    The perfect hostel (we stayed in the dble room). Best location, clean, comfy bed, free water and working wifi. Enough space in the room for all your things and was also styled very cutely. All the basic amenities you need to have a home away from home, whilst exploring the wondrous Oaxaca!

    This is s fantastic place to stay. The location couldn’t be any better. Easy walk to everything. The staff don’t speak English but that didn’t stop them from sorting out a small hiccup in our travel plans. The facility is beautiful and one of the cleanest hostels I’ve ever stayed in. This is not a party hostel. It’s quiet and comfortable after a long day touring the valley. And plenty of hot water. I would highly recommend this place for any age traveler.

    I truly adore this hostel. Location is great, breakfast is light and yummy, beds are comfy and the place is clean and safe. I came back to Don Alvaro on 3 seperate occasions because of Mari. Mari is an amazing person who made my stay there wonderful. She deserves a raise! She is the kindest and hard working women i had the pleasure of meeting. Gracias mari!! ♥️

    Clean. Elegant. Great location. The roof deck is great. The staff is very nice and helpful. The atmosphere isn't very social. It's more a place to sleep then go out and explore Oaxaca.

    Located in the centre but quiet at night. No common areas to sit around and meet others. Breakfast was included which was not expected.

    Great location! Staff super friendly and helpful but they don’t speak English. Rooms are really clean and cleaned daily before new arrivals. Only downfall is they don’t have a kitchen to make or store food. It was quite quiet but it’s getting to low season

    The location of the hostel is amazing, a short easy from everything. Marie the host is the cutest lady, she doesn’t speak English but uses google translate and takes the time to learn everyone’s name. Hostel is basic but clean, and includes a breakfast of cereal and fruit. I was in an 8 dorm which was nice and airy, bed was comfy and the atmosphere was super chilled; not a party hostel which was perfect for me.

    Very Good

    Cute little place, a walk away from center. Not really a hostel, more like a hotel, which is fine if you don’t mind being woken up by a screaming toddler. The room itself is lovely, probably the most comfortable bed we’ve slept on in 5 months of months. However, there is no fan and the window is tiny, so not much of a breeze on a hot night. There was no hot water in the day time and no water at all night. Couldn’t even flush the toilet.

    When we arrived the receptionist didn't know we had a reservation. She spoke to me in a condescending tone, and was not hospitable, as previous reviews had stated. Perhaps, she was a different receptionist? Other than this, she gave us a key to our own private bathroom, but when we went to use it, there was someone else using it. In addition, we took a shower around 8 am and the water was freezing cold even after turning the hot knob on for 5 minutes. There are better options for the same price
