The staff were friendly and there were many interesting (in the positive sense) fellow guests to hang out with. When I was there it wasn't a boozing crowd but people who enjoy travel. There was morning yoga on the rooftop at the time I was there but I don't know if that is a regular thing. Breakfast was fine if not extravagant. I took a private room which was clean and comfortable, but also felt a bit of a fishbowl, with the window facing the courtyard. The location is very strategic.

Nice hostel with a helpful staff and great open areas and rooftop. Walking distance from everything! The lockers are small and the breakfast is very simple but fair.

Really good hostel in the centre with a friendly atmosphere, there are few bathrooms/showers/toilets and the lockers are fairly small, but otherwise it's pretty perfect.

We loved this hostel! Booked for one night and stayed a week and rebooked for our return to Oaxaca. Great party atmosphere in the courtyard where everyone relaxes. Wonderful helpful staff, so caring when we were sick ad they even let me host yoga on the rooftop, which was a real bonus. Can't recommend enough!

Great staff and atmosphere! I stayed here for (only) a night with a friend of mine and we both wished we could have stayed longer. Susi, Rodrigo and Kevin run the place very smoothly, and they are very nice and chill people. Anything you need, let them know and they are very helpful. I highly recommend this hostel!

I was there on a Saturday so the karaoke bar across the street might be heard until past midnight.

It's a great hostel!! Lots of open areas to meet people, the staff are super helpful and the rooftop is hectic. Walking distance from everything, would recommend this for people who are keen to meet new people and up for a good time !

Cielo Rojo was a great experience! It was a great environment to be around. Plus, the staff and amazingly dedicated and extremely helpful in giving tips about the city, tours, and anything one needs help with. The owner, Susan, is a really great and chill person that opens the door to you and makes you feel at home.

Kitchen is very good, tours from hostel are cheap. The stuff is very helpful with advise about traveling buy yourself. The hot water seem to run out really fast during shower...dorms are not locked but they have lockers and storage. Privet room is really nice and cheap! Overall was very nice and good value for money.

Love this hostel! I've stayed here many times and love it every time. The atmosphere is great - really social, always someone new to talk to or go out with. The owners are also super helpful and know the city and surrounding areas very well, and they go out of their way to make sure you have a great stay. I highly recommend this hostel, and have to several friends and fellow travelers.

This hostel is amazing in many senses. The location is great, just a few blocks from the main square and hot spots in Oaxaca. The staff is very helpfull and kind, always able to assist and give good recommendations to do or see in Oaxaca and other places around. Breakfast is good enough, the internet connection is good, the kitchen is great. It is really easy to make new friends due to the great atmosphere and the patio in the middle.

Las instalaciones muy malas, se necesita que lo remodelen. Sucio el bano y el staff no muy atento que digamos. No vuelvo a regresar, hay mejores hostales en Oaxaca.

Pretty little hostel with helpful staff and a good breakfast, situated in a good location But our bed linen was not very clean - there were hairs on it and the hostel itself was a little chaotic.
