Casa Angel Youth Hostel
Ranked #1 of 117 Speciality Lodging in Oaxaca
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 April 2013

Facilities were all well maintained, and staff were friendly and helpful, they know a lot about goings on in the area and are happy to share their knowledge. You can buy booze on the premises as well which is always handy (although slightly more expensive than buying your own and pooling your resources). The hostel was quite quiet when I was there - perhaps it's a quieter place in general. Didn't stop me from meeting some good people and having a good time, or lessen the positive experience. The staff are lenient on noise as long as you aren't bothering anyone. All round good'un but nothing exceptional.

I arrived at the hostel at 6:30am after getting a night bus and was told that I couldn’t check in until 8pm. This was a bit annoying as all I wanted to do was sleep but they let me use the computers until then, which was nice. I stayed in the large dorm, which was fine because there where only 2 others staying in there at the time, but I can imagine if it was full it would be a bit manic. The beds were clean and comfy, although you did have to make your own bed. The terrace is really nice but you are only allowed up there until 11pm because of the noise- fair enough I guess, but I was up there with 3 other people having a quiet drink and I thought it was a bit unnecessary for them to move us to the downstairs communal area, which was nowhere near as nice to hang out. The bathrooms were very clean and the showers the perfect temperature. Oh and the breakfast is brilliant!

Great place to unwind. Guys that work here are friendly, socialable, and dont rule with an iron fist, like some.

Amazing roof terrace to chill out on.

Rooms are good. Each bed has a reading lamp, so nice to lay n not wake everyone up with the room light.

Bathroom shower is only 0800-1000 and 2000-2200 but that isnt a huge deal.

Breakfast is brilliant, eggs made to order, bread, juice, cereal.

Id recommend anyone to stat here

I stayed only one night, actually I got there very late at night and went straight to bed. One thing I noticed was that there is only hot water from 8 to 10 in the morning and at night otherwise you have to request hot water. I thought o would have to fight for the shower but not at all and the restrooms and showers were very clean. They have two nice local ladies who make breakfast for you [Sausage omelette, cereal, orange juice, coffee]. The location seemed to be very safe and it is a short walk to the Zocalo, about 15 minutes. The price is fair and the staff was great and very helpful.

Location: Within walking distance of Central Oaxaca's attractions and a half a block from a local market. Cleanness: from the shared bathrooms, to the kitchen, to the common areas this place is kept clean all day long. Staff: The staff is well informed and helped me with everything from where to go eat, what to see, the name of a dentist to where to learn Spanish. I came for a few days and stayed for weeks.

Room Tip: I liked the four bed dorm the best, more room then the three and less crowded than the twelve bed on...

This place ticked all the boxes (location, price, vibe) but it still just felt a bit off. It was great for what it was but it wasn't one of those hostels that you fall in love with and never want to leave. Two huge pluses here are that it was immaculately clean and the breakfast is quite nice. The ladies will cook you two eggs your way and serve them to you nice and hot. Rest of breakfast is passable bread, jam, margarine, bananas, juice and coffee. Given that its included in the price though, it's a real deal.

The rooftop terrace is really nice and great place to have a few drinks, enjoy their weekend BBQ or read a book during the peak of the day. This place does front a busy-ish street, so expect to hear cars, etc from any room on the front.

Staff were okay, with some better than others. Also weird is that the staff tend to dominate the one communal area for watching tv, making it a bit awkward to spend any time there. However, we met great people here so any shortfall with staff was up for by the rest. Again, I feel like I should be raving about this place but it just was missing something for me that I can't quite place. Definitely recommend though as its great value for the price.
