Hostal Casa del Sol Oaxaca
Ranked #7 of 119 Specialty Lodging in Oaxaca
Reviewed January 6, 2014

For those looking for the service and standards of a great hotel but the intimacy and friendliness of a hostel, look no further.....than Hostal Casa del Sol.

This was my parents' first stop on their holiday in Mexico and they were enamored by the charming rooms and friendly service of the more than competent staff that work there.

The rooms are decorated in a way you rarely see in other places, with care and attention. There are books in each room, art work on the walls and touches that make it feel like a home from home (in my case, a much better one). A good breakfast is served in the lovely little open courtyard and you're free to use the kitchen as you please.

I can't recommend Casa del Sol highly enough and urge those visiting Oaxaca to stop by for a few days.

Hello Dear Guests. There are not enough words to thank you for this lovely and charming comment about our hostal. As you are travelers with much experience and have stayed in many and different types of accommodations it's a real pleasure to know that you recommend us widely. We try to be different using beautiful handicrafts and traditional ceramics of Oaxaca in order for our guests really feel at a Oaxacan home. We are so glad that your stay in our small hostal was pleasant. We hope you have the chance to come back and enjoy again the colors, aromas and landscapes that Oaxaca offers you. Warm regards.

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.

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.
