We really enjoyed our stay here! We rented a private room on the terraza for a week in Oaxaca. The hostel was close to the center of the city, clean, and the included breakfast was a nice way to get to know other guests. Everything was super clean and everyone who worked there was incredibly kind and helpful. Also, guests really respected the quiet hours and so it was really quiet at night (something that is very important to a light sleeper like me). We will be staying here again in the future.

I loved everything about this hostel: the location, the safety (for a woman traveling solo), the open spaces for connecting with other guests, the delicious, healthy free breakfasts. Wifi was strong throughout the grounds. Hot showers!

My partner and I enjoyed our stay at Azul Cielo. It was clean, and both the staff and fellow guests were friendly and helpful. We meet travelers at Azul Cielo who have become, I hope, lifelong friends. For the price, I can not imagine having a better place to stay. I gave the hostel 4 stars because the breakfasts left much to be desired. We appreciated having fresh fruit every day. However, the coffee was sparse and lukewarm. The only bread was processed white bread. We did not have a choice of foods and there was very little protein to be had. One day, french toast was served covered with white sugar and was not eatable. There were so many other wonderful things about Azul Cielo that the poor food would not keep me from returning. The next time though, I would make other plans for breakfast.

We loved the inner garden and really enjoyed the general calmness of the hostel. The staff was great and our room was very clean. The center is just a small walk and it is nice to discover new spots along the way. We would definitely recommend it!

Azul Cielo is a really special place. Rooms surround a colorful garden courtyard, and the staff is friendly and helpful to an extreme (shoutouts to Eli and Sergio!). I'm older than your average backpacker, and was grateful that this place was very social but in a chill way - not a party hostel. Free delicious breakfast is a good time to meet other travelers of diverse ages and nationalities. Clean and COVID-safe. Staff did everything they could to make my visit easy and fun. Dorm rooms are about US $10/day - can't imagine a better bargain. Les agradezco mucho Azul Cielo!

I stayed in the 10 person dorm, and had a great experience. There are 5 bunk beds, each with their own storage locker. The room gets cleaned daily by hostel staff. The shower water is hot, and the daily breakfast is great! They also offer two different tours to landmarks near Oaxaca city. A note on the breakfast: It starts at 0830. I do NOT have a problem with this, but I witnessed some other travelers get really irate over the fact. Sounded like they were from Europe...Anyways, if you like to eat when it's still dark out, my advice would be to try another hostel:)

Response from Hostal Azul Cielo Oaxaca, Director General at Azul Cielo Hostel
Responded Jul 6, 2021
Thanks for the comment Riley! We are glad you enjoyed your first hostel experience! The breakfast scheduale is indeed a balance between a good service and not bothering the guests to early, this because the breakfast area isn't far from the dormitories. We can't please everybody... but we are delighted to know you liked the breakfast and had a great stay! Hope to have you again soon here at the hostel!! Safe travels! Azul Cielo Team

Azul Cielo was by far the best Hostel experience we‘ve had. The hostel and the rooms are beautiful and charming. The staff is super helpful and friendly. When my daughter forgot one of her beloved pencils in the breakfast area, the staff found it and gave it back to her the next morning. And regarding the breakfast: there are fruits, cereals, coffee, tea etc. and one tasteful main course that changed daily. The hostel is located in a not super touristy but authentic area, very near to the best spots of Oaxaca. And you can get all of that for a very good price! Furthermore we were especially thankful to have had Sergio at the reception, who helped us out at any time during our stay and even afterwards with anything we needed. He really saved the day for us! We’ve never met a more helpful and friendly person on our travels and we‘ll gladly return to Oaxaca and go to Azul Cielo again.

I really enjoyed my stay at this small, quaint hostel. The staff were amazing (Max is my hero), and I enjoyed the diversity of the other travelers here. After staying a couple of days, you really start to feel a sense of family/community. The rooms were comfortable and the water was hot and pressure was very good. I enjoyed the short walk to all of the restaurants and markets, however, I wouldn’t recommend staying here if you aren’t willing to walk .5 miles to get to these things. I would definitely stay at Azul Cielo again. Thank you to the staff that made every bit of my experience more meaningful and enjoyable.

Oaxaca is a great city and this hostel the perfect place to stay while visiting it. I enjoyed it very much. The atmosphere is great and it's easy to meet other travelers. The bar is nice and the staff friendly and helpful. They organise great tours, highly recommendable and the facilities are great as well. It's a bit further away from the bus terminal but still in a good walking distance from the "city centre". The breakfast was great and varied each day with a local typicality. I'd stay again!
