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 ..


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.


This hostal is perfectly planned out, secure and very clean. The staff do their job alright. There were few other travelers when I was there, so not a good atmosphere. It's also a long walk to the zocalo (though there are buses across the park to the centre and the return bus stops in front). The staff wasn't very knowledgeable about local stuff but there is an excellent tourist office (SECUR) across the park.


The hostel is in a nice and clean shape. The location is alright, you have to walk a little to get to the Zócalo but it's not to long. The included breakfast was very good. The hostel is a 3 minute walk from the ado station which is convenient. What I missed was any type of athmosphere like you have in hostels. I don't mean party but social interaction somehow there where plenty of dorm rooms with one person. Felt like an anonymous hotel with no social athmosphere


WIFI WAS RUBBISH. The taps are very annoying and unhygenic. Otherwise a good hostel with a football table. The lady at reception was nice. Lacked atmosphere (empty rooms) but maybe we went at a quiet time.


The reason I gave a 'poor' rating for facilities was that the wifi would constantly go off, literally every few minutes, no matter if you were using their computers or your own device. Otherwise it was a safe place within walking distance of anything and really close to ADO bus station.
