Great location for getting into and out of Oaxaca by bus. Central location for walking around Oaxaca city.  Very friendly staff.  Very clean rooms and communal areas.  Good inside and outside chill areas, good wifi in all areas. Mixed dorm/private room accommodation. Lovely garden area. Good breakfast.

Dislikes

Could improve their knowledge and increase their tours provided by others.

The atmosphere of this hostel is very friendly. The rooms are clean and the amenities all work well. The staff was very helpful and eager to offer assistance. The only thing missing was air conditioning, but we didn't need it during our stay. The location is a little of a walk from the town centre, but overall this is a nice place to spend some time.

Room Tip: Communicate with the staff what you want, they are very helpful.

Beautiful building and nice location, the staff were extremely helpful, the food nice, water hot and rooms and common area very colourful. Only fault would be a very small kitchen not really set up for making own meals.

We loved this place because of the cheerful mexican colorful decor. We also liked the nice sitting areas for hanging out with other travelers. The breakfasts were delicious and regional. We were concerned that it would not be close enough to the center, but it was only 5 minutes walking because the colonial streets are so tiny. Plus lots of interesting things to see when you walk in Oaxaca. You can tell the owners go out of their way to make guest feel at home. Since we were a couple we had a private room with our own shower. They even had candles in the room and they even made our bed in the morning!

I had such a great time at this hostel that I couldn't leave! The staff were very friendly, even showed me some great places in town. The breakfast was SO good! Everything works well, water, wi-fi, great location in a beautiful town. The atmosphere of the space is relaxed, peaceful and beautiful. Aesthetically stunning. Truly the best hostel I have stayed in. I stayed for almost three weeks, it was so good.

It was a pleasure staying at the azul cielo. great staff that was very helpful and good room. the breakfast was pretty great too. so no complaints at all. the only drawback is that since i was there for the film festival it tended to be a slight walk from the santa domingo.

We stayed here for four nights during the Día de los Muertos and enjoyed very much.
The staffs are all kind and very helpful. They have cozy garden, clean rooms, wonderful breakfast, good wi-fi connection, hot water. It's only 10-15 minutes to center. There are big supermarket and local active market close to the hostel where you can buy fresh vegetables, fruits, excellent oaxaca cheese!
