Camping, dorms and cabanas on the beach. Ocean lovers will go crazy at the pelican feeding frenzy in the mornings. It's a crowded surf spot, so get out there early. Great for solo travellers, always lots of people around.

We ended up staying longer than expected! Beautiful little cabanas on the beach with a shared kitchen and bathroom. The owners are amazing and know everyone in their hostel (even your name) because they actually care about who comes to their hostel. Great location near restaurants and stores as well as the surfspots. La punta is a 5min walk and...

Really liked staying at the cabanas. Little place owned by two french brothers. Super simple little house with 1 bed, 1 fan and 1 light. Communal bathroom and toilets, clean and well maintained. There is also a kitchen available. The location is amazing, right on the beach. Good vibes during the stay, every body is friendly and helpful. I would...

We stayed at Buena Onda for only one night as it was extremely popular and fully booked the following night. The cabañas are amazing! They are set out on the sand, surrounded by palm trees and immaculate gardens. Well groomed sand paths lead to the shared kitchen and bathroom areas, with a common area down by the beach. Bring insect...

We booked in advance one cabana and when we got there there was none available so they gave us a room inside the main building. The room was noisy and too warm. The following day they transferred us to a cabana and it was much better (or at least, what we expected). Maybe too much "buena onda" results in the...

My family and I stayed at Buena Onda for two weeks in November, 2012. We had previously known the owners from a while back having them visit us in Guatemala, so the minute my father and soon-to-be-wife decided they wanted to get married in Puerto Escondido, we had no doubt to stay at Buena Onda. Upon arrival my brother and...

One of the staff was extremely rude to me because he was in a bad mood and all I asked him was whether I could use a kitchen which was next to the reception (the one for guests is much smaller and a little dirty). I also heard that a couple other guests has used that kitchen the day before...

“Bungalows/cabins over dorms.”

“Dont bother about making a reservation. Already in 2010 we tried to reserve (from Mexico city, because a fellow traveller told us we must go) but did not get a reply. Just come and in worst case, pay a few bucks for a spot in one of the hammocks. Its worth staying, once you wake up in thay paradise in the morning! !”
