I had a wonderful experience here, the hostess was wonderful, very friendly and always happy to help out with advise about the city . The accommodation itself was very clean and comfortable. The hostel is located in a very peaceful area making it easy to relax.


Lovely place with great facilities and awesome views. Very tranquil as it is out of town a bit which was a welcome change for me. Thanks for a great stay!!


From Australian dudes: La Villada is a pretty epic joint tucked away in the hills looking over the city and epic mountains. It's a 50 peso/5 minute cab into the central strip


Julietta and her brother were lovely, welcoming and chatty. They shared some Mexican liquor with me which was really nice. I loved the NZ mural on the wall and that the family help run the place. The location and facilities were great! Luxurious and out of the main city. Food was great! Some suggestions for other travellers - be sure you know where it is, taxi drivers may struggle. You can also take a local bus into the city for a lot cheaper than taxis - if you are up for the challenge.


Very nice Hostel!!! Great view of the Oaxaca city!!! Good food in restaurante!!! Near downtown, nice people, and very cheap!!! Swimming pool a little durty, but nothing desgusting... Very good to rest IF YOU ARE NOT IN SUMMER VACATIONS!!! Because in summer vacations the hostel guest a groups with very young and noisely teenageers...

I really wanted to like this place, but my room had cockroaches. Huge ones. The location is beautiful and the staff very friendly, but I had to buy bug spray so my room always smelled toxic, there were dead bugs lying around and I was wary of sleeping in the room because of the fumes.

The Hostel was in a pleasant location in a semi-rural location BUT extremely difficult to find. We arrived late at night in our own vehicle guided by a hand held I-phone GPS and we were still going around in circles trying to find the place. They need to put up some large location signs in strategic points along the way pointing to the direction where they are. For this reeason we only stayed one night. It was too difficult to locate and took too long to get back into the Centro district

This place is a wee slice of paradise! Placed over looking the hills it's a fantastic get away from the city hustle bustle. It is situated out of the city centre but for 50peso's you can easily get a taxi to town. Staff speak little English but are more than happy to help. The owner speaks flaunt English and is a great help with things to do and see in oaxaca. We extended our stay at this beautiful place and swam everyday. Would highly recommend...
