“Hostel Newbie!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

I wanted to explore Oaxaca and I did, I stayed in this marvelous hostel because of the great reviews. The room was so tidy, the lockers were spacious, the internet was great, the kitchen was pretty big. I absolutely enjoyed my stay here! The restrooms were nice and so clean, I loved this, it was amazingly clean and it didn't smell. There was no stains in the sheets, the staff was great and the location was perfect, just a 10 minute walk from downtown and a 15 min cab ride from the bus station. I loved my first experience in a hostel and this is all thanks to CASA ANGEL YOUTH HOSTEL!

This was our first hostel experience and it was great. We had a private room and bathroom which is like a hotel room without a tv! So clean and new , good sized bathroom and a few toiletries available. Internet is fast and works almost everywhere, the staff are friendly and helpful and all speak English. Breakfast was great, especially if you're craving eggs! Casa angel is great
Value, probably not the cheapest hostel in the area but I'm sure it's the cleanest and most comfortable! Would stay here again if ever in the area.

We have spent 2 days of our honeymoon staying in casa angel in a double room. It was very clean and comfortable, we have enjoyed meeting other travelers on the terasse during night and drinking mezcals or beers. As well in common areas you can watch movies and make dinners together. It was 10 min walk from zocalo.
As well since our bus was at 20:00 ti San Cristobal de las casas there was no problem keeping stuff there till departure, so we could visit Monte Alban and enjoy the Oaxaca market where you can eat like a king.
For sure our next time in Oaxaca we will stay here:D

My boyfriend and I are backpacking around Mexico and the US the moment and have stayed at a huge array of hostels, but this one has automatically gone to the top of my charts!

More like a boutique hotel than a hostel, everything is spotlessly clean and well-maintained and the overall feel is sleek and modern but with a respect for the city's heritage - loved the original floor tiles!

We had a private ensuite and it was better than lots of hotels I've stayed in - clean, modern, spacious and comfy. The bathroom was something else - bliss after a couple of months on the road with loads of room, hot water and a gorgeous sink. And live plants!

Overall vibe was really friendly with lots of people to chat to and some great tours out of the city where we got to know more guests. This applies to staff too - they were all lovely and knowledgeable and spoke perfect English.

Location is fantastic, short walk from everything but still quiet at night.

Loved our stay and would return and recommend without hesitation!

Casa Angel is clean, comfortable, friendly, and reasonably priced. Theres a really nice common area with a kitchen and tv (with netflix!) and lots of resources for things to do in Oaxaca. Theres also a really nice roof area with a greenhouse garden and view. Im in a 3 person room and its nothing too special but were not fussy people and the environment more than makes up for it.

If youre looking for a place that will serve as a hub for exploring the city, interested in meeting other travellers, and you dont need a very fancy room, this is your place.

Just stayed for one night but will definitely come back to this place. The rooms are clean and also are the bathrooms. They have a wonderful decorated roof terrace. The breakfast was included and it was so good. The two elder ladies working there arrange egg dishes if you want and the coffee was strong enough to wake me up early in the morning. The receptionists are all really friendly. They have a luggage room and offer taxi transfers to the bus station or airports. Situated directly in the center of Oaxaca, not far from anything.

Facilities were all well maintained, and staff were friendly and helpful, they know a lot about goings on in the area and are happy to share their knowledge. You can buy booze on the premises as well which is always handy (although slightly more expensive than buying your own and pooling your resources). The hostel was quite quiet when I was there - perhaps it's a quieter place in general. Didn't stop me from meeting some good people and having a good time, or lessen the positive experience. The staff are lenient on noise as long as you aren't bothering anyone. All round good'un but nothing exceptional.
