The hostel was very accommodating and the staff extremely helpful. They were relaxed, to the point of nearly being horizontal! Location was central without being too central. The breakfast provided many bananas and, yes, spreads. As a bonus the rooftop was nice and high and, yes, you can drink beers from there. Sadly marks must be deducted for the well... More

Let me start by saying that I really liked their breakfast: bread, honey, fruits, cereal and coffee - which is more than you get in most Mexican hostels. The room (4 bed mixed dorm) was ok. The room size was ok (not too small), it had a window and it was clean. The hostel has a nice patio where they... More

This is definitely one of the best hostels I have stayed at in Mexico. I didn't even know it existed- the taxi driver left me at the doorstep when we couldn't find the hostel I was searching for. I'm glad he did. Apparently this place only a little over a year old and still isn't listed in many guidebooks. Among... More

I arrived three days ago from Mexico City and decided to stay an extra 15. And no, not because Oaxaca is just Awesome. The location is ideal with attractions all around, and for me personally El Llano Park which is close by for exercise was really a bonus. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the water's hot. It's a very... More

Cielo Rojo is a great place to meet other travellers in Oaxaca. The staff a incredibly friendly and offer some great tips on what to see and where go in and around the city. It's also peefectly located just a few minute's walk from the centre of the city.

Great location and just a short walk to most of the main attractions, restaurants and bars! Staff was friendly and very helpful. The hostel was clean and well kept with lockers in the dorms. The hostel also had good Wifi reception. The breakfast was mediocre, but free. For better sleep, try to avoid booking the front upstairs dorm as it... More

Not many travelers when I stayed here but was nice to have a dorm to myself! Clean bathrooms and secure place (ring doorbell to enter). Breakfast available free every morning. Located near the town center and able to walk through much of the city. Would stay here again if every in Oaxaca again!

This is a very good hostel and the people who run it are great. They gave me loads of advice andwere most helpful. It is in a good location not far from the main bus station and the town itself. It was a bit of a walk to get to the collectivos to go to the places outside the city,... More

It was a great hostel. Only 20 min walk from the first class bus terminal was awesome. The hostel was beautiful and I really liked the openess of the building. The breakfast was great because there were toasts, corn flakes, milk, coffee, and even fresh fruits! And also free water refill was so helpful (so someone cheap like me don't... More

I stayed at this hostel with my partner in a private room. The rooms were simple, but it was really all we needed while we were there. The owners/staff were very friendly and reccomended places to go and even took a group of us out. They facilitated a friendly atmosphere and everyone in the hostel got together for drinks out...
