“Nice place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

Casa Gigi is a beautiful place to stay. The hostel is situated outside of the centre. It takes a 15 – 20 minutes’ walk to the Zocalo. You take the bus to get in the centre. Gigi is the perfect hostess. She speaks very good English and likes everything very clean. The whole family is very friendly. The rooms are very clean and lovely. You have your own bathroom and a comfy seat beyond the window. Wifi has no strong signal, but if you sit in the nice seat it is ok. They have a little garden with some birds in cages and a cat. You can sit in the garden. Breakfast was delicious. You get lots of fruit, granola, yoghurt, toast and coffee or tea. I would highly recommend this place. It’s a wonderful place to stay: a great neighborhood, lovely people, very safe, …

My first week in Oaxaca I stayed in the Centro at the fabulous Diablo Sandia.. I stayed several more weeks and found Casa Gigi, a bit less cost for a longer term stay, a little further from the center, but still totally walkable, in a great residential neighborhood.. The accommodations are lovely, clean and comfortable, quiet with a charming garden.. Gigi is a special, warm, nurturing and generous woman who took great care of me as a single lady in a new city!

This was a marvelous place to stay. The location was in a quiet, nice neighborhood a little north of the center, but an easy (and delightful) 15- to 20-minute walk downtown. 5-10 minutes by bus, which you can catch a block away. Plenty of little places to eat in the neighborhood as well.

The rooms are not fancy but are everything you need -- you have your own bathroom, the bed is comfortable, and the rooms are kept *spotless.* There is an absolutely beautiful courtyard with birds (parakeets in cages as well as ones that fly free in the trees) and the occasional very shy cats. You also get a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit, yogurt and granola (and coffee or tea).

The Wi-Fi can sometimes be a little spotty if you are in a corner of the room, but works fine if you sit by the window (and there's a comfortable chair in your room to do so). If it's nice out, you can sit in the courtyard, which is a real treat to begin with.

This is a family-owned place, and the owner is very helpful, and just a lovely person altogether. I'm sure you can find more luxurious accommodations, but I don't know if you can find a nicer place to stay.

My son and I stayed at the Gigi. Gigi and her husband were very friendly and helpful - her husband is English, and Gigi speaks perfect English. the breakfasts were generous fruit and coffee and cereal. It was good to meet up with other guests at the table. The hot water was a little temperamental (you had to pick a time when there wasn't a rush on the showers), and the water pressure wasn't great. The rooms were basic but very clean, and the setting was quiet. It's actually a bit of a hike uphill from the Zocalo, but only about 35 pesos, or even better 2 or 4 pesos (can't remember which) on the bus, which is very easy. Great base to explore Oaxaca.

the family is very well travelled and have obviously been in the business a long time, but it hasn't stopped them being warm and friendly and helpful
