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!


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.


I highly recommend this hostel


Staff is very friendly and willing to help you in every possible way. Security is very good. Location is very convenient. Definitely recommend this place.

Nice and clean hostel. Location was ok, near ADO bus station.


This hostel has everything you need. Always clean, very comfortable. Sometimes no hot water unfortunately. Not the closest to the main sites and museums, but a short walk in a beautiful city. Across the road is a nice park with good street food. Long-distance bus station just 5 min walk. Breakfast included is way better than most hostels, cereal, toast, tea, coffee, juice, small amount of fruit plus eggs and beans with tortillas, or some days chilaquiles.
