The hostel is located one block from the Zocalo, right in the center of everything, which is a huge advantage. It's also fairly clean and looks nice. However, there was NO HOT WATER in the shower. I asked to change rooms because of this and also because one of the toilets was not working. They moved me to another room... More

Whether you want a private room, or a bed in a dormitory, this hostal is worth it. It is one block from the zocalo and has a roofside terrace you can see the surrounding area from and the the stars at night. The staff are cool, young and friendly, not to mention knowledgable about their city. During high season good... More

The hostel is in good location, Dorm rooms are comfortable and clean. But the staff can't speak English, just can speak in spaniah only, hard to get information. Wifi very poor signal, no signal in room, just can get wifi at outside the room or reception. Have nice kitchen, but is locked, no open for guest use!

I stayed in this hostel from Apr 11-15 and it was a big mistake to book all 4 days in a stretch. The hostel is relatively clean but not as clean as compared to most of the hostels I have stayed in Mexico. The guest area consist of 2 portion - one under the open roof, the other under the... More

We arrived at Oaxaca City without any reservations to an hotel or hostel. After trying some of the hostels we stumbled upon Hostal Don Miguel. Rooms were $450 Pesos ($38 USD.) a Night and were very basic, just enough space for the bed & private restroom. Not too bad if you are only going to use it to sleep, but... More

I don't usually leave opinions even when things are not as expected. However, this time I decided I had to let others know. My husband and I spent one night at Hostel Don Miguel. It was unplanned and we had no references, but we were tired and it seemed a decent enough place. We couldn't have been more wrong. As... More

The service here was terrible. They kept shifting an changing the prices of everything, from the rooms to the key deposit. The bathrooms were very dirty, it seemed as though they hasn't been cleaned for months, even to the point where the whole dormitory smelt. They didn't bother to give us clean linen, either. Also they advertise 24 hour reception,... More

Great location, beautiful clean hostel but sooo quiet! We were practically the only ones staying there and to our disappointment the roof top hot tub was drained. The dorms were really nice, nice private bathroom. The people running the place, locals, were quite but nice.
