The hostel is very clean, brand new, and very central. Depending on when you go, it can be pretty weird too. I arrived there on Thursday and was the only guest there. It really felt like being in a hospital.. The next day few more people arrived and it felt a bit more like a youth hostel. I thought about...

Clean + comfortable + charming + spacious... these are just some of the qualities this hotel has to offer. Its located only a few blocks from the main square.. Don't miss out the roof top and the breakfast!!! Private rooms available, but even shared rooms were fine as people were super cool.

Best low budget option in town, clean and polite with a great breakfast. You can get a dorm room for just two and pay a slight premium. Te street is a bit noisy so try and grab a room on the inside courtyard.

I loved staying in this hostal. It's extremely clean, friendly, the location is perfect, and breakfast is amazing. We stayed there four nights during the Guelaguetza and it was one of the best places to stay, It's definitely worth staying there!

The cleaner and nicest hostel in Oaxaca. you can rent full rooms or just a bed. They clean the bathrooms three of four times a day and the breakfast chef is an artist and cooks just delicious. A must to stay here.

Cons: No airflow in the rooms (and no...

We didn't really spend much time in the hostel. But we were happy with the excellent laundry service, clean rooms, hot shower, big breakfast and friendly personnel who answered our questions. There is a free internet access. We also liked the possibility to store our luggage for a day before leaving on the nightbus.

We stayed here for 2 nights in January. It was a private room and although bare bones, it was clean and spacious. Our problem was the bathrooms - only one of the female showers had hot water and the toilets were not often cleaned. The male bathroom showers were not much better, one had a door missing, so basically unusable...

The place is clean, the breakfasts are pretty good and has free internet access all for a very low cost. There is also a rooftop area where you can get a 360 view of the city. Purchase beer at the front desk fridge and drink those beers on the rooftop after a long day of walking around the city. The...

Really clean but nothing more. Atmosphere like in an hospital. I was really disappointed because the guy at the reception sold me a tour for two times the normal price. I asked him if it was the cheapest but he probably preferred to receive his commission. I personnaly hate this way of doing business.
