This was a great hostel, had a little bit of a hotel vibe to it. My dorm bed was comfortable, it had a great rooftop terrace with useable kitchen and also other great communal areas with comfy couches and bean bags. Plenty of showers and always clean bathrooms. Breakfast was different most days and absolutely delicious- some traditional mexican food... More

Dorms are comfortable with a fan when its hot and a blanket when its a bit chilly. Each bed has a light and power socket with lockers available. Not too many chill areas but they do have a couple TV rooms that are ok to hang out at as well as a pool table and Foosball. Breakfast is doable and... More

The location is great and was convenient to the main first class bus station, a very short walk. Not far from the Zocalo and a very nice park is outside. So I think the location is great. It has some computers for use and some TV areas. It also has a good sized kitchen and terrace area. The women's dorm... More

We came across this hostel randomly after another reservation had fallen through and were so happily surprised. What a great place! The location is great, walking distance to all the main plazas & restaurants and also near the bus station. The 4 bed dorm room was clean and comfy and very affordable. The bathrooms have multiple showers which is a... More

The rooms were cleaned every day, the beds were comfy and breakfast great every day. But Oaxaca would not have been the experience it was without Miguel at reception. He made an effort to make sure we had something different to do every night and tried to get the hostel mingling on the rooftop terrace. From clubs, locals bars and... More

A little pricey, but their free breakfast is actually really good. The wifi is fast, but cuts out from time to time. The staff is very friendly and the dorms are clean. This was the first hostel I stayed at on my trip and one of my favorites. I would recommend this hostel.

The hostel itself is really nice, it's clean and breakfast was good. It is also strategically located close to both the main bus terminal and the Zócalo. However, when I tried to book the room in person (I was staying at another hostel), I had been told the female dorm for 10 people was not available, and I was placed... More

There was a big group of us that stayed at this hostel. Hostel is very clean. Breakfast is included too. Reception staff were very helpful and friendly, as we wanted to organise a private bus for our group. It is well located - about a 5 - 10 minute walk from the Zocolo. It is opposite a beautiful park with... More

What's best of this place is the location. It's just 5-10 mins walk from st.domingo and zocalo, the main attractions. The place is clean. The staff is friendly. The exc.rate is also good (yes, we can change our money there). I'm not a big fan of their breakfast, though. But then again, they are budget hostel.. The downside is the... More
