Colorful patio and beautiful setting, BUT the overly strict rules and signs everywhere like 'if your guests stay after 9pm, you pay the night for them' and exaggerated checkout policy kind of spoiled it a little.

It is like 10-15 minutes walking from downtown and service is very good! The place is very clean and the decoration is nice, you can borrow bicycles during the day and breakfast is included. I really recommend it.

We ended up staying here at the recommendation of another hostel in Mazunte. We were pleasantly surprised to see how nice and clean all the rooms and bathrooms were. The entire hostel is very colorful and beautifully decorated with a really nice courtyard and common kitchen area which definitely facilitated conversation between travelers. We stayed in one of the smaller... More

They have a lovely quiet courtyard, clean shared bathrooms/showers for the dorms, free wifi, simple continental breakfast included (toast,... More

I don’t know really what it is that gives this place its magic. It may be the wonderful garden where hummingbirds come and feed; or the beautiful colors blending perfectly with the blue sky, the warm and friendly staff always ready to help you, or the delicious breakfast fresh made every day, every day different… It is simply a wonderful...

Located in a quiet area of Oaxaca, only 10-15 minutes walk from the Zócalo, this hostel is decorated with beautiful Mexican motives. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I was there during the celebrations of the Day of the Dead, and they organized a cooking class to bring the guests closer to this wonderful Mexican tradition. Room was very... More
