There are only two types of transport, individually and collectively, I recommend its low cost by taking public transport, is usually a 7 passenger van. The walking distance is long, it is not advisable, from the airport to Hostel del Mercado is 5 miles - 8 kms.

The ticket of collective transport is sold inside the airport, has a fixed rate cost of the center, and the cost per person is approximately $ 90.00 pesos, mxn 8.00 U.S. Dollars.

Very good location, right next to a market, fairly close to second class bus station.
Nice hostel, cool balcony, good breakfast, helpful stuff, good value for money.


This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Oaxaca has a plethora of clean cheap hotels around the central zone area, this is another one. They are quite strict about check-out time, but otherwise Hostal Mercado is another to the long list of reasonable and cheap places to stay in Oaxaca
