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

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

Not a bad place to crash is Oaxaca. The place is clean and safe and the breakfast is very good. Free wifi and the staff were friendly and helpful. The hostel is not in the centre of town, however i is only a very short walk

All of the staff here were very fair to me, especially considering the fact that they helped me with a problem on my HI membership card. I was the one getting upset over a mistake that Mundo Joven Catedral made, but all of the staff, including the manager, kept calm and assisted me. I do appreciate that. Having said this,... More

I spent just one weekend but it was nice, cheap and comfortable. People is very kind. Maybe the only thing I didn't like was that my bedroom remained unclean. Nice location and paintings on the walls.
