For the budget traveller, Hostal Pochon is an absolute steal. This home-away-from-home offers a number of accommodation types, including a junior suite where I stayed for 25 nights in October 2015. Confirming my reservation with a credit card was simple and effortless. Upon arrival, I was warmly welcomed by Miriam who fills in for Pochon’s convivial owner/operator, Erika Velásquez Durán....

The staff are volunteers, so tend to hang out with the guests and show them around. It was very easy to meet people here as a solo traveller, but not a loud party style hostel. And oh my god the breakfast is good, usually omelettes :) spacious rooms and well priced.

This small intimately quaint hostel on a quiet residential side street in a beautiful neighborhood of Oaxaca City is straight forward with no frills. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable at a very reasonable price. It is not a party spot and tends to attract an older more mature clientele who tend to stay to themselves not much sharing...

The room was excellent. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. Especially you don't speak Spanish. They would book your tickets, tell you where to catch a bus or a collective taxi. They can suggest places to visit and eat out. Breakfast was modest but better quality than at any other hostel I've ever stayed at. I don't think you...

Pros: The room was large (Junior Suite) and the bed was huge and very comfy. People on reception very friendly. Cons: Very noisey....the walls and the glass are paper thin....be prepared to hear everything. Breakfast was not worth it. Value for money is poor compared to other places we stayed in town. The water pressure in the bathroom was terrible...bit...

We stayed in a private double room, the louvered glass windows of which faced south looking out over the city. A large blooming jacaranda sheltered us overhead. The king bed was comfortable, the sheets crispy clean and fresh.We slept soundly with no loud voices, barking dogs, or traffic noise to wake us. While the room was spartan in its decorations,...

Nothing but good things to say. Location was great, close to a market, the Santo Domingo church and amazing roads to explore. The staff was so friendly, flexible and kind. One of my favorite parts was the outdoor lounge space to eat breakfast, hang and chat with people.

We, my boyfriend and I, stayed in this Hostel more than one week. Oaxaca is a wonderful City and the Hostel also. An accommodating Service, great Insider Tipps for the city, cheap Tours, hot water and a familiar feeling. The prices are perfekt for the Location (two minutes by Walk to a farmers market and five minutes to the centre)!...

My wife and I stayed here one night in December. We arrived 6 am in the morning, but they still gave us the doom, as soon as they could. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Hostel is certainly very backpacker friendly. We would say, it is a good value for money, if you are into backpacker places. We...
