Overall I didn't enjoy my experience here. The place was dirty, the fridge was filthy and full of people's food. Maybe the mosquito problem is a problem with the area and not this specific hostel, I'm not sure, but once it was dark out, they...More

We really liked staying here. We extended our stay when we arrived. The location is great - just a two minute walk from a nice beach. Small market for groceries and restaurants nearby. Good kitchen in the hostel so cooking is an option. The dorm...More

With it's cozy bohemian vibe, the newly designed Pacific Buddha will easily become your home away from home. We're located in the heart of La Punta, 30 meters to the beach and a stones throw to the local ...More shops and restaurants. With over 15 years combined backpacking experience, we are happily focused on creating a place for backpackers to feel at home. We're puposely smaller than most allowing for an environment where everyone comes together, and our specialty decorations give an uplifting feeling to all who walk through the doors. Our colorful garden offers a few chill out areas and the kitchen area is big and clean, as are our bathrooms and showers. We organize tours, surf classes, English/Spanish lessons, horseback riding and yoga. Our property is on calle Nuevo Leon, the second street back from the water. All the local shops and restaurants are literally only a 30 second walk away!!! The vibe of La Punta is much more relaxed than that of the more toursity (and expensive) Zicatela and the point break here in La Punta offers various levels of surf, from beginner to world class. All rooms have quality fans and mattress' with wifi throughout. Our dorm fits 8 comfortably with hotel quality matress' and sufficient electrical outlets for all. The Pacific Buddha style if far from ordinairy and we're always open to new ideas for enhancing our vibe. Less
