    Everything here was amazing! Breakfast is the best I’ve had in a hostel, staff is very helpful, it’s very clean, and security couldn’t be better. Only complaint that I have is when at 6:11 am I went in the kitchen to microwave hot water, I was told by a staff member, “kitchen doesn’t open until 7, bro.” It didn’t sound professional, at all, and where in the hell else am I supposed to get drinkable water at that hour? If it’s closed, he shouldn’t be doing his homework on a food counter.

    This was a great hostel to stay in. I stayed here for Día de los Muertos, and it had a great social atmosphere. The staff was incredibly helpful and was very quick to fix any problems that would arise. They also knew all the great spots to eat and could really show you what Oaxaca has to offer outside of dwelling in the city. Great vibes and great staff. Oh yeah, they also make you breakfast every morning. A truly wonderful experience. I hope to return someday soon.

    Really had a nice stay here. I like how there is a communal space where everyone can interact and eat together. Also, love the movie nights. Extra points for the friendliest and most helpful staff.
