    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!! :)

    Staff very friendly and regularly went over and beyond expectations. Very clean. The breakfasts were delicious, traditional and different everyday. Location worked well. Very safe and about a 4 or 5 block walk to the center for museums, sites, buses etc.

    The best Hostel I have stayed in Mexico. The owner Jaime and the volunteers Kathi, Tal and Jannik are super welcoming and helpful. I had some problems and they helped me with everything. And Kathi was showing me around in the market close by. You can feel and see that this Hostel is run by people who love their Job. Also the breakfast is excellent. And they clean the room everyday and change the sheets. All in all just great. Thanks, Christoph

    The staff at this hostal is very welcoming! I arrived ill with a cold and they gave me vitamins and told me to help myself to the fresh herbs growing there for herbal tea. The breakfast is delicious. It’s very clean. You can cook your own food or there in the hostal kitchen, or the staff will recommend restaurants. There are nice common areas to socialize at this hostal. The only drawback to this hostal is that it’s positioned in front of a fairground that blasts music. It stops at 11 though.
