    I stayed at La Villada for two weeks and was very impressed. I had stayed in central Oaxaca for the month before I arrived, and being up in the hills was a very pleasant change. The fresh air and views were lovely, as were Julieta and her family and staff. Everyone was welcoming and very helpful, and the food was great. Getting to the city and surrounding areas was also very easy and affordable. I highly recommend La Villada!

    La Villada is the perfect cozy getaway. We got a room upgrade from a bunk to a private room, which was very spacious! Between the pool, hammocks, and looking at the scenery we didn’t want to leave. However, the family who owns the resort gave us some excellent recommendations on places to visit and helped us find our way. They were beyond friendly and helpful. It is a little out of the way from the center of town, but the view and atmosphere makes it worth it.

    The hostel is nice, the rooms are spacious and don't get too warm so you can still get a good nights rest. The main area has a large pool and hammocks and seats everywhere, ideal for spending a lazy day at the pool. The kitchen is open from 8 till 20, the food is inexpensive and pretty good. I ended up eating there most evenings. Juliet and her staff though, they are the reason you should stay here. They are amazing and really made me feel at home, I really enjoyed my time there.

    Beautiful facilities. Great cooking from the onsite restaurant. Lovely owners with a great sense of humour and a genuine interest in making your stay good. I can’t say enough good things about this place. It is a five minute cab ride into town. I’m travelling by motorcycle - they offered me a room I could bring my bike right next to, which is great. The space is beautiful, and, as I say, the cooking is great. Self serve beer fridge saves annoying trips to the Oxxo. I would stay again for sure.

    I stayed here 2 nights with my boyfriend. It's a bit outside the city but the view is awesome. As is the pool. The family that runs it are really nice and helpful. Unfortunately we got food poisoning from a restaurant and had to spent the next day in bed. At some point one the ladies brought us soup so we'd get better soon. The only downside was there was no one else which is a shame cos this is the perfect hostel to just chill and hangout by the pool. There's also cold beer in the fridge.

    Very Good

    La villada is in such a beautiful area and has so much potential. Unfortunately the upkeep isn’t what it could be. The rooms were pretty dirty and smelled extremely strongly of mold. The food was pretty below average for Oaxaca with few options. Unfortunately there aren’t close restaurants so this is the only option for food. The view is spectacular and the pool is really nice, but it seemed too cloudy to swim in so nobody used it. The area and standing water contribute to many mosquitoes

    Here are the pros and cons of Villada: Pros- Friendly staff Great views and relaxed atmosphere Big rooms (I had a private ensuite) Reasonably priced food Nice fresh air in the hills Lady who runs it speaks good English and is informative Great suggested tour Cons- I didn't have hot water in my room No fan in my room No screens on the windows Nowhere close to eat out Seemed like it was half kept up (dust on shelves, upstairs in restaurant was scattered with things)
