    One of the best hostels we have stayed in, ever. The staff couldn’t have been any more helpful and will definitely return if we return back to Oaxaca! We’ll be recommending to anyone heading there :)

    Nice place to stay in Oaxaca. Not too far from the Zocalo. The staff let me keep my stuff there the whole day when I had a night bus and even helped me look for my jacket when I lost it. 10/10 would stay again :)

    Hostel central is really nice! Close to the zocalo, supermarket and ATM. The staff were accommodating when we told them we had been sick in Mexico City and were still recovering, offered to go and get anything from the market for us and if we needed any medicines. The staff were all friendly and most spoke good English. It was quiet when we were there so wasn’t too much of an atmosphere but that was good for us since we needed the chill time!! Free water and a simple breakfast! Thank you

    Nice hostel to explore Oaxaca from, mattresses are very comfy, staff are lovely, breakfast is a different Mexican dish every day, rooms can get a little hot and the bunks are quite short so not a lot of space but really not that big of an issue. About a 3-5 min walk to the main square and easy to get to anywhere in Oaxaca quickly, very close to the market and an easy bus ride to the ADO station.

    Very nice place. A little noisy in the front dorm so bring earplugs. The staff however is fantastic. They are very compassionate and did all they could to help me recover a bag I lost. We also had a Game of Thrones watch party which was a lot of fun. The food the other travelers made was excellent as well. If I was back in Oaxaca I would stay here again.

    Nice hostel located about a 10 minute walk from the Zocalo. Clean with good facilities. Social enough hostel. Rooms get really hot meaning you have to leave windows open and I got ravaged by mosquitos. They don't have 24hr reception which I wasn't aware of and thus couldn't retrieve my deposit for the key when I had to leave for an early bus. Otherwise no complaints
