Liked: Really enjoyed the common spaces which included a living room area, the pool room, and the courtyard terrace. The breakfast was also perfect, a nice continental buffet.

Disliked: There were not secure lockers in the four person female dorm, nor a key to the room - items did not feel completely secure.

Liked: The staff is so amazingly helpful. They even called the van to pick us up when we left for Puerto Escondido so we didnt have to drag our luggage to the collectivo. I had friends staying at a cheaper hostel two blocks away, but i much preferred to pay the extra 40 pesos a night for a super clean hostel with great beds and an amazing breakfast. STAY HERE!! Steady wifi connection, which is hard to get in Puerto Escondido or on the Oaxaca Coast so enjoy it here

Disliked: Honestly, nothing. Weak coffee, which is such a silly complaint, that tells you how much i enjoyed this hostel. Oh and on a saturday it was quite loud as its a courtyard but that's inevitable anywhere in the centre of Oaxaca.

Liked: For my Oaxaca trip, this place served it purpose quite well, actually too well, since it was hard to leave Oaxaca. Especially the friendship provided by the hostel staff, in the first place dear Jorge is awesome. They are really nice guys trying to keep you comfortable. Jorge took us to discover the wild nightlife of Oaxaca (on Saturdays). I felt like visiting my friends. The patio is perfect place to meet other travelers.

Disliked: More plugs for charging bloody energy consuming electronic devices would be great.

Liked: Awesome Hostel! Efrain, Mauricio and Gorge - the owners of the hostel - are too friendly and it's great to just spend the evening having drinks in the open courtyard in the inner of the hostel. Apart from that, the hostel is just 4 small blocks from the Zócalo, what is like 4 minutes walking. They also provide rich continental breakfast and for the "dias de muertos" they even built up a shrine, which made you feel like being in a Mexican family. Altogether: clean, friendly and safe hostel with great owners in a good location. Would recommend it to everyone who's looking for a great time in Oaxaca!

Disliked: Marc left no negative feedback.

Liked: I stayed in the single room and it was huge and comfortably set up! The bathroom was very clean, as was the entire hostel. And I thought the room was great value for a private. The guys that work there are lovely and were always helpful. and the location is great, just a few blocks from the zocolo.

Disliked: It was a little quiet. But when I stayed they had only been open for a week. So I assume things will have picked up by now because the location is very good.

Liked: These guys have only just started the hostel and when we stayed there, and were obviously still a little underprepared, but they could be more helpful and welcoming. Location is great only a few blocks from the Zocalo. Great setting, good little courtyard and games area.

Disliked: Nothing really, once the guys have put the finishing touches to the property it will be all go
