Helen Wombwell thinks…

"The staff were super friendly and helpful and the location was great, only a 10 minute walk from the main square. The terrace on the roof was really pretty and a nice place to relax."

Liked: It was nice enough, close enough and ticked all the other boxes but it still felt a bit off. Was very clean though which is a huge plus. Staff were hot and cold as some were way more attentive than others. Ladies beware, one of them is definitely a Romeo and will out the moves in you if you let him. Could be your thing but just putting the word out. Met some great travelers though so would stay again. Rooftop terrace is also wicked. Do the tour which takes you to the limestone waterfalls and bring your swimmers, you won't regret it!

Disliked: Staff were a bit whatever but still ok.

Liked: The sheets were so crisp. Big lockers in the rooms. The bunk beds are wooden & don't creak at every movement also, there is enough space between the top & bottom bunk that whoever is on the bottom doesn't feel smashed. I arrived very late to check-in and reception was very gracious.

Disliked: Nothing, it's a cute place.

Liked: The staff were very nice, helpful, quick to provide whatever was needed (information, beer, mezcal). As a result, guests were nice to each other, as well. Bathroom, bedroom, common room were all clean. Common room had good lighting and good WIFI.

Disliked: Semi-private room (shared bath) was small enough it was really hard to lay out suitcase and get around. Common room needs airing out to clear out frying / food smell. Showers need hooks inside - somewhere to put clothing, towel.

Liked: This is one of the BEST hostels I have ever stayed in. The staff is super friendly and attentive, and always on hand with lots of excellent suggestions and help. They can book tours (the best prices I've seen in town) or direct you to the best markets, or help you print your bus tickets. The breakfast of huevos al gusto is a real delight, and a treat I've never received in a hostel before. The roof terrace and garden is beautiful, with a gorgeous view. There are multiple wireless networks, with strong enough connections to watch movies. And there are barbecues, with mezcal and quesadillas! I highly recommend Casa Angel.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: This is an excellent hostel with spacious rooms and very clean bathrooms. The bathrooms are sex separate and in the bathrooms there are two large showers one toilet all with locking doors and then two basins, there was never a wait to use these facilities. The kitchen/dinning area is very large and relatively new. The breakfast is excellent with two cooks cooking your eggs for you to order, also; cereal, coffee, fresh bread, juice and fruit. The staff are friendly and will book tours for you and also the bus to Puerto Escondido this only cost $200p and picks you up at the door is worth the trip. The hostel has a cute roof top and there are plenty of small shops around to buy small necessities. The location is very good only a few blocks from all main attractions. Gay friendly.

Disliked: Nothing it was all great.
