    Perfect balance of a hostel. The free breakfast is varied and very good. Dorms are a little tight but the curtains give good privacy. Privates are brilliant value. All workers very sound and the cheap beers on the roof result in a very social atmosphere.

    The location is central to great food, markets, bars, clubs and tourist attractions. The beds are private with curtains and lockers, and no bunk beds is a plus! All of the amenities are great, but what makes this hostel is the people. The volunteers are super friendly and helpful, and the layout of the place makes it so easy to socialise and make friends. There is something fun to do every night. One of the best hostels we've stayed at in Mexico.

    Excellent hostel - one of the best at which I've ever stayed. Terrific location, delicious daily breakfast (shoutout to Tere), great atmosphere, lots of areas (including rooftop terrace) to mingle, tons of activities and helpful staff.

    Brilliant hostel, great for socialising but also quiet for a good night's sleep! Lovely space to hang out in, quirky and comfy dorms, and great staff too! Only criticism is that the included breakfast isn't until 9am, so if you want to make the most of the day you have to miss it. Would definitely stay again.

    By far my favorite hostel in Oaxaca. There are many lovely and well-equipped gathering spaces with different vibes but everything shuts down at 11pm which makes for a good night's sleep. The active whatsapp group means someone is always interested in going out or exploring, and the hostel has lots of helpful information regarding events and transportation in/around the city. Lots of bathrooms, a kitchen you can actually cook in, and pretty decent beds! I extended my stay and enjoyed every day.

    Nice hostel in a really good location and just a short walk to most bus stations. Great breakfast! The owner likes to silence guests with the redundant bell on the reception counter, but the rest of the staff are absolutely lovely.
