I stayed at the Cielo Rojo in August, a few weeks after they opened. In addition to traditional hostile-style bunkbeds, they also offer private rooms. I stayed in a huge, immaculately clean private room with ensuite bathroom that was very quiet and comfortable. This made it perfect for me as a solo female traveler because I had the security and privacy of a hotel room all while getting to enjoy the social atmosphere of a hostile environment. During my stay I met most of the other guests (from all over the world) at breakfast, which is nutritious and plentiful. Hosts Efrain and Mauricio were gracious, knowledgeable, and incredibly helpful. I had a problem with my bank back in the U.S. and they bent over backwards to help me straighten it out in no time. I am well traveled and tend to shy away from goofy-gringo outtings, but they set me up on a wonderful half-day tour that was economical and the highlight of my trip. I will definitely stay here again on my next visit to Oaxaca.
