Located in a quiet area of Oaxaca, only 10-15 minutes walk from the Zócalo, this hostel is decorated with beautiful Mexican motives. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I was there during the celebrations of the Day of the Dead, and they organized a cooking class to bring the guests closer to this wonderful Mexican tradition. Room was very... More

I spent one month at Azul Cielo in downtown Oaxaca. It was glorious. Sylvia and German are brother & sister, who take wonderful care of their hostel and guests. It is a great location with a city bus across the street, and about 12 minute walk to the town square. It was quiet and very clean. They have dormitories and... More

They also speak enough English to have a conversation easily which is really handy if you don't have much Spanish. The hostel is... More

Everything was great about this hostal, but there are two negative things which are the reason I cannot rate it with 5 stars. This are noise - depending on your roomates. In the room there was practiclly hard to sleep, because of the bad quality of the mattresses. Stuff is very helpful and kind

This was one of the best hostels I have stayed in in Latin America and around the world. It was super clean, the beds were comfortable. It had a beautiful garden to relax in. A big open kitchen with long dining table. A huge buffet breakfast. But best of all was the warm family atmosphere. The staff were very helpful... More
