Hostal Casa del Sol Oaxaca
Ranked #8 of 123 Speciality Lodging in Oaxaca
Reviewed 21 July 2013

i stayed here for 3 nights and had a lovely visit. the staff was extremely generous, welcoming, and helpful throughout the entire stay. i can't say enough kind words about them. the hostal is in the perfect location, a short walk from all of the central attractions, but far enough away for it to be quiet and peaceful for sleeping. the room itself was very cozy, comfortable, and spacious. my only complaint is that the shared bathroom (which was very clean) was on the other side of the courtyard from my room. i would highly recommend this place to anyone on a budget who wants a comfortable private room but is ok with a shared bath. i would definitely stay here again.

We came here after reading all the great reviews about this place here on Tripadvisor, and we were not let down. The place is beautiful, our room was big and clean, the shared bathrooms (at least the girls' one) were the neatest and cleanest we'd ever seen at a hostel, the staff is so helpful and friendly, the breakfast is great and so is the location. And all of this to a great price. Recommended!

Wonderful staff, impeccably clean accommodations, and a peaceful vibe makes this place fantastic! I stayed while studying Spanish in Oaxaca and I could not have been happier! Everyone is so kind and helpful and the common area is cozy and lends itself to getting to know other travelers. Gracias por un tiempo memorable!

Nearing the end of three months in Mexico and this has been my favourite stay. Tranquil atmosphere, beautiful courtyard, lovely friendly staff, good breakfast (and coffee), perfect location near Santo Domingo. I planned to spend three days, ended up there for 10. Stayed in the dorm but this didn't feel much like a hostel, such was the quality.

We were supposed to stay at Hostal Casa del Sol for three nights, but because of flight problems were only able to stay for one - and my boyfriend was sick that night too! But the folks at Hostal Casa del Sol were wonderful. They got our room ready even a little early, helped us find pharmacies and even a doctor, fed us tea, recommended tasty and close restaurants and were generally as nice and helpful as could be!

The Hostal itself is quiet and lovely, with very nicely decorated rooms and a great little courtyard. We had a private room and bathroom which was nice - I wish that there had been a window in our room, but I know that the design of these old houses doesn't allow for that, and it was still a great room, with by far the comfiest bed of our trip. I can't comment on the shared rooms, but I was very happy with our private room. And the location is really great, easy walking distance to all the main spots in town.

Overall I would (and have!) recommend this place to folks looking for a nice, affordable, low key place to stay. And I can't say enough nice things about the help from the staff there!

Good morning! Thank you for your comment. We know that your trip in Mexico it wasn`t very nice and unfortunately you couldn´t spend more time in Oaxaca due health problems. We hope your boyfriend is better and come back to Mexico soon and change your mind about our country and you can enjoy more your stay in the future. Warm regards from the hostal.

Nice interior design, impeccably clean, mellow and very friendly owner. Green and well kept courtyard. At first we were a little bit intimidated by the windowless room (chocolate room) but really it was not a problem - you can open the door to the courtyard if you want daylight and maybe the room stays cooler in this climate without the window anyway. The only thing the owner could be improve was breakfast (cereal and some pastry), e.g. offer fresh fruits. But other than that I would go visit it again.

I chose this hostal from the vibe and image that appears on their website.. it was just as it looked! Super mellow, very friendly and very beautiful space.. i stayed as a single woman in the mixed/co-ed dorm room with about 4 other guys and felt totally safe,, everyone is just doing their own thing, but it also feels like a mini-community..there are lockers in the rooms for each person's valuables..staff is super kind and lay out breakfast for you every day..
I will recommend this place to my friends and family..excellent little oasis in the city..
