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

This hostel is remarkable not only for the good location or the great atmosphere but the staff is very helpful and they have the accurate information of what to do, where to go, what to eat, etc. Great recommendations in the center and surrounding communities.

My girlfriend & I had 2 nights here for our very brief stop in Oaxaca. We took a private room so can't comment on the dorms however our room was very large & clean which are the key things we look for. The breakfast wasn't anything special but there was freshly brewed coffee & full kitchen facilities so we were... More

The overall service and experience was average for what we paid, nevertheless there are some things i should mention: On the positive side: The hostel has a beautyful and comfortable patio, really bright and at night it is really quiet. On the negative side: The matresses are quite uncomfortable, the pillows we got were pretty bad too, and the bed... More

Good location, friendly staff, nice and quiet but rooms were really dirty and they badly need new mattresses!! We all woke up with back aches, springs are right in your back, all of them just as bad as each other.

I really enjoyed this hostel for its community feel. I was traveling by myself, but found lots of fun people to hang out with and enjoy the city. The staff was very helpful, and super considerate. It has a very good vibe.

It had been a while since I stayed at a hostel and decided to book the private room at Cielo Rojo. The hostel is centrally located and just a couple of blocks from the main plaza. A comfy bed awaited me in the private room with its own bathroom. Yummy breakfast with local and organic coffee in a sunny patio... More
