“Jungle by the beach”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

The hostel is nestled between beach towns; La Punta and Zicatella. Although only 5 minuets from both, you are left with a more secluded stay off the main drag. The little wooden cabins are surrounded by the well looked after lush green gardens.
Even if you decide not to stay at the hostel I 100% recommend joining the staff and guests for 'family dinner'. Facebook or pop by before 5 (mon-sat) to let the staff know you'd like to eat the best vegan meal of your life. I'm a carnivore and I savored every dinner I are there for 30 days.

Stay here for a mixture of hammock reading and mezcal fueled nights out. You won't regret it.

it's not a myth, nor a legend, it's true, ppl tend to stay longer then they planned! When you arrive first time in Puerto, on foot its not easy to find without good instructions. it's not a town center hostal, just ask a cab to save the trip. But when you arrive... holy Mari of Posa!!! they have shady hammocks around, cool beers, great food, friendly staff with their own state of mind, a backgammon board wich is daily played till you drop, or ask for the pig game. its not a real party hostel, but athmosphere is great! nice music, dancing, or whatever you like :) bar closes before 12. they offer open paycheck, so no grabbing for money all the time, prices are fair, just dont get crazy too much :) Dorms do are a little crampy, but beds are fine. they are equiped with mosquito nets, wich are sufficient for the nights to stay safe. i only sprayed some bugspray to prevent to many bites (and dont worry too much about malaria etc...), the little ventilator can be a little noisy for a good night. showers are fine, just no warm water, wich is mostly fine due to the heat... also dont miss the rooftop in the night to see the stairs, take the stairs next to the toilets. The only down side of this Paradise is that there is no kitchen. But if you're not on the uberlow budget, some very nice and good priced restaurants, juice shops,... Surf lessons can be asked in the hostel. its nice to surf in la punta, but it might be a little crowded there....
Just get there, you will never regret!!!!

Rustic but clean, very relaxed hostel atmosphere. Staff extremely friendly & accomodating. It is a few minutes to the beach, 10 minute walk to the couple bars & restaurants in Punta,easy transport to anywhere else available up the hill and around the corner. As noted they do observe quiet hours which is good. Definitely would visit again.

The shared dorm rooms are a bit cramped but the food, hammocks and proximity to the beach well made up for it. The central common area creates a great social atmosphere and the mezcal helps as well. Vegetarian options are often hard to come by so those looking for a little green in their diet will be completely satisfied.

I got in Puerto Escondido travelling from Lake Atitlan in Guatemala at around 11am. After almost 30 hours travelling, I was welcomed by David and Silvia with a big smile, with a well decorated, clean simple place on the background: a nice common area, a restaurant (my first meal was "Chilaquiles en salsa roja" -- INCREIBLE!), hammocks, clean and spacious toilets and showers with large mirrors. The rooms are big enough to keep your stuff, very simple and cozy: mosquito nets, fans and hooks.. it is about all you might need, specially being only two blocks from the beach! The mezcal bar was the reason I decided to come here, and I wasn't disappointed: a good variety of "mezcales artesanales", some made in the hostel by the stuff (cinnamon flavoured mezcal is a fantastic medicine!). The location is perfect, 20 minutes walk from the over populated Zicatela and only few minutes from La Punta. Coletivos into town are cheap and taxis too. I definitely recommend this place!

the hostel is nice but i wouldn't call it a botiqe hotel. the cabins are very basic, plenty of mosquitos with no proper mosquito net. also the toilets are located far from the rooms. the place could have been nice if it was cheaper but you can get so much more value for your money in zicatela beach.

I came to visit Osa Mariposa Hostel with my friend days ago and Jade welcomed us with a big smile even she was busy.
The peaceful and nice atmosphere are combined with a beautiful garden.
Vegetarian and homemade food are so tasty too or you can order a cold drink.
The owner Dan is very friendly as well
Thanks for your hospitality! and see you around amigos
Cheers

Room Tip: private cabins are much better
