I stayed at Hostal La Cochinilla Hostal at the end of March. I have been meaning to do a review for ages as the hostel and staff were brilliant. I traveled from Mexico City to Oaxaca and was horrendously ill. I booked into the hostel with 3 other people who I had met in Mexico City. I basically spent my whole stay in bed, but the staff were brilliant! They were all so friendly and helpful, they bought me medicine, gave me chamomile tea and checked if I was okay, they were so lovely and helpful, I really appreciated it when I was feeling awful. The hostel is really cool as well, very modern and clean, lovely beds and big lockers for storage. The breakfasts were great, you get freshly made bread, and homemade hot chocolate which is made in a really big pretty jug. There is a courtyard and a rooftop terrace. The location is good and close to the bus station which is handy. Thank you so much to the staff at Hostal La Cochinilla for looking after me. I can't review you on hostel world as I wasn't the one who made the booking. Thanks again. When I return to Oaxaca I will definitely stay with you guys!
