    Incredible hostel, best staff, great value for money. The included breakfast is hearty and delicious. The owners organize free activities on most nights like mezcal tasting or free dinner. They really seem dedicated to offering an incredible experience to the guests. By far one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in.

    Amazing breakfast, a free dinner, and *super* welcoming and helpful staff. Made Oaxaca the best stop of my whole Mexico trip. Really can't praise it highly enough. I will remember the three days I spent there so fondly, and defnitely forever.

    Great hostel. It gives you exactly what you need from a hostel. Every dorm room only has three beds that are separated with a half-wall kind of thing that allows maximum privacy and comfort. The shared areas are comfy, breakfast is included and the staff is super helpful and friendly.

    Amazing hostel!! Such great value for money as you get an incredible breakfast made by a Oaxacan chef and most evenings they have something on such as mezcal tasting or pizza night (for free!). This also makes it very sociable and easy to meet people, highly recommend for solo travellers. The location is a short walk to the centre of Oaxaca and supermarket close by. They offer day tours at a decent price. Only thing to improve would be an extra bathroom as we had one between quite a few people.

    This hostel is very unique. The breakfast is huge and very delicious, probably the best you will find in México. The facilities have a great attention to detail and the staff is very helpful. They have daily free activities such as Mezcal tasting and dinner nights. Just make sure to not stay in the four-bed dorm on the second floor as it was so noisy. The traffic was terrible and cara started honking, people screamed and there was a music parade going on from 5am on. The other rooms were fine though.
