It was great to be here with fountain in the middle, relax music in the mornings and nice breakfast too. Location is very practical. Very organized and clean. You can enjoy the hammocks in a nice environment.

Looks like a hostel with yard and hammocks but feels like a prison. 3 levels of front doors, scary loud door bell, dorm room you have to slam to close and open every time with a key, extremely rude owner, 60 pesos after checkout charge even just to store bags, 50 pesos key deposit, 15 pesos tower rental, not allowed...

If you can, find another place. On the morning of my check out, at 7 o'clock I have brought in a friend, who has arrived by night bus from Mexico City. As it was still early, we agreed to hang around in the hostel for 2 hours, before heading out together to San José del Pacifico. We both were certain... More

We spent almost a week at Luz de Luna and it was a great home for us in Oaxaca. We stayed in a private room and our friend took a dorm bed. Our room was huge with two spare beds and an adjoining toilet which gave us lots of space to spread our gear out. The double bed in room... More

Good location, close to the zocalo. Affordable if you are on a budget.. includes breakfast (toast jam etc) wifi and hot showers! Perfect for a short stay, beds weren't very comfortable and the toilet in the rooms had no roof so not a lot of privacy. But apart from that we had a pleasant stay!

It was my second visit in Oaxaca City. I chose this hostel because it is 130$ and in previous one I paid 150$ and Im traveling on a budget. However as Im trying to explain here I just had the worst hostel experience,and because they charge you for everything,it wasn't even cheap because in the other place the breakfast was... More

The staff is friendly and they clean the hostel everyday. Also, the patio (with two hammocks) is very nice. Unfortunately, there are only two toilets available if you are in a dorm - and one of them has no top wall, so everyone can hear you.. Another unpleasant thing is, that -if you pay with hostelworld - they will not... More

Great place to stay. Clean, safe, hot water, very close to the Zocalo, and great vibe. We arrived without reservations and luckily got a room. Better to book in advance. The prices are cheap and you can have a room for you and your couple.
