I loved our stay in that hostel.

It was clean, safe, nice kitchen, laundry facilities and most of all atmosphere and new breakfast everyday (included in the price, even for dorms)

I literately felt like home, the volunteers at the time were really friendly and helpful. We had a great time !

Ho and I forgot, the price of the laundry was one of the best we had, we had to clean all our clothes after semana santa, and the price was ridiculously low for about 12kg...

The day I go back to Oaxaca City, I know where to stay

Room Tip: Lower floors are cooler than the top in the sun all day

I'm so glad I stumbled upon this place! The staff (especially Erika!) are super friendly and informative, the guests are welcoming, the breakfast is great, rooms are clean, and the area is great. Pretty low key, more of a locals' neighborhood (with day market a block away) but the busy downtown is very close as well. Also very affordable, and with a big kitchen. You can't do better in Oaxaca.

Hostal Pochon is the perfect place to stay with just a 5 min stroll to the Zocalo. Breakfast is included and made fresh everyday from some great local cooks and they mix it up each day. Only the coffee, tea and fresh fruit salad stays the same. The rooms are cheap from only 125 pesos a night, they have a huge kitchen and there's some local markets right across the road to get your fresh produce! The vibe is more chilled than party but you can buy beer right around the corner and it has a great outdoor area to relax in. :) Don't miss out on HP while in Oaxaca the staff and volunteers are very welcoming and I'll be back one day for sure. Thanks Erika!!

We took the largest suite that Hostal Pochon offered, which was only a bit more expensive than a double room without bath. We had a huge comfortable bed, a sitting room, and our own bathroom, even a small balcony! The breakfasts dowstairs in the courtyard were good, and the mixed back-packer clientele was wonderful to spend time with. We were a short walk from all the sites, and yet in a quiet, not-too-touristic part of town.

I stayed for three nights. First, the location is good. Market is right next to the hostel and there is a mart near the hostel. It's close from downtown and is quiet at night. Second, room and bathroom are okay. Bed and sheets are clean and comfortable. Bathroom facility is old but hot shower works well. Third, common kitchen is clean and is convenient to use. Living room has wide screen TV and comfortable sofa. Last, staff are kind and friendly. They handled my check in quickly and gave information about looking around the city. It's not very fancy but good to stay.
