your hostal home.


about Hostal Alma Turquesa.

Welcome to your friendly hostal home in the laid-back beach town of Mazunte, Mexico.  A small slice of paradise perfect for chilling in a hammock or making friends on the road while you fall asleep to the sound of the waves crashing every night. Located around the corner from the main beach and one street over from the town center, you’re never far from a swim in the ocean or a bite to eat in the thriving dining and foodie scene. Our concept was designed with travelers and backpackers in mind, so we aim to cultivate a chill vibe in a tropical setting where you can easily find community, cook together in our shared kitchen, hang in our common areas, work online with our Starlink internet, or feel inspired to write or make art while checking out our many eclectic murals painted by traveling artists. We do our best to respect the environment and rural nature of Mazunte by applying eco-filtration systems for our residual waters, using water-saving toilets, and separating all recycling and compost waste. As for what to do while you’re here, we have all the best tips: from snorkeling, skimboard, SUP, whale-watching tours, the sunset spots of Punta Cometa & Mermejita, yoga, circus, or wellness classes, ecstatic dance, nightlife, or just where to go for cold chelas and coconuts on the beach. Reserve your spot with us in either our shared dorm or private room options and take advantage of the best atmosphere to enjoy your Mazunte experience!


about Mazunte.

Mazunte is a small, boho beach town with the laid-back vibe of Oaxaca’s pacific coast, perfect for nature-lovers and travelers who want to experience gorgeous beaches without the big crowds and tourist traps. Just enough off the beaten path to make it still feel like a best-kept secret, Mazunte has crystal-clear turquoise waters, an eclectic artistic scene, great local and international cuisine, and a safe, welcoming atmosphere that can be walked in just a few streets–barefoot if you’d like. While there’s plenty to do here, it’s also the perfect place to just lay in a hammock and recharge while enjoying the slower pace of this tiny town. An unmissable to-do is the walk up the cliffs for the stunning sunsets of Punta Cometa, one of the best views in all of Oaxaca. Of course you can swim and snorkel in the waves of the bay, tap into the thriving wellness community, and enjoy a wide variety of amazing spots to eat, drink, and dance to live music. Most travelers end up extending their stay here, and we can’t wait for you to come check it for yourself.

"Probably the best hostel I've been in Mexico. Alisha, Pablo, their very cute son and the volunteers made me feel very much at home. It's not a big or a party hostel nor does it have the most luxurious dorms. It is such a nice place to relax and to meet people with an amazing atmosphere. Very close to the beach."
