We, my boyfriend and I, stayed in this Hostel more than one week. Oaxaca is a wonderful City and the Hostel also. An accommodating Service, great Insider Tipps for the city, cheap Tours, hot water and a familiar feeling. The prices are perfekt for the Location (two minutes by Walk to a farmers market and five minutes to the centre)!... More

My wife and I stayed here one night in December. We arrived 6 am in the morning, but they still gave us the doom, as soon as they could. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Hostel is certainly very backpacker friendly. We would say, it is a good value for money, if you are into backpacker places. We... More

Very nice hostel! Location is pretty central, few blocks to the pedestrian street and close to a local taco restaurant, reasonable prices and very tasty, only locals there. Right at the corner there are buses to the terminal. The hostel itself is clean, good hot shower, there are lockers in the room, the beds are confy and the common room... More

This was a great little find. The staff are lovely, and it seems to attract a very nice bunch of backpackers from all over the world. I stayed in one of the dorms whilst doing a Spanish language course and found lots of people to practice with. Rooms are clean and well maintained and there's a nice communal area to... More

Best Hostel I have ever stayed in! If you are looking for something homie, comfortable and relaxed then this is the place for you. Stayed here a week and a half in August 2014 and came to feel completely at home at this place. The owner is there almost all the time and any issues get taken care of quickly.... More

This is a very clean and quiet place, not far from the touristic center of the city. The price is perfectly affordable. In fact, before I decided to stay here, I went around looking for other options, and this one was definitely the best choice. The area is safe and illuminated. The wifi works fine, breakfast is included on the... More

I've stayed at El Pochon several times over the last two years. Here are my observations: Positive: 1. The staff are friendly and helpful. 2. Staff are honest. I had some laundry done by them and Dona Alo, who was washing the clothes, came up to me and handed me some money she had found in my shirt pocket that... More

I stayed 2 nights in hostal Pochon and I really enjoyed it. It's a nice cosy hostal. What was best, is that Erika really helped me out when I forgot my wallet in the hostal after the checkout. She send it to my next destination (Puerto escondico) without within 2 days and safed my trip. Thanks a lot! :)
