This is a nice hostel, about 6 blocks walking to the main square. There is a good kitchen and a TV area and computer to use. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The bathrooms could have been cleaner. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good value for hostels in Oaxaca!


This is a good hostel, clean, friendly and helpful. They did mess up my private room reservation for the first night, but made it up with a discount, and only person in a dorm. Met some good people there, good social environment not too mellow not wild party eother. Enjoyed my stay there. Recommended.

This place is very cozy and the staff is very helpfull!


Excellent hostel. Location is just a little bit away from everything but not too far. Nice market close-by. Breakfast not the best but the price is right. Fantastic staff. We were there when it was quiet but it looks like it would be fun when it's busy. Kitchen is well equipped. Free water which is always nice. Definitely recommend.


they suggested us a tour and taxi that charged us the doble price for their service. When we asked them how could we get to Pochutla they offered us "the best service, the best price, and the best quality" to our surprise the little Van that came to pick us up charged us $60 more p/per., our luggage did not fit, so they put it up on the roof (and it was raining) and they gave us the worst sits of all; our legs could not even fit properly in the sit and the driver was very rude to us...


The hostel is in an ok spot, very close to a mercado where you can get fresh fruits and stuff. Better than the hostel breakfast by far! The staff is not very friendly to be honest, they wanted to charge us more than the website said. Leaving your backpacks costs extra. There are only two showers for girls and two for men which can get pretty crowded
