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

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

We are travelling to Oaxaca this Nov and are thinking of staying at Bambu in a 1st floor room; looks like it may be cooler than the ground floor rooms with the options of opening the doors at night while you sleep. We have been enchanted by its rustic charm, quiet and oh so beautiful beach and excellent reviews, but we're a little worried it might be more like a hostel/backpackers than a hotel. Is this the case or am I overthinking it? We were also looking at some of the other hotels nearby that had a pool. Did anyone miss having a swimming pool to dip in after a day on the beach? Lastly, can anyone recommend any places to eat near by? From looking at a map it looks like there are more food options in Zipolite, is this easy to walk to or are there enough places in San Agustinillo to satisfy drink and dinner options throughout the day? We've opted for San Agustinillo instead of Zipolite as a base as it's quieter and looks like it might be better for swimming. Be good to hear your thoughts! Thanks so much!

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... More
