“Beware”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

I don't usually leave opinions even when things are not as expected. However, this time I decided I had to let others know. My husband and I spent one night at Hostel Don Miguel. It was unplanned and we had no references, but we were tired and it seemed a decent enough place. We couldn't have been more wrong.
As in many other hostels in Oaxaca, you access the place by ringing a door bell as the fence is locked. The next morning over 200dlls of ours were stolen from our things while inside the hostel and with the hostel fence to the street locked. They said we were their only guests and they had no one to question. Turns out there was one more guest. Although, I am not blaming that person in any way, It does go to show that the staff was quick to lie. We figured calling the police was pointless. The staff said they would call us if they could find something out, but never did of course. Didn't even return our calls when we called the next day.

Stayed September 2013, traveled as a couple

The service here was terrible. They kept shifting an changing the prices of everything, from the rooms to the key deposit. The bathrooms were very dirty, it seemed as though they hasn't been cleaned for months, even to the point where the whole dormitory smelt. They didn't bother to give us clean linen, either. Also they advertise 24 hour reception, but you can't stay out longer than midnight. We left after one night, and I would never stay there again.

Great location, beautiful clean hostel but sooo quiet!
We were practically the only ones staying there and to our disappointment the roof top hot tub was drained.
The dorms were really nice, nice private bathroom.
The people running the place, locals, were quite but nice.
