Malinalli's hostel is wonderful! My husband and I loved our stay. It's in a really good location, 5 min walk from the beach and downtown Zihua. The hostel has a lovely garden with loads of plants and trees and wildlife. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Malinalli herself is a great host, super welcoming, generous, and kind. She made...

I have been traveling almost non stop for the last 20 years in 4 continents. To find a place where you feel welcome and home is a bit hard sometimes. But el rincon was exactly that! A haven with a wonderful garden and a relaxed atmosphere. Clean, comfy and full of beautiful nature. Cheap and near the beach. In fact...

If like me, you are more interested in atmosphere and being welcomed not as a guest but a family member, then this is the place for you! Mali, the owner is the most beautiful creature I've ever met with her Mexican magic and openess you feel extremely welcomed. She is very helpful for tourist information as well (and knows a...

I've been here a few years ago and came back this year...what to say? If before it was a bit dirty now it's very dirty and completely abandoned and the most funny thin is that it looks like the owner is not interested in it at all. Dorms are small and dirty, one of them doesn't even have a wall,...

This is a magical place where magical things happen: spontaneous jam sessions, unforgettable communal dinners, friendships that last a lifetime. Every time I come here I'm struck by the feeling that there's just something special about this place and the people it attracts. The garden is so peaceful. Relax in a hammock, listen to music, have a smoothie at the...

This is a lovely place. We arrived unannounced quite early in the morning and Mali was warm and welcoming, offered us coffee and welcomed us into this beautiful colourful sanctuary. I had a great time playing my guitar and hanging out in the lovely shady garden. I am really grateful I found this place. There are private rooms and dorms,...

The owner of the hostal Mali was very kind to me and showed me around the local sights of zihua. Initially I had planned to stay only a couple of nights but the relaxed atmosphere of jungle like garden meant I ended up staying over a week and returned on my way back. The wifi here is quite fast and...

I only stayed one night and had to leave ASAP. I have stayed in many hostels and Rincon is one I could only recommend if nothing else is available. Mali had just returned from a trip and explained how dirty everything was upon her return. To me, it still was. The 'amazing' garden needed work, the kitchen did not have...

I really enjoyed the first two days so as long as you only cook before 10pm and don't stay more than two nights this hostal is good in a pinch! I find the room cost doesn't match the value of the rooms! I never had my bathroom cleaned in the dorm space for the whole week I was there, I...

“The dorms are being refurbished. Until that effort is complete, it's better to stay in a private room.”
