The beach is perfect, the rooms fantastic. There is no restaurant on site, but a number of good ones a short walk away. You can grill for yourself in the outdoor kitchen. Memo is very generous with his boogie boards. No need to bring your...More

great place, beautifull beach, fantastic owners, the cutest dog on earth.....you don't wanne leave. However, like aparker 1952 stated before, if you like luxury (television, restaurant etc.) and service people cleaning all the time, than this place is maybe not for you. We loved it...More
We also loved Bambu, for all the same reasons listed by everyone else. It's a very informal place and probably not for you if you like a lot of staff and service people floating around waiting on you, but my husband and I are informal...More
We found Bambu 5 years ago and have dreamed about coming back ever since. Finally made it back (fly to Huatulco from Oaxaca if you can) and were so glad we chose Bambu again! Memo and Miguel were so accommodating and always good for a...More

It is not a hostel; I'm not sure I have more to add than my original review. I don't know what your concerns are re: "hostel versus hotel." The rooms are private, with private baths. It is not fancy. The clientele is diverse; some young folks who cooked in the communal kitchen. You can't really buy groceries in this town. We ate all meals out - there are maybe 6 or 7 restaurants; we are content with fish and ceviche every night on a mexican beach vacation. You don't need a recommendation - it is a tiny town and you can get the lay of the land quickly. We had ceviche on the beach every day for 3 days at a place I can't remember that Bambu's owner recommended, and there are adequate breakfast places. We don't bother with pizza in mexico but it is there.
In terms of accomodations I would reiterate that there is no hot water - that was my main problem. I don't care about a pool but I like a hot shower. But I survived. We never left San Augustinillo but you could easily take a taxi to Zipolite.
