“Great place to unwind.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2010

Spent a day and night with a friend who lives in Mexico who recommended La Villada. Drove up a winding road and through large metal gate into the facility. Standing in courtyard brought a tranquil feeling compared to the hustle and bustle of Oaxaca city. Extremely helpful and friendly staff who helped us check in.

Comfortable room and bed, warm decor and great view of the city. The rooms are not heated, it got down to 63 degree F in the morning so was cold. Surprised to find out that noise carried in from the next room. Heard the guest next door talking on his cell. Minor inconvenienced though. Loved the hammocks outside the room. The wooden pillars and ceiling in the restaurant were covered with messages from guests from different part of the world.

Would definitely return, good price for a place with great atmosphere and character.

We just left La Villada Inn yesterday, and we miss it already. It was a great stay with great owners who are helpful in both English and Spanish. They had great suggestions on what to do and see. The kitchen staff was hit or miss....some of them were extremely unfriendly and did not appear to enjoy helping us. However, Yaya was the sweetest woman there. Our room was very clean, though our toliet paper was never refilled after it ran out. We stayed for a week, and with 4 girls in a room that proved to be an issue. The location is beautiful. The cab to the zocalo is about 50 pesos, but it was great to be away from the city center. It was like our own little oasis.

We had planned to visit a few hostels in Oaxaca. A few days at La Villada, however, wasn't enough! It's a great place to make friends, and an excellent base for traveling the surrounding area.

I planned just a two night stay at La Villada and ended up staying five nights! The owners, Chai and Javier, treat you like a member of the family. They create a friendly and open environment that makes meeting new friends very easy. The pool and view of the city are spectacular. This is one of the best hostels you will ever visit!

We were late to arrive to Oaxaca due to problems on the road and we never book a room ahead, so we didn't know whether La Villada In would even have any beds for us. Turns out they had to rearrange their guests to give us a room and they did it with a smile on their faces. We got a private room with a shared bathroom and it was very tastefully decorated and very clean. It's a bit difficult to find them (especially when you're traveling after dark), but the view is worth it. The staff is very helpful and friendly, it's like a big family! Definitely worth a stay!

We stayed here over new years eve, and the family invited us to their new year feast. This place has an amazing atmosphere, everything was clean and tidy while we couldn't help but feel at piece here. Food was incredible.. Cannot recommend enough! Oh oh, wonderful view on new years eve of the fireworks from the surrounding hills.
