I stayed at hostel Pochon for about 40 days. Only meant to be there for about a week but I quickly learned that Oaxaca in an amazing place with much to see and learn and this was a great inexpensive hostel. This hostel is one of the cleanest I've stayed at in my 4 months motorcycling around Mexico. They have...

Great personal hostel! It is located a bit out of the center, but the distance is no more than 10 minutes of walking to the main attractions. As others have said it is quite an old hostel, and especially the showers aren't the best. The beds are great though, breakfast is amazing. Different every day. When I was there there...

When we arrived, we were told that our room was unfortunately given to someone else. Luckily there was another double room available. The room was clean but due to the glass walls it can be a bit noisy. The rest of the facilities were mostly clean. Some bathrooms could have done with a more frequent cleaning. We didn't use the...

I lost my engagement ring in my room and the lovely ladies helped me look everywhere until I found it! The breakfast is free and simple but you...

Awesome hostel. Lovely atmosphere and great breakfast. Nice quiet area but close to everything. Everyone was most helpful. Easy to go on tours or travel onward as the hostel will arrange everything or point you in the right direction. We left some things behind accidentally and the staff found someone coming to same area and arranged to send on our...

The kitchen is dirty, furniture reaped, bedroom has a wall with glass opening on a common balcony, you better keep the curtains closed for privacy, hostal run by volunteers tourists considering the place as a vacation home talking and drinking without a thought for paying guests.No security at night.

Right across the street is a mercado that sells everything you could need along with food vendors through all hours of the day. It's nice because it is away from the center well enough that you can see a little different side of Oaxaca.

Really enjoyed my time here. Stayed for 2 nights but wish I could have stayed longer. The atmosphere is really relaxed, the staff is friendly and helpful, the facilities are clean, and the prices are low. Can highly recommend it!

it is a nice hostel, beds are comfy, hot shower,nice kitchen, nice common erea. The problems are that it is pretty far from the center(which is why it is in a good price),the shower and bathroom are not that nice. Lots of light early in the morning and the breakfast is not the best.
