“Adorable little hostel, great for first timers”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

I stayed here for 6 or 7 nights over Thanksgiving, initially found it on trip advisor. I 100% recommend this place! The staff is super super nice, and the location is great. The rooms were all very clean, and even though everyone used the shared bathrooms they were SPOTLESS and smelled amazing (the women's bathroom did at least)!

There isn't a huge common/social area, and the wifi doesn't reach the bedrooms (at least in the dorms and Naranja room; you just come outside into the courtyard to check your email/FB etc). You probably won't spend much time in the hostel since there's so much to do in Oaxaca but just FYI your room is the only living space.

Room Tip: if you're traveling with a friend the Naranja room is a good option (2 double beds)

My husband and I stayed Hostel Casa Del Sol from November 20 till November 26, and I am glad my husband found this place! The owener and his staff was all very friendly, helpful and amazingly hospitable. They took care of us very well throughout the stay. Lupita always helped us when we tried to practice Spanish we learned at school. She always patiently waited while we take time to make a sentence to ask for coffee, toast, some help, and she corrected our Epanish as well as to encourage us to repeat the given sentences. We enojyed the onversation with our very little Espanol with her^-^. The hostel was very well maintained, and always clean. We loved the court yard of this hostel as well. It was lovely and cozy. so you could spend all day there.
The location was good, close to the meeting point with the school we went to, Amigo del sol. All the mercados are wakable distance. They serve breakfast with not only toasts and millk but lots of fruits. They had free wifi we can use, and did not have problems with connections.

Thank you Casa Del Sol for the wonderful time there with you!

Room Tip: We stayed in the private room with private bathroom.

We spent four nights at Hostal Casa del Sol and found it a perfect retreat - excellent value for money. Our room decor was very pleasant and kept very clean and the courtyard was a lovely place to relax after a long day of walking. The bathrooms, whilst shared, were also spotless. And importantly for us it was wonderful and quiet, a nice change from a much noisier hostal we'd been in the week previous. The staff were very friendly and always helpful.

Staying at Casa del Sol really made our stay in Oaxaca a treat. We had a double room which was tastefully decorated and large and comfortable. We were welcomed by a smiling Jamie who greeted us personally and cheerfully introduced us to the place. The inner courtyard is really pretty and they have really made an effort to make the rooms pleasant. The shared bathrooms are of a high standard and kept very clean. Breakfast was simple but great coffee and friendly service. We also had a fun chocolate making demonstration on one evening. Highly recommended. Thanks to all the staff for a great stay. Stacy and Paul

Hello Stacy and Paul! first of all we would like to thank your comment, it´s very cute. We are really happy that your visit to Oaxaca and staying in our hostel had been pleasant. It was great that you have been part of our small proyect "CHOCOLATEANDO", the best part was that we had a funny time: smelling, shaking and tasting hot chocolat; next time we will prepare something more. We hope you can come back again and discover more of Oaxaca. You will be very welcome to home. Best regads.

Really fantastic. Just want to stay another night! The dorm can be a bit noisy with traffic, but its very comfortable and good value. Sleep wasn't an issue for me. Great staff who are always happy to help and flexible. Oh and a nice breakfast in the mornings and good quality WiFi.

Host Guillermo and his delightful staff made a big contribution to a wonderful week in Oaxaca city. Our room was kept immaculate, healthy breakfasts (included) were always provided with smiles and friendly chat. It seemed that any time we needed anything one of the staff would be there with suggestions, directions and information. The most friendly staff we have experienced in many years.

Room Tip: Room with bath definitely worth the extra pesos.

Hostel Casa Del Sol is a fantastic place to stay.

We stayed in a private room with ensuite which was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The courtyard was also beautiful and a good spot to chat to other guests.

The staff were friendly and helpful and even put on face painting, mescal and hot chocolate for the Day of the Dead.

Would definitely recommend this place to other travellers.
