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!

The hostal is located in a very pretty part of the historical center of Oaxaca City. It is very close to the ADO bus terminal and within walking distance (10 - 15 mins) to lots of shopping. The cost of a dorm room ($160 or $190 pesos) is lower than some very bad accommodation in other parts of Mexico. The... More

Despite fairly dingey dorms, inadequate fans and air-con, and slightly grubby bathrooms, this hostel is saved by its friendly atmosphere, decent common areas, including rooftop kitchen and pool room, and excellent breakfast. While not being right in the thick of things, it's only a few minutes walk to the main sites in Oaxaca. Plus staff members are helpful and accommodating,... More

Sad to say, but true... The hostel seems trying to make best profit from its former positive rating in the Lonely Planet, where it is indicated as "the pick" in Oaxaca for budget accommodations. Based on that recommendation we choose the hotel / hostel as our destination after a 16 hour bus ride through Mexico. We should have checked in... More

I stayed here last year for about 12 days. I spent a few days in private rooms and a few days in 2 different shared female dorms. The female dorms were a little stuffy and noisy but that's to be expected in a hostel. I met some fascinating women in the dorms as I always do in hostels. The private... More
