I have stayed at Don Pablo's three times in the last six years, the staff are very kind and helpful and it is a clean and fairly quite spot with a great outdoor courtyard. Relatively quiet as far as hostels go, there is also a kitchen available for use.

Best thing about Casa de Don Hostel is the central location, blocks away from the center of town. Met very friendly and inviting people there, inviting me to join them for dinner. Staff are very welcoming and friendly. The patio is an enjoyable place to eat and socialize. My room was clean and very comfortable.

We stayed at next to the kitchen and you could hear everything. And one night there was some people "partying loudly" and I tried to ask staff to do something about it (because it was 2 am) but they didin't do much. Guy just told me that they were drunk...yeah. The hostel's patio is nice and it's always nice to... More

Staff were friendly and helpful, lovely breakfast (fruit, cereal, toast), really central location and comfortable beds. I would definitely recommend. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer because we forgot to book in extra nights and they filled up. Even then the staff offered us the sofa in the communal room! If I came back, this is where... More

Nice people working there, excellent location. We were there two times on our round trip through Mexico and the hostel is only a couple of blocks away from downtown and only 100m walk to get to the local market. They were very helpful and what is more important, they were very honest because although we paid double because i did... More

This place is real nice and clean. The showers are clean as are the bathrooms. The computers are slow and have some issues but they have computers which is cool. Very nicely arranged hostel and well run. Pretty mellow.

I visited Oaxaca over the Day of the Dead weekend in November. I'm used to staying in hostels and my friends and I were attracted by the price and location. There is a kitchen for self-catering although we didn't use it, and a courtyard which is lovely in the sun. The breakfast was good, with fresh fruit, bread, coffee and... More

The positive: A great location! Friendly and helpful English speaking staff. Security to the front door 24 hours a day. Great breakfast (fruit, toast, jam, and cereal). Clean. Comfortable beds. Social common space. Computers. The downside: The common room is on the other side of the dorm rooms, and the dorm rooms have a very thin metal door that provides... More
