My wife and I stayed 3 days/nights at Bambu and loved every second of it. It's at the edge of the town, which means that it's farthest from any semblance of a crowd. The rooms are very simple/bare bones (which we prefer), and ours was...More
Simple, affordable, beautiful. Nice soft clean sheets. Views of the sea from you pillow. And a fully equipped kitchen where you can prepare the fresh fish you can catch with the fisherman who give daily tours for little money. Bilingual owner-operated. Great for families and...More
Bambu was the best surprise we had in our vacations! The place amazing, de "cabañas" super nice and clean. Memo (the owner) is an incredible person, we felt at home, in family! we were supposed to stayed 1 night, we stayed 4 nights. Highly recommend...More
We a perfect stay at Bambu over New Years. The bungalows were clean, the views amazing, and everyone extremely helpful and friendly. While not high on frills, if you're high maintenance you're probably in the wrong part of the world. Can't wait to come back...More
We arrived in middle season (this area seems to be popular with Europeans during what is low season for Mexicans and other N. Americans) and got a great deal on an ocean-view cabana right on the beach.
Our "family" is our 2 puppies, and we...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.
