I understand the person who made the bad review about theft had the wrong place and is going to try to get his review removed this week. It´s a real shame when that happens bad for business and bad for travellers that read it. I´ve stayed here from time to time over the past two years and I couldn´t feel...

Never leave any valuables in your room. When you make a complaint about stolen items all they tell you is that thefts have never occurred in that hotel. Oh! and on your free breakfast don't even dare ask for a second cup of coffee or water, they will look at you as if you are crazy. The waiter they have...

The hostel is located next to a nice little park El Llano close to Zocalo and at the same time a comfortable distance away from all the noisy goings on in Zocalo. The customer service was friendly and efficient overall. In the morning, the front desk staff does not speak English, but in the afternoon there is an English speaking...

This was such an amazing hostel. My partner and I stayed in Mexico City in a decent hostel. We arrived in Oaxaca expecting similar accommodations. We were both blown away. The people that work there are amazingly nice and accommodating. The hostel itself was comfortable, and personal. I am coming back to Oaxaca soon, and will definitely stay there again!

Hostel Don Nino was good value at MXN$150. The staff are helpful and pretty much everything in the hostel is new. The kitchen and rooftop terrace were great, but closed fairly early, at 9.30pm. Breakfast was also good. The common areas were great. There were at least 4 large flat-screen televisions, each with cable. WiFi worked well and the computers...

Outstanding facility. Very clean and when we were there, quiet. Good breakfast, different each day. Hot water 24 hours. Staff very friendly and customer oriented. They seemed to work hard at keeping at least one common use computer functional for internet. It is a distance to the zocalo (approx 1.5km) that is not necessarily a bad thing and it is...
