Reviewed November 26, 2013

I stayed in a the dorm named, appropriately, the Insectarium I think it was. I told them there were bedbugs there, they didn't believe me. I then showed them. Response? "Oh we thought they were gone." Ugh!
The owner got in a physical confrontation with one of the guests.
It was SUPER crowded, the kitchen was small+hard to use.. just.. not recommended, there are other places in this price range.

I didn't want to give a negative review but obviously this place needs a good cleaning service and people who really care about running a quality hostel.

The other reviews speak for themselves and they speak for me too.

I guess I need more characters to satisfy trip advisor so I'm simply going to encourage you to find a cleaner, nicer place to stay.

The hostel is well located and has a good social vibe BUT its really dirty. Apart from the unsanitary toilets, bed bugs and musty rooms we noticed that they dont change sheets. We checked out in the morning, left our baggage and went out. When we came back to take our bags, on the way to use the toilet, I peeked into our room and noticed that our beds had the same sheets and pillow covers, they were just stretched...

My brother and I stayed at Los Amigos for 2 nights of our stay in Oaxaca. We only stayed that long because they had good parking for our motorbikes, we wouldn't go back. The main common area smells terrible, the dorm room door did not close, nevermind lock, the bathrooms were dirty and had barely a dribble of cold water coming from the shower.

At only 80 pesos per person per night for a dorm room, it's pretty cheap, but then we did have random people coming in in the middle of the night and sleeping for a couple of hours then leaving. In my opinion it wasn't at all worth it.

the hostel is dirty, 2 bathroom for a lot of rooms and sometime there is no water. It's one of the cheaper in this town(80 pesos dorm,100 per person private room),may be good if you stay one night in the town, but not more.
also oaxaca city it's not very beautiful, it's expensive and not so traditional,the center is similar to an european city.
if you pass from oaxaca, go to hierve el agua, really spectacular place.

Only dorm beds were available at first, so I looked around at many other hostels. Nothing beat their low prices. Also had lots of comradarie- doing outings and many parties at the hostel, unlike the other hostels. But if your priority is cleanliness, then this is not the place for you.

This place was bad. Really bad. Our room was completely covered in mould, the floors hadn't been cleaned in months it seemed, the bathroom was grim and all in all this was a terrible Hostal experience. The only good thing about this place was the wifi, which offered a very good signal for skyping people at home and telling them how bad our Hostal was. It was also well located, but we struggled to walk into town once our feet were bitten by the Mosquitos and bugs that easily got into our grotty room.

I wish we had researched this place prior to staying here. Avoid avoid avoid. It may be cheap but it is not worth it even for that money.
