It's basically a hotel and hostel in one, for those seeking a party atmosphere this isn't the place. It's a very chilled out vibe which is perfect for me and why I rated them high. It's a 15 minute walk to the zocalo and the park right outside always has something going on and the BEST street food vendor in Oaxaca! The place is EXTREMELY clean which was very nice.


One night I have to change beds because someone was slept in mine, the staff didn't do anything, just say to take another bed. but the others were occupied to, so it was a mix o beds and people.

it is as advertised a hostel/hotel but the rooms were great very comfortable beds and clean.staff just need to interact more with the guests but that is a minor thing,I found it easy to navigate the city and close to the ADO a bonus ..


my stay at this hostel was a lot of fun. it is very clean and has greatly maintained facilities. at the breakfast table you will be served one portion only, which for me was kind of tiny... staff is actually very helpful. except for the last guy, who totally ripped me off and sold me a bus ticket to San Jose del Pacifico with taxi service to the bus station for 160 MXP. while the bus ticket is normally only 95 MXP and the station in walking distance. so this part was really annoying...


Hostel was really clean. Felt like a hotel. Lots of showers and toilets so no worries about sharing or waiting in line. Breakfast was legit- something hot, freshly cooked, and Mexican style every morning. About 15 min walk from the zocalo. Pretty quiet atmosphere. Staff was helpful. Would stay here again/recommend


Located close to the Ado bus station (500m), short walk to Zocalo (1600m). Lots of showers (hot good pressure) and toilets always clean. Locked door to get into hostel, room and small lockers in room. 10 bed male dorm no ceiling fans but a/c at request. Staff friendly. Great breakfast included differen basic Mexican meal everyday (beans cheese tortilla, tamale etc) tea, coffee, toast, cereal REAL FRUIT LOOPS! Cool little terrace (closes 9:30 tho) and couch/TV areas. Very empty no hostel vibe :(


Modern and nice hostel with big, comfortable beds and big rooms. It’s really clean, there’re a lot of showers and breakfast is great! We enjoyed the television and the balcony. Unfortunately the common area (the roof top) is closing at 10 and there is not really a place to go afterwards without irritating people who are watching television or using the computers.


This hostel is centrally located close to the ADO station and the main sites of Oaxaca. Facilities were clean, rooms were well outfitted with reading lights, electrical sockets and lockers. With a fantastic rooftop sitting area there was a great social atmosphere.


It's like a hotel with dorms, is extremely clean, safe, staff is kind and environment very bored and quiet. Facilities are good, with kitchen and fridge at the rooftop, unfortunately they close there even before 11 pm! Anyway, I had a good time there. Thank you!


Very nice colonial building, spacious, well organised very nice, charming, clean place. Highly recommended


All around a nice hostel: very clean, comfortable beds, good breakfast. Complaints: spotty Wi-Fi (although they're trying to fix it) and they close the outdoor patio hangout area/kitchen to early.
