“Perfect & Clean location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

By far the best hostel we have stayed at! Excellent location in the middle of the centro, with in walking distance of the bus station and right next door to an amazing park with wifi! The staff is extremely friendly and very knowledgeable in the area and what buses to catch. Our room was very clean( cleaned on a daily basis ) fans are available to cool you down in Oaxaca's heat!They also had free shots of Mezcal daily!!!! If we ever come back to Oaxaca we will make sure to come back! Oh and breakfast is delicious but we wish we could have had a second cup of coffee with out charge... it's only downfall.

We stayed there with 3 people for 2 nights on May 29th 2012. One in 8 people dorrm and 2 in a private room. We arrived early in the morning from ADO bus station : you can reach the hostel by walk, it takes about 10 min ! The staff speaks a fluent english and is over ready to help you (early check-in, tours, city informations...)Very clean, well decorated, and appreciable details like shower gel and shampoo in common showers, computers with internet to use for free, cold water dispenser in coridors, amazing kitchen on the roof. The adress to have a cheap "luxus" stay while backpacking around Mexico !!

This was one of the nicest places I have stayed in Mexico. The staff was extremely helpful, the rooms large, and the breakfast great. The location (across from a park) is great. The only negative was that the first room that I had, #201, has a window overlooking the TV room and can be a bit noisy. After a night I moved to room 102 and it was great. I would also highly recommend this place for motorcyclists: The manager is a biker and was particularly helpful in figuring out routes and suggested places to visit. Overall: A winner!

From the informative, happy to help staff (Frank on reception especially!) to the constant cleaning that goes on, to the amazing breakfast, i have zero complaints about this place.
A lady comes and makes your bed every morning, the internet is fast and free, the sofas and bean bags are new and comfortable and they have a massive DVD collection, for the nights ya just wanna stay in.
The showers are hot and powerfull with free shampoo, conditioner and shower gel and a hairdryer...HELLO!!!
The dorm room was spacious and comfortable with your own light on each bed, the bed was very comfortable and they had fans in there too so it wasnt too hot...totally the cleanest place ive ever stayed!
The location is totally ideal, only a block or so from the ADO bus station, and a few blocks from the main Zocolo...Don Nino is the place to be!!!

Magnificent. So far its the best place that I have stayed in Mexico and one of the nicest and most enjoyable places I have ever stayed in the world. I was going to stay in Oaxaca for 3 nights but I stayed for 7 as I had such a good time! The staff are excellent and English speaking, the facilities are excellent and the sheets swapped every day and the rooms also cleaned every day. Absolutely beautiful location opposite the park which has activities in the evening and a Yoga centre 5 minutes away where you can do an hour for $60 :-) Happy times!!

This is a fantastic hostel - the best I have stayed in in Mexico. The hostel has everything you need, is a lovely place to hang out in and the staff are fantastic. Highly recommended.

I stayed there for 3 nights. It was ok. Ok room, showers in another floor, terrible breakfast.
But the most annoying was that I bough I tour at the hostel and they charged me 50% (FIFTY PERCENT!!!) more than everyone else who was in the exact same tour. This is beyond unreasonable, it is not acceptable. I felt like I was stolen. And to make it worse, when i boght it I asked if they charged more (I could be ok with paying - a little! - more as it would save me some time) and they said NO, it's the exact same price.
