Hostal One Love

Hotel, hostel in Puerto Escondido

The big dilemma at One Love is whether to stay in the John Lennon room or the Jim Morrison suite or, if you’re feeling a little more bluesy, the habitación de Janis Joplin. Classier than many of the hippie joints in La Punta, One Love is a high-walled wonderfully private domain packed with lush ferns and music legends.

The circular rooms are decorated with art and photos of the peace-loving rock heroes they are named after and are exceedingly comfortable. Bonus: there’s an excellent restaurant on site that generously accepts nonguests.
