Party Hostels in Sayulita
As far as party hostels in Sayulita go, there aren’t any! Yet, that’s not to say that the hostels here aren’t sociable. Basically, we didn’t come across any place that advertises itself as a party hostel.
We recommend picking a social hostel such as Selina Sayulita and then going into the village during the evening.
There are plenty of trendy bars in the main square area and this way you can return home to a quiet dorm room and get good sleep.
Plus, Selina has a really cool bar on site called Casa Jaguar. This is where you can start the evening and get to know some people before heading into town.
