Luz de Luna Hostel
Ranked #24 of 122 Speciality Lodging in Oaxaca
Reviewed 27 July 2017 via mobile

There was a stair missing near the reception, next to the wifi password, and next to a big sculpture me and my friends swear was already cracked. I fell down the broken square and it broke straight away, the guy was friendly but it was the facilities fault I fell, charging me $400 because it couldn't be fixed? Then we went out for lunch and came back and it was fixed, exactly how it was waiting for the next person. Also the daytime rate was a lot, they charge you extra at every turn. The bus they booked for me was 50mins late, not fun at 11:30pm. I just had an all around terrible experience here and feel I got scammed. Left $600mxc lighter, and the bus was a mini bus anyway, so do yourself a favour and book at the station, it's half the price!

I stayed at a mixed dorm with 8 beds, it was clean and comfortable. the hostel is nice and calm, with the plants and hammocks it creates a chilled out environment for you to rest after the trips. the staff is very kind and you will feel good to be around them.
it's a great option for the prices they offer.

A very memorable hostel in a nice location. There is a lovely kitchen, with lots of room to cook and a marketplace situated close, so it's perfect to pick up somefresh goods from the market and cook fresh food. The lobby has an interesting open ceiling, great for just hanging around. The rooms were a bit dark, could have been a little bit cleaner I guess. Overall a nice place to spend a few nights.

Good location, staff fairly friendly, but amenities/condition are quite run down/neglected. Cracking paint, very dirty under the beds (full of dust bunnies, so when u store your backpack underneath it comes out covered in dust). Bathrooms are pretty run down, leaky at times, though not the worst for Latin American hostels. The hammocks and cats lounging around are cute. Still, it feels like it's been a while since someone gave this place a loving hand of TLC (or a fresh coat of paint/speckling).

Stayed: January 2016

If you looking for a laid back, clean, safe acommodation a couple minutes walk from Zocalo, don't look any further !

Lalo and Eduardo create a bit of paradise here for everybody. They were the pioneers, who started acommodate backpackers in there nice building with a beautiful green courtyard in the middle of it. They have lots of experiences, so they definitely know, what do travellers need. When you enter you feel straight the special homey wibe.
The perfect location,  the little zen garden, colourful spacey rooms, the clean bathrooms and the kitchen also helps to slow down a bit.
They even have 2 lovely cats and a cool friendly dog, which helped me to feel at home and be part of the family.
Thanks Lidia, Gustavo for the great time, useful infos.....lots of smiles ;)

I highly recommended this reasonable priced hostel, if you looking for a perfect homey basecamp either, if you want to slow down a bit or backpacking through Mexico !

Happy travells,
Attila from Hungary
