5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013

This is a pretty great place to stay! Perfect location right on zicatela, close to surf, bars and nightlife. The hostel has a really nice courtyard for socialising as well as a kitchen and common area over looking the water. The staff speak English and Spanish and are super helpful. 10/10

Had an awesome time at Pakololo! I stayed in the dorm rooms, they are pretty basic but really comfortable, warm vibe and at a price you cant beat in that location. The hostel offers everything you'll need: lovely people, good security, kitchen amenities and a lovely beachfront location. Staff are excellent, super helpful and multi-lingual. I miss the kitten already :)

I stayed several times at Pakololo years ago and i had a lot of fun...Now with new Managers in charge (Gaby) shes so sweet and friendly,always welcome you with a big smile.
The beer garten on the back is amazing (sandy floor)
If you coming down to the Mexican Pipeline stop by and crash here,they offer rooms,cabanas,dorms and apartments...you have to try the tasty food of their Argentinian chef (mixing flavors and recipes with mezcal)
Very safe and clean Hotel - Hostel....also they offer Mezcal Talks & Tastings with real local producers of this nacional drink (book now)
big hug & surfs up !!
Alberto

Room Tip: cabanas on the back are pretty quiet

We are a hotel and hostel 30 seconds from the beach with a range of options, from budget dorm beds to a self contained apartment. On the Pacific Coast of Oaxaca in Puerto Escondido, in front of world famous Zicatela Beach, you’ll find Casa Chicatana. We have options for every type of budget. - Shared Dorm with 14 beds and sea view terrace. - Semi Private Dorm with shared bathroom and sea view kitchen. - 9 Private Rooms with private bathroom for between 2-5 people, include access to a shared kitchen and sea view terrace. - If you’re travelling in a group, you could check out the PH apartment, with two bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, complete kitchen, dining room and terrace with spectacular ocean views. - We also have a new Garden House with 4 rooms located at the top of the garden behind the hostel with air conditioning, complete kitchen, huge terraces and a spectacular view of the Zicatela Surf. - Our restaurant has a delicious range of smoothies, juices, all day breakfasts, sandwiches, salads, tacos and burritos. In our garden we have a sweet little pool, table tennis, hammocks and a bar which offers a selection of mezcal, and of course, cold beer and good music. We want your time with us to be a memorable one. Our team is on hand to help 24/7 and we have security cameras for everybody’s peace of mind. Casa Chicatana are located right in front of the sea towards the north end of Zicatela Beach, super close to all the best restaurants and bars but far enough away to be able to get a decent night’s sleep for those wanting to catch the early morning waves. We’re around 30 minutes on foot from the city center or $25 pesos by taxi.
 Zicatela Beach is enormous and beautiful but the other beaches nearby are lovely too. La Punta is perfect for beginners to mid-level surfers and Carrizalillo is a paradise for complete beginners and a good option for swimming or just playing in the waves. You can reach these nearby beaches in taxi for around 30 pesos. ... more   less
