Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

Very much enjoyed our stay at casa angel. The private room we stayed in was basic but clean and comfortable. Great facilities, free wifi and very friendly staff made the hostel great. Location was good - close to town. BBQ and beers on the rooftop on Sunday nights was a great way to meet fellow travellers. Overall, a fantastic hostel.

Very clean, well run hostel with great amenities. The staff was attentive and friendly, the internet was fast along with the three extra computers available, the roof was fantastic, the shared room I stayed in was perfectly adequate for anyone that is just using it to sleep in, breakfast was great, and most importantly, Oaxaca is dope.

I was at this hostel by myself. After attending to a friend`s wedding I really wanted to get to know Oaxaca in 4 days! So i wanted something cheap and comfortable. The dorms are super clean, as well as the bathrooms. One of the cleanest hostels I`ve ever been to!! You can have your locker, to put your valuables, just be sure to take a lock from home. They served breakfast from 8 to 10! Perfect for me because even though I don`t eat eggs, they had cereal, bananas, juice, milk and coffee. I`m not of a high profile traveler, so this was nice because in case you want to socialize they have events going on every afternoon and night in the terrace or movie night and everyone is super friendly, but in case u prefer not being bother and just do your own thing, like me, you can just pass as if your where in a normal hotel. I will certainly go back and recommend this place! Location is good just 3 blocks from downtown and like 5 from the zocalo.

I stayed at the Casa Angel hostel for a few nights. I booked a single room but due to lack of availability they moved me on my own to the dorm room, which they did warn me about beforehand. The room was very small and I must say I cannot imagine being there with 2 more people as there would be basically no place to breathe. It also did not have a proper window as the only tiny window in the room was coming out onto the corridor area which meant you always had to have the curtain down and there was no light in the room apart from a small lamp in the ceiling plus personal lights above the bed.
The rest of the place is nice, the shower is clean and has good water pressure, the terrace is a great place to hang out.
There is also a kitchen area downstairs where breakfast is served in the morning, however it also does not have any natural light and does not feel cosy.

This place is ideally located with lovely clean dorms and very helpful staff. Wi fi and free breakfast included. Try and book a space at the rear of the hostel as the front can be very noisy due to traffic and party revellers on the main road.its only a 10 min walk to the ado bus station also.

This is the best hostel I have ever stayed at.

It is extremely clean and secure. The staff and guests are very friendly and it's easy to socialise.

I stayed in a 4 bed mixed dorm and it was great, the rooms aren't right next to the communal areas do its easy to sleep.

The breakfast is good too.

Casa Angel is awesome! It's extremely clean, great location, and the staff is really helpful. The breakfast is better than most hostels with sweet mexican ladies cooking huevos for you. Great rooftop! Make sure you reserve in advance, they book up, and that way you don't have to change rooms during your stay.
