We had 10 hrs in the air before we arrived in Mexico City to jump straight on a 14hr overnight bus to Puerto Escondido... Needless to say we were hoping we'd picked a good place to stay - after 5 great nights I think we picked the best! The hostel is new and kept very clean, there's lots of friendly staff and the hostel itself is very cool (if you stay here make sure you climb up the man made tower to check out the view of Zicatella beach - telescope provided.) we stayed in a private room, all of them have been painted and have a fan. The food at the hostel is delicious, all very fresh and healthy... Great if you need a break from the greasy enchilada (if not then there's a shop across the road that does Mexican.) The area itself was perfect for us, the south end of Zicatella you can swim in the water, still a few waves to bodysurf etc... Also some great waves to learn on. We had some other friends staying in Zicatella and we went to party down there with them as this is where most of the bars are... Only 30 pesos in a taxi. Highly recommend this hostel - we would definitely go back there again!
