    One of the best hostels I have stayed in. The atmosphere is simply amazing all thanks to Erika and the wonderful volunteers. I really loved the way they helped me find an accommodation when it was peak season and the hostel got overbooked. The breakfast is so good, and it is very different than what you get in other hostels - different each day. I would love to come back to this hostel if I return to Oaxaca.

    Really great hostel in Oaxaca. Super nice staff, comfy beds, good breakfast, great location. Only thing I didn't like was the fact there were only few bathrooms available. Even so, I would definitely stay again.

    There were a few extremely helpful and really lovely locals / Mexican folks working at the hostel, who made our stay worthwhile. However, the bathrooms were quite dirty, the showers didn't work well, and there were quite a few foreign staff who didn't speak much or any Spanish and seemed very confused the entire time. Also, it was extremely loud during the night from road from cars passing by and the hostel was quite a bit further from the main drags on quiet roads than we had expected.

    Beds well really dated and uncomfortable, the rooms got hot as there's no fan. The shower was the worst I had in Oaxaca both times I could only brush my teeth. And don't do the agua tour unleash you speak fluent Spanish the guide didn't even try to help us explain anything just told us how long we had in each place. And they take you to places to buy sh#$ you never need or want, really wasted our day.
