🌟Rating: 8.9/10 |📍 Sector/Area: Sector H/Downtown | 🏨 View on Booking.com

❄️A/C: ✅ | 🐶Pet Friendly: | Pool 🚫 | 🥞Breakfast Included 🚫

Huatulco’s premiere hostel, Hostal Azul y Blanco is well-loved by travellers to Huatulco looking for low-cost accommodations. I love that it is so close to downtown, but on a side street so you can still get a good sleep. They offer both dorm rooms and private rooms, so there is something for all budgets.

Comfortable beds, great kitchen, lovely rooftop for chilling out and friendly staff

#9 OYO Hotel Betsua Vista Hermoso

🌟Rating: 7.5/10 |📍 Sector/Area: Sector I | 🏨 View on Booking.com

❄️A/C: ✅ | 🐶Pet Friendly: 🚫 | Pool  | 🥞Breakfast Included 🚫

I love the location of OYO Hotel Betsua Vista Hermoso, tucked away at the edge of downtown this cheap little hotel in Huatulco is quiet, has a pool, and yet is only steps away from all the action of the core, like many of Huatulco’s best restaurants and bars.


Location is great, a short walk separates the hotel from a lot of restaurants, bars and public transportation. The room was ok, we got what we paid for, which in my opinion was a very good deal. I would definitely come back.

As Jorge mentioned in his review, there are a lot of great transportation options from downtown to the other sectors of Huatulco and the beaches. I explain all of Huatulco’s transportation secrets in How to Travel in Huatulco – Mexican Transportation Explained.


#10 Casa Shaguibá

🌟Rating: 7.5/10 |📍 Sector/Area: Downtown | 🏨 View on Booking.com

❄️A/C: ✅ | 🐶Pet Friendly: ✅ | Pool 🚫 | 🥞Breakfast Included 🚫

I love recommending Casa Shaguibá because of its awesome location right in the core of downtown La Crucecita. While it is missing some amenities, you probably won’t mind because everything you possibly need is right outside the front door!

We super loved our stay [in Casa Shaguibá] – we had the rooftop cabin and we were super happy there – the place is simple and old but definitely has charm”

🌟Rating: 9.3/10 |📍 Sector/Area: Sector R/Chahue | 🏨 View on Booking.com

❄️A/C: ✅ | 🐶Pet Friendly: ✅ | Pool 🚫 | 🥞Breakfast Included 🚫

Just over the $50/night mark but too good a deal not to include it in this listing is Hotels & Condominios Jaroje. Rated an incredible 9.3/10, some rooms even include a little kitchenette to help you lower your dining out costs (although with the amazing and cheap street food in Huatulco, who needs to cook!?)

Check in was easy. The staff was very kind and helpful and attentive. The pool was amazing and refreshing. My family loved our stay, overall it was the best stay in Huatulco!

Departamento Anel

🌟Rating: 10/10 |📍 Sector/Area: Sector U | 🏨 View on Booking.com

❄️A/C: ✅ | 🐶Pet Friendly: 🚫 | Pool 🚫 | 🥞Breakfast Included 🚫

Sector U is a proper Mexican neighbourhood in Huatulco. It’s a little further from the centre, so its more affordable both for tourists and residents alike. This apartment has fabulous reviews, thanks to a great host. I have a friend that stayed nearby and still found the area very walkable! Departamento Angel is a great low-budget apartment rental option in Huatulco.

The accommodation and the host are totally amazing… the apartment was totally clean and very nice, choosing this apartment for my vacation was one of the best decisions we could have made! Totally recommend it as well as the host made me some sightseeing recommendations so I could know Huatulco, excellent host! Thanks to that we were able to enjoy more of our stay, and also offered tour tours which was an excellent option as we were able to visit many places in Huatulco and its surroundings!!!

🔍 How to Find Budget-Friendly Hotels in Huatulco

The best booking software to find cheap hotel in Huatulco, and in Mexico in general is is Booking.com. I find Booking has more properties than any other platform ranging from hotels to hostels to apartment rentals.

I prefer Booking over Airbnb because I have found the bookings to be more secure and the support is better. I don’t know about you, but I have not had a lot of positive Airbnb experiences lately.

Both hotels and individual owners with units for rent can advertise on Booking.com, so you can look for any type of accommodation in one place!

You can specificly search for budget-friendly hotels in Huatulco filter feature under Your Budget.

Tip from a local: On Booking.com, the Bahias de Huatulco area is called Santa Cruz Huatulco. If you search Santa Maria Huatulco you will see results for the city of Santa Maria Huatulco, not the region. For more information on how the area is laid out, read Where to Stay in Huatulco – Your Guide to the Bays
