Although there are hotels in Oaxaca with better facilities, owner Angel has infused his own personality into this place and turned it into a very pleasant place to stay. Started only just two years ago, this hostel dons small pieces off all work on its blue walls and there is a central courtyard where guests have breakfast and can have sit down to a chat in the day.
Owner Angel is truly heaven sent. The university graduates who speaks fluent English, he is extremely helpful in advising you how to get to a site by the easiest route. Angel has also recently begun a series of weekly programs at the hostel. On select days of the week, free Spanish-language classes, Salsa lessons, and movie nights are offered.
Angel is a colorful character himself, with many entertaining stories to share about his involvement in the performing arts. He sure to ask him about the time he sat inside a box in the Zocalo.
I met some of the most amazing people on this trip right here. Where else can you find a German engineer and a cyclist cycling from Guatemala to New York in the same place at the same time?
at the time of writing, a bed at the hostel costs US$10/night, complimentary breakfast and internet included.
if you arrive to Oaxaca from the First Class Bus Station ADO, you can take a 5 minutes taxi ride for 20-30 pesos.
