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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

“The 4 bed dorm rooms have no lockers, but a locked outside door. The bigger dorms are have lockers, but are louder and colder at night.”

“The best dorm is the mixed 8 since it's not facing the Street”

“The four person female room was a bit noisy, but I think that has to do with its location near the city center.”
