    Amazing hostel! Super clean, the comfiest bed in all of Mexico, good showers, decent wifi. Lovely leafy courtyard, rooftop for yoga, and small but well equipped guest kitchen. The staff really make this place though; all incredibly positive, friendly, social and helpful. Would absolutely stay here again!

    I loved my stay at Hostal Central. The security, the beds, the atmosphere, and the staff are all awesome. The breakfast is really good too. The staff are so helpful in everything and are genuinely caring. If there is a problem with something you only need to let them know and they will have it fixed very quickly. It is close to the centro and easy to get to. I would love to stay here again!

    This hostel was honestly one of my favorite parts about Oaxaca. :) The team here is absolutely incredible and their positive energy is contagious. Well informed about events in the area and will bend over backward to help with accommodations and travel questions. Plus PING PONG! Can’t recommend enough, will miss it greatly and already looking forward to coming back. Stop reading reviews and book already!! :)

    Hostal Central is a beautiful hostel and I would most definitely stay there again. The staff were so lovely and knowledgable about their gorgeous city and the location is perfect. Rosa makes your bed for you every single day and cooks a killer breakfast. The rooms were big and the beds comfy plus the bathrooms were really nice as well.

    Best hostel in all of Mexico, let me tell you. The excellent: the breakfast (different every day of our 6-day stay!), the cleanliness (they make your beds every morning!), the STAFF (so friendly, so helpful; Katja and Mats and Jamie were especially awesome and just created such a special atmosphere). The great: the common spaces. The pretty good: the location—you're a bit of a walk from the main square BUT it's so nice as it's quiet at night. We'd go back in a heartbeat and highly recommend!
