“Clean, friendly, in the center of Oaxaca”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

The place is really clean and has got a nice rooftop terrace where you can chill out. The staff was also really nice and provides all the necessary information. The breakfast with coffee, bread, eggs (made the way you prefer it), jam, juice, cereals and bananas was really good. It's a pity that there is only one elecrical socket in the whole room. I would recommend the place!!

From the moment I stepped inside, I loved the place.
The common areas facilitate the process of getting to know new people.
The staff is very kind, everything is tidy and nice and there is a very nice terrace on the roof with a beautiful view :)
They sort waste and in the morning make fresh scrambled eggs in front of you :)
I can only warmly recommand everyone to go to Casa Angel when you go to Oaxaca :)

I arrived there in the afternoon after a 7hours busride from Mexico-City. They gave me the roomkey and showed me the absolut beautiful terrace, which is a perfect place to relax an talk to others. The room and the bathroom were clean and the breakfast was amazing (bread, eggs, fruits, milk, cafe, cereales,...).
Also the receptionists were very helpful and tried to organize everything I asked for.
It was the perfect place to stay in Oaxaca!

We arrived in Oaxaca late afternoon after a long flight from Brazil. The hostel was easily reached from the airport, using the cheap shared van system, charging per person. The check-in was easy and quick, and the people from the reception were friendly and gave us a lot of useful tips and also a map of the town.

We stayed at Casa Angel for three nights, during Dia de Los Muertos, on a private double room, ensuite. The room was basic, but fairly comfortable and very clean. There were no TV or air conditioning, and the room got a little too warm at night, because we could not open the windows, as they open to a corridor and people passed by often. The bathroom, on the other hand, was very nice with good hot showers. At night, there was some noise coming from the terrace, but it was not too bad, and I did have a good night sleep. The wifi worked very well in the room, and they also have a couple of desktop computers available for guests, and it was very useful.

The breakfast was included in the price, and it was good, including eggs, bread, jam, butter and hot coffee or tea.

The hostel is well located, on a walking distance from most of the attractions, close to some nice restaurants, but far away from the noise of the main square.

The price is very fair, about 45USD per night for a double room, especially considering it was on a very busy week, during the Day of the Dead.

Overall, I consider Casa Angel a good and cheap option in Oaxaca, with good value for money, nice location and very friendly ambience.

This is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in throughout my travels. Awesome location, good breakfast, and nice people. I was in the 4 bed on the first floor and didn't have any complaints -- definitely worth the extra pesos to stay there than the huge 12 bed room. There was only another person in there with me during the majority of the week I was there. Worth every penny (and more!).

Room Tip: 12 bedroom is a bit big -- 4 bed is worth the extra pesos.

Good location; 2 minute walk from the bus which takes 5 mins to the station and to the collectivos. 10 minute walk to the centre of the historical centre. Nice staff. Nice bathrooms. Great friendly vibe.
