Bonobo Headquarter


Alice is a 33 years old german-hungarian girl, that lives in mexico since 2008.

She opened up a Hostal in Mazunte 

"LA ISLA" in the year 2011.


After 5 years in Mazunte she moved to Puerto Escondido and opened up her new project - Bonobo Surf House.


A fresh and young place with a lot of service experience.


Alice is the soul of the ideas around here.  She has a contagious laugh and energy about her. No matter how little sleep she may have had, or something she may be stressed about, you would never be able to tell, she is always smiling  She is probably one of the friendliest and generous people you will ever meet.  Never complains, always finds the positive or humorous side to things.  She always has an entertaining story to tell too. 


But all jokes aside, she has put a lot of time and effort into the hostal to make it as good as it is today, she is always open to new suggestions or ideas about the place, and treats the staff here like family.    - the STAFF
