Lonely Planet review
Though set on the city's far northern edge, La Villada is worth considering for its good facilities, helpful English-speaking staff and spacious premises. The mostly adobe-built rooms boast good wooden furniture, though they lack fans or mosquito screens. The hostel will send a taxi to the bus station if you call on arrival. Once you’re here, they’ll tell you about buses to/from downtown.
There’s no guest kitchen but there is a restaurant (8am-7pm) with breakfasts and light dishes (M$35–65), plus an excellent swimming pool, a bar, a nice yoga room and a temascal (M$350 per person).
Our independent authors have visited La Villada Inn Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Oaxaca City.
