We stayed in a four person dorm. This place has basic dorms, nice common area with a kitchen. A few minutes from the center of the city and some great coffee shops. It's a solid option for budget travelers.

We stayed in the hostel's only private room. It was nice and large, with a reasonably comfortable bed, two tables, a lamp and a dresser. Location was great and easy walking distance from just about everything we wanted to do in the city. All the rooms face the courtyard and there are sometimes people drinking or playing music later at... More

Not too loud or too quiet. The beds weren't the best but the hostel was clean. Breakfast was basic but good. There is also a nice roof terrace. I also did the Mezcal tour while i was there, which is organized through the hostel.

Stayed in a 4 person room with a friend. Great and helpful staff. Beautiful rooftop night view. The hostel has a lovely courtyard, a perfect vibe, and a location that cannot be beat. If back in Oaxaca, we would definitely stay again.

Very friendly staff, relaxed and chilled environment and nice and clean installations. Just a couple of blocks from Oaxaca´s city center. Stood there on a private room with my girl and the prices for private rooms are really cheap comparing to the near by hostels. Definitely recommend it

My husband and I booked five nights at Cielo Rojo over Day of the Dead based on great online reviews. A few days before we were due to arrive I had a look at the recent reviews (as we had booked months in advance) and was a little surprised by some of the bad comments so lowered my expectations however...

The beds were the worst we have come across so far in Mexico. To make matters worse the music was pumping until mid morning. The hostel manager was helpful and the breakfast was decent. The Day of the Dead tour we did run by the hostel was poorly run and not very informative - more just transport.

I stayed two days in Oaxaca in Cielo Rojo, there are many different backpackers all over the world which let you feel like home, it is located close to the city center and the staff is friendly but sometimes away. Furthermore the beds are really old and I cannot recommend a tour made by the hostel which is really expensive.... More
