We came across this hostel randomly after another reservation had fallen through and were so happily surprised. What a great place! The location is great, walking distance to all the main plazas & restaurants and also near the bus station. The 4 bed dorm room was clean and comfy and very affordable. The bathrooms have multiple showers which is a... More

The rooms were cleaned every day, the beds were comfy and breakfast great every day. But Oaxaca would not have been the experience it was without Miguel at reception. He made an effort to make sure we had something different to do every night and tried to get the hostel mingling on the rooftop terrace. From clubs, locals bars and... More

A little pricey, but their free breakfast is actually really good. The wifi is fast, but cuts out from time to time. The staff is very friendly and the dorms are clean. This was the first hostel I stayed at on my trip and one of my favorites. I would recommend this hostel.

The hostel itself is really nice, it's clean and breakfast was good. It is also strategically located close to both the main bus terminal and the Zócalo. However, when I tried to book the room in person (I was staying at another hostel), I had been told the female dorm for 10 people was not available, and I was placed... More

There was a big group of us that stayed at this hostel. Hostel is very clean. Breakfast is included too. Reception staff were very helpful and friendly, as we wanted to organise a private bus for our group. It is well located - about a 5 - 10 minute walk from the Zocolo. It is opposite a beautiful park with... More

What's best of this place is the location. It's just 5-10 mins walk from st.domingo and zocalo, the main attractions. The place is clean. The staff is friendly. The exc.rate is also good (yes, we can change our money there). I'm not a big fan of their breakfast, though. But then again, they are budget hostel.. The downside is the... More

I stayed here nearly 10 days, when I first came to oaxaca and then a few days later after returning from the coast. It is very clean and has plenty of showers and toilets for the guests which are cleaned regularly during the day. The common areas are great to hang out and relax. Breakfast was very nice Mexican food.... More

This hostel is a little off the beaten path if you wanna be super close to Zocalo; which really is only about a 7 min walk, on a lovely street (take Alcala St, it´s pedestrian friendly and has cute buildings and cool stores/food options) but I think that works in it´s favor because it´s super quite at Don Nino, so...
