“A Peaceful Little Oasis”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

I stayed here on both my visits to Oaxaca and by the second time I felt like part of the family! Casa del Sol combines a beautiful old colonial building with impeccable decoration, peaceful and tranquil atmosphere, clean, lovely breakfast, friendly staff and just 5 minutes' stroll from Oaxaca town centre. Also very well positioned for the bus station. Stay here and you'll not be disappointed. Gracias Guillermo!

Room Tip: The dormitory bunks are very comfy, the twin room I shared second time round was great, either optio...

We were lucky enough to be given the chocolate room which had an en suite. The room was clean and comfortable. There are no windows but this wasn't a problem for us.
Hostal had a simple but good breakfast and was nice to eat this on the patio.
The hostal is located near the Santa Domingo cathedral and only a few blocks away from the main strip and is also not that far from the main bus station.
The hostal was relatively quiet and the staff were really relaxed and friendly.
For the price, this place was definitely worth it.

We stayed at casa del sol for three nights, and we had a good time. We had a good size room, and a shared bathroom, which was new and clean. The boys who run the casa are really helpfull and kind, and they will help you around. The location is very good, a few blocks further and you are around where the action is! A good place for a good price!

Just returned home from 4 nights at Casa del Sol Oaxaca. We loved it. Guillermo, the owner, was wonderful. Please understand that this is a hostal. It is not a hotel. It is beautifully rustic. The central patio of this beautiful old colonial house in the center of Oaxaca is also the center of life at Casa del Sol. Long, sunny days in the patio. Cool nights. Very comfortable. The rooms are roomy, clean and simple. Mostly shared baths , kept very clean. The secret of Casa del Sol is that we felt that we were at home.
We hope to go back every year.
Thanks for everything Guillermo and continued success.

Place was clean, basic breakfast. Rooms were not very private specially the dormitory which is shared by both sexes. Plumbing needs some attention as shower appeared blocked and you were standing ankle deep in water. Value for money if you don't want to spend a lot.

Just to be clear, this is not a hotel but a hostel, with 5 bedrooms without private bathrooms and one dorm of about 10 beds. There is a very clean bathroom for women with 3 showers, and 2 showers for men. Most bedrooms don’t have a window. We chose the orange room that does have a window but had to pass through the dorm to get to it, and the street traffic noise was pretty loud. There is a gym opposite that plays loud music for an hour or so around 6pm. Breakfast was simple – toast, cereals, fruit, fruit juice, coffee, tea – and a large tub of margarine plonked on the table. The rooms are nicely decorated and the courtyard is very pretty. The people that work there are very nice. It’s a good deal at 350 pesos for a double room. We paid an extra 100 pesos to have the room during an extra day before taking the night bus.

My partner and I just spent five nights in the Casa del Sol, and it was really a great stay. It was probably the friendliest hotel I’ve ever visited. If you’re looking for room service and super thick towels, this is probably not the place for you. If you’re looking for a small, friendly place, where you’re made to feel welcome and comfortable, this is the place. There are only five rooms plus a small dorm room around a sunny courtyard. A light breakfast is served in the courtyard every morning, where you can meet other guests from around the world. You can also just relax in the courtyard to read or catch up on your email any time.

The hostel is east of the center of town, right behind the stunning Santo Domingo church. It’s convenient to town, (three blocks to a pedestrian street and about eight blocks to the town square) but on a quiet street.

I wasn’t sure I believed the positive reviews I read here before my stay. How can the best hotel in Oaxaca cost $35(US) a night? But I’m really glad I chose the Casa del Sol.

Room Tip: there are only five rooms plus a small dorm. You can't go wrong
