Property Description

Our Hostal makes it easy to base yourself in the city while you meet a wonderful network of travelers from every corner of the world who share a common love, adventure.

Located in the downtown's west side, its so easy to see Oaxaca happening all around you. With the hostel's location at just two blocks from a World Heritage architectural wonder and across the park to a traditional Oaxaqueño market, the experience of life in this little city becomes very palpable while staying with us.
Close by: a couple WIFI enabled coffee shops, small and inexpensive food vendors, physical activities like Boxing, Taw Kwan Do, Yoga and a Latin Rhythms studio, reliable drop off laundry services, traditional haircut parlors, super cheap 'colectivo' style taxi services that go to all the little pueblos around and last but certainly not least, the infamous Central de Abastos market, the biggest one in the state, home to enormous and varied sections of all things Oaxaca: clay pottery, textile goods, esoteric and holistic products, fish and seafood, Oaxacan breads, cheese, exotic fruits, flowers, Mezcal, coffee and chocolate.
And for the nigh time, being the biggest agave producing state has its perks as nightlife in Oaxaca is all about Mezcal and fun long nights. Join us on a nightly pregame in our Hostel Garden Area and then later relax in one of our comfy dorms as you prepare for another daytime adventure.

    Small but lovely hostel, nice comfy common areas to meet other guests in and the breakfast changes everyday! The beds are made everyday and the rooms were kept neat, mattresses are so comfy too. Location is great as its close to laundry services, main square and markets. Loved all the staff and all the helpful tips on what to visit in the city. Will totally stay again!

    The hostel overall was really good; my only complaint is the lack of toilets/bathrooms but it was definitely manageable.

    Fantastic hostal. Staff were amazing and were active and brought travelers with them around the city/ at night sometimes. Breakfasts were actually good food. Close to the zócalo. Really nice community spaces that encouraged mingling without a bar. Only con was that the bottom sheet always came off the beds at night. Would certainly stay again.

    Breakfast is great. Most staff are volunteers or inexperienced. They were nice but lacking some information about town. I found the beds a bit uncomfortable and shaky. Onñy few bathrroms. It's a bit of a walk from town but for the money you pay it's very good.
