I absolutely enjoyed staying in Hotel Don Nino. My stay was for 5 days, and the attention was great for my whole stay. The room are big and the beds are comfortable and are cleaned daily. I traveled with a group of 20 people so we got an even better price. On the last day I was not ready to... More

We spent two nights at Don Nino, and would highly recommend it. Front desk staff are extremely helpful with suggesting places to go and answering questions on anything. Ask them where the best tamales are! Rooms are very clean and well laid out, big lockers. Breakfast was good as well, Mexican style! Highly recommended.

Spent the night here on my way south. They offered to let me park my motorcycle inside in the lobby. I was very happy to have this level of service. I stayed in a dorm room and it was clean and had secure lockers. For the price you couldn't ask for much more, which included breakfast and coffee. This place... More

Stayed here for almost 2 weeks while going to language school in Oaxaca. Great location on a park, close to bus station and a few minutes walk to zocalo. Good free breakfast in restaurant downstairs - usually eggs and beans and tortillas. Best hot showers of any hosel I've stayed at in Mexico.

I hated staying here. I rented a private room in the hopes of being able to sleep. Our room SUCKED was totally over priced as I found other rooms for less that were better all the windows face into a courtyard so stupid little children screaming as they come into sleep kept me up. The pipes from the shower in... More

For 2 weeks in January, I stayed at Hostel Don Niño with a group of my fellow college students as sort of study abroad program. I had never stayed in a hostel before, so I'll admit that I was a little hesitant to stay here. Over all, though, it turned out to be amazing. The hotel/hostel's front desk staff was... More

I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights and I had a really good time. The place is very well organized. There is a whole sperate area where only hostel guests can go so that makes the hostel very safe and for any traveller that is always a great thing. The facilities I used served me very well!
