I am staying at Hostel Paulina for a number of days. I had originally planned to stay only one night in Oaxaca to break up the journey from Mexico City to Guatemala, but because of the atmosphere of this hostel and the city itself, I have decided to prolong my stay. At the moment there seems to be very few guests which makes the hotel feel more like a personal palace. The staff are very friendly and professional, the rooms and communal areas are clean and the breakfast is great. The only disadvantage to staying in such a nice place is the temptation to spend more time in the hotel rather than exploring the city! I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone.
