We ended up staying here at the recommendation of another hostel in Mazunte. We were pleasantly surprised to see how nice and clean all the rooms and bathrooms were. The entire hostel is very colorful and beautifully decorated with a really nice courtyard and common kitchen area which definitely facilitated conversation between travelers. We stayed in one of the smaller... More

I was really quite impressed with the Azul Cielo hostel in Oaxaca. It's about a 8-10 minute walk from the Cathedral, on a quiet road in the center. I stayed here for 4 nights (2 in dorm, 2 in private room). They have a lovely quiet courtyard, clean shared bathrooms/showers for the dorms, free wifi, simple continental breakfast included (toast,... More

I don’t know really what it is that gives this place its magic. It may be the wonderful garden where hummingbirds come and feed; or the beautiful colors blending perfectly with the blue sky, the warm and friendly staff always ready to help you, or the delicious breakfast fresh made every day, every day different… It is simply a wonderful...

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

We were here for 5 nights but only because we were there during the semana santa and every where else was full. We are 4 people travelling and we had booked a four bed dorm for us. The dorm normally is used as a female dorm but it was very poor room: no lockers, very shaky beds, no mirror and... More

We stayed here for three nights in April and both think it was an awesome hostel. The staff are really friendly and made sure we knew where to find good food places, supermarkets, laundromats and shops nearby. 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
