Really fantastic. Just want to stay another night! The dorm can be a bit noisy with traffic, but its very comfortable and good value. Sleep wasn't an issue for me. Great staff who are always happy to help and flexible. Oh and a nice breakfast in the mornings and good quality WiFi.

Host Guillermo and his delightful staff made a big contribution to a wonderful week in Oaxaca city. Our room was kept immaculate, healthy breakfasts (included) were always provided with smiles and friendly chat. It seemed that any time we needed anything one of the staff would be there with suggestions, directions and information. The most friendly staff we have experienced in many years.

Room Tip: Room with bath definitely worth the extra pesos.

Hostel Casa Del Sol is a fantastic place to stay.

We stayed in a private room with ensuite which was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The courtyard was also beautiful and a good spot to chat to other guests.

The staff were friendly and helpful and even put on face painting, mescal and hot chocolate for the Day of the Dead.

Would definitely recommend this place to other travellers.

Hello Darwin! We are satisfied that your stay in Casa del Sol had been pleasant. We tried to share with you a small flavor taste of "the day of the dead". We hope to host you in another oaxacan festivity. The most important fou us is work with quality of service and show our traditions. Best

My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights whilst staying in Oaxaca and loved it! The room was beautiful and spacious with a private ensuite. Guillermo as well as other guests in the hotel were welcoming, helpful, and friendly. One guest even cooked dinner for everyone in the hostel that night ! The hostel is located in a great spot within walking distance of everything. Wifi was great which is a plus in Mexico and the cleanliness is incredible! One of the best hostels I would definetely stay here again!

I haven't had great dorm experiences in my lifetime but this hostel was very different. We walked in just before reception closed and Jaime welcomed us with a great smile and answered all our questions and provided us with great information on the town and sights. This is the cleanest hostel I have ever seen. The staff here are all incredibly helpful, hard workers who will do whatever they can to accommodate you. They also offer breakfasts, tours and transfers to the coast, which we took. It's also very conducive to socialising as they have a lovely courtyard but its never loud. Would highly recommend this place.

Guillermo and his helpful staff run a wonderful hostel. I've stayed here in a room and in the beautiful spacious colonial dormitory for 2 weeks in 2012 and 2 weeks in 2011 while attending Spanish school. The woman's bathroom is always clean, lovely courtyard strewn with flower petals (wich are attentively swept up in the afternoons!). Great location in the center of the zona historica. A highlight last year was playing violin for Guillermo and his parents in the afternoon. Travelling alone, I've always felt safe and comfortable here. With all the good reviews, I hope it won't be full when I return! Gracias Guillermo and all your staff.

Room Tip: Dorm rooms face the street and are a little noisier, but the dormatory is beautiful with great light...

We stayed in the chocolate room which is the only room that has an ensuite bathroom. It was spacious and comfortable, and wifi worked perfectly. Breakfast is included (fruit and toast with tea coffee and juice). Location is great, not far from the bus station or the main sights. Great value too compared to other hotels in the area. Staff is very nice and happy to help and asking for feedback for improvements which is a good sign. One thing to mention about the chocolate room is that it has no windows but just a front door, which leads out into the courtyard. It did not bother us and we left the door open most of the time but it may bother others so mentioning it here. The other rooms have a split door so you can close the door or privacy but leave the top part open for air and light (perhaps one day the chocolate room can get this too?).
