I visited Oaxaca over the Day of the Dead weekend in November. I'm used to staying in hostels and my friends and I were attracted by the price and location. There is a kitchen for self-catering although we didn't use it, and a courtyard which is lovely in the sun. The breakfast was good, with fresh fruit, bread, coffee and...

Social common space. Computers. The downside: The common room is on the other side of the dorm rooms, and the dorm rooms have a very thin metal door that provides...

All of the staff here were very fair to me, especially considering the fact that they helped me with a problem on my HI membership card. I was the one getting upset over a mistake that Mundo Joven Catedral made, but all of the staff, including the manager, kept calm and assisted me. I do appreciate that. Having said this,...

We stayed in a private with ensuite - the room was a decent size, with an extra bunk bed for groups or families, but, the bed was pretty uncomfortable, and there was a huge gap above the door, which opened up into the courtyard so the room really lacked any privacy. the shower was a bit temperamental, cold on the...

We appretiate your review, we will work as soon as possible to solve about shower. The hostel is a typical mexican house (rooms around a patio) so, in some rooms when you open door you get to the open green sunny patio with tables and chairs. Thanks for your review.

I spent just one weekend but it was nice, cheap and comfortable. People is very kind. Maybe the only thing I didn't like was that my bedroom remained unclean. Nice location and paintings on the walls.

Great you had such a nice experience in our hostel. We clean all rooms everyday from 11am to 1 pm, if someone is inside till 1pm, we dont clean it for respect of the guest. For ecology care, we change sheets every 3 days, or if you want to change everyday we can do it. Thanks for your review.

The place is ok. The breakfast doesn't have much to offer if you can't eat gluten. The wifi doesn't reach most room and is terribly slow. There was some issues with the hot water and my room had no windows. My shower was not clean (hairs from previpus guest). I found the pictures on the website misleading. Overall, it is...
