San Pancho lacks accommodation in peak season so we stayed here. We paid $75 a night for a room here and actually it was pretty good. We had a room at the end of the hallway which had a little balcony. Maybe this is the premium room but it's worth getting it for the extra light and space. The bedrooms...

Way better than you'd expect from a typical hostel, especially the rooms upstairs. Peaceful atmosphere and the staff are very helpful and friendly. Only a 10-minute walk to the beach off the main road.

Stayed almost a week at San Pancho hostal. Our room was great, the crew is the coolest in town, breakfasts are great and simple and we got to meet lots of nice people. And on top of that they offer trips to Islas Marietas, which is not to be missed, while in the area. We'll be back at Hostal San...

We booked late and ended up with a room with no window to the outside (only to a hallway), a noisy fan, and a stinky backed-up bathroom. All of this could have been tolerated if the price of the room was reflective. We paid 700 pesos a night, which was actually one of the most expensive rooms we paid for...

We stayed at Hostal San Pancho after staying at their Puerto Vallarta Hostel. We had the opportunity to be in two different rooms, and they gave us the second room at the same lower rate as the smaller private room we stayed in, as we agreed we would only use one of the beds. The staff were very helpful and...

Room was cute and clean. Site said 5 minute walk to beach but was actually about 15 at a quick pace. We stayed for 3 nights and literally got no sleep. There was a rooster living right outside our room that went all night long and the doors to our balcony acted more like curtains. They weren't actually sealed doors....

As pretty much the first hostel in my trip of Mexico, it was a lovely and warm welcome. The living room is super cozy! So many interesting travellers came and went while I was there. The whole pl ace has a very unique and comfortable feeling, and from what I've heard, they're only going to extended it further. I completely...

We were 4 friends travelling and booked a room for us. (As an alternative there are some bunkbeds without a room,where people pass by to go to the bathroom) We had a great stay and I would totally recommend it!

Without notice, and late at night our large, rambunctious group was welcomed by Hostal San Pancho on two separate occasions. The rooms were clean and comfortable with all the amenities you could ask for. For a little extra money, you can stay in a romantic *AiR CONDiTiONED* room with a beautiful shower and a sweet balcony. Totally worth it! The...
