I travelled to Mexico with my two daughters, ages 4 and 6, and my parents, who are in their 60s, and for our stay in Oaxaca I chose this hostel based on their website and Tripadvisor reviews. The front desk staff was excellent--were friendly and helpful and spoke very good English. They set us up with inexpensive tours of the...

This hostel was not a bad hostel to stay in if you want a clean nice hostel. However we found a more lively hostel the day after we arrived in Oaxaca and moved hostels. The main problem I had with the hostel was no hot water and the womens bathrooms drainage did not work which was not great. The location...

This a very nice hostel, althought a litle bit too expensive ( 150 pesos per night ), but the rooms were clean, the beds very comfortable, the breakfast delicious, the staff way too helpful. I couldn´t ask for more. Oaxaca city is one of THE MOST beautiful cities in Mexico, you just have to go. I have an amazing time,...

I can't fathom why others didn't like it. This place is awesome, I've stayed twice so far, and though it may be on a street, this is Mexico, where noise is the norm. Its immaculate, almost enough to eat off the floors, and only two blocks from the zocalo in Oaxaca. If you want dumpy atmosphere, go around the corner...

Where do i start!!! Absoloutley no atmosphere whats so ever. The private room we stayed in was a dorm room anyway, with no bathroom! Backed on to a very noisy street and on the otherside a fountain that is guaranteed to keep you awake all night. The first hostel, hotel or campsite i have ever stayed in that does not...

I just got back from 4 nights at the Hostel Paulina. I agree with the previous review that it is a bit institutional and impersonal. But, it was clean and had a nice central garden off the dining room area. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was included and consisted of fruit/muesli/yoghurt, toast, eggs, coffee, juice. Pretty...

“Ask for a room father away from the street - there is some traffic noise. The 2nd or 3rd floor may be quieter than the 1st.”
