Great hostel with a lovely courtyard and places to chill out. Staff were helpful & happy to offer advice / make reservations etc. Breakfast of coffee, fruit and toast included too. We had a large simple double room with a private bathroom with hot water.

Toilet&shower need a lot of improvement - the look terrible, not clean, and downstairs there is only boiling water with low pressure stream that goes mainly on the wall. Rooms have no privacy as all windows face the main shared area and kitchen. Kitchen was well equipped but without washing soap. Breakfast was very basic.

The hostel is only a short walk away from downtown Oaxaca, so there´s no need to get a cab or colectivo, so that was very nice. I liked our room as well, although it only had a small window facing the reception (but, on the other hand, that meant no noise). Breakfast was really good and is served in a... More

I stayed here for two nights to visit the city and the surrounding area. It was a very comfortable stay. The tours that go to Monte Alban are great, and the Hierve de Agua. The terrace is very comfortable.

Location alright, just a short walk from the attractions of the historical centre. The backyard is cozy and nice for beers at night. The included breakfast is good but not great - don't miss the apple marmalade! Staff friendly and knowledgeable. On the negative side the hostel lacked a little bit on the atmosphere side of things and our double... More

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.
