Casa Kraken Hostel

Our location cannot be beat! Kraken Hostel is located in between the church of Our Lady of Guadalupe and the main square (adjacent to the city hall). We are also a block away from the main area of the Malecón: the seahorse statue and the outdoor amphitheater (right next to Los Arcos). We are located in the heart of Vallarta's downtown, just a few minutes away from the main beach and a great variety of bars, art galleries, night clubs, restaurants. etc. We are an LGBTQ+ friendly hostel.

Hey there! We're a backpacker hostel located right in center of Puerto Vallarta. We like having fun! We like going on adventures during the day, and going for a night out on the town. We work hard and we play hard. We strive to make our place as clean and comfortable as possible, and love getting into projects and artwork. We host backpackers from all over the world, and we treasure the social time we spend with them

La experiencia en Casa kraken, no es que fuera mejor o peor, esque se convirtió en mi casa al poco tiempo de llegar, conocí a voluntarios que se convirtieron en mi familia, me divertí y aprendí cada segundo de mi estadía, y realmente escribo este comentario con cariño a este lugar, espero que siga siendo como es el mejor hostel de Vallarta y os pido que me cuideis a mi Adela y a mi queridísimo bar!!

Casa Kraken es el mejor lugar para hacer voluntariado en Puerto Vallarta, todo el equipo es buena onda, si tienes dudas o preguntas ellos siempre están al pendiente de ayudar. Gracias por la paciencia, el cariño y hacerme sentir parte de su casa. Mil gracias a doña Adela por las risas y las correcciones, lo valoro mucho! ❤️ Me senti muy cómoda con todos y es una pena poder irme pero los llevo en mi corazón! Que siga creciendo la familia Kraken! Abrazos y mucho amor!

Fue de las mejores experiencias en hostales que he tenido, llegue de urgencia por una muy mala experiencia que había teniendo en un voluntariado en sayulita y no pudo ser mejor este hostal. Mas que un hostal, se convirtió en una familia. La dueña Adela es lo más simpática y linda persona que puede existir, también el manager Ed de las mejores personas que pude conocer. En resumen, recomiendo a 100 esta experiencia, lindo hostal, buena vibra, muy bien ubicado y hermoso. Los extraño <3

The good: the atmosphere is great because of the people there. I had a great time with my fellow volunteers and the owner Adela is very nice.
The bad:
1) the A/C is not allowed to be used most of the year; it gets extremely hot.
2) I stayed for a month and there was no functional microwave the whole time.
3) The bar did not have running water for most of my time as a bartender; there were also just about 8 cups for the whole bar
4) next to a church whose bells ring late at night and early in the morning

If these are things you don’t mind, I would recommend.

It has been such a wonderful experience, everything is as advertised in the post.

From the moment I arrived, I was greeted with warm smiles and friendly faces. The staff and other volunteers were incredibly welcoming, and I immediately felt at home.

The job itself is very basic and if you like to be independent and you’re organized you will love it as you manage the whole bar yourself, make sure there’s enough drink, make the special cocktail everyday.

The hostel itself is located in a wonderful location, very central and with stunning sunset and fireworks every night from the rooftop.
