The regular price is cheaper onsite then when you make a reservation through the website (140/125 pesos). In the 8 beddorm (1st floor), you are right next to the boy toilets and get the smell up to your room everytime someone goes in. The hostel charges you for after check-in use of the facilities : 10 pesos to leave your suitcase a few hours. And 25 pesos to use wifi / bathroom / kitchen ! Showers are not hot, just warm. Breafast was complete but served late : 8:30am and not 8am as said

Only ONE bathroom (shower and toilet) for the hostel, everyone could see inside the private room we booked, we had no more intimacy than the dorm altought it was more expensive. You have to pay to leave your luggage which is not normal for a hostel. After travelling more than 6 months in central and south america, one of the worst hostel and most expensive, very bad price quality ratio... I have seen worse but they were much more cheaper. Breakfast and staffl was good !

Location is near a Main Street, some noise is audible, if you are a light sleeper, Ear plugs did the trick, to drown the noise out. Very helpful and professional staff !

Everything about this place is perfect for a backpacker. The rooms shred rooms are not overfilled with bed and all open out on to the common area. The outdoor/common area is lovely and inviting with everything you could need, tv, computer, comfortable couches and lots of power points to charge you electronic whilst you are relaxing. It is set up in a way that it makes it very easy to meet people. Breakfast is large and filling, traditional Mexican food. Showers are warm clean.

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.

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.
