I had a dorm bed which was comfortable clean and very spacious. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious and in a garden setting. The location of the hostel was Central enough to be close to the sights but also quiet for those who like to sit and regroup.

Prior to arriving in Oaxaca, Mexico, I had booked 6 nights at Casa de Don Pablo. Although I arrived almost 4 hours before check-in the friendly staff told me I could store my bags, hang-out in the courtyard or the TV room and have a couple of cervezas while I waited for my room. After being in airports and on... More

This is my second time staying here. The floorplan was changed dramatically from four years ago. I was expecting a private room on the second level, but since changes were made my room was on on the ground floor. It is a bit noisy since it faces the common area courtyard. Additionally, guests smoke out there. The breakfast was much... More

Good solid hostel, nice central courtyard where it's easy to meet people. Internet was pretty good, rooms were spacious enough, and the location was perfect, only a few blocks from the zocalo. The roof terrace is a bonus for anyone who wants to continue the party after 11pm, as it was far enough away from the rooms that noise was... More
