Visited the hostel don nino during my 3 day stay in Oaxaca. Stayed in a dormitory which I ended up having all to myself. The hostel is very clean and the facility's are good. The hostel also offers tours to nerby places like monte Alban and others. The free breakfast was one of the best I have received on my... 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!

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
