I wish I had a lifetime to spend wandering the streets of Oaxaca and coming back to my cozy home at this hostel. I came during a very busy holiday week in Oaxaca, and therefore had to try my luck at many places over my one week stay in the city, but I wish I would have spent them all... More

Esteban is the best owner of hostel that I've met in my trip. I was in Oaxaca for "los dias de los muertos"; Esteban offered to all guests a good tipica traditional meal. The hostel is really clean, there's a good vibe and the owner is helpful. The Esteban's mom is super amazing!

The best of this hostel is the people who run it. They are very pleasant. The hostel has stained glasses and pictures, is full of colour. Also has many hamacas in the rooftop, when you can drink, make grill, chill out... The prices are very economic.

It's very clean, cool roof terrace with hammocks and they play good music... More

I feel that some of the reports on here regarding cleanliness and security are a bit unjustified. This place is by no means the cleanest, but it's not that bad. There are lockers for keeping your things safe too, and they bar the front entrance every night at 8pm. They have a family run atmosphere, with every member of the... More
