“Nice and Confy Place”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

It was good for relaxing and visiting around! The beds are fine but not wonderful as thought as being orthopaedic and the only bad think is the lack of sockets in our room. 2 sockets for a 9 bedroom... so it was kind of a mess. The breakfast was really good with fresh orange juice. The hostal was 2 blocks for the zocalo and I liked it better since it wasn't really loud.

Room Tip: All rooms are quite the same

The hostel is very clean, brand new, and very central. Depending on when you go, it can be pretty weird too. I arrived there on Thursday and was the only guest there. It really felt like being in a hospital.. The next day few more people arrived and it felt a bit more like a youth hostel. I thought about moving to another hostel but bottom line - value for money - it's okay.

Clean + comfortable + charming + spacious... these are just some of the qualities this hotel has to offer. Its located only a few blocks from the main square.. Don't miss out the roof top and the breakfast!!! Private rooms available, but even shared rooms were fine as people were super cool.

Best low budget option in town, clean and polite with a great breakfast. You can get a dorm room for just two and pay a slight premium. Te street is a bit noisy so try and grab a room on the inside courtyard.

I loved staying in this hostal. It's extremely clean, friendly, the location is perfect, and breakfast is amazing. We stayed there four nights during the Guelaguetza and it was one of the best places to stay, It's definitely worth staying there!

The cleaner and nicest hostel in Oaxaca. you can rent full rooms or just a bed. They clean the bathrooms three of four times a day and the breakfast chef is an artist and cooks just delicious. A must to stay here.

Pros: Spacious rooms, impeccably clean, good beds and pillows, great breakfasts (coffee, cereal, eggs, fruit, yogurt,etc), nice little pond and courtyard, nice terrace especially around sunset, located near the markets and zocalo so easy walking to most places, super hot showers (although you have to let the water run for a while).

Cons: No airflow in the rooms (and no vents, aircon, or fans available) so you have to be creative with door/window opening. Located on a loud corner, although rooms are pretty sound proof. They do cleaning and renovations during the middle of the day so siesta is not much of an option. Staff nice but not very helpful.
Also this place isn't cute or have much personality, but for a couple of days its fine.
