    Loved staying here. Great staff, comfy bed, perfect location. The breakfast was different and amazing each day. Every night there’s something different going on. Not a party hostel but an awesome family vibe.

    I did enjoy my stay at Hostal Central. The location is just a few minutes walking from the main square (zocalo). The place is well kept and clean. Cheers to Fabian, Isaac and Raul. Some of the collaborators were really nice (Kirsty, Maya and Kila). I would definitely recommend Hostal Central to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in Oaxaca de Juarez, Mexico.

    An incredible hostel! Feels like home. The physical space is great - clean & comfy rooms, courtyard with kitchen, dining room, cozy living room with sofas & desks, terrace and rooftop views. The atmosphere is what makes it outstanding - social without being overly party-focused. The breakfast is phenomenal and there are activities at the hostel (mezcal tasting, movie night, pizza night, etc) organized by the owners & volunteers most evenings. Thank you for creating such a wonderful space!

    Probably one of my favorite hostels in Mexico. The atmosphere is very chill yet they have activities planned every night so it’s very easy to meet people. The breakfast can’t be missed, it’s delicious and quite filling. The staff was great and the owners are often around and they were awesome. Beds are comfy and the hostel is clean. Loved this spot, I originally booked four nights and ended up staying for about a week and a half.

    Great place. Cool vibes, helpful staff and nice hostal events. Shower water pressure was kind of bad but really minor in the big picture. Would recommend.
