We were here for 4 nights and I was a bit underwhelmed after the reviews. Breakfast, despite saying it starts at 8 was ready about 9 and was just coco pops and a tiny plate of cooked something for all the guests to share (I didn't really understand that?). We ended up just skipping it in the end because we... More

This place was EXACTLY what we hoped for. My friend and I were on a trip around Mexico and we wanted an experience at a local comunity, in a very calm and unique place. Oaxaca was amazing on its own, but this hostel was the cherry on the top! The area outside the rooms is so lovely, and calm, you... More

This is a really nice hostel with nice rooms and a great garden and space to chill out. The breakfast was really tasty and the staff were great. It is about 15 min walk to the centre. The only downside was the v slow internet. If you need online access it can be frustrating but overall a good hostel.

I stayed here for about five days and my overall experience was great. Nice people, great atmosphere, good breakfast and a perfect spot to relax after exploring the centre or the surrounding attractions. They also offer free bikes for two hours (for more than two hours they charge a very reasonable price) The staff was extremely helpful. Good tourist information... More

My husband and I are a little older now but still like the atmosphere of quiet hostels and this one is a gem. It's brightly painted with a nice garden area and great kitchen. We stayed in a clean, adequately furnished private room with bath. The staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good each morning. It's everything... More

I wanted to like Azul Cielo. I really did. The signs about house rules, which other reviews have complained about, didn't bother me at all. I barely noticed them, actually. And the staff was all VERY FRIENDLY. And it was clean. And comfortable. And in a good location. And the courtyard is very relaxing. But.... it was noisy. And I... More

This was one of our favorite hostels over the course of 2 months backpacking. The quiet and serene vibe of the place suited us perfectly as we really value a good night's sleep, and it made for a very welcome change from the party hostels, while still having a really nice social side based on great conversation with fellow travellers...

Beautiful hostel however signs and rules up everywhere which are kind of condescending- like the is not a party hostel- yeah we know, that's why we are here... That kind of pissed me off and wrecked the relaxed atmosphere they are trying to achieve...Also bit far to walk by yourself to the centre at night ( well I didn't feel... More

AzulCielo Hoste... O, Gerente at Azul Cielo Hostel, responded to this review

Thanks for your review. To address your complaint. The reason why we have signs indicating silence after 11pm is because we are a small hostel and the common areas are near the dorms and private rooms. So to provide the service of a hostel which also is sleeping, we set the rule for silence at this reasonable hour and try... More

Colorful patio and beautiful setting, BUT the overly strict rules and signs everywhere like 'if your guests stay after 9pm, you pay the night for them' and exaggerated checkout policy kind of spoiled it a little.

Hi Michael! Thanks for your review. To respond to your complaint. The rule we have set for visitors is a rule to protect our guests. Only until 10pm there is someone reponsible at the reception and we always tolorate visits until that hour. For this simple reason after 10pm there is no one responsable to check what the visitors are... More
